Cruz still has dual citizenship
TORONTO, CANADA- The Canadian born U.S. Senator Ted Cruz still has dual citizenship even though he vowed months ago to drop his north of the border affiliation.
He was born in Calgary and he recently told the Dallas Morning News lawyers were preparing the paperwork to renounce his Canadian citizenship as he said last August.
An immigration lawyer in Canada wonders what's taking so long since renouncing citizenship is a simple and quick process.
Richard Kurland says unless there's a security or mental health issue that hasn't been disclosed it should have been done by now.
The dual citizenship has been a thorny issue for Cruz, the darling of the tea party, since some in the conservative movement had accused President Obama of being born in Africa and ineligible to serve.
