Chicago Court Will Reportedly Hear Case on Cruz Presidential Eligibility

Birtherism is now officially a legal issue, as the eligibility of Sen. Ted Cruz to run for president will have a hearing Friday in Chicago, according to multiple news outlets.

According to CNN and ABC, a Cook County Circuit Court judge will hear a lawsuit brought by an Illinois voter who says Mr. Cruz is not a natural-born citizen, as the Constitution requires, because he was born in Canada.

Mr. Cruz has never denied being born in Canada, but maintains that the issue is ridiculous because under longstanding U.S. statutory law, he was automatically a U.S. citizen at birth because his mother was a U.S. citizen . . .

[Lawrence] Joyce told WBBM radio that he supports Ben Carson and has not been in consultation with the campaign of Donald Trump, who has repeatedly said Mr. Cruz might not be eligible to take office.

Like Mr. Trump though, Mr. Joyce said his concern is that the eligibility issue lie unresolved during Republican primaries, thus letting the Democrats take advantage of it after a potential Cruz nomination, when it’d be too late.

    a court in Chicago should be hearing cases that deal with black on black gun violence and the corruption that has ravaged Illinois politics for the last 100 + years…not dealing with something way over their judicial heads…

    Throw in Rubio also to that law suit because he is NOT a natural born citizen, both of his parents were NOT citizens….he is a naturalized citizen, but not a natural born….there is a difference.

      Neither are eligible, if we get it wrong this time, America will fade into the dustbin of history. Just another failed experiment in self-governance! This election is the tipping point. The slightest push in the wrong direction will topple the house and the nation along with it!
