Ted Cruz: The Anchor Baby Candidate

Published

on

In a series of tweets, Coulter, an ardent anti-immigration advocate, suggested that Cruz was not a “natural born citizen,” a requirement to run for President outlined in the Constitution:

Cruz

Cruz

Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada to an American mother and Cuban father. His mother’s citizenship status qualifies him as a “natural-born” U.S. citizen at birth according to legal interpretations of the Constitution.Coulter herself seemed to recognise this reality as recently as a few years ago. In a tweet from 2013, she explained that Cruz “was born a citizen” by virtue of his mother and “CAN RUN FOR PRESIDENT.”Cruz

In 2009, she also dismissed those who questioned whether President Barack Obama actually was born in the United States as “a few cranks” who were an embarrassment to the Republican Party.

Coulter’s dramatic reversal on Cruz’s eligibility to be President closely mirrored that of his GOP presidential rival Donald Trump, who was once an outspoken Obama birther.

Though Trump told ABC in September that Cruz’s presidential eligibility was valid and had been “checked out by every attorney,” he suggested in a Tuesday Washington Post interview that Cruz could be “tied up in court for two years” over his citizenship status.

As for Cruz, he dismissed these accusations as “political noise” on Wednesday, insisting that the matter was “settled law.”

I sometimes wonder if some on isn’t smart enough to put a beret in her hair WHY ANYBODY LISTENS TO HER!! She is a SHOCK JOCK JOURNALIST!! Which way is the wind blowing ??? Look for Ann!

  • mona callender says:

    then anyone born in a forgein country with one parent an American citizen can be president….BS…so an Iranian born a Russian born or a syria born or Chinese and it goes on and on and on…..where did the constitution go?

  • B.F. Rippy says:

    We should be demanding (by subpoena) Barack Obama’s birth certificate AND records at Columbia University, where he claims he graduated from!

  • Evangeline S. De Luna says:

    I am not a law scholar but I understand an anchor baby is one born in the US to illegal immigrant parents. Mr. Cruz was born in Canada to an American citizen mother and his citizenship rights are protected no different than the rights of children born in foreign countries to American citizen parents living there due to military assignments, etc.

    • Maggie says:

      No, he’s not an anchor baby. But he’s also not a “natural born citizen” which is a requirement for POTUS.

  • Reba Reyna says:

    Ted Cruz is more eligible to run for president than that foreigner is.
    Ted will be good for America.

  • Butch Youmans says:

    If you are born anywhere in world and your parent(Mother) is a natural born american citizen then you are an american citizen by birth. Other wise all americans serving this country in foreign lands and have children there would not be american citizens either.

    • Maggie says:

      Citizen maybe. “Natural born citizen” no. Read the definition in Vattel’s “Laws of Nations” which is what our founding fathers used to define terms in the Constitution.

  • RRob markle says:

    His mother was a US citizen doesn’t matter where he was born. He is the one who knows the Constitution inside out and I believe in him as a fighter for the American people

  • Jim says:

    Any child born to an Amerikan citizen overseas or otherwise is an Amerikan Citizen by birth. I have two children that was born in Germany to my wife who is German, but because I was an Amerikan citizen, both children are Amerikan citizens by birth.
    Cruz is an Amerikan citizen by birth as his Mother was an Amerikan citizen. Makes no difference if he was born in Amerika or Canada or France, Germany, or England.
    Get off the BS that his is an anchor baby…perhaps whoever believes this needs to talk about illegal mexicans or something else.

  • Nathan says:

    I disagree because one of his parents was a legitimate United States citizen and that’s all is required for you to be considered a natural born citizen. an anchor baby is a child of an illegal alien used by such illegal aliens to attempt to grant or gain benefits or citizenship because of the baby’s status. Ted Cruz in no way whatsoever in any way associated with being an anchor baby. in fact, he does not support the anchor baby misrepresentation of the 14th amendment used by illegal aliens so they can have American citizen children ,that would be hypocrisy, which Ted Cruz to my knowledge is not a hypocrite.

  • Ray says:

    Ann I just lost all respect for you. Cruz is a true conservative that at least appears to have some principles. By your way of thinking the children of military parents aren’t citizens. As far as being an anchor baby? That’s idiotic. Anchor babies come from NON-citizens. Thus “anchor” to bring the illegal parents into the country. Cruz is not a rude running mouth like Trump. Ann you can’t say birthers are cranks and then become one without looking foolish, just because you support someone else. To the GOP, stop shooting each other down you nitwits. You only give ammo to the idiot democrats. Do we REALLY want 4 years of Hitlery or Bernie the Socialist?

  • Frances Haase says:

    He renounced his Canadian citizenship.

