The debate over whether or not Senator Ted Cruz is eligible for the U.S. Presidency is about to end. It has now been confirmed that Senator Ted Cruz is neither a “U.S. natural born Citizen” or a “legal U.S. citizen.”

According to all relative legal citizenship documentation available at present, Senator Ted Cruz was born Rafael Edward Cruz, a legal citizen of Canada on December 22, 1970 and maintained his legal Canadian citizenship from birth until May 14, 2014, 43 years later.

The Cruz Campaign for the U.S. Presidency has claimed that Senator Ted Cruz was a “citizen at birth” via his U.S. mother and a “dual citizen” of both Canada and the United States in 1970 and that by renouncing his Canadian citizenship in 2014, he would become eligible for the Oval Office.

There are several problems with this claim… which make the claim false

  1. “citizen at birth” is a 14th Amendment naturalization term based upon “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.”

Senator Cruz was born in Canada, subject to the jurisdiction of Canada. Further, any U.S. citizen       by virtue of   the 14th Amendment only, is a “citizen” and not a “natural born Citizen,” as you will see below.(Source is Cornell Law on the 14th)

  1. “dual citizenship” was prohibited in Canada in December 1970. (Source is Canadian Law)

From May 22, 1868 until December 31, 1946, all residents of Canada were British subjects. There was no such thing as a Canadian citizen or Canadian citizenship until January 1, 1947.

From January 1, 1947 until February 15, 1977, Canadian law prohibited “dual citizenship.” Foreign parents giving birth to a child in Canada in 1970 were forced to choose between Canadian citizenship only, or citizenship in another country, and to declare that with Canadian officials at the time of birth. The parents of Ted Cruz chose and declared “Canadian citizenship” for Rafael declared “Canadian citizenship” for Rafael Edward  Cruz.

  1. United States laws make it possible to be a legal U.S. citizen by only the following means…

a) NATURAL BORN CITIZEN – “As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.” (The Natural Law as understood by the Founders in Article II of the US Constitution

b) NATIVE BORN CITIZEN – All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. (The 14th Amendment definition for “citizen”)

c) NATURALIZED CITIZEN – the legal act or process by which a non-citizen in a country may acquire citizenship or nationality of that country. It may be done by a statute, without any effort on the part of the individual (aka anchor baby), or it may involve an application and approval by legal authorities, (such as a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) form filed with the US State Department at the time of birth). (This includes “anchor baby” or “citizen at birth” born here or abroad, under the 14th) Source is U.S. State Department

  1. “dual citizens” are prohibited from being “natural born Citizens” as it pertains to Article II requirements for the Oval Office.

As the stated purpose of the Article II “natural born Citizen” requirement for the Oval Office is to prevent anyone with foreign allegiance at birth from ever occupying the Oval Office, and all “dual citizens” at birth are born with “dual national allegiance” at birth. The mere condition of “dual citizen at birth” would be a direct violation of the known purpose and intent of the natural born Citizen requirement in Article II. Source is a letter from Founder John Jay in proposing the NBC requirement for the Oval Office.

Now, Senator Ted Cruz has repeatedly stated that he has never “naturalized” to the United States, which eliminated the possibility that Ted Cruz is a “naturalized” U.S. Citizen.

Senator Ted Cruz has also documented the fact that he was not a “native born citizen” of the United States, but rather a “native born citizen” of Canada on December 22, 1970, who maintained his legal Canadian citizenship until May 14, 2014.

The Harvard opinion letter written by two of Senator Cruz’s Harvard friends, Neal Katyal & Paul Clement, a mere “commentary” on the subject, relies upon the 14th Amendment naturalized citizen at birth concept, despite the fact that Ted Cruz was not “born in or under the jurisdiction of the United States,” was never “naturalized” to the United States, and completely ignoring the fact that Canada prohibited “dual citizenship” in 1970, as well as the fact that “dual citizenship” alone would prevent him from “natural born U.S.” status.

