Lawsuit Filed Against Cruz Challenges Presidential Eligibility Over “Birther” Controversy

Lawsuit Filed Against Cruz Challenges Presidential Eligibility Over “Birther” Controversy

Ted Cruz is the subject of a lawsuit over Presidential eligibility concerns because of his Canadian birth, reports say.

While some of those suing are Trump supporters, some are undecided.

“The only thing they can agree on is Mr. Cruz is not eligible to be president,” their lawyer said.

According to The Hill:

“Donald Trump supporters have filed a lawsuit challenging the eligibility of one of his primary rivals, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), to run for president.

The lawsuit, filed Feb. 3 at a district court in Alabama, seeks a judgment “declaring that Rafael Edward Cruz is ineligible to qualify/run/seek and be elected to the Office of the President of the United States of America” due to his Canadian birth.

Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada, to an American mother.

Several of the five plaintiffs — Sebastian Green, Shannon Duncan, Kathryn Spears, Kyle Spears and Jerry Parker — are backing Trump in the Republican primary, their attorney, Thomas Drake, told The Hill, although he said others are still undecided.

“The only thing they can agree on is Mr. Cruz is not eligible to be president,” Drake said.”

    • Trump didn’t file the suit. I just wish the SCOTUS would make a ruling on what natural born means for the constitutional requirement for president so we don’t have to keep going over this.

      Technically since his parents made him a Canadian citizen first then filed to be also an american citizen that does mean you are not naturally a citizen because his parents had to go through a process to be a citizen.

      My 2 concerns are; he was made a canadian citizen first and secondly that his father was not a US citizen.

      The main reason for the natural born clause was so no other country could claim our president as one of their citizens and with only one parent being a citizen another country can claim him are their citizen. This was actually what they should have gone after about obama. It’s not where you were born it’s what happened when you were born.
