WASHINGTON, Nov. 28 (UPI) — Florida Congressman Alan Grayson said in an interview he would file a lawsuit against Texas Senator Ted Cruz difficult him as ineligible to be president if Republicans nominate him to operate simply because he was born in Canada.

Cruz did not admit his dual citizenship publicly until 2013 when the Dallas Early morning News published his beginning certificate, but renounced it in 2014, expressing at the time “as a U.S. senator, I imagine I must be only an American.”
“The Structure claims natural born People in america, so now we’re counting Canadians as organic born Individuals?” Grayson stated throughout an interview with Alan Colmes on the radio community. “How does that work? I’m waiting for the minute that he receives the nomination and then I will file that beautiful lawsuit saying that he is unqualified for the occupation due to the fact he’s ineligible.”
