Here is a quick crib sheet you can use with all of your friends to show them how Ted Cruz is not qualified to become president of the United States precisely because Ted Cruz is not a natural-born citizen and wasn't even alive on June 21, 1788, which was 182 years, 6 months and 2 days before Ted Cruz' birth.

All of these facts make Ted Cruz a naturalized citizen. All of these facts arise from Public Law, USSC ruling case law, U.S. Constitution. If Ted Cruz were to get voted into the office of the presidency, it would be illegal for Ted Cruz to swear the oath of office of the presidency.
- Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the US Constitution:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

- Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on December 22,1970.
- Ted Cruz was born as a natural-born citizen of Canada.
- Ted Cruz had natural allegiance to the sovereignty Canada because Ted Cruz was born under the jurisdiction of the sovereign of Canada.
- Had Cruz never entered the USA, Ted Cruz would have been a full-fledged citizen of Canada and issued a Canadian passport to travel, barring any criminal activity in Canada.
- Ted Cruz never would have needed to acquire Canadian citizenship through naturalization in Canada precisely because his Canadian citizenship came at birth.
- As Cruz was a natural-born Canadian citizen, Cruz could only become a US citizen by a naturalizing law of the U.S. Congress.
- All acts of Congress are law and happen post facto of the Constitution.
- Congress only has the authority granted to it by the Constitution to naturalize persons by Article 1 Section 8:
The Congress shall have Power ... To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;
- There is no provision in the United States Constitution that authorizes Congress to decree anyone natural-born.
- All citizenship bills passed by Congress and signed into law are naturalization laws.
- Naturalization laws make artificially-born citizens by decree.
- Today, Congress naturalizes citizens at birth in 8 U.S. CODE § 1401.

- In 1898, in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, the United States Supreme Court ruled that only those born under the jurisdiction of Congress — 14th Amendment citizens — become automatic, natural-born citizens.
- In 1967, in Afroyim v. Rusk, 387 U.S. 253, the United States Supreme Court ruled that citizens of the United States may not be deprived of their citizenship involuntarily.
- In 1971, in Rogers v. Bellei, 401 U.S. 815, the United States Supreme Court narrowed the ruling of the Afroyim decision and ruled that only a 14th Amendment citizen had safeguarded citizenship, but Congress retained authority to regulate the citizenship status of a person who was born outside the United States to a U.S. citizen parent.
- In 1978, Congress repealed the law at issue in Rogers v. Bellei —a requirement for a minimum period of U.S. residence.

- Ted Cruz was 1) not born in the states or territories of the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof; 2) and was not naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.