All of this explains why Senator Ted Cruz has no legal U.S. citizenship documentation of any kind. He is not a “natural born” – “native born” or “naturalized” citizen of the United States. Because someone must be one of the three in order to be a legal citizen of the United States, Senator Ted Cruz cannot possibly be a “legal U.S. citizen” of any form.

Only days ago, a 17-year-old first time voter at a New Hampshire town hall meeting for Senator Ted Cruz asked a very reasonable question… “How and why, until recently, were you unaware that you were a Canadian citizen?”

As the young man explained, this is not an eligibility question, but a credibility question… which Senator Cruz refused to answer, preferring instead to regurgitate the talking points carefully crafted by his Harvard friends and eventually, shouting the young man down, after a Cruz fan in the audience shouted “better a Canadian than a Kenyan!” (VIDEO) Meanwhile, a growing number of Constitutional Law Professors agree, “Cruz is NOT eligible.”

Of course, Senator Marco Rubio is also “ineligible,” as a “native born citizen at birth” by virtue of 14th Amendment “anchor baby” policies only.

In the end, the only possible way to consider Senator Ted Cruz eligible for the Oval Office is if every “undocumented resident alien” is eligible for the Oval Office, which I personally believe is the real agenda of both political parties, as they work to meld the USA into the global commune where there is no legal difference between “natural born Americans” and “undocumented aliens.”

The fact that so many Americans do not know or care to know the truth about the Constitutional “natural born Citizen” requirement for the Oval Office, demonstrates just how far down the road of “hope and change” for the destruction of the Constitutional Republic, the enemy within has already achieved.

Soon, “natural born Americans” will be in the American minority… and they will be ruled by foreigners who have no legal U.S. citizenship at all.

  1. The reason why the US Congress hasn’t challenged Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio on their right to run for US President is because they are protecting the fraud and usurper barack hussein obama . The US Congress ignored the US Constitution and the rule of law in 2008 and again in 2012 because of RACE . The leaders of both parties in the US Congress has committed treason in 2008 and again in 2012 by allowing the fraud and usurper barack hussein obama to take the oath of office . As of January of 2009 we are no longer a Constitutional Republic .

  2. OK, so the French Ambassador to the United States and his pregnant wife give birth to a baby in a Washington DC Hospital. Neither of them are Americans but they are on American soil. Is their child an American citizen? Simple Answer, NO.
    When Mr Cruz was born his American Mother had lived in Canada for just 3 years. And according to Canadian Citizenship Eligibility criteria You have to Have lived in Canada as a ‘Permanent Resident’ for at least 4 years out of the 6 years (1,460 days) before you apply and to have actually applied to be a Citizen of Canada. Do you have proof that His mom EVER a Permanent Resident or had applied to be a citizen of Canada?
    I am curious why you never mentioned any of this in your article.

    • According to the way the Democrats (starting with the “1st” Clinton administration) interpret the 14th Amendment that child is an American citizen and eligible for all citizen’s welfare benefits.

  3. So I’m curious, how does a Canadian get elected to the u.s. senate?
    Is there not laws about foreigners in elected office?

    • Based upon Canadian laws as of that time, I’m afraid you will have to post proof that your claim is true. Unless your cousin is running for office, I wouldn’t do that…. but without it, this is just another claim with no supporting evidence. Meanwhile, the laws are clear on the matter.

    • Yeah, he’s right. I had a friend with dual citizenship also. He was probably born in 66 or 67. You might want to check your facts.

    • you might want to actually check your friends facts, Canada sis not allow it, they forced parents of new borns in Canada to choose a single citizenship.

      the only way they could have possibly circumvented this was that the child was NOT born in Canada…. where were the children actually corn in to start with in both these cases?

  4. Since Cruz’s parents chose Canadian citizenship for Ted, and since dual citizenship was NOT accepted in Canada at the time, Ted is not even a US citizen at all, so how can he be eligible to be POTUS?

    Just as importantly, why hasn’t even ONE of the so-called “intelligent lawyers” in congress brought this out? Could it be they are all complicit in Ted’s fraud?

