Sen. Ted Cruz hires lawyers to renounce his Canadian citizenship

Sen. Ted Cruz isn’t leaving any room for doubt. He’s reached out to his lawyers — and met with billionaire businessman Donald Trump — and is taking steps to renounce his citizenship with Canada.

The tea-party favorite said he only discovered he held dual American-Canadian citizenship after the Dallas Morning News reported it a few months ago. But he doesn’t want the issue to become an albatross — as it did for President Obama over his birth certificate when a host of sources, from politicos to Mr. Trump, questioned his true place of birth. So Mr. Cruz is taking a dramatic action.

“I have retained counsel that is preparing the paperwork to renounce the citizenship” with Canada, he said, The Daily Mail reported.

Mr. Cruz said he expects the process will wrap in 2014.

    A: He was BORN in Canada. No amount of legalize can change that fact. Neither parent was a member of the military or diplomatic service so he is not considered a US citizen born abroad. Sorry Ted you can’t change history! Sorry Republicans you need to find another ELIGIBLE candidate.
    Signed: An Independent voter.

    I really hope Ted Cruz is able to assure LEGALLY he is eligible to run for president, as I feel he is what this nation needs to at least start the process of bringing this nation back to what our founding fathers meant our republic to be. Although, I am not getting my hopes up, for I thought Marco Rubio may have been a good candidate until I heard his immigration stance ( he is still better than choices given by the republican party in the last two elections). I am not so naive to think we will ever find the perfect candidate who is 100% conservative, but we can find someone that will stop the current downfall of our nation. We just need to get rid of the republican establishment(Boehner,McConnell,McCain,Snowe,Alexander,Corker, etc…..).
    But if Cruz does qualify, you can expect a firestorm of negative vitriole from mainstream media, democrats, and establishment republicans!

      Pat Riot you are wrong. Since Cruz’ mother is, and was at the time of his birth, a U.S. citizen that automatically makes him a natural born U.S. citizen even though he was born in Canada.

      Educate yourself before spouting off.
