Canadian born Ted Cruz continues to be challenged on his American citizenship. A Catholic University law professor was the latest person to challenge Cruz’s ability to be President. Victor Wilson actually is running in 9 states as a write-in candidate for the Republican nomination for President simply so he can challenge “Canadian Ted Cruz.”
The law professor claims that Cruz isn’t a natural born citizen which is required of all US Presidents. Wilson challenges that Cruz didn’t become a naturalized citizen until 2014.
But, a New Jersey judge ruled in favor of Cruz and against Wilson’s challenge. The judge says that Cruz is eligible to be President because his mother was an American citizen at the time of his birth in Canada. Cruz’s father was not an American citizen at that time.
Even though he won this round, this problem might not be going away for Cruz anytime soon as there are different legal approaches to challenging his eligibility. And there is a ton of doubt in the minds of voters.

How does "constitutional scholar" Cruz not know SCOTUS defined "Natural Born Citizen" in 1874? pic.twitter.com/ybMMbY0fot

“Natural born Citizen” means, a citizen from birth with no need to go through naturalization proceedings. -Tdonna (#Cruz was born in Canada)

Cruz also had a lot of online furor lodged against him after playing “Born in America” at an event. Um, he wasn’t born in America. That’s pretty clear. You can see that story in the video below.
Do you think Ted Cruz is eligible to be President or does his Canadian birth disqualify him?
