  •  Dual citizen (0+ / 0-)

    Ted Cruz was a dual citizen at the very moment of his birth: a citizen of Canada because he was born in Canada, and a citizen of the U.S. because his mother transmitted her citizenship to him.

    The parents would have notified the Consulate General in Calgary. (There was one: the first Consulate General in Calgary was established in 1906.)

    Paperwork would have been submitted--mom's passport, Ted's birth certificate, etc.

    In due course, the parents would have received confirmation from the State Department that baby Ted was indeed recognized as a citizen who had been born abroad. All they needed to do then was apply for a passport for him.
