Cruz Panic: ‘I should be only an American,’ will renounce Canadian citizenship

from Dallas News:

Sen. Ted Cruz acknowledged late Monday that he probably has been a lifelong Canadian and vowed to renounce that citizenship now that he realizes he’s had it.

“The Dallas Morning News says that I may technically have dual citizenship,” Cruz, a freshman Republican from Texas, said in a statement. “Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator, I believe I should be only an American.”

The News reported Monday that the circumstances of Cruz’s birth — in Canada but to an American mother — made him a dual citizen of the U.S. and Canada. That apparently came as startling news to the 42-year-old senator, who has been touring Iowa and other early-voting states in preparation for a White House bid.

The story went viral online, fueling a simmering debate about Cruz’s eligibility to run for U.S. president and complicating his political calculus.

Canada’s citizenship laws are similar to those of the U.S. Both provide for birthright citizenship, meaning that someone born on the country’s soil is automatically a citizen. Both also allow citizenship for children of its citizens, even if they are born outside the country.

Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, on Dec. 22, 1970. His mother is a lifelong U.S. citizen. His father, born in Cuba, remained a Cuban citizen until he was naturalized as an American in 2005. When Cruz was born, his parents were living in Canada, where they had opened a seismic-data business in the oil patch. Cruz lived in Canada until he was 4, and spent the rest of his childhood in Texas.

He released his birth certificate to The News in response to inquiries last week.

    That is actually an honorable thing to do (if you are in politics, military, judiciary, etc. renounce your other citizenships.)

    Too bad we cannot get all the Jewish gov’t people to renounce their “Right of Return” to Israhell, and to renounce their Israeli citizenship.

    Since we cannot cancel the “Jewish right of return” of all our Jewish gov’t people, then the NEXT best thing is to BAR them from every government jobs because they may have divided loyalties.

    I think it’s a good idea for NORMAL Americans to have a 2nd citizenship to escape to, just as long as you’re NOT a gov’t, military or judicial person.

    Too bad those “World Citizenship” passports are not considered legal, after all, we do all live on the same planet. And if CORPORATIONS can be a “person” and they are allowed to be in every country on the planet, then WE the real LIVING people should have MORE rights than any corporate entity.

    We need to charge Monsanto-person, with crimes, and throw him in prison and confiscate all his properties, property rights, patents, etc.

    There is a long list of corporate criminals who need to go to jail. The nutjob-nuclear industry is another one, Big pharma, military suppliers, oil companies, finance, etc.

    So first Cruz didn’t know that he needed to be up front with his “loan” from Goldman Sachs that put him in office, now he didn’t realize that he has been a Canadian citizen all this time.
    Dude hasn’t got a clue as to what is going on in his own life, yet we are supposed to think he’s Presidential material? (Well, at least that’s what his Jewish masters tell him).

    There should be no debate about this. If Ted Cruz is such a defender of the Constitution then why doesn’t he honor what is says? If you’re not born in this country, you CANNOT run for President, period. Either Ted stands by this document or he only stands by it if it suits his personal situation/agenda.

    It’s either one or the other Ted, and no in betweens!

    “Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator, I believe I should be only an American.”

    HaHaHa! Speaking just like an attorney! I laughed so hard, I nearly fell off my chair.
