WASHINGTON Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born.
Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say.
That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag pull out his Calgary, Alberta, birth certificate and obtain a passport.

You mean he didn’t have to send lawyers to Canada to retrieve it? He actually has a copy of his own birth certificate?
That is exactly what I was thinking. :) I will laugh when we find out he did so many years ago.
Obama, on the other had got free stuff for claiming citizenry from another country. THAT is the issue.
I think Obama denounced his American citizenship somewhere. I think THAT is what the cover up is about.
‘What Difference Does It Make?’
Title 8 section 1401 subsection G is commonly referred to as The Immigration and Nationality Act. Ted Cruz would have to be an immigrant to the U.S. before title could apply to him. Congress does not have Constitutional authority to pass immigration and nationality legislation that applies to citizens at birth.
Congress has a Constitutional mandate to legislate rules and regulations with respect to aliens and immigrants who wish to become U.S. citizens. Consequently, Cruz had to be an immigrant before Title 8 could be applied to him.
Isnt that grand? No hiding. No cloak.
We need to scan Cruz’s birth certificate and see if it has layers and halos in it like Obbama’s that he released on April 27, 2011.
For some reason, I’m laughing my self silly over this. Why did Ted choose to release his birth certificate at this particular time? Sounds like a game of chicken with the Won to me. Maybe he is trying to goad zero into coming clean - what’s next? I fully expect Ted to release his college transcripts too.
Sorry, this just tickles me.
Baloney! The people dangerous to this country are those now in control. You seem to have a warped sense of what’s good or bad for this country.
Once more, the meaning of "natural born citizen" was determined in 1787 not whenever title 8 was written. Title 8 has no impact on what the CONSTITUTION means.
You can't change the meaning of words AFTER THE FACT.
If Ted Cruz wouldn't be a "natural born citizen" in 1787, then he isn't one today.
And it could be why McCain was 'chosen' despite his fall in the polls/no money; and then a sudden rise/money flowed in from where?
Yes, same thing..........American mother, non American citizen father. Sen. Cruz is not eligible to be president.....JUST LIKE OBOOHOO!!!
And in accordance with the Constitution, the very first Congress pass the very first rules of naturalization in the naturalization act of 1790 which state that a natural born citizen is a citizen of US Parents regardless of where the child was born. This was later clarified (by Congress) to require only one US citizen parent who has lived in the US for the required number of years.
The Constitution specifically grants in Article 1 section 8 the power to Congress to make the rules of naturalization. That includes who requires naturalization and who does not.
Now I have quoted and cited specific constitutional authority, acts passed by our founding fathers and the law of the land. I can further site SCOTUS rulings and other legal precedent. What do you have to offer, other than merely your opinion?
Mr Cruz does NOT need to immigrate for the law to apply to him. Please read the whole of section 1401 and in specific subsection A which states that any person born on US soil is automatically a US citizen at birth. Theses are part of the rules of naturalization specifically as an enumerated power delegated to Congress in Article 1 section 8 of the US Constitution.
Anyone who claims that Mr Cruz is a natural born citizen has read the Constitution (Article 1 section 8), the first acts of congress (Naturalization Act of 1790) and Title 8 section 1401 in it’s entirety. You know, law of the land stuff.
Now your turn to cite the constitution, laws of this land or even court rulings to support your position.
“And in accordance with the Constitution, the very first Congress pass the very first rules of naturalization in the naturalization act of 1790 which state that a natural born citizen is a citizen of US Parents regardless of where the child was born”
And it was repealed 5 years later making your argument ‘Null & Void’.
8 U.S.C. § 1401 : US Code - Section 1401:
Nationals and citizens of United States at birth
(g) a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years: Provided, That any periods of honorable service in the Armed Forces of the United States, or periods of employment with the United States Government or with an international organization as that term is defined in section 288 of title 22 by such citizen parent, or any periods during which such citizen parent is physically present abroad as the dependent unmarried son or daughter and a member of the household of a person
(A) honorably serving with the Armed Forces of the United States, or
(B) employed by the United States Government or an international organization as defined in section 288 of title 22, may be included in order to satisfy the physical-presence requirement of this paragraph. This proviso shall be applicable to persons born on or after December 24, 1952, to the same extent as if it had become effective in its present form on that date;
Just wanted to repeat this for the sake of some here.
Even if he did renounce whatever foreign citizenship he has, he still wouldn't be a NBC.
“On that same day, Senator Claire McCASKILL, a Missouri democrat introduced a bill titled Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act. Oddly, the bill was co-sponsored by both Senators Barack Hussein OBAMA II and Hillary Rodham CLINTON, both who were running against McCAIN at the time the bill was introduced. Despite the specificity of its title, the bill (SB 2678) was an attempt to change the legal definition of a natural born citizen as referenced by Article II, Section I, clause V of the U.S. Constitution, a move that by default, would arguably and preemptively take away any constitutional challenges against the eligibility of Barack Hussein OBAMA II.
Although the bill failed to progress in the Senate, the same lawmakers introduced a non-binding resolution (Senate Resolution 511) on 10 April 2008 to again ostensibly recognize McCAIN as a natural born citizen, the resolution contained broad language that could be applied to OBAMA.”
