Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released his birth certificate Sunday to the Dallas Morning News showing he was born in Canada to an American mother.
On Monday, Cruz said in a statement that if the Dallas Morning News’ report was true, then “I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator; I believe I should be only an American.”
