The question posed by Matt Berdahl at Moorhead High School in Minnesota brought up distant memories of my nationality classes at the Border Patrol Academy in 1960. I no longer have access to that study material, but here is what I vaguely recall: Such a child would be considered a foundling and would be presumed to be a USC until he/she reaches majority. At that time, if the presumption has not been successfully rebutted, the citizenship becomes permanent, notwithstanding subsequent findings. This then, would seem to imply that he/she would have the permanent status of "natural born citizen" and with it, eligibility to run for US President. This dusty memory is, of course, needing better research by those with younger energies. It should be somewhere in the leading subsections of nationality law.
