Ted Cruz is not a legal US citizen [View all]

Ted Cruz is not a legal US citizen and he NOT a dual citizen.

To be a dual citizen a person must be active in both countries, like doing business or having an active role in both countries. Ted Cruz does not fit that requirement. I was born in Canada & I'm now a LEGAL citizen of the US. I am NOT eligible to be a dual citizen because I am not in business or playing an active role in both countries. Merely visiting Canada does not qualify me OR Ted Cruz to have dual citizenship. Every media source except The Young Turks are ignorant of the citizenship process.

Ted Cruz's parents FAILED to complete an FS-240 form in Canada to state their son was born to an American mother. Because of this (and subsequent failings described below) Ted Cruz is NOT automatically a US citizen.

Ref: http://travel.state.gov/law/family_issues/birth/birth_593.html

Ted Cruz also FAILED to apply for US citizenship through the naturalization process where one must first apply, get a background check, give an oath rejecting his allegiance to all foreign nations & stating his allegiance to the US and THEN RECEIVING a US Certificate of Citizenship. Ted Cruz does not have a US Certificate of Citizenship or he would have produced it immediately. Therefore, Cruz is not a legal US citizen.

Ted Cruz (and his parents), by NOT fulfilling any of the requirements to be a US citizen is not only NOT a US citizen, but he also is ineligible to even be a US senator and should be forced to resign.

The Constitution, Article 1, Section 3 states anyone who becomes a US senator MUST be a citizen NINE years BEFORE accepting office. Ted Cruz DID NOT fulfill that requirement. That is obvious because Ted Cruz has NO documentation REQUIRED to be a US citizen. Those documents are the FS-240 form that was supposed to be filed out after his birth, a passport that his parents should have applied for when Ted Cruz was a baby or a US Certificate if Citizenship.

In addition to Cruz's non-US citizen status he is also guilty of voting illegally in US elections because he IS NOT a US citizen and because he failed to fulfill any of the US laws to become a US citizen. By voting illegally Ted Cruz subjected himself to US election laws and should be punished for each violation.

I wish the media would exert even a minimum of effort to obtain facts before making false equivalencies by comparing Cruz's situation to Obama's and repeatedly using the term liberal birthers. This is a legal issue but no one in the main stream media is treating this as such.

As an ex-Canadian I was REQUIRED to apply for US citizenship through the naturalization process. Since one of my parents was an American I was entitled to become a US citizen, but there are laws to comply with in order to become a legal citizen. No one born outside the US is automatically a US citizen just because one of their parents is an American. Legal steps must be taken as I've described in this article to become a legal citizen.

My parents did not complete a FS-240 form (as Ted Cruz's parents failed to do) so as an adult I was required to do it myself. I had to apply for citizenship, have background checks performed, take an oath affirming my only allegiance was to the US and then ultimately receiving a CERTIFICATE OF US CITIZENSHIP. I did what US law required. Ted Cruz and his parents, did not.

Because Ted Cruz FAILED to comply with US laws before or after entry into the United States he is therefore NOT a legal US citizen.
