“...his natural born allegiance was to the sovereign nation of Cuba”

This is just so utterly ridiculous that it must be trolling.

If anyone is trolling here, it must be you given your totally baseless attempt at ridicule. Here is an excerpt of a Cuban Constitution defining a Cuban citizen at birth, i.e. a natural born citizen of Cuba whose parents include at least one Cuban citizen parent. Marco Rubio was born abroad from Cuba with TWO cuban citizen parents. Consequently, Marco Rubio was born owing allegiance to the sovereign nation whose citizenship his parents continued to claim.

Constitution of the Republic of Cuba, 1992

ARTICLE 28. Cuban citizenship is acquired by birth or through naturalization.

ARTICLE 29. Cuban citizens by birth are:

a) those born in national territory, with the exception of the children of foreign persons at the service of their government or international organizations. In the case of the children of temporary foreign residents in the country, the law stipulates the requisites and formalities;

b) those born abroad, one of whose parents at least is Cuban and on an official mission;

c) those born abroad, one of whose parents at least is Cuban, who have complied with the formalities stipulated by law;

d) those born outside national territory, one of whose parents at least is Cuban and who lost their Cuban citizenship provide they apply for said citizenship according to the procedures stated by law;

e) foreigners who, by virtue of their exceptional merits won in the struggles for Cuba’s liberation, were considered Cuban citizens by birth.
