Think you are incorrect that Cruz can’t run for Prez. This is copy of a post from AuH20Republican on July 31st:
“For the record, Ted Cruz was born in Canada while his parents were working for the oil industry there, but was a U.S. citizen at birth under federal law. Im not sure if his father was already a U.S. citizen at such time, but even if he wasnt, Teds mother was a U.S. citizen who had resided in the U.S. for more than 10 years, at least 5 of which were after having turned 14, so Ted met the legal criteria to be a U.S. citizen at birth. The prevailing interpretation of constitutional scholars for a couple of centuries now is that a person who is a U.S. citizen at birth under U.S. law is, ipso facto, a natural-born citizen of the United States.”
AuH20R is very, very wrong in his constitutional interpretation.
There’s never been a president born outside the United States. Natural born has meant just that - born inside the United states.
Sorry, Cruz doesn’t qualify. He’ll make a fine senator, but we have better candidates who were born in America.
