The Post & Email by Sharon Rondeau 1/7/2019

Shortly before 6:00 p.m. EST on Monday, an individual using a “US Senate” ISP opened The Post & Email’s 2016 article on the topic of “natural born Citizen” with specific references to Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

As it happens, both senators were re-elected to a second term in the 2018 midterm elections from their respective states.

Our article, published on March 24, 2016 and titled, “If Sen. Mazie Hirono is a Naturalized Citizen, How is Ted Cruz ‘natural born?’” was written during the height of the 2016 Republican presidential primaries wherein then-businessman Donald Trump and Cruz sparred bitterly for the nomination.

Cruz noticeably did not endorse Trump at the party convention in July that year.  Rather, he said, voters should “vote their conscience up and down the ticket” in November.

On several occasions in 2016, Trump raised the question of Cruz’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president, were he to be nominated and elected, given his birth in Canada.  At one point, Cruz responded that because Trump’s mother was from Scotland,  there could be a question about Trump’s eligibility.

Trump’s mother was naturalized as a U.S. citizen in 1942, four years before son Donald was born in Queens, NY on June 14, 1946.

After The Dallas Morning News released in 2014 an image it said was a reproduction of Cruz’s Canadian birth certificate provided by Cruz himself, Cruz claimed to have been unaware that he possessed Canadian citizenship to that day.  Eight months later, he formally renounced it.

Born December 22, 1970 to a Cuban-citizen father and presumed American-citizen mother, Cruz was considered a Canadian citizen at birth.  The Morning News reported Cruz as having been born “an instant U.S. citizen” because of his mother’s U.S. citizenship.  “But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born,” the article continued.
