McCain was born to two American citizens...


and was born in a territory of the U.S. while parents were in the military and stationed outside mainland U.S. That should never have been an issue.

Canada is not a U.S. territory.

Also, in Canada, the American parent must file papers with the government, proving that parent is an American citizen in order for the child be granted U.S. citizenship. It is not automatic. Maybe things have changed since Cruz was born but that is how it was for my grandsons.
