Ted Cruz claimed: "Under longstanding U.S. law, the child of a U.S. citizen born abroad is a natural-born citizen. If a soldier has a child abroad, that child is a natural-born citizen. That's why John McCain, even though he was born in Panama, was eligible to run for president."
Now, Assuming this Harvard Law Honors Student, who worked for the Supreme Court, is not lying, then we have a problem: Why did we need the 1982 Amerasian Homecoming Act?
Those children are Natural-Born Americans entitled to a US Passport and, to grow up and run for the office of POTUS. Granted, one needs evidence they are the children of Americans -- but it doesn't matter if they are born in or out of wedlock. A Natural-Born American can be illegitimate ... hum-m-m, maybe we already had an illegitimate child who became POTUS ... What do you think? Care to check the History Books?
Moreover, any effort to keep a natural-born American out of America would seem to be a violation of their Constitutional Rights, and grounds for a massive lawsuit -- one that reflects denial of education, freedom, and all kinds of other very costly stuff (costly when the judgment comes down against Congress).
Under the laws, we are talking immigration for about 20,000 Amerasians and that means 20,000 future POTUS candidates -- if Cruz were being honest. Statistically, it is claimed that By 2009, about 50 percent of all the immigrants who arrived under the law had become U.S. citizens. But Cruz argued that, like himself, they are ALL Natural-Born Citizens and, therefore, all already were, from birth, FULL Citizens.
If you support Cruz, then you MUST support the fact that all the Amerasians are Natural-Born Americans and, if they meet the other requirements, could become POTUS -- without challenge or objection.
If you believe Cruz a LIAR and, therefore, unfit to be POTUS, then, naturally you believe Cruz and the Amerasian-citizens to be naturalized citizens and disqualified for the office of POTUS.