    • More like , every single member of the US Congress are complicit in the fraud and usurper barack hussein obama being in office . If the so called “Intelligent Lawyers” in the US Congress challenged Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio’s right to run for US President they would have to admit barack hussein obama is holding office illegally implicating themselves in the fraud .

  5. I am a ‘natural born’ citizen of the USA, born in Flint, Mich. to two US citizen parents, long before most of the commenters here, apparently. I am also a citizen of Canada, since 1976. When I became a citizen of Canada I was not required nor even asked to renounce my US citizenship. Maybe the judge who took my oath of allegiance forgot about that, or maybe he had advance notice that it didn’t matter. I don’t know.

    For those of you who still have doubts and mistaken notions regarding the ineligibility of Obama, Cruz and Rubio, I recommend you go here:

    https://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com/

    Donofrio was concerned about Obama, of course, and McCain, but everything he documents applies to Cruz and Rubio as well. If you don’t like what he has to say and the voluminous documentation he presents in support, argue with him.

    One final comment. ‘Natural born’ is a description of the circumstances of one’s birth, specifically the citizenship of both parents at the time of birth and the place it occurred. Once born, those specific circumstances of birth are brute facts that do not change. Thus, a ‘natural born’ citizen is such by virtue of natural law, not statute. The status of ‘natural born’ can neither be renounced nor revoked. All other forms of citizenship are established by statute, and can be modified or eliminated by statute.

    Best wishes. Good article.

    • This from the Department of State:

      Birth of U.S. Citizens Abroad

      A child born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth if certain statutory requirements are met. The child’s parents should contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America (CRBA) to document that the child is a U.S. citizen. If the U.S. embassy or consulate determines that the child acquired U.S. citizenship at birth, a consular officer will approve the CRBA application and the Department of State will issue a CRBA, also called a Form FS-240, in the child’s name.

      According to U.S. law, a CRBA is proof of U.S. citizenship and may be used to obtain a U.S. passport and register for school, among other purposes.

      The child’s parents may choose to apply for a U.S. passport for the child at the same time that they apply for a CRBA. Parents may also choose to apply only for a U.S. passport for the child. Like a CRBA, a full validity, unexpired U.S. passport is proof of U.S. citizenship.

      Parents of a child born abroad to a U.S. citizen or citizens should apply for a CRBA and/or a U.S. passport for the child as soon as possible. Failure to promptly document a child who meets the statutory requirements for acquiring U.S. citizenship at birth may cause problems for the parents and the child when attempting to establish the child’s U.S. citizenship and eligibility for the rights and benefits of U.S. citizenship, including entry into the United States. By law, U.S. citizens, including dual nationals, must use a U.S. passport to enter and leave the United States.

      Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA, or Form FS-240)
      If you are a U.S. citizen and have a child overseas, you should report his or her birth as soon as possible so that a Consular Report of Birth Abroad can be issued as an official record of the child’s claim to U.S. citizenship. Report the birth of your child abroad at the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. Check the American Citizens Services portion of the webpage for the nearest Embassy or Consulate in the country where your child was born for further instructions about how to apply for a CRBA. Please note:

      A Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a U.S. citizen is only issued to a child who acquired U.S. citizenship at birth and who is generally under the age of 18 at the time of the application.
      The U.S. embassy or consulate will provide one original copy of an eligible child’s Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a U.S. Citizen.
      A more secure Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a U.S. Citizen was introduced in January 2011. This new CRBA has been updated with a variety of state of the art security features, and is printed centrally in the United States. U.S. embassies and consulates no longer print CRBAs locally, but you still must apply there. The central production was initiated to ensure uniform quality and reduce vulnerability to fraud. The previous version of the CRBA continues to be valid proof of U.S. citizenship.
      You may replace, amend or request multiple copies of a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a U.S. Citizen at any time.
      Persons who acquired U.S. citizenship or U.S. nationality at birth in one of the following current or former territories or outlying possessions of the United States during relevant time periods are not eligible for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a U.S. Citizen because such persons are not considered to have been born abroad. Individuals born in these locations during the relevant times may establish acquisition of U.S. citizenship or non-citizen nationality, based upon the applicable agreement or statute, by producing their birth certificate issued from the local Vital Records Office along with any other evidence required to establish acquisition:
      Puerto Rico
      U.S. Virgin Islands American Samoa
      Guam
      Swains Island
      The Panama Canal Zone before October 1, 1979
      The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands after January 8, 1978 (8PM EST)
      The Philippines before July 4, 1946

