I say we let the Supreme Court decide who is a natural born citizen. The Constitution isn't clear and never defines the term. The possibilities are:
A: Must have one citizen parent, but can be born anywhere.
B. Must have two citizen parents, but can be born anywhere.
C. Must be born on US soil, but can have noncitizen parents.
D. Must be born on US soil, but can have only one citizen parent.
E. Must be born on US soil and have both citizen parents.
Cruz fits A. Obama fits D. Neither are natural born citizens under definition E. There have been several questions recently about candidates. John McCain fits B. The Senate passed a resolution in 2008 declaring him a natural born citizen. It didn't carry the force of law. Several people have tried to have the courts consider if Barack Obama is a natural born citizen, but the cases have been dismissed due to "Lack of standing."
