His mother is a citizen.
That's how it works.
Natural Born citizen: Born with full and complete allegiance to the U.S.
BOTH PARENTS U.S. citizens at birth
Native Born citizen: Born with partial allegiance to the U.S.
Born to one parent who was a U.S. citizen at birth
The problem obama, a native(?) born citizen was allowed to bypass Article 2 of the Constitution, is Cruz allowed too also?
That is how it has always worked. Same for the dictator, same for McLame. I have friends from the military who were born in France and the other in Belgium. Both sets of parents were citizens, on foreign soil by way of military orders. It really makes no difference. If you mother goes into labor while visiting in a foreign country it does not automatically make you foreign born. Foreign born has always meant not born in this country and not born to citizen parents. That is why the use of the 14th amendment to validate anchor babies is unconstitutional.
So our Founders would have welcomed with open arms the son of the King of England as President as long as the mother was a U.S. citizen?
What value is there in having one citizen parent rather than none? What would be the point?
If the reason for the NBC requirement is to eliminate a chief cause of questionable loyalty, how is that accomplished if one parent is a citizen of a foreign country?
Not according to Minor v. Happersett...
Cruz is eligible because Obama was elected. Argument ends there. If I refute the fact that Obama was not elected then I can refute Cruz is ineligible. I can’t refute that Obama was elected.
The electorate has lowerd the Constitutional bar. Simple.
“Cruz is eligible to be President because he is a natural born citizen of the United States.
His mother is a citizen.
That’s how it works.”
You’re correct on the result, but it’s a little more nuanced than that.
Cruz is a natural-born citizen because, pursuant to federal law at the time of his birth, Cruz is a U.S. citizen at birth. When Cruz was born, same as when Obama was born, a child born outside of the U.S. with one U.S. citizen parent and one non-citizen parent would be a U.S. citizen at birth if his U.S. citizen parent had resided in the U.S. for at least 10 years of his or her life, with at least 5 of those years coming after the age of 14. Cruz’s mother easily met such requirement, so Cruz, despite having been born in Canada, was a U.S. citizen at birth and thus a natural-born citizen.
The reason why it was so important for Obama to maintain that he had been born in Hawaii was because, had Obama been born in Kenya (as Obama seemed to have claimed earlier, and as his step-grandmother had indicated in an interview), he would *not* have been a U.S. citizen at birth, since his sole U.S. citizen parent had not resided in the U.S. for at least 5 years after turning 14 (something that would be incontrovertible, since his mother had not yet turned 19 when Obama was born, so she couldn’t have resided anywhere for 5 years after turning 14). Only by having been born in the U.S. (or by having a U.S. citizen for a father) could Obama be a U.S. citizen at birth and thus a natural-born citizen.
So Cruz is a natural-born citizen, even if Democrat claim that he was born in the Moon.
That’s it dead on.
His mother is a citizen of the United States.
Where in the law is that stated?