  6. “Although Canada restricted dual citizenship between 1947 and 1977, there were some situations where Canadians could nevertheless legally possess another citizenship. For example, migrants becoming Canadian citizens were not asked to formally prove that they had ceased to hold the nationality of their former country. Similarly children born in Canada to non-Canadian parents were not under any obligation to renounce a foreign citizenship they had acquired by descent. Holding a foreign passport did not in itself cause loss of Canadian citizenship.”

    • Regardless, Cruz does not fall under any such exception, to the degree that those exceptions do actually exist. The facts exist…. Ted Cruz is a legally registered citizen of Canada from December 22,1970 until May14, 2014. There are NO U.S. documents of any type confirming the legal U.S. citizenship of Ted Cruz. These facts are consistent with the fact that Canada did not allow anyone born in Canada to hold citizenship in more than one country. As Ted was registered in Canada and not in the USA, this case is indeed closed.

      • It is not at all “closed.” US citizenship law is not defined or governed by Canadian citizenship law. Just because Canadian law prohibits dual citizenship does not mean the same is reciprocated in the US. You can apply this logic to any jurisdiction. If it is illegal to turn right at a red light in your home state does that make you a criminal for turning right at a red light in a state where it is legal? Of course not.

  7. Although I hate Ted Cruz, I have to say that nearly everything in this article is completely bogus. I do still think it is an open question whether he is a “natural born citizen” as contemplated in the Constitution. But there is no question he is a U.S. citizen at birth by virtue of Immigration & Nationality Act Sec. 301(g). Canadian law regarding dual citizenship or anything else has no bearing on U.S. nationality law.

    • I was going to add this too. Canada only had the power take away Canadian citizenship, not US citizenship. I don’t think he’s qualified to be president and I wouldn’t vote for him but I think this article is reaching.

        • “Canadian citizenship is the only citizenship Ted Cruz has ever possessed ” If that is the case then Ted Cruz is not even a LEGAL sitting US Senator . A Canadian Citizen cannot be a US Senator !

    • David, because Ted was “born and registered” subject to the legal jurisdiction of Canada and NOT the USA, everything you posted is “bogus.”

  8. “From January 1, 1947 until February 15, 1977, Canadian law prohibited “dual citizenship.” Foreign parents giving birth to a child in Canada in 1970 were forced to choose between Canadian citizenship only, or citizenship in another country, and to declare that with Canadian officials at the time of birth.” If the United States considers your newborn a citizen under United States law, then telling Canada that you choose Canadian citizenship for your newborn doesn’t alter the fact that the United States automatically conferred U.S. citizenship on him. The United States doesn’t take its marching orders from Canada.

    “a) NATURAL BORN CITIZEN – “As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.” (The Natural Law as understood by the Founders in Article II of the US Constitution” How did you decide that this Vattel person who wrote the document that this links to is the supreme authority on this question? Blackstone already acknowledged other cases of “natural born” citizenship under English law. Vattel was a Swiss person who died in 1767, before anyone had conceived of a “United States of America”.

    “b) NATIVE BORN CITIZEN – All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.” Well, this part of the analysis is wrong. A person naturalized in the United States at the age of 5 or 35 or 75 is not a “native born citizen”.

    ““dual citizens” are prohibited from being “natural born Citizens” as it pertains to Article II requirements for the Oval Office.” Because you say so?

