The following post is from a regular caller to The Stephanie Miller Show known as Sue in Rockville. She is extremely smart and she’s right on about this, which is why I worry less than most about the Iowa results. – Milt
Ted Cruz is Ineligible to Run for U.S. Presidency
- Raphael & Eleanor Cruz emigrated to Canada sometime in the 1960s and in 1968 Mr. Cruz became a naturalized Canadian Citizen. It appears that Eleanor, by virtue of her marriage, automatically also acquired citizenship one year later. Raphael Eduardo (Ted) Cruz was born December 22, 1970. We have never seen their Marriage License, so I am unsure of their actual date of marriage, as both were in process of getting divorced from other people.
- Until the 1977 changes to Canadian Immigration Law, no dual citizenship was permitted, which means Mrs. Cruz would have had to relinquish her US Citizenship, which means Ted was born to two Canadian parents. If she did not do so, she would have had to file documents that we have yet to see.
- If she wanted to be sure Ted was American she needed to file a Consular Record of Birth Abroad (CRBA). We have never seen such a document. Does it exist?
- Upon their return to the U.S. around 1974-1975, I assume that Eleanor renounced her Canadian citizenship, reclaimed her U.S. citizenship and had Ted naturalized. Again, no documents have ever been released.
