Does Texas’s Governor Know if Ted Cruz is a U.S. Citizen?

CANADIAN-BORN U.S. SENATOR CLAIMS U.S. CITIZENSHIP FROM BIRTH ABSENT DOCUMENTATION

by Sharon Rondeau

Current Texas Gov. Greg Abbott served as Attorney General and appointed Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz as his Solicitor General in 2003. Cruz’s application forms for the position did not ask whether or not he is a U.S. citizen, nor has any documentation indicating same been released.

(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Bienvenido Cruz, cite the 1790 Naturalization Act as justification for his eligibility without stating that the Act was repealed and replaced in 1795.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.

    Hi Sharon
    From the time the candidates started running I questioned the eligibility of Cruz and Rubio. I did the same when Obama ran. I still can’t believe those elections – Corupt Government! I did my own research and have come to the same conclusions as you did. We need to get some sort of chain mail going to all Americans. I am contacting Sheriff Joe to see what he can do. He did a good job with Obama’s info not be right!
    We the People can’t allow the Establishment get away with putting someone in the White House that is not a Citizen. Look at what the last 8 years has done to this country. And we definitly need to STOP HILLARY, hopefully the FBI will be charging her.

    I dont see what the Problem Is ..Obama wasnt born a Citizen and Never Had To Produce Any Proof any one that Has Enough Money No Matter Where they Come From Can Be President of This Once Very Proud Once Great Country .. Everything In The Once Great Proud Country Has Gone To The Greedy Money Hungry Politicians and It All Rools Down Hill ..Blame ..Doesnt Matter Anymore It Is What It Is ..For the ones That Helped Make This Once Proud Great Country I Just Hope You Have Explained To Your Children Why You Did What You Did And That They To Should Be Proud ..Crooks, Thieves, Liars dont Fall From The Tree ..Nuff Said ..Locked and Loaded

    Sharon and All Here,

    Was on a blog a few weeks ago, and one of those commenting came up with a wild theory, but it makes sense…

    …That his parents never filed a CRBA, and that he became “legalized” in USA under 1986 Reagan Amnesty.

    Why I am not discounting this totally – the Cruz story goes (and I believe he has stated it himself) that Cruz got his US passport while in high school in order to go on a high school trip to England. Cruz born in 1970. Forward to 1986, and that puts Cruz at age 16.

    This is just too coincidental and may be worth looking in to.

    I have gone so far on the Cruz issue as to look into the Senate Oath. This really bothers me:

    “…that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion;”

    I am still trying to parse in my own head what Purpose of Evasion means here.

    I do believe the citizens of Texas have been defrauded.

    Please follow through with this. We can not have a foreigner sitting in the White House.

    Carol – I agree!

    Are you in Texas? I am and am hopping mad at the very thought of a Canadian defrauding my vote – or any ineligible, for that matter.

    But the question then needs to be asked: Are senatorial candidates vetted and, if so, by whom?

    It looks like the Republican National Committee is responsible for betting presidential candidates.
    Has anyone ever filed against the political parties for failure to vet the candidates? How would we know what information in the form of birth certificates, etc. would have been provided? What would be the process of the RNC to obtain this information from candidates? Who makes the decision that eligibility has been verified?

    Sharon, check into the fact that Canada DID NOT PERMIT dual citizenship until 7 years AFTER Cruz was born, when he was already back in Texas.

    He was birthright Canadian when born, single citizenship, not dual.

    In 2013 when he gave it up, the mere fact that Canada allowed that is proof that it existed in order to give it up.

    It looks as if at that time, he applied for naturalization in the US. There is no proof that he was ever a US citizen at all. No CRBA, no US passport, nothing.

    He needs to have been a citizen for 9 yrs BEFORE becoming senator!!!
    Not DURING!

    I think he never had even regular citizenship, let alone “natural born” status!

    What makes me think he applied for naturalization when he asked to give up his Canadian citizenship: He hired a “team” of lawyers to handle a rather simple form and case. It took much longer than normal to process in Canada. BECAUSE Canada requires proof of citizenship in another country or that you are in the process before they will allow rescission. There was no US citizenship, thus no proof. So he had to start the process to show the proof of application. Who knows how far along his US naturalization is by now, if he really has yet been sworn in as a US citizen.

    This is the biggest scandal of the century. That we have a sitting senator that is not a US citizen, a foreigner.

    All his delegates should be cancelled forthwith. All votes for him denied. He should be removed from the senate even if his naturalization has been expedited and he’s been sworn in as a citizen. Ethics violation of the most grievous sort.

    Texas is the ideal place to pursue this since he has been misrepresenting Texas all this time, committing fraud upon all the citizens of Texas.

    Dear Sharon,

    Is Ted Cruz a Natural Born Canadian under the Citizenship Act of 1947?

    When did Ted’s father come to Canada and when did he apply for citizenship?

    Did Ted’s father ever vote in any Canadian election?

    thank you

    Sharon –
    I’m beginning to think you are the only Patriot-in-print in the whole damn country, and I’ve been a subscriber (and loyal follower) for many years. I have an idea what you’ve been subjected to, and I’m pleased as can be you’re still at bringing out the truth.
    – Tim

    Thanks Sharon, I’m so glad you are on our side (the right/truthful)
    side. I too will send a letter, and I am asking others to write the
    governor of this matter. Every letter matters, for everyone who
    writes a letter or make a phone call or makes a visit to their
    Reps., they know it represents “X” number of other citizens.

    Let your voice be heard. Roar like a Lion…
