Trump plans order to end birthright citizenship for migrant babies

This was the answer U.S President Donald Trump gave in regard to ending the right to U.S citizenship to children born on US soil to parents who are not citizens.

He said he plans to proceed with the new policy by executive order.

In their crusade against President Trump, globalists trot out alleged experts claiming that Trump's proposal is impossible, unconstitutional, or morally wrong.

The White House leader is said to be ready to sign an executive order terminating "ridiculous" automatic birthrights after insisting "it has to end".

"The 14th Amendment of the Constitution says all people born or naturalized in the United States are citizens". The host pointed out that this is in dispute. "Guess what? You don't", he said in the Axios interview. But now they are saying I can do it just with an executive order.

The concept of birthright citizenship comes from the 14th Amendment. A 2010 study by the right-wing Center for Immigration Studies showed that 30 countries offered birthright citizenship, including Canada, which like the U.S. grants citizenship to children born to people in the country without authorization. "I applaud President Trump's courageous leadership to fix our immigration crisis, which Senator Baldwin has failed to fix and has resulted in free education and healthcare benefits for illegal immigrants".

Caribbean citizens who travel to the United States to have their children there in order to secure United States citizenship for them, may no longer be able to do so in the future.

"I've always supported comprehensive immigration reform - and at the same time - the elimination of birthright citizenship", he wrote.

Constitutional scholars are questioning whether changes could be made without Congress.

Siskind described the plan, as well as the Trump administration's decision to send thousands of troops to the USA border later this week, as "Hail Mary passes created to thwart disaster" for Republicans in next week's midterms. He called it "another incentive, it's another reward" for immigrants to enter the United States illegally and have a child who is automatically a US citizen.

The president said the move was in the process of happening with an executive order but constitutional scholars believe it could be in breach of the 14th amendment to the USA constitution.

Sarah Turberville directs The Constitution Project at the Project on Government Oversight and says Trump is "not a king" and "can't announce what the law is".

"Constitution applies to all people in America, everybody, and that's why America is so great", she said.

Trump, who railed against illegal immigration during the 2016 United States presidential election, has seized on the issue in recent weeks as he seeks to bolster fellow Republicans ahead of next week's contests.

The problem with this interpretation is that it's relatively new, and runs contrary to the way the 14th amendment has been enforced since ratified in the 19th century.
