Has Ted Cruz ever said he wanted to run for President? Why is this an issue?
For Everyone’s Information:
Birth Abroad to One Citizen and One Alien Parent in Wedlock
A child born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent acquires U.S. citizenship at birth under Section 301(g) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act provided the U.S. citizen parent was physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for the time period required by the law applicable at the time of the child’s birth. (For birth on or after November 14, 1986, a period of five years physical presence, two after the age of fourteen, is required. For birth between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, a period of ten years, five after the age of fourteen, is required for physical presence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child.) The U.S. citizen parent must be genetically related to the child to transmit U.S. citizenship.
Cruz is articulate, clear-thinking and courageous. He is among the best of the best in the GOP, and everyone knows it. Hence, the discussion. But I wouldn’t care if he was a guy dangling off a bar stool. His birth to an American makes him eligible for POTUS. Some folks here would rather stand by a fine point which is not rational in Cruz’ case, IMO, and very much in dispute, and ultimately allow socialism to triumph, and freedom to perish. Bob
