NC legal experts (yes, we have a large panel of over-educated, under-sourced pundits, none of whom are actually, um, lawyers) say current Texas resident Ted Cruz is in a spectacularly good position to lead both countries out of their current state of liberal-socialist-communist-narco paralysis and degradation into the Promised Land and help prevent cross-border infiltration.
WASHINGTON — Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born.
Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say.
That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy — the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag — pull out his Calgary, Alberta, birth certificate and obtain a passport.
