Things you learn editing other things

One of the dubious benefits of editing is that one learns a lot of not-particularly-useful, but still interesting, trivia.  I ran across this factoid adding a footnote for English speakers to a translation of a book on Mexican sex workers.

See if you can figure out what these three guys have in common (and the answer has nothing to do with Mexico, or sex workers):

      Damn… you’re good! And all three had foreign nationality from birth. Bosé is unusual in that he was born with dual citizenship (his father is a Spaniard, his mother Italian, and now he’s a Colombian), McCain’s father was a U.S. Navy officer, and born on what was considered U.S. territory at the time, and Fuente’s father was the Mexican Ambassador to Panama.
