Is Ted Cruz Eligible to Become U.S. President?

The Harvard Law School Federalist Society organized a debate between two of the most prominent American constitutional law professors - Lawrence Tribe and Jack Balkin - concerning the possible presidency of Ted Cruz. Can Cruz, born in Canada to a Cuban father and an American mother, be considered a « natural-born citizen » a requirement of article II of the constitution for American presidents? 55 min, no transcript. A very interesting debate about how the U.S. constitution should be interpreted. A report of the debate can be found here.
