As was noted yesterday, Bobby Jindal and Marco Rubio would both flunk the “natural born citizenship” test as being put forth by those who are advocating for the end to birthright citizenship. So would Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. But Mr. Cruz, too, is “absolutely” in favor of ending birthright citizenship.
I just think it’s ironic that the people who would probably have the toughest time reassuring their constituents that they’re real ‘Muricans are the biggest mouths for shutting the door on people who have a stronger claim to being citizens than they do.
As for Mr. Cruz, he had to actually fill out a form to renounce his birthright Canadian citizenship last year. I would suggest that the good people of his native land take him back; it would be just desserts for sending us Justin Bieber. But I really like my Canadian friends.