  • Elvina says:

    There is a big question Mark hanging there his mother was an American Citizen but from what we are hearing she gave up her citizenship for Canadian Citizenship which means she was not an American citizen. An investigation in Canada needs to be done and find out the truth before he runs any further. I am believing the fact she gave up her citizenship to America for Canada

  • Mike says:

    The historically accepted definition of “natural born citizen” is one who is born of one US citizen, regardless of the birth location. If this were not the case, any child born of US citizen parents while out of the US would not be a citizen. For instance a child born while the parents were on a cruise ship would be a citizen of the country the cruise ship was registered in. That is an asinine interpretation.

    If you really want a legal definition, it will have to be decided by the Supreme Court and who could guess what they would decide. Probably why no one has pursued it that far.

    Those raising the question now are just playing “politics”.

    The other type of citizenship is naturalized. A naturalized citizen would be

  • Chris says:

    His Mom was an American!

  • Virginia says:

    Classic case of “what goes around, comes around.”

  • Emmett says:

    The lady is revisiting the question and reversing her first opinion because she is now backing another candidate, Cruz is first probably the most qualified constitutional scholar to study the question. Also, many titled and vastly qualified constituional legal types agree with him.

  • Rocky says:

    It would depend on whether or not his mother was still a American citizen at the time of his birth. At this point however, it may not matter. Since Obama few of our laws are enforced and not enough Americans seem to care. Our elected officials certainly do not. Both political parties have proved that.

  • TurtleDove says:

    Hey, we let a Muslim, Socialist, African run. So what’s the problem?

  • Guy Smith says:

    Ted Cruz is in no way an anchor baby. His mother was a US citizen and his father became a legal immigrant, then a citizen.

  • RJ Betterton says:

    Born of an citizen mother.

  • Jeff Green says:

    He’s an American citizen due to his Mother being an American citizen. And quite frankly his stance on political issues is closer to the conservative principles the Republican Party is supposed to stand for than any other Republican presidential candidate. He’s also the most intelligent. I’m good with either Cruz or Trump as the Republican Party presidential nominee.

  • Ken Forbes says:

    What about Obama??? No Comparison.

  • George Boller says:

    The Constitution defines what a natural born citizen is an I believe Ted Cruz meets that definition. If a person who claims to be born in the US and lives all his formative years outside the US in a country that is the polar opposite of the US, then someone born in a neighboring country with almost identical cultures should not be a problem

  • James Dees says:

    What the Hell is Obama what about his mane is not Muslim.HE is doing everything he can to destroy America. He is a Muslim sane as the Islamic Terrorists. Where was he Born

  • s taylor says:

    Trump, Coulter and Sen. McCain are all hypocrites and embarrassments to themselves and others.
    The Constitution and legislation going back to the 1790’s all support that Ted Cruz is indeed an American Citizen and eligible to be our President. Enough said!

  • Patricia Moore says:

    Ted Cruz is more American than Obama!
    Ted Cruz stands for America & the Constitution! Obama is trying to destroy American & our Constitution. Both of Obama’s parents were not American & I DO NOT believe he was born in Hawaii. The Dems NEVER vetted Obama. Trump & Coulter should stop spreading “Birther” stories. They dismissed birthers as cranks, when against Obama!

  • Will Schantz says:

    Born of an American Citizen anywhere on the
    planet is an American Citizen by constitutional
    law. We have friends who fit this exact issue.

  • Will Schantz says:

  • Arthur says:

    If that implication were true Canada must have a different law than I am aware of. Constitutionally his mother is an American and; therefore, Ted Cruz is an American citizen.

  • JK says:

    There are two distinctly different types of citizenship classifications related to holding the office of president and a member of congress. Congress members must be US citizens for up to nine years to meet requirements to be a candidate. Article II Section 1 Clause 5 states “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;….” Our Founding Fathers knew, because of the age of the newly formed United States, that a “natural born Citizen” would not be possible at the time of the Constitution’s adoption; no “natural born Citizen” of the US would meet the minimum thirty-five age requirement. This wording by the Founding Fathers coincides with the Minor v. Happersett ruling that defines a “natural born Citizen” as the offspring born in a country to parents who are its citizens. They knew it was paramount to have a president of unwavering allegiance. This ruling’s definition has never been court challenged or overruled.

