Can Canadian Born Ted Cruz Run For President?

Ted Cruz was born in Alberta Canada to a native Cuban and a mother born in the United States. If I use the same argument that Obama birthers used, he can't. Obama was born in the United States (Hawaii). I have a friend who father was born in Great Britain to an American GI and a British mother. My friend is classified as an alien and must have a Green Card.

"Peaceful Majorities" ARE Irrelevant!

No assertion is more correct, IMHO! And this relates to ALL groups as well.
