Birther Issue


Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution


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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Some of what we know:

  • Ted Cruz was born on December 22, 1970 in Calgary, Canada.
  • His mother was born in the United States.
  • His father came from Cuba in the 1950s.
Everyone is free to post any legal theories about the issues in this forum.

Let's suppose for a minute that Ted Cruz's biological father was Osama bin Laden and was born in Afghanistan where he lived for the first twenty years of his life. Should he be considered a natural born citizen who is eligible to become president? The framers put the NBC clause in the constitution for a reason.
