Wrong. Cruz is a statutory U.S. Citizen. He is not a Article 2 Section 1 natural born Citizen eligible for the presidency. He father owed allegiance t a foreign sovereignty.
Representative John Bingham, the father of the 14th Amendment who was well aware of the founders original intent defined a natural born Citizen as this:
Every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen. (Cong. Globe, 39th, 1st Sess., 1291 (1866))
A statutory citizen (bestowed by man’s pen) can never be a “natural born” citizen (bestowed by God/nature).
Just wanted to repeat this for the sake of some here.
If Ted Cruz decides to run for the presidency and he’s the best conservative and strongest candidate running, I’ll be supporting him to the HILT!! FUBO!!
President George Washington and almost half of the Framers of the Constitution say you're wrong.
And James Bayard, backed by Chief Justice John Marshall, Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, Chancellor James Kent, and other leading legal experts of the early United States - says absolutely and categorically that you're wrong.
And of course John Bingham himself NEVER, EVER said that persons born US citizens abroad were ineligible. He NEVER, EVER said it took birth on US soil plus citizen parents to be a natural born citizen. You can only twist his words to what you want them to have meant, when he described "natural born citizens" as "citizens by birth," when he himself stood absolutely silent and without any objection at all in the House chamber while James Falconer Wilson quoted Rawle's quote that absolutely contradicts your birther crap, and when he and our other Congressmen deliberately dropped the wording you think "proves" your point and substituted "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof."
So why don't you take your anti-Ted-Cruz, trolling birther crap some place else?
