Dear A.M. Costa Rica:
You left out an important point in your coverage of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s entry into the 2016 U.S. presidential race at Liberty University on Monday. The large crowd was comprised mostly of Liberty University students for whom attendance was mandatory. Had their presence been optional, the turnout might have been much less impressive.
In your story, you make mention of Sen. Cruz’s U.S. citizenship based upon his mother’s U.S. citizenship despite the Senator’s having been born in Canada. Mrs. Cruz’s citizenship, of course, is based upon her own (supposed) birth in the United States, but so far no one has produced a credible copy of her birth certificate to prove her citizenship. This unfolding story should be fun to watch.
