Canadian-Born Cruz Is At
The Least A Naturalized Citizen
Thinkwell: The Supreme Court has already ruled on a case exactly like Ted Cruz (foreign born, alien father, expat mother) in Rogers v. Bellei (1971, the year after Cruz was born) in which they found:
"Every person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof becomes at once a citizen of the United States, and needs no naturalization. A person born out of the jurisdiction of the United States can only become a citizen by being naturalized, either by treaty, as in the case of the annexation of foreign territory; or by authority of Congress, exercised either by declaring certain classes of persons to be citizens, as in the enactments conferring citizenship upon foreign-born children of citizens," (emphasis mine).
To mix metaphors, game, set and match. Cruz is ineligible toast. The SCOTUS has already ruled that he is naturalized.
