If his mother was a citizen and his father was a citizen, then he is a natural born citizen. We conservatives have played this game with citizenship logic so much that this should be obvious. Instead, we end up with the absurd.
I can’t find his father’s name, but it appears the dad came to the US from Cuba in 1957. Cruz was born in 1970, so that gave the dad 13 years to gain US citizenship. His mother was born an American.
Cruz was born in Alberta Canada, and as far as I can tell, unless his parents renounced their US citizenship while there, then Ted Cruz is a natural born US citizen.
Thank you Chaplain. I was trying to bring a little levity to this inane conversation by saying C-Section babies weren’t “natural born”. You however, have managed to inject a little sober truth to the discussion that probably wont do anything to those who don’t want their closed minds to be confused with facts. I think it is time for the Cadillac Open on TV. Have a good day.
And a natural born Canadian Citizen. And a Natural born Cuban citizen. So if Canada goes to war with the United States, which side does he fight on?
If Cuba decides to draft him, can they make him fight us?
No, this won't cause any problems at all.
