Constitutional Lawyer Floyd Abrams: SCOTUS Won't Rule on Cruz Citizenship


By    |   Sunday, 17 January 2016 06:25 PM EST

The U.S. Supreme Court is unlikely to rule on whether Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is qualified to be president, saying it is political issue, constitutional attorney Floyd Abrams said Sunday.

"I think [the Supreme Court] would say, 'We're not going to rule ... We're going to treat this as a political question. Congress can decide. The public can decide' ... I don't think the court would pass judgment,' Abrams told John Catsimatidis, host of "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York.

Cruz was born in Canada, but his mother was an American citizen. While that makes Cruz an American citizen by birth, scholars are split on whether that makes Cruz a "natural born" citizen, and thus qualified to hold the largest office in the land.
