The Tribune challenges me to prove that I am a citizen? (“Due process for all,” June 26).

Can you please explain how a birth certificate could “prove” my citizenship? I have a certificate showing that a person of the name I use was born in the United States on the date that I claim as my birthday. But there’s nothing to connect me to that person. I cannot “prove” that I am he.

I challenge birthers (and the editorial board) to prove their own citizenship!