    “As the stated purpose of the Article II “natural born Citizen” requirement for the Oval Office is to prevent anyone with foreign allegiance at birth from ever occupying the Oval Office, and all “dual citizens” at birth are born with “dual national allegiance” at birth.” You keep talking about the “stated purpose” of Article II. ARTICLE II DOES NOT STATE ANY PURPOSES. So stop making stuff up about the “stated purpose” of Article II.

  9. Excellent article and conclusion! The Democrat Controlled Congress tried 8 times before Obama’s election to change this for him! That’s what started me smelling a Conspiracy in our government! Congress Attempts to Change Article II Natural Born Citizen Clause 8 Times Between 2003 and 2008 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIvUmA-l8T0
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zPRYmTSeOpSvXr0rXVun-WIw1OtWxYY9dOstdQmMIqo/edit?pli=1 The court and historical documents on this link make it crystal clear! OBAMA, TED CRUZ AND MARCO RUBIO ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

    • Oh God, a birther. Haven’t you all finally moved on? OBAMA WAS BORN IN HAWAII TO AN AMERICAN MOTHER. Last time I looked, HI is a STATE IN AMERICA. WHT?

      • What prof do you have that the fraud and usurper barack hussein obama was born in Hawaii ? The birth certificate on the White House web site has been proven to be a forgery ! And News Paper clipping from 1961 is not LEGAL prof of birth ! So again what prof do you have that obama was born in Hawaii ? Mommamia , Birther = Constitutionalist ! I believe in the US Constitution and the rule of law, so call me a BIRTHER .

      • ya, obama though claims born in America, though with his foreign father he is not illegible just the same… Cruz cant even boast a US birth.

    • Congress. So nobody in their right mind would vote a member of congress into the Oval Office, except traitors just like themselves.

    • If his mother was a citizen of the USA, couldn’t pass her citizenship down to him? If he isn’t a citizen of the US, what is he doing in the Senate?

    • Yogi….. 1) prove his mother was a legal citizen of the USA in 1970 2) If she was, she could have passed “citizenship” in the USA, a) if Canada did not prohibit, which they did in 1970 and b) if she registered Ted with the USA in 1970, which she did not do.

  10. Where were all of you when Obama was campaigning. LOL Too funny.. or…..Cruz is Hispanic which makes you all racist.

    • Obama was born to an American mother *in the United States* so his case is entirely different, and there is no question whatsoever that when an American mother gives birth to a child in a US state, that child us a US citizen. That’s how I and all the rest of us became US citizens–by being born here. If you have some explanation of how or why his 18-year-old mother would have left Hawaii and traveled to Kenya to give birth, back in 1961, when international travel was much more expensive and difficult than it is now, go right ahead and explain it.

    • LOL – spoken just like a racist! Are you hispanic? LOL. Shame on you and people like you would would support a foreigner and throw our Constitution under the bus to do so.

  11. Notes from Canada:
    1. Mrs Cruz was on a voting list in Canada, which is only possible for a Canadian citizen.
    2. We don’t want him, and are prepared to build a wall to keep him out.
    3. That is all.

    • Well said, Sandy. In his own words, cruz said: “Neither Obama nor I are eligible for the Oval Office” and he has been lying to us ever since. He’s neither a christiain (he’s a dominnionist which is a heresy of christianity), nor a conservative (he has voted for most of obama’s liberal policies and even sponsored one of his own progressive bills – the S.306 – and supports the UN Agenda 21 and is affiliated with the CFR), nor a constitutionalist (self-evident in that he deliberately misstates everything part of it he ever referred to and, in fact, violated it by even seeking the Presidency).

  12. Well hell we should just give the election to Trump. ..my guess is he’s your man. Too bad somebody didn’t put this much time into researching the current scumbag in the Whitehouse. Guaranteed there’s a story there.

    • After discarding the communnists, socialists, globalists, political frauds, the ineligibles, and the members of the RNC/GOP McConnelll establishment machines, Trump IS the last man standing.

