Parents cannot renounce U.S. citizenship on behalf of their minor children. Before an oath of renunciation will be administered under Section 349(a)(5) of the INA, a person under the age of eighteen must convince a U.S. diplomatic or consular officer that he/she fully understands the nature and consequences of the oath of renunciation, is not subject to duress or undue influence, and is voluntarily seeking to renounce his/her U.S. citizenship.

I've actually met Berg, and he's basically just a giant attention whore. He attended one of our local Democratic Area Meetings, and he and his son almost got into a fistfight over nothing. He ran for a local office, and he's so awful that we Dems actually went door-to-door to campaign AGAINST him (fortunately, someone else won).

Ugh. Anything for attention, eh, Phil?
