Kamala Harris is a United States citizen by birth and is qualified to serve as the U.S. vice-president.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' chapter 3 - U.S.Citizen from birth (INA 301 and 309) mentions that a person born in the United States is a U.S. Citizen at birth. It includes a person born to a member of an Indian, Eskimo, Aleutian, or other aboriginal tribes. Kamala Harris was born on October 20, 1964, in Oakland, California, making her a natural-born U.S. Citizen. Her father is a Jamaican, and her mother is an Indian.
Several legal experts cite that the Vice President has the same eligibility requirements as the President. Hence, Ms. Harris needs to be a natural-born citizen, at least 35 years old, and a resident in the United States for at least 14 years. She meets all the criteria and hence she is eligible to be the vice-president of the United States. Further, anyone born in the U.S. and subject to its jurisdiction is a natural-born citizen, regardless of their parents' citizenship, says the Cornell Legal Information Institute.
