Ted Cruz birthers are like classic birthers in that they deny reality, which is that the freshman Texas senator meets the constitutional requirements to be president. They are not like classic birthers in that they are not seeking mythical documents that will prove Cruz was born outside America since Cruz has already confirmed he was born in Canada.
Birthers.org says Cruz can't be president "because the law of Canada made him a citizen of Canada by BIRTH." The ObamaReleaseYourRecords blog notes, "What complete madness to suggest someone born in another country is a 'natural born Citizen' of the United States and eligible to be POTUS."
Unlike the President Obama birthers —who believe he was born in Kenya and his parents faked his birth certificate and his birth announcement — the facts of the case are not in dispute. What is in dispute is the law of what makes a "natural born Citizen." As The National Review's Eliana Johnson explains, Cruz's mom was born and raised in Delaware, making her an American citizen, and thus, by federal law, making Cruz an American citizen at birth. The Constitution requires the president to be a "natural born Citizen." Legal scholars agree that means a citizen at birth, as opposed to one who was naturalized, which is someone who immigrated to the U.S. and became a citizen later in life.
