Texas Sen. Ted Cruz released his birth certificate, and it shows a dual U.S./Canadian citizenship:
He's Canadian! Wait, he's American! Either way, he's scaring the heck out of Democrats… http://t.co/BLwqfOD4Ip

From the Dallas Morning News:
Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born.
Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say.
A 2016 slogan based on these facts has already been suggested:
solution: Cruz' 2016 slogan should be "I make my poutine with freedom fries" http://t.co/RxQ7ILOziA
