I am not denying what you are saying. I am saying is that they have a certificate of u.s. citizenship. Ask to take a look at that and read it. Also in a previous link I have put forth the U.S. policy on dual citizenship.
That comes as a surprise to me. My infant grandson has dual nationality with Great Britain and has no competency to renounce anything. I'll check with his mother, but I would be very surprised to find that he lacks a social security number since he has a U.S. passport.
“Your grandson will need a U.S. certificate of citzenship in order to obtain a SS#.”
He has an American Passport that certifies him as an American citizen. When he comes to this country, he gets in the American immigration/customs line.
I’m sure Cruz has an SS number and he is a dual citizen by his own admission and supplying his birth certificate.
It does not disqualify him for president. He is a natural born citizen, nothing in the constitution forbids being born in another country. He was an American citizen at birth, therefore a natural born citizen, which is what the term means: A person born into citizenship, which Cruz was.
He probably has a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a U.S. Citizen (CRBA, or Form FS-240)
My parents did not apply for U.S. citizenship for me until we moved to Boston, two years after my birth. But your grandson has to have the CRB or FS-240.
He most likely has a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a U.S. Citizen (CRBA, or Form FS-240)
You are probably correct as I do know that she reported the birth and took steps to preserve his U.S. citizenship.
But as I pointed out, there was no expectation that I am aware of that he give up his British citizenship. He has dual citizenship.
His mother was upset with me when I pointed out the downside, as I see it, that he can never be President of the U.S. She disagrees and sees no problem with Barack being POTUS. Some people just seem ignorant of what our Founders feared; a President with divided loyalties.
These same people think it ridiculous to consider the Second Amendment as an antidote to government tyranny. They completely miss the point of the Battles of Lexington and Concord.
I always was told that I was inelligible to P.O.T.U.S. because of my birth in Canada. Technically I have dual citizenship although the U.S. does not actively recognize it.
