Victor Williams has a theory about Ted Cruz. He believes the Canadian-born senator is not a “natural born citizen” and is thus ineligible to be president. And he’s decided to prove it the only way he can: by running for president himself.
Cruz is pulling “a long con” on the American people, says Williams, a law professor at the Catholic University of America, in Washington, DC. He believes Cruz is attempting to be “born again”—not in a religious way, but by using American citizenship laws to claim natural born status, which he believes the Constitution reserves only for those born on American soil. “It’s an impossibility to make someone reborn on American soil when they were born in Canada,” he says. “That probably sounds a little wackier even than running for president.”
