I don't think so because both Cains parents are Mexican.

Which makes him Mexican.

I don't care who "lays claim to Cain".. But being born in the states means your American.

Does that mean Cain is an "anchor baby"??

EDIT

Not that Wiki is "the news and all things right..."...But

Velasquez was born on July 28, 1982 in Salinas, California to Efrain and Isabel Velasquez. Cain's father, Efrain, came to the United States illegally. Efrain met his wife Isabel, married Isabel and gained citizenship to the U.S.,[13] the couple had three children, Adela Garcia, Efrain Jr. Velasquez and Cain Velasquez.[4]
