Four years after electing its first black president, the U.S. could soon have its first presidential nominee whose father was born in Mexico.
It’s already been published: Mitt Romney’s father is Mexican. George Romney was born in 1907 in an American colony in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.
This could could make his son, Mitt, today’s favorite to be the GOP presidential candidate, a potential Mexican citizen, with full rights.
Check out any official Mexican guide for “paisanos” – those living in the U.S. – that now appear to have been written with Romney’s father in mind: “Dear Paisano: If you are Mexican and have children born in the United States, by registering them in any Mexican consulate they will have dual nationality.”
