After producing his birth certificate yesterday, The Dallas Morning News pointed out that Cruz is actually a dual citizen. At first Cruz and his staff appeared to deny that he is a dual citizen. But in a statement just released from his office, he seems to have come around to the fact that he is in fact a dual citizen and says he is willing to renounce his Canadian citizenship (and presumably any loyalty to Canadian head of state Elizabeth II), if it's true.

To renounce his Canadian citizenship, Cruz simply needs to fill out this four page form and pay $100.
