With insults flying between the Republican presidential candidates, CNN Correspondent Sunlen Serfaty previews the GOP debate this weekend. Ted Cruz was not burn in USA.
“Ted Cruz was not born in a U.S. state or territory, so clearly he is not a birthright citizen under the 14th amendment. However, under the McCarran-Walter Act, he was still born a citizen, which makes Ted Cruz a natural born citizen. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services summarizes the laws in effect when Ted Cruz was born:”
A person ‘born a US citizen’ by positive law is not a “natural” born US citizen, but a naturalized US citizen at birth. This is the only kind of US citizenship authorized under the US Const. our government can make. A “natural” citizen is a person who has obtained their citizenship as a natural right, not by positive law. In the case of US citizenship, it requires the transfer of “consent” to support and abide by the US Const. under the cloak of allegiance to the US Const. of both parents to be born a “natural” born US Citizen.
No government can bestow “natural” citizenship on anybody.
As a result, Sen. Cruz was born a natural citizen of Cuba and a “naturalized” US citizen.”