    • Cruz was my man until I started researching him. I have been saying for almost a year that he was not legal to run for POTUS so my support moved. I believe in the rule of law and this needs to be set right. I don’t even believe Rubio is eligible “if what I read is true”, at this point I don’t know. According to an article I read, sorry I don’t remember where, it said that his parents did not become citizens until after his birth. If that is the case, he is a citizen, not a natural born citizen. Guess we will see but the whole mess needs to be settled, in my opinion.

    • Todd….. this has nothing to do with Trump. Stop regurgitating Cruz campaign talking points as if you have no mind of your own.

  13. How about this. Any candidate be they republican or democrat or third party who’s eligibility for the office is in question must drop out of the race until such time as they can show without a doubt that they are eligible under all relevant regulations. They will have 4 years to get their ducks in a row, then they can try to run again if all legal concerns have been adequately addressed. Pretty simple really.

  14. please just tell me is he eligible to run for the presidency or not.NO. mumbo jumbo please this is just a yes or no question.

    • He’s ineligible on every point as stated in the constitution, the Federalist papers and in the writings by our Founders. The more important issue at this stage of cruz’s deception is that we should even consider supporting any member of congress to the presidency, especially one with even the question of eligibility surrounding his name. So, yes for most of us who DO research the candidates and have a working knowledge of the original intent of our founding documents, this issues IS SETTLED.

    • The only difference is that cruz is a slickster spewing snake oil rhetoric in his attempt to usurp the office of the president – at all costs and for his own personal gain – and to heck with our American Republic.

      • “Congressmen” is a blanket term for anyone serving in either house of the United States Congress, the Senate, or House of Representatives. Secondly, you do have to be a citizen, of the US to be a Senator, Rubio qualifies, Cruz does not.

      • The U.S Congress consists of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

        Article I of the U.S. Constitution only requires a person to be a ‘(U.S.) Citizen’ for Congressional positions, whereas, Article II of the U.S.Constitution requires a person to be a ‘natural born (U.S.) Citizen’.

      • Richard, you just proved that you have no clue about this matter…. Please research the Founding docs and come back educated. Thanks!

  15. He may be an utterly despicable human being, but he is a natural-born citizen, by virtue of his mother’s citizenship, assuming that he actually did come out of her womb. End of story.

    • But, according to the article, in 1972, when Rafael Edward Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada did NOT allow dual citizenship. His mother and father chose Canadian citizenship for their son. In May of 2014, Since his mother voted in Canada in 1974, she must have also become a Canadian citizen. So Cruz was not a “natural born” or “native born” American. Cruz renounced his Canadian citizenship but did not go through the process of becoming a “naturalized citizen” of the U.S. Therefore, he is not a citizen of either country at this point.

    • LOL – yeah sure, just like obama! Obviously you haven’t researched the candidates or you would have heard cruz say in his own words: “Neither Obama nor I are eligible for the Oval Office” – he knew it then and he knows it now. It’s despicable of him to violate our constitution for his own personal gain.

  16. I love when people try to debate a column they didn’t bother to read first, much less research. 1) In order to be a “dual citizen” at birth, you first have to have the country of birth agreeable to that, and second, you have to notify the other country of your intentions (CRBA form) in order to register with both countries your intent to be a legal citizen of both…. 2) Because Canada did not allow “dual citizenship” in 1970, and Ted was never registered with the USA as a “citizen born abroad” via a CRBA form, Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz was simply “born Canadian.” That is what ALL related laws in BOTH countries and all of Ted’s official citizenship documents confirm beyond any doubt…. unless you are a blind Cruz fan who is not at all impressed by any set of “facts.” – http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resources/tools/cit/overview/hist.asp

    • “dual citizenship” is “naturalized” citizenship. “citizen at birth” it a “naturalization” term found only in US “naturalization” codes.

