This posting will delve into the 1952 INA and what it states.
1st off — Here is the link to the FULL Text. It is a 120 page PDF file. I will only post a few images here from specific portions of this law.
Sec. 301 reads — “(a) The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth: (4) a person born outside the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year prior to the birth of the such person…” [Blue emphasis is mine]
Was Eleanor Cruz continuously in the U.S. for ONE YEAR before Ted Cruz was born in December of 1970? I think it has been well documented that Rafael & Eleanor moved to Canada about 1967. So, the answer is NO.. Eleanor was NOT in the USA for 1 year prior to Ted being born.
Did Rafael Cruz become a Naturalized US Citizen before Ted turned 16 years of age? No he did not. Did Eleanor retain her Constant U.S. Citizenship? That is the $64,000 question. According to recent information, both Eleanor & Rafael have shown up as being registered to vote in Canada in 1974 — only 3 short years after Ted was born.
Did Rafael Cruz gain Canadian Citizenship in or before 1974? Yes he did. Was Rafael Cruz a legal guardian of Ted Cruz? Yes he was. Did Rafael, or Eleanor, file an application for the child Ted in Canada? That is another $64,000 question. We don’t know. Since Ted was Born in Canada, he was already a Canadian Citizen so said application may not have been necessary.
Again, did Eleanor apply for Canadian Citizenship shortly after Ted was born — The 3rd $64,000 question! We do not know. All of Ted’s records are sealed. Where have heard THAT before — O’YEAH — One Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro.
SD2010 Commentary: Again, a ‘Citizen at Birth’ is something completely different than a natural born Citizen as stated in our Constitution. The ‘Citizen at birth’ phrase has been used in lots of legislation over the years. Our lawmakers did this on purpose to distinguish a difference between it and the ‘natural born Citizen’ phrase used in Article II, Section 1.
