Natural Born Citizenship For Dummies

March 1, 2016



With all the broo-ha-ha about Ted Cruz and his Natural Born Citizenship status, it’s easy to get confused about the reality and truth really is, so  I thought I’d make it as easy to understand as possible.


1. The only place the term “natural born citizen” was ever defined by the founders was in The Naturalization Act of 1790. (link here)

2. The text (as relates to natural born citizenship) of The Naturalization Act of 1790 reads as follows:

“the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as NATURAL BORN CITIZENS.”

3.  If you aren’t a natural born citizen, then you are a NATURALIZED citizen.  Cruz has never been naturalized in the U.S. because he was BORN a citizen of the United States.

That’s really all you need to know. When it comes down to it and IF a court ever does decide to look at it, that is what they’ll refer back to in order to see the original intentions of the founders. It really IS as simple as that.

Of course, as always, you can leave a comment a question regarding the subject here or on my Facebook page.   I’ll address any falsehoods that you may read and I’ll even any challenges to the information that I have provided.
