Adopted girl from China seeks change in US Constitution so she can run for president

Girl born in China seeks change in US Constitution so she can run for president

WBZ-TV reports that Alena Mulhern testified on Wednesday before a Massachusetts State House committee that everyone should have the opportunity to lead the country. Alena was adopted from and moved to Kingston when she was 10 months old.

Only natural-born citizens can be eligible for the presidency.

Alena is trying to persuade state lawmakers to pass a resolution asking the U.S. Congress to amend the Constitution to state that natural-born citizens include foreign-born adopted children.

She asked the committee to consider “all the great candidates” who cannot serve their country due to “a law that came into existence more than 200 years ago.”
