Ted Cruz has dual US-Canadian citizenship.
In and of itself, this is not particularly remarkable. Many US citizens have dual citizenship. Some even go back to their home countries, run for office, and even WIN, while still retaining dual citizenship.
What makes Ted Cruz’s dual citizenship so delicious is that the birth circumstances by which he obtained US citizenship are identical to Barack Obama’s, with only three exceptions:
- Ted Cruz’s father was a citizen of Cuba, not Kenya;
- Ted Cruz was not born in any US State or Territory; and
- If you insist on seeing his valid birth certificate, it’s actually … foreign.
