Were Cruz’s parents,either one, in a foreign country fighting or even representing for the USA? I will be waiting for you to find the words of Vattel that supersede the actual quote I cited. I believe the Constitution was a very good resoned and constructed document for times then and now.

I brought it up in regard to McCain. McCain would be a “native or indigenous” citizen according to Vattel 217. The “actual quote” you cited is a mistranslation of 212. And 217 provides an exception to the definition of “natives or indigenous” provided in 212. Was Vattel speaking of natural-born subjects as well as citizens? Nothing in the French translates to either “born” or “citizen”.

Yes the Constitution was extremely well reasoned, and only those who were citizens at the time of the adoption and natural born citizens were qualified for the Presidency. This leaves out the only other type of citizen the Constitution provides for, those being naturalized citizens.

Do you contend that Senator Cruz is a naturalized citizen? What type of citizen do you suppose Senator Cruz is? Based upon what law?
