Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has hired lawyers to help him renounce his Canadian citizenship, the Dallas Morning News reported Saturday.

“I have retained counsel that is preparing the paperwork to renounce the citizenship,” he told the Dallas Morning News.

Cruz said that he should complete the process by the end of 2014.

The Texas lawmaker has dual citizenship in the U.S. and Canada. Both his parents lived in Canada at the time of his birth, and his mother was an American citizen. His father was a Cuban citizen, and later became a citizen in the U.S.

Correction: This article originally stated that Cruz’s father was an American citizen at the time of his birth. His father was a Cuban citizen at the time, and later became an American citizen.
