Arizona passes law requiring presidential candidates to show proof of citizenship

Friday, April 15, 2011

Arizona state lawmakers have given the green light to a bill that would require presidential candidates to prove they are U.S. citizens before they can be put on the state ballot.

Arizona State Representative Carl Seel says the bill, which still has to be signed by Governor Jan Brewer, is not targeting President Obama. Instead, he says, it's about future elections and the integrity of the constitution.

Even so, potential Presidential Candidate Donald Trump has given a thumbs up to the bill. Trump has recently been attacking President Obama saying he wants more proof of Mister Obama's Honolulu birth.
