      • doesn't matter that you understand or not. It's just the law. It's the same for govs.. Arnold was gov of Ca, but being born in Austria means he could never run for president...... It will be funny for ted to stand up and renounce being a Canadian citizen, not that he would have any friends up their anyway. maybe he should renounce being a "socialist' or a "communist" or a "Cuban" while is at it, just in case , you never know what the loony teabublicans are going to go bananas over.

    • Sen. Ted Cruz's birth certificate shows he was born in Canada in 1970. It was released exclusively to The Dallas Morning News.

      WASHINGTON — Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born.

      Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say.

      That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy — the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag — pull out his Calgary, Alberta, birth certificate and obtain a passport.

      “He’s a Canadian,” said Toronto lawyer Stephen Green, past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section.
