38. Just went to findlaw and found this for you

It is 8 United States Code, Section 1401, which clearly says birth in the U.S. and has no requirement that a parent be born in the U.S. In fact many of the sections show you can be a citizen with one parent born in the U.S. when you yourself have been born abroad

And for giggles, birth in Panama

Section 1403

I had found that earlier. To prove McCitizen was a citizen, it would technically require not just his BC, but one of his parents. But in his case did they worry? :rofl:
