NC legal experts disagree with Orly Taitz. If you take three separate points and tot them up side by side, this is what you get. Born in the U.S.: Obama yes, Cruz no. American father: Obama no, Cruz no. American mother: Obama yes, Cruz yes. Obama has a significant one-point lead on Cruz. Statistically, Obama is 2/3 American, Cruz is 1/3. Nuff said.
“Clearly there is an issue of eligibility,” crusading skeptic of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate Orly Taitz told U.S. News. “It’s basically the same issue as Obama has.”
Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada, in 1970, according to the document. He automatically acquired U.S. citizenship through his American mother, but he also likely gained automatic Canadian citizenship.
“He’s a Canadian” too, Stephen Green, a past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section, told the Dallas Morning News.
