Senator Rand Paul: It Is Up To Supreme Court If
'Natural-Born Canadian' Ted Cruz Can Be President
Senator Rand Paul told Fox News that it's up to the Supreme Court of the United States to decide if natural-born Canadian Ted Cruz can be president of the United States.
Paul questioned how a natural-born Canadian citizen can be an American natural born Citizen.

Sen. Ted Cruz's citizenship status could end up before the Supreme Court, Sen. Rand Paul said Monday, because it's still undecided if he qualifies as a "natural-born" American.
The Kentucky Republican hit his colleague and fellow presidential candidate on Fox News on Monday for being born in Canada and perhaps not fitting the constitutional requirement that a President be a natural-born citizen.
"Cruz is a natural-born Canadian," Paul said. "He was naturally born there. The question is, can you be natural-born Canadian and natural-born American at the same time? Maybe, but I think the courts will have to decide it, because it's never really been decided." [...] CNN.
