1. Foreign born citizens are allowed to be Senators. Check this section (Article I, Section 3) of the U.S. Constitution to find your answer.

"No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen."