    It is obvious that when Senator Cruz was born in Canada his father was a Cuban citizen. Governor Jingal and Senator Rubio’s parents were not yet naturalized US citizens at the times of their birth. They are “anchor babies” who were born to foreign citizens legally residing in the US. Senator Cruz claims he is a “natural born Citizen” according to Title 8 USC 1401(g). This law describes those who are “nationals and citizens of the United States at birth”. According to this law, Cruz is eligible to be a senator or representative only, but not president. There is nothing in this law or any other law not repealed that associates or links the Supreme Court’s definition of “natural born Citizen” to “citizens of the United States at birth”. (The Naturalization Act of 1790 was repealed by the Naturalization Act of 1795. Any mention of “natural born Citizen” was removed in the 1795 Act.) Anyone interpreting this statute claiming “natural born Citizen” and “nationals and citizens of the United States at birth” mean the same thing is jumping to a conclusion and bending the law as it was written. The Supreme Court has never applied the term “natural born Citizen” to any other category than “those born in the country of parents who are citizens thereof”.

    The 2011 Congressional Research Service report by Jack Maskell fails to disclose that his “British Common Law” theory definition of “natural born Citizen” was completely contrary to the nine justices’ adoption of Vattel’s “Law of Nature” theory definition in Minor v. Happersett. He claims the definition of “natural born Citizen” in Minor v. Happersett to be merely dictum. Mr. Maskell, in his report, omits the findings in Ogileve Et Al., Minors v. United States, where Justice Breyer states that when the Court discusses a certain reason as an independent ground in support of their decision, then that reason is not simply dictum. He failed to reveal that the words “natural born Citizen” were removed when the Naturalization Act of 1790 was repealed in 1795. The CRS report by Jack Maskell shows itself to be nothing more than a biased opinion. A CRS report by a legislative lawyer does not overrule or overturn the unanimous Supreme Court meaning of “natural born Citizen” in Minor v. Happersett.

    Congress made an unconstitutional resolution to make McCain, who was born in another country, eligible to run for president. That action confirmed that Congress acknowledged the definition of “natural born Citizen” given by the Supreme Court. Since Congress made this resolution for McCain, they would have to again make an unconstitutional resolution for Canadian-born Cruz. Congress does not have the authority to amend the US Constitution through a simple resolution!

    From 2003 through 2007, Democrats in Congress introduced numerous bills to amend the “natural born Citizen” clause of the Constitution. At least one of these six or seven attempts involved removing the words “natural born Citizen” and inserting “must be a citizen for twenty years”. These efforts by the Democrats were all made in advance of Obama’s presidency.

    Actions by both Republicans and Democrats in Congress have demonstrated that they have adopted the Supreme Court’s definition of “natural born Citizen” and tried to change it to fit their agendas. Congress would not have taken those steps if the Title 8 USC 1401 law applied to a “natural born Citizen”. Why does the media, including constitutional conservative websites, both political parties, and most of the populous, continue to acknowledge ineligible presidential candidates?

  • Nina says:

    Coulter should be ashamed of herself!! Just bc Cruz is not her man!! Bullcrap!! We have Obama her for 7 LONG YEARS and nobody is making a big deal out of the fact that we know he should never haver been the president!! Look what he has done to this country!!

  • cheri says:

    just look at Obama and what he got by with

  • Marie says:

    The Constitution clearly says if a person has an American parent, they are an American citizen even if they are born in another part of the world. ( The framers did not deal with space stations.)

  • RALPH BOYLE says:

