Skip to comments.Maine Gov. LePage, my Canadian-born daughters "had to be naturalized, they couldn't be natural"

Governor LePage "I also have two daughters born in Canada, and they had to be naturalized, they couldn't be natural."
Howie Carr: "Really? You don't think your daughters could run for President?"
Governor LePage: "They can't. I know they can't. I've already looked into it."

LePage married a Canadian, and their daughters were born in Canada. Having one US citizen parent did not get them automatic US citizenship, it seems.
And yet PEOPLE HERE, completely ignore the OBVIOUS FACT... Cruz was born in Canada, was a Canadian citizen until VERY recently, and can’t even produce an America BC like Obama did. Why are we pretending that he is eligible?
Of course not.
It seems never ending the twisting path of facts mixed with part-facts that lead to and from Trump.
A half truth is a whole lie.
Trumpbot, dual citizenship has no bearing on any US Citizenship status. Desperation will get you nowhere.
The Hoseheads give everyone “dual citizen” in hopes of collecting more taxes to feed the liberal doom.
Heck I’ve been up there on several occasions, they probably made me a dual citizen.
Oh? When? After he came back? The day he was born? Citizens can apply for benefits. Know of anyone born in Canada to an American who has applied recently? I like Cruz, used to love him, but his stock goes down daily with me.
We are not talking about citizenship. We are talking about natural born citizenship. Cruzoids simply CANNOT understand the difference. It’s a sickness really.
Has Cruz ever been naturalized?
<><> If Cruz/s parents declared US citizenship for him in Canada, then he has a Canadian-issued document called a Consular Report of Birth Abroad.....the legal equivalent of a US Birth Certificate.
<><> Cruz either has one from the time of his Canadian birth or he does not. If he does not, then he is NOT a US Citizen.... (he was never naturalized by his own admission).
More importantly, Canada at the time of Cruz/s birth did not recognize dual nationality. So it appears Harvard-educated Cruz schemed to dupe Texas voters by the charade of renouncing his Canadian citizenship that never was when the Dallas Morning News exposed him.
Cruz either has the Canadian-issued Consular Report of Birth Abroad, which is his legal proof of US Citizenship, or he doesn't. Would appear his parents never applied for it....making Cruz a bonafide Canadian.
Significantly, Canada prohibited dual nationality at the time of Cruz/s birth. If Cruz can/t produce a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, there's a little problem with the US Senate office Cruz holds now (and was elected to under false pretenses) .......not to mention his doomed aspirations to be US President.
The Dems have access to the CRBA thru State archives and you can rest assured they know the truth and have set a trap.
That is why Cruz supposedly sealed his US birth documents. They don/t exist.
Cruz is putting us thru this fiasco for his personal career advancement. Nothing more. If he really cared about us, or this country, he would have settled this years ago.
He/s lining his pockets with campaign contributions, borrowing campaign money from Goldma Sachs, knowing he is not qualified? What does that say about his character and integrity?
This could also amount mail fraud---if Cruz made falsified assertions WRT his eligibility to raise money as a US candidate.
By his own admission, he stated he has not been naturalized.
Why? Doesn't he have access to photoshop?
Well my Philippines-born daughter did not have to be naturalized — she was a U.S. citizen at birth, never breathed a breath of air as a non-U.S. citizen and never had to go through the naturalization process. All I did was apply for a U.S. Passport, which essentially “claimed” her U.S. citizenship. This has been my personal experience, so I’m not sure what this LePage guy is talking about. Seems to me, if his daughters went through the naturalization process, it was unnecessary.
Yes, they were US citizens at birth via Title 8 Section 1401 subsection G of the US Code and as such have never needed to be naturalized.
The Gov is in error.
The truth! How dare you?
Canada did not have dual citizenship in 1970.
Because Ted Cruz was naturally born a US citizen having inherited his citizenship from his mother via Title 8 Section 1401 sub section G. Canadian citizenship laws are irrelevant to US Citizenship laws.
