I’m an expat American with children born in Finland, and as someone who is openly in favor of Ted Cruz for president, I would like to offer a solution to the current dilemma facing the Cruz campaign. How about showing your own birth certificate and not your mother’s?
I’ll do it in reverse, here is the certificate of birth for my own child (redacted), will the Cruz campaign show a same/ similar certificate like this one? Do take note, it’s not a digital version, but a photocopy of an original with the stamp from the US Embassy in Helsinki.
Here is a Diana West piece in which she notes what Lawrence Sellin has to say about the Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America:
Lawrence Sellin further reports:
Cruz came to the U.S. with his parents in 1974, but no evidence has been provided to indicate that his parents filed a CRBA [Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States of America] form with the U.S. Government or if Ted Cruz was issued a U.S. passport prior to entering the country. All Freedom of Information Act requests filed to obtain documents confirming the true official U.S. citizenship status of Ted Cruz have been denied and will remain sealed until he agrees to allow any such records to be released.
Cruz should immediately release these documents — regardless of the precedent for stonewalling set by Barack Obama.
