AN AUGMENTATION OF ARTICLE II, SECTION 1, CLAUSE 5?
August 11, 2013
The following letter was posted on Sen. Ted Cruz’s Facebook page today:
The Naturalization Act of 1795 revised the Naturalization Act of 1790 by repealing the “natural born Citizen” status from children born outside the United States to U.S. citizen parents (plural) to only “citizen” status. Mr. Cruz, you can run for any Office Constitutionally EXCEPT for the U.S. Presidency. As you can clearly read here:
United States Congress 1790 Naturalization Act in part with the “natural born Citizen” wording:
“And the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens: Provided, that the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States: Provided also, that no person heretofore proscribed by any States, shall be admitted a citizen as aforesaid, except by an Act of the Legislature of the State in which such person was proscribed.”
United States Congress 1795 Naturalization Act with the “natural born Citizen” wording removed and replaced with only “citizen.”
SEC. 3 in part: ” and the children of citizens of the United States, born out of the limits and jurisdiction of the United States, shall be considered as citizens of the United States: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons, whose fathers have never been resident of the United States: Provided also, That no person heretofore proscribed by any state, or who has been legally convicted of having joined the army of Great Britain during the late war, shall be admitted a citizen as foresaid, without the consent of the legislature of the state, in which such person was proscribed.”
Perversely in 2008 the DNC as well as the RNC ran ineligible Presidential candidates. Do you really want to be part of this deceit, Mr. Cruz?
Weakness in the Constitution will cripple the People.