  17. When Cruz denounced his Canadian Citizenship, and if he is not a citizen in any way of this Nation, then he is a man without a country. All other candidates need to go after him on this and expose him for the fraud he is. The Supreme Court ruled on this many years ago in clarifying what a Natural Born Citizen is and they don’t want to get involved again. Can’t trust them anyway, look how they broke the law themselves in letting Obamacare go through.

    • Not exactly a man without a country…. Cuba will take him, jus sanguinis because they do not recognize expatriation***, (Cuba still holds Rafael Sr to be a Cuban National as well.) .. but then of course, they might not let him go. He needn’t be stateless. He could be such a big fish in that little pond. But what then if they don’t like him and try to send him back? ***according to the US Embassy Cuba

    • This article is full of holes.

      These factors are either not relevant or not applicable:

      ⇒ Article II of the U.S. Constitution
      ⇒ The 14th Amendment.
      ⇒ Founding fathers’ letters.
      ⇒ Canadian law.

      1. Cruz’s mother was born in Delaware.
      His father emigrated from Cuba in 1957.

      2. The U.S. Constitution uses — but does not DEFINE —
      “natural born Citizen”.

      3. The Constitution is silent on dual citizenship.

      4. The 14th Amendment is about and for former slaves.
      No more, no less.

      So, what IS relevant, and binding?
      The Naturalization Act of 1795.

      “And the children of citizens … born … out of the …
      United States [are] … natural born Citizens
      [unless their] … fathers have never been resident
      in the United States …”

      Senator Ted Cruz IS a “U.S. natural born Citizen”.

      Cruz IS eligible for the Presidency.

      • You incorrectly quote from the 1795 Naturalization Act. The Naturalization act of 1790 was repealed in 1795 to remove the phrase “Natural Born Citizen” replacing it with “citizen” on the grounds that the 1790 act was Article 2 Section 1 unconstitutional.

      • Scott, your post is perhaps the most interesting I have ever read…. According to your post, NO citizenship laws in the US Constitution, US Code, US “citizenship” Amendments or Canadian citizenship laws are relevant…. and your proof that Ted is a “natural born Citizen” of the United States is, you have no proof of any form of US Citizenship for Rafael Edward (Ted) Cruz….. which of course, would make every “undocumented” resident alien in the USA today a “natural born Citizen” eligible for the Oval Office, according to you, despite all laws to the contrary. A very interesting view indeed….

  18. I found this posted on a TEA Party facebook page. The Bots are not happy. YOU SAID….”Now, Senator Ted Cruz has repeatedly stated that he has never “naturalized” to the United States, which eliminated the possibility that Ted Cruz is a “naturalized” U.S. Citizen.” We know that this “supposedly” means that he’s reckoning the current statute to say that a “citizen at birth” is “not a citizen by naturalization” and reckoning that to mean that he is natural born, and needs no naturalization. I wonder if he ever read 7 FAM 1130. I wonder if he ever spoke about this to the Consulate. Yes, it does seem that if he never “naturalized”, and now he’s renounced Canadian citizenship, he might just be Cuban…the US Embassy to Cuba seems to think so. If he can’t prove he’s Cuban, maybe he’s stateless. Isn’t this fun? CruzBots cannot grasp all this, they’ve got all that anointing oil on their hands and everything just slips out. BTW JB, your writings were “banned” by Jesse T. Mims who is the iron-fisted Vattel cherry-picker who admins the FB closed page “TED CRUZ IS NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.” He banned me last week for having the nerve to ask him if we are required to cherry-pick from Vattel Chapter 19 as a condition of the privilege of being allowed to stay. So he banned me for that.

    • I know Joyce….. Mr. Mims fashions himself a constitutional authority and the God Father of the “birthers.” Of course, he has NO credentials of any kind, and is just a FB meme. He will not allow any opinion but his own to appear on any page he controls…. In this regard, he is exactly like Cruzbot’s who also do not trust their friends to read and research differing views and draw their own conclusions, preferring instead to totally control the content they are feeding the little birds in their nest.

      • Thanks for your reply. I look forward to upcoming notifications. I enjoy your take on this general topic.
