Pam, looks like there's been quite a lot of publicity recently about Ted Cruz's citizenship.
Henry, Cruz's citizenship is determined by the law at the time of his birth. IFObama had been born in Kenya, then the US law would have also determined his citizenship. Personally, I think the law in effect that might have kept Obama from being a citizen (if he had been born in Kenya) was a little bit dumb. Must have seemed so to others as well, since the law was changed.Over the course of just two days, the Washington Postpounded its readers with 12 "birther" stories aimed at Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Headlines included, "Can Ted Cruz Run for President?", "Canadian Born Ted Cruz Releases Birth Certificate Amid Queries if He's Eligible for Presidential Run," "Ted Cruz: I am Not a Canadian," and "No, Ted Cruz 'Birthers' are Not the Same as Obama Birthers":
If either mother had renounced their US citizenship prior to the birth of their sons, then maybe that would have been cause to say that a child born after such renouncement would not be a citizen.
