Is Ted Cruz an “natural born citizen”?

Ted Cruz Birth CertificateTed Cruz was born on December 22, 1970 in Alberta Canada.

His father Rafael Bienvenido Cruz born March 22, 1939 in Matanzas, Cuba. Became a naturalized U.S. Citizen in 2005.

His mother Eleanor Darragh, born on Nov. 23, 1934 in Delaware making her a U.S. Citizen.

Because Ted Cruz had a U.S. Citizen mother he automatically becomes a U.S. Citizen by virtue of the 1952 Immigration and Naturalization Act.

The 1952 Immigration and Naturalization Act allows a child born out of the United States to a U.S. citizen mother and non-U.S. citizen father to be a “citizen” of the United States at birth.

The 1952 Immigration and Naturalization Act DOES NOT ALLOW that this “citizen” is also a “natural born citizen”.

What defines a “natural born citizen”?

John Armor Bingham House on March 9, 1866:”[4] [5] [6]

“[I] find no fault with the introductory clause [S 61 Bill], which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that every human being born within the JURISDICTION of the United States of PARENTS not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”…”

Ted Cruz IS NOT an Article II “natural born citizen” he fails the requirement on 2 counts.
1. He was not born in the United States or under the Jurisdiction of the United States.
2. He only has one citizen parent at the time of his birth.

Ted Cruz wants us to believe that under that naturalization Act he is an Article II “natural born citizen” and that such a proposition has been settled law since the framing of the Constitution.

Ted CruzClearly Ted Cruz is wrong.

What does this say about the honesty of Ted Cruz or lack of?
Cruz is a Constitutional expert.
He claims he defends the Constitution.

Ted Cruz clearly understands HE IS NOT A “natural born citizen” but wants the public who is confused over this issue to believe him.

He openly states he will not take Donald Trumps advice about getting this monumental problem solved?

It is starting to appear that Ted Cruz is not as honest as he claims and not as wise or smart as he claims either.

Perhaps Ted Cruz realizes if he does address this legally HE WILL LOSE!

The Cruz crowd calls everyone who challenges the Cruz eligibility “low information voters.
In truth they are the “low information” voters. They do not care how many FACTS are tossed their way. It does not matter they keep up the argument for THEIR GUY. Here is one such supporter example. They are all about the same.

Every American voter should educate himself on this matter if they were not taught it in school.
For those who choose “willful ignorance” THEY ARE part of the problem causing the destruction of the United States Constitution.

  • I wish I had met you a few years back, when I was doing my own research on the NBC issue. We are very simpatico in our “Clinical Thinking.” 😉

    I have been railing against Cruz not being a NBC, and just referenced several articles of yours here in a post on my own blog at:

    It would please me if you were to join in the discussions there. :) ◄Dave►

  • Hi Dave,

    Thanks for your visit and comment. I understand your wish for help 😉

    Said it many times as I was slogging through the congressional drone of what those who formed our nation had to say and why.

    Lucky for me I had a tiny advantage of being old enough to have been educated when they actually taught this stuff.

    In fact we had to pass a test on the Constitution that actually covered Article II Section I of the Constitution.

    So I was familiar with the law just did not know where to find it enough to prove my point.

    Voila this website is the result of that spark that started with the rise of Barack Obama.

    So in my mind I can CREDIT Barack Obama with ONE ACCOMPLISHMENT in his Presidency.

    He lit the fuse that sparked THIS one voice being heard. 😉

  • Exactly, CT. That is precisely how I got tangled up in the NBC issue. To explain, here is part of a letter I wrote to Bernie Goldberg, back in 2011:

    You see, the eligibility issue has never represented a conspiracy to me. I have been irrepressibly fascinated by the subject since the moment I first heard that Obama’s father was a British subject, visiting America on a student visa. It happens that my younger sister is not a NBC, because she was born in a civilian hospital in Munich, Germany, while my father was stationed there during the occupation after WWII (1947).

    Some 55 years ago, it was not thought necessary to have a Law degree and a library full of ‘case law’ books to be able to ‘interpret’ our Constitution. Written in rather plain English, it was generally thought at the time to mean exactly what it said; so, with a little help from a dictionary for the occasional archaic word, it was assumed to be easily taught (line by line as I recall) to any average junior high student. Thus, I can still remember clearly the day when my teacher revealed the startling detail that my sister and I had different classes of citizenship.

    He specifically taught us that to be a NBC required BOTH one’s parents to have been American citizens, AND one’s birth must have taken place on sovereign American territory. Interestingly, I recall him explaining how an American embassy was considered our sovereign territory too. I even remember discussing my surprise at this information with my parents that night. They allowed as how it was unlikely that my sister would ever want to be President, and in every other respect her citizenship was the equal of mine. Thus, if I were to have forgotten every other detail of our Constitution, the proper definition of NBC would still be indelibly etched in my mind.

    From day one, when Larry Johnson (whom I had liked and respected from his past frequent appearances on Fox News) was leading Hillary’s PUMA opposition researchers in unraveling Obama’s phony nativity narrative, and started the NBC controversy; I have been ranting and blogging that, while what they were uncovering was stunning, it was irrelevant. It mattered not a whit where he was born, or that he lost his American citizenship upon becoming an Indonesian citizen as a child. By definition alone, he was not a NBC, because he was born a British subject. Period. Full stop. Fini.

    I haven’t been able to let go of it ever since. Of course with Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Bobby Jindal all three running for POTUS, it has kept me exercised about it. 😉 ◄Dave►
