In an article entitled “New Jersey court rules that Ted Cruz is a ‘natural born citizen’ eligible to become president,” Ilya Somin reports that:

On Tuesday, New Jersey Administrative law Judge Jeff Masin ruled against a lawsuit claiming that Senator Ted Cruz is not eligible to become president because he is not a “natural born citizen.” The plaintiffs claimed that Cruz is ineligible because, although he is the son of a US citizen, he was born in Canada (where his parents were living at the time). Judge Masin’s opinion is notable for its detailed analysis of the evidence on the original meaning of the “natural born citizen” and recent scholarship on the subject….

This ruling is the second decision on Cruz’s eligibility. It follows in the footsteps of an an earlier Pennsylvania ruling that reached the same conclusion. But the New Jersey decision includes a more thorough analysis of the arguments on both sides.
