The most recent attack Ted Cruz is facing from his critics are the absurd birther claims. Because he was born in Canada, they claim he is not eligible for the presidency.
However, many constitutional scholars have long believed having at least one American parent met the requirement to be a natural-born citizen. In this case, Cruz’s mother was born in Delaware, making him eligible.
Birther claims against him were never mentioned in the media, until recently, and it is no coincidence they are coming when he is skyrocketing in the polls, even surpassing Donald Trump in some states.
Even Trump in September 2015 said he believed Cruz was eligible. But he flip-flopped ever since.
Cruz’s critics are in panic mode. They know it is a non-issue but will try to push it anyway.n 2008, Senator John McCain was the GOP nominee for president, even though he was born in the Panama Canal Zone. Or take Mitt Romney’s father, George Romney, who was born in Mexico. He still was able to run for president as well, so these birther attacks are nothing new. They’re just an attempt to try to take down political opponents.
