CONROE, Texas — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, born in Calgary in 1970, said Monday he would give up any claim he might have to Canadian citizenship.
In a written statement, Cruz said he did not realize he was eligible for dual citizenship until The Dallas Morning News reported that his birth in Canada made him eligible for citizenship there.
“Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship,” Cruz said. “Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator, I believe I should be only an American.”
