Ted Cruz is US citizen, judge rules

A judge in New Jersey has ruled that Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz is a "natural-born citizen" under the US constitution and may run in the state's primary elections in June.

A group of residents had challenged the Texas senator's eligibility for the presidency. He was born in Canada to a Cuban father and American mother. ……………….
…………. On Tuesday, Judge Masin dismissed the challenge, while acknowledging that "absolute certainty as to this issue is only available to those who actually sat in Philadelphia and themselves thought on the issue".

"The more persuasive legal analysis is that such a child, born of a citizen-father, citizen-mother, or both, is indeed a 'natural born citizen' within the contemplation of the constitution," he wrote in a 26-page decision.

Well that holding is a ruling from some District Court judge………. .if federal that ruling applies only to the district it was rendered………and nowhere else………
There are 11 Federal Districts in the US…. which means practitioner has 10 more districts’ to go for the ruling to be nationwide…….. Go Ted Go…………I wonder how he’ll make out in the Ninth Federal District….

Probably upheld. Glad to see them try to settle it.

well I guess you can vote for him now since he is the most conservative of all the major candidates left in the race.

I did not think that he was a US citizen was in question, that he is eligible to be President is. Due of course to being born in Canada, and being up until recently a Canadian citizen
