Campaign To Allow Foreign-Born Presidential Candidates

Sponsored by:

Californians will soon see cable T-V ads urging them to back an amendment to let Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and other foreign-born citizens run for president.

The ads start airing tomorrow.

They come from a California-based group that wants to amend the U-S Constitution, which limits the presidency to people born in the U-S.

Schwarzenegger was born in Austria but became a U-S citizen in 1983.

Schwarzenegger has said he´d consider running for president if the Constitution allowed but he hasn´t pushed for a constitutional change.

Four proposed amendments are circulating in Congress, but none has advanced.

Constitutional amendments require congressional approval and ratification by 38 states.
