Trump Aims to End Birthright Citizenship

Trump wants to end birthright citizenship in the U.S.

Ryan told a Kentucky radio station Tuesday that "you cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order", following remarks from the President indicating that Trump believes he can do just that, though many legal scholars disagree.

Trump's potential legal argument for overriding the common interpretation of the 14th Amendment and the INA, both ratified by Congress, amounts to challenging whether or not unauthorized immigrants to the U.S. are "subject to the jurisdiction" of the US.

But what is birthright citizenship? "We didn't like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action", Ryan added. Conservatives have argued the citizenship provision for children applies only to those born to legal USA citizens.

Here's what you need to know about birthright citizenship - and why the president wants to get rid of it. You don't have to do it.

As two caravans of Central American migrants head toward the U.S. -Mexico border, Trump said he is prepared to order up to 10,000 to 15,000 American military troops to assist law enforcement entities to prevent illegal crossings.

The interview is a part of "Axios on HBO", a new four-part documentary series debuting on HBO this Sunday, according to the news site.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., announced he will be introducing legislation "to deal with the issue of birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants" and said it was a "magnet for illegal immigration in modern times". But when the 14th Amendment was added to the Constitution eleven years later, it declared that anyone born in the US was a citizen. "It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous".

Global Baby-Mom and Baby Care Centre, an agent operating in Canada, said it had received more inquiries since Trump's comments were published on Tuesday. "We are in the process. That's what you're talking about".

Jackson is the six straight Cleveland coach to be fired following the team's second game against Pittsburgh. Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Pat Shurmur, Rob Chudzinski and Mike Pettine all met the same demise.

While lawyers disputed that such unilateral action by the president could eliminate a right guaranteed by the USA constitution, some agents reassured potential clients that the policy would at least remain unchanged for a couple of years.

But most scholars on the left and right share the view that it would take a constitutional amendment to deny automatic citizenship to children born in the U.S.to parents who are in the country illegally.

The issue of citizenship was brought into focus by a Supreme Court ruling in 1857 that declared that blacks - even the daughters and sons of freed slaves - were not USA citizens.

"They're playing all of us", said David W. Leopold, an immigration attorney and counsel to the immigration advocacy group America's Voice.

And Mr Ryan was not the only Republican to shy away from changing the constitution. Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

Pursuant to the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), U.S. citizenship is automatically granted to any person born within and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, Wikipedia reports.

"If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with USA citizenship and guarantee a full access to all public and social services this society provides".

The President referenced an immigration executive order signed by his predecessor - the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy he had sought to undo. We all cherish the language of the 14th Amendment. We all cherish the language of the 14th Amendment.
