CANADIAN-BORN U.S. SENATOR CLAIMS U.S. CITIZENSHIP FROM BIRTH ABSENT DOCUMENTATION
by Sharon Rondeau
(Mar. 4, 2016) — The following letter was sent by certified mail to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who has endorsed and campaigned for Sen. Ted Cruz.
Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to a U.S.-citizen mother and Cuban father who became a Canadian citizen, then a U.S. citizen in 2005. On August 18, 2013, The Dallas Morning News reported that Cruz was born a dual citizen of Canada and the U.S. but did not show proof.
Cruz claims that he was born a U.S. citizen but has shown no supporting documentation. He asserts “natural born Citizenship,” required for the presidency by Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution, through his U.S.-citizen mother, who does not appear in public and has provided no media interviews.
The candidate and his father, Rafael Bienvenido Cruz, cite the 1790 Naturalization Act as justification for his eligibility without stating that the Act was repealed and replaced in 1795.
All acts of Congress were written after the ratification of the Constitution in 1789.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who himself sought the 2016 presidential nomination but withdrew several months ago, has also endorsed Cruz.
Unlike with Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, the mainstream media has offered some discussion as to whether or not Cruz is eligible for the presidency but has not presented the historical background as to the inclusion of the “natural born Citizen” clause by the Framers.
