It’s official: Sen. Ted Cruz is no longer Canadian.
After some allegations were raised that the Texas Republican may not have been a true red-white-and-blue American, Mr. Cruz released his birth certificate to the Dallas Morning News last August. However, his attempt at transparency backfired when the news organization pointed out that he was born in Calgary, Alberta, to an American woman — a fact that likely made him a dual citizen.
Mr. Cruz was quick to say that he would renounce his Canadian citizenship.
“Now the Dallas Morning News says that I may technically have dual citizenship,” Mr. Cruz said in a statement in August 2013. “Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator; I believe I should be only an American.”
The senator wasn’t bluffing — the Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday that Mr. Cruz was officially only American. He received his “Certificate of Renunciation” from Canada on Tuesday, formally ending his dual citizenship.
