Is Ted Cruz a 'Natural Born' Citizen? It's Complicated

Questions surrounding Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for president have been thrown around by his opponents throughout this campaign season. But the issue of if Cruz, who was born in Canada to an American mother, is actually eligible to be president has yet to be settled.

Should Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for president should be explored in court? Weigh in below:

Donald Trump continues to threaten to pursue legal action against Cruz, but Cruz dismissed Trump's threats during Wednesday night's CNN town hall, assuring voters that he is eligible.

"Under the law the question is clear," he said. "There will still be some who try to work political mischief on it, but as a legal matter this is clear and straightforward."

But even though Trump's threats haven't taken legal form yet doesn't mean Cruz is in the clear. Challenges over Cruz's eligibility have been filed in at least three states --and Trump isn't involved in any of them.

According to CNN, an Illinois judge will hear arguments in a lawsuit challenging Cruz's eligibility on Friday.
