Where’s the evidence of Ted Cruz’s United States Citizenship?

From the United States Department of State website:
“A child born abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents may acquire U.S. citizenship at birth if certain statutory requirements are met. The child’s parents should contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America (CRBA) to document that the child is a U.S. citizen. If the U.S. embassy or consulate determines that the child acquired U.S. citizenship at birth, a consular officer will approve the CRBA application and the Department of State will issue a CRBA, also called a Form FS-240, in the child’s name.
“According to U.S. law, a CRBA is proof of U.S. citizenship and may be used to obtain a U.S. passport and register for school, among other purposes.”
I’ve been asking that question for quite some time.
Naysayers, however, will claim he’s American by virtue of his American-born mother… just like Ted does.
But read on, to read what the law says about who is, and who is not a United States Citizen.
Ted’s a Harvard Law School-educated guy, of whom Alan Dershowitz said “Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant,” so he should know better – much better.
I also hasten to point out that Cruz had Canadian Citizenship until only recently, until he officially renounced his Canadian citizenship – an act which Canada also legally recognized, even giving him a certificate so proving.
There’s no denying that he had Canadian citizenship.
But the question is not about his Canadian citizenship, but whether or not he is a United States citizen.
“He’s a Canadian.”

So that begs the question…
Is Ted Cruz now “A Man Without A Country”?

However, it does NOT satisfy the question of his nationality.
Is he – as others have been called – an “anchor baby”?
Where is the evidence of his American citizenship?
The 14th Amendment’s “Citizenship Clause” in Section 1 states that “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
But, Ted Cruz was NOT “born or naturalized in the United States.” He was born in Canada to a Cuban father, and American mother.
Further, when it comes to questions of United States citizenship, 8 U.S.C. § 1401 governs who is, and who is not a United States citizen, and according to the time-line of life events in Ted Cruz’s father & mother in this link, it does NOT appear to support a case for his American citizenship. And rather, in fact, demonstrates that he is NOT a United States citizen in any shape, form, or fashion. Not at all. Not in any way.
Subparagraphs (d), (e), and (g) of the law §1401. Nationals and citizens of United States at birth address children born abroad to parents, only one of whom is an American citizen. And in Ted Cruz’s scenario, an argument/case for his United States citizenship is NOT covered/mentioned under law.
(d) a person born outside of 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 such person, and the other of whom is a national, but not a citizen of the United States;
(e) a person born in an outlying possession of the United States 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 at any time prior to the birth of such person;
(g) a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years: Provided, That any periods of honorable service in the Armed Forces of the United States, or periods of employment with the United States Government or with an international organization as that term is defined in section 288 of title 22 by such citizen parent, or any periods during which such citizen parent is physically present abroad as the dependent unmarried son or daughter and a member of the household of a person (A) honorably serving with the Armed Forces of the United States, or (B) employed by the United States Government or an international organization as defined in section 288 of title 22, may be included in order to satisfy the physical-presence requirement of this paragraph. This proviso shall be applicable to persons born on or after December 24, 1952, to the same extent as if it had become effective in its present form on that date; and
So, now that we have seen & read the law, there is NO circumstance in it that even hints at, or lends itself to any valid argument for him being a United States citizen.
Ted Cruz was:
1.) Born in Canada;
2.) Born to Cuban father & United States mother, both whom;
3.) Lived outside the United States in Canada for at least 4 years before Ted was born.
Knowing these things, it raises further questions about voter fraud, and a veritable array of other nationality-related matters.
He’s been dancing for free much too long, and it’s time to pay the piper.
Ted must now face the music.
