PRESIDENT TED CRUZ -- the next level a court test

PRESIDENT TED CRUZ -- the next level
Case against Ted Cruz's eligibility to be heard in Illinois on Friday
By Theodore Schleifer, CNN Updated 2:11 PM ET, Fri February 19, 2016

Ah the fun, the board of elections in Illinois CORRECTLY declined to remove Cruz from the primary ballot -- there is nothing in Constitution which prevents running for the nomination to be a candidate for POTUS ... the Constitution says he just can't be sworn in if he were to become a candidate and be elected.
Cruz could run as an Independent -- otherwise, the Party would need to determine his eligibility at time of nomination -- basically deciding if they would run someone ineligible to be swrorn in, and thus negate any victory.

NOW, the Illinois might rule on the primary ballot without speaking to the FINAL eligibility issue, or it could cite the eligibility -- say he is ineligible to be POTUS, but still allow him to be on ballot, or say he appears eligible for Illinois purposes. The Illinois court does not have the jurisdiction for a national/federal determination.
"President Ted Cruz: The 2016 Election and America's Future"
states Cruz is clearly ineligible because he is a Natural-Born Canadian AND his citizenship in America is inherited via a NATURALIZATION LAW which allows it to be revoked.
