Trump says he plans to scrap birthright citizenship

Trump says he plans to scrap birthright citizenship

President Donald Trump says the right to citizenship for babies born to non-U.S. citizens on American soil "will be ended one way or the other".

The comments, trailed early Tuesday ahead of the interview being broadcast later this week, came as the administration hardens its already extreme line on immigration ahead of the midterm elections next month.

Many constitutional law experts believe an executive order alone would not change how birthright citizenship is applied in the U.S.

"It would mean the children of illegal aliens, even if born in the United States, would not be bestowed US citizenship upon birth", it said.

Mr Trump said the soon-to-retire House of Representatives speaker should not be opining on "something he knows nothing about". If the President tries to enact gun control legislation like Barack Obama tried to do through executive order that's not really going to fly. Reid said. "Guess again".

The US will also send about 5,200 active-duty troops to "harden" the border, the Pentagon announced on Monday. He said he wants to use an executive order to end the practice by which children born in the US of non-citizen or illegal immigrant parents are immediately a citizen.

Nevertheless, the Quantico star's pre-wedding celebrations were kicked off in New York City with a grand bridal shower. The party was thrown by bridesmaids Mubina Rattonsey and Anjula Acharia , reported Us Weekly .

Graham's bill, he says, will take the same form as Trump's proposed executive order, ending a loophole that allows children born in the United States to non-citizen parents to claim automatic citizenship.

Trump insists his immigration moves have nothing to do with politics, even as he rails against the caravans at campaign rallies.

Sources said Chinese women usually concealed their pregnancy on entering the USA with a visitor visa and stayed in maternity centres, often in Los Angeles or Saipan, where they are cared for by Chinese nannies until the baby is a month old. Imagine Trump's EO being enforced and illegal-immigrant parents ending up deported along with their infant child, who was born on USA soil.

"This policy is a magnet for illegal immigration, out of the mainstream of the developed world, and needs to come to an end", he said.

The judge was the #OneLuckyGuy on Wednesday's Outnumbered panel, and he started by discarding the idea that there's a legal dispute about the 14th Amendment's nature of granting birthright citizenship. Trump wrote in a Twitter post. He called it "outrageous that the president can think he can override constitutional guarantees by issuing an executive order. It is not covered by the 14th Amendment because of the words 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof.' Many legal scholars agree". Levin pointed out that if birthright citizenship is a bureaucratic creation, as the chief of the bureaucracy, President Trump has the right to correct years of extra-constitutional behavior by the executive branch. Six of the Justices ruled that the phrase "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" applied to any person required to obey United States laws, meaning even children of foreigners residing in the country permanently or temporarily.

Utah Republican Mia Love said in a statement she has "always opposed Presidential attempts to change immigration law unilaterally".
