Yes, correct!  They moved operations to Canada in 1964.

Thought it was American Motors. Did he own it, or was he just the CEO? Either way, am sure he didn't drive a Gremlin.

Prob rite--tried to be  prez  but born in Mexico.

I thought Romney ran in The Republican presidential primary.  How could he do that, if he had been born in Mexico?  Why would The Republicans waste money on running an ineligible candidate in a primary?  To assure that their favourite would win, and guarantee he'd be able to run in the national election?  No one knew until during the vote-counting or after, that he had been born in Mexico?  Isn't a person born of at least one US citizen parent considered born a US citizen, and, thus, eligible to become US President?  One shouldn't be punished for being born on holiday, or during their parents' university professorship's overseas visits or work periods.  I always thought that the rule was that "naturalised citizens could not become US President".  As long as one of my parents were Canadian, I could have run for Prime Minister of Canada, as long as I had chosen Canadian citizenship at 21 years of age.  Now, I believe it is 18 years of age.

I looked it up and found out that in 2009 they CHANGED that law, and children of Canadian citizens who are born outside Canada, and of parents who are NOT working for The Canadian Government, are no longer automatically Canadian citizens.  I don't like that, but it doesn't affect me or any of my close family.  But, I will tell my sister's kids not to visit me when the wife is in late pregnancy!  Shocked

My understanding was that Romney was born of US citizen parents on a Mormon mission to Mexico. As such, he was eligible to be President. Natural born means not a naturalized citizen.

Ted Cruz, a candidate in 2016, was born in Calgary, Alberta. Mother was natural born US citizen, think his father was naturalized US citizen born in Cuba. Again, guess that made Cruz eligible to run.

Amazingly, that same situation is no longer true for children of Canadian parents, despite the fact that Canada takes in more refugees on a per capita basis of their overall population.  They are telling their citizens to not have children while working overseas!  Shocked

That's a shame.

Would Cruz, by virtue of his birth in Calgary, had Canadian citizenship too?  In other words, would he have been a Canadian "anchor baby?"

From The Canadian point of view, he could have become a Canadian citizen, IF, on his birthday at the age of majority in Canada at that time, he would have been on Canadian soil, and had chosen to become Canadian (I don't know when he was born, but I think the age of Majority in Canada changed from 21 to 18 during The 1980s?).  It was 21 when I became 18 and still was when I reached 21.  At that time, if he had done so, he would have had lost his claim to US citizenship.  Later, in 1987, US and Canadian citizens were first allowed to be dual citizens.  So, he could have reclaimed his US citizenship, then.

Yes, I believe Cruz's family came from Cuba.  But, apparently, he was born in Mexico.
