Take Him Back

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.

3 barks and woofs on “Take Him Back

  1. I always understood that if one is born in another country and one or both of the parents are American citizens, the parents could register the birth at the American Embassy in that country and you would be considered an American citizen “born abroad”. .

    • Yes, that’s the case. John McCain was born in Panama to American parents, but he didn’t get birthered. I’m being snarky about Ted Cruz because the folks who claimed that Barack Obama wasn’t really a citizen are sure that Mr. Cruz is.

      • But McCain was born in an American military base so that is probably a different situation. And your comment about Ted Cruz are really very on point and moderate.