    TO START WITH, I DO NOT PERSONALLY BELEIVE MOST OF WHAT CRUZ SAYS AND PROMISES, EVERY WORD AND MOVEMENT IS OVERLY REHEARSED AND MEMORIZED. TO THE SUBJECT OF ELIGIBLE, I DO NOT BELIEVE HE SHOULD BE ELIGIBLE SINCE THE FOUNDING FATHERS FELT THAT ONLY A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN WAS FOR THE REASON OF NOT HAVING ANY ALLIANCE TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY THROUGH THE TIES OF ONES PARENTS, SENATOR CRUZ FATHER WAS EVENTUALLY NATURALIZED, BUT NOT UNTIL 2005, NOT EXACTLY AN ANCHORBABY SINCE HE WAS BORN IN CANADA.
    ON THE OTHER HAND AND NOT BEING MENTIONED IS THE FACT THAT SENATOR RUBIO IS EXACTLY WHAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED NOT BEING ELIGIBLE, HE MAY HAVE BEEN BORN IN AMERICA, BUT NEITHER OF HIS PARENTS WERE CITIZENS, NATURALIZED OR NATURAL BORN, IN FACT HIS PARENTS DID NOT BECOME NATURALIZED UNTIL 1975, FIVE YEARS AFTER HIS BIRTH SO ESSENTIALLY HE WOULD BE THE TRUE MEANING OF AN ANCHORBABY, SENATOR RUBIO APPARENTLY IS TRYING TO FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE SET BY OBAMA, FIRST TERM SENATOR WHO FEELS HE IS MUCH TOO SMART TO MERELY BE IN THE SENATE, TIME TO MOVE UP TO BE THE PRESIDENT. THIS SHOULD NOT BECOME THE STANDARD OF AMERICA, IF WE CONTINUE TO JUST TURN OUR HEADS AND ALLOW THOSE WHO ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT WE ARE GIVING UP OUR RIGHTS AND OUR COUNTRY TO OTHERS FROM OUTSIDE THE U.S. IF THIS TYPE OF ACTION GOES UNCHALLENGED WE ARE JUST PUTTING IT ALL AT RISK. THINK OF IT THIS WAY, IF USAMA BID LADEN WHILE IN AMERICA HAD FATHERED A CHILD WITH AN AMERICAN WOMAN, WOULKD WE STILL THINK IT IS PERFECTLY FINE TO ALLOW THEIR CHILD EVENTUALLY TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT OF A COUNTRY HIS FATHER TRIED TO DESTROY.
    I SENT A LETTER TO SENATOR RUBIO FOUR YEARS AGO AND TOLD HIM AS AN ATTORNEY HE SHOULD KNOW HE IS VIOLATING ALL ETHICS BY TRYING TO CLAIM ELIGIBLITY WHEN HE KNOWS IT NOT TO BE TRUE. AS I EXPLAINED TO HIM, HIS CHILDREN WOULD BE ELIGIBLE SINCE THEY WOULD BE SECOND GENERATION AMERICANS, BUT HE WOULD NOT BE ELIGIBLE EVER. RIGHT NOW ALL THE FOCUS IS ON CRUZ AND IT SEEMS EVERYONE INCLUDING RUBIO ARE TRYING TO POINT OUT THAT CRUZ IS NOT ELIGIBLE, APPARENTLY THIS IS HIS ATTEMPT AT THE OLD TRICK OF TRYING TO HIDE IN PLAIN SITE. IN MY OWN OPINION NEITHER ONE SHOULD BE ELIGIBLE SINCE THERE IS OBVIOUSLY INFLUENCE FROM OUTSIDE INTEREST FROM A FOREIGN COUNTRY!

  • Glenn says:

    Show me Obama’s Real certificate and account for his transcripts He was not vetted.

  • mike Cornwell says:

    Already set law that born outside the USA of an mother who is an AMERICAN citizen, he is an American citizen. Totally constitutional and coulter and trump are blithering RINO idiot POS

  • Doug Ehrle says:

    First, Ann Coulter loves Chris Christie, she couldn’t stop talking about him last election cycle. She and The Chump need to read the 1790 law and the amendment, Title 8, section 104. Cruz is clearly eligible and is clearly a US citizen. Trump even said so before, but now that Cruz is a serious threat to him in Iowa, he’s throwing it out there, walking it back, hoping it sticks with the Trump Trolls long enough to discourage dopes not smart enough to study the law from voting for Cruz. That is why Donald Trump is no better than Obama, he’s the Republican version of a progressive democrat.

  • Colter is a nut job.. I do not believe any thing she has to say,, it is mostly BS

  • anthony says:

    He has constitutional law behind him as it was originally written.

  • D Barker says:

    After reviewing the Constitution and exactly what it says about who is a citizen and who is not….he IS a natural born citizen and the most qualified to be President. This is NOT a question mark, but fact.

  • larry says:

    Cruz was born the son of an American citizen. He has a right to run. I am voting for trump, but he should be allowed to run. Besides, the one we have now was born in Kenya. A village in Kenya called: they want their idiot back!!!!!

  • Chuck says:

    Laws in effect at time of birth are fulfilled completely.
    Funny how their perspective changes when faced with the reality their side might LOSE!

  • Reynolds says:

    I love and admire Ann Coulter, but she is wrong on this one. It is a losing argument, and it is a loser because it is not true. Ted Cruz was born to an American living abroad. She never renounced her citizenship. That makes him an American at birth, without having to do anything else. Every year thousands of US servicemen and women stationed abroad give birth to children. These children are Americans at birth, without having to do anything else.
    I object to the headline on this article by Peter Mankin. It is both salacious and a lie. Shame on you.
    Consider me a former supporter of Absolute Rights. I’ll unsubscribe post haste.

  • Lyon says:

    Some years ago, it was noted that, in a “Presidential Race” the individual born outside the United States the parents, must be there, is support or directed by the U. S. government, ie: military, diplomatic service, et al. Does Mr. Cruz qualify? See Edmund Muskie of Maine.

  • John says:

    Ted was born in canada! Ted born Cuban.
    Hey , Ted cruz is sick in the head to deny and ongoing lie about that! His mother still votes in Canada. Both parent vote in Canada. Ted cruz is another slick scum lawyer lies all the time. As long his mouth opens and sound off.
