Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was born in Canada. His dad is Cuban, and his mother is American. Can he become president of the United States? CNN's Athena Jones takes a look with this report, "The big question here is whether Ted Cruz is a natural-born citizen. I spoke with several constitutional law experts about this today. And all of them believe that Cruz is. But it's important to know the Constitution doesn't define who is a natural-born citizen. And those are the only people eligible to run for president. Also I should add the Supreme Court has never ruled on this issue."
