Five people in northern Alabama have filed a federal lawsuit claiming Texas congressman Ted Cruz is ineligible to run for president.

Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father.

The U.S. Constitution limits the presidency to ‘natural born’ U.S. citizens. There are differences of opinion on whether or not the federal courts have established what those two words mean.

Cruz’s eligibility has been a frequent campaign theme of Donald Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner.

A Cruz spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said only that he wasn’t aware of the lawsuit.

‘I haven’t seen it,’ he told in an email.

The lawsuit seeks a ‘declaratory judgment’ from a federal judge ‘declaring that Rafael Edward Cruz is ineligible to qualify/run/seek and be elected to the Office of President of the United States of America.

The plaintiffs, Sebastian Green, Shannon Duncan, Kathryne Spears, Kyle Spears and Jerry Parker are all supporters of Trump’s candidacy, according to

‘Mr. Cruz cannot be a natural born citizen of two (2) countries,’ the five argue. ‘This would violate elementary rules of logic. Since the Defendant, at the moment of birth, was located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada; he became a citizen of Canada by virtue of it.’
