No less than the New York Times has trouble with Ted Cruz's citizenship status. It does not, however, have trouble with the citizenship status of millions of "anchor babies" born to illegal aliens on American soil. So now, it appears that the New York Times, beloved tome of the left, believes that being born to an alien mother on American soil is a superior position than being born to an American mother on alien soil as a condition for citizenship. Is this a reasonable position?

Very interesting. Generally here in the US we do not overly generalize, based on our own experience. How in the heck do people know you are foreign? And why do they think your daughter is foreign. And people who hate you for following your life?
You are the kind of person America needs.Illegal immigrants jump the line and politicians want to short change all those who obey the rules.My grandfather came from Ireland because of the American promise, legally.I have a crush on a foreigner.
@Eric, People know I am foreign because of my strong Irish accent from the moment I meet them. They think she is foreign because I am foreign. They also think I am illegal because I am foreign.
@retief, in 2013, Ireland really is the same as the US
Well then, God Bless Ireland.
Same TV shows, Music, attitudes, standard of living and the closer trans Atlantic neighbor. Here is an interested light hearted article
Wow cfin, you should come out west, we do not have that here. All my wifes friends don't just have an accent the actually speak their foreign language, Viet. If we thought a guy was foreign because he spoke Spanish - Wow we would have problems. Move!
Wow....my spell check really messed that up :) Anyway there has always been jokes of Ireland joining the US. The issue being, Ireland already hates being part of the EU and just cant be part of anything but Ireland.
I would love to come out west :)
