Ted Cruz: “This is My Country”


by Sharon Rondeau

Sen. Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in December 1970 and was granted Canadian citizenship at birth. Thus far, Cruz has not released any documentation showing that he holds U.S. citizenship, although the Canadian government asks whether one renouncing that citizenship possesses citizenship from another country.
(Feb. 27 , 2016) — While campaigning in Georgia on Saturday in the runup to the “Super Tuesday” primaries, presidential candidate Ted Cruz exclaimed to his audience, “This is my country, da** it!   Stand up and fight for it together.”
But is the U.S. Cruz’s “country?”
Born in Canada to a U.S.-citizen mother and Cuban-citizen father who became a Canadian in 1973, Cruz immigrated to the U.S. at age four with his parents.  It is unknown whether or not Cruz wasregistered as a U.S. citizen at birth or at a later date, and he has refused to release any documentation on himself other than his birth certificate to The Dallas Morning News in August 2013.
While Cruz and fellow candidate Marco Rubio take turns attacking Republican frontrunner Donald Trump over the non-release of his tax returns and his business dealings, Rubio and Cruz are questionably qualified for the office they seek as “natural born Citizens” as required by Article II of the U.S. Constitution.
report from political strategist and author Roger Stone on Friday said that Rubio and Cruz have attempted to make deals with each other and with Trump, respectively which would affect the outcome of the presidential primary season.
Rubio was born in the U.S. to parents who had not yet naturalized as U.S. citizens.
Over the last ten months, The Post & Email has unsuccessfully sought government documentation indicating Cruz’s citizenship status.  The U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and U.S. State Department have all declined to release any documents they might have out of “privacy” concerns.
