Texas Sen. Ted Cruz releases birth certificate
Question of the Day
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz released his birth certificate to the Dallas Morning News on Sunday, revealing his dual citizenship in Canada and the United States that could possibly pose a problem down the line.
So unless he renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries.
“He’s a Canadian,” said Toronto lawyer Stephen Green, past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section.
The U.S. Constitution allows only a “natural born” citizen to serve as president, and to most legal scholars, that includes an American born overseas to an American parent, the Morning News said.
Mr. Cruz, a Harvard-trained lawyer, argued last week that being an American by birth makes him eligible.
