The law is clear: one has to be born within US territory to be eligible for POTUS. Anyway I doubt Cruz would win if he ran so its a moot point.
He'll never be president, so it doesn't matter.
Travelling in the modern world isn't like travelling in the 1780s. Today, one could be born during a weeklong trip and never be out of the country again. I think that if one is born a citizen, that should be enough. The intention of ensuring that the president is indicative of American culture and values and doesn't have allegiance to another country is valid, but requiring someone to physically be born in the United States (does that include territories?) is not necessary to achieve that intent. I see no reason to bar Cruz from running. I see even less reason to take him seriously as a candidate, however, and every reason not to vote for him.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
