Birthright citizenship: Trump lashes out at Paul Ryan

Adjust Comment Print

One week before the United States midterm elections, President Donald Trump took another hawkish line on immigration by appealing to his supporters in promising an executive order that would end birthright citizenship which grants anyone born on American soil a USA citizenship. "At its core, birthright citizenship is what our 14th Amendment is all about".

On Monday, Axios leaked part of an interview with Trump, the full recording of which will air on HBO Sunday, in which he indicated his intention to do away with birthright citizenship in the United States by way of executive order.

A longtime proponent of comprehensive immigration reform, Graham would likely want to tie any effort to end birthright citizenship to major changes in immigration policy that could benefit illegal immigrants already living in-country, perhaps with a proposed "path to citizenship", or a long-term partial amnesty agreement.

"I believe you can have a simple vote in Congress", Trump told reporters as he left the White House.

"I've always supported comprehensive immigration reform - and at the same time - the elimination of birthright citizenship", Graham added. "We - House Republicans and this President - are in total agreement on the need to stop illegal immigration, to secure our border and fix our laws". "Guess what? You don't", Mr Trump said. "That is a far cry from what President Trump is trying to do".

"I think the president is saying what I think my community shares, the fact that we do not want abuses", said Salazar, who is running for election in the district that is being vacated by retiring congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla. - and that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016 by 19 percentage points.

Ryan shot down Trump's idea to eliminate birthright citizenship through an executive order. "Birthright citizenship is a constitutional right, no less for the children of undocumented persons than for descendants of passengers of the Mayflower".

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi predicted on Tuesday night that Democrats will take back the House, saying during an interview with late-night host Stephen Colbert, "We will win".

The right to citizenship for anyone born in the United States is guaranteed in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.

The words of a top Democrat proclaiming that "no sane country" would provide birthright citizenship to the children of non-residents was promoted by President Donald Trump on October 31 as he argued that the Supreme Court will ultimately decide the issue. "And through chain migration and other things, many other people come in through the baby, it's ridiculous", Donald Trump said.

Napolitano said that the debate over birthright citizenship isn't serious, disagreeing with Jonathan Turley's argument. The issue hasn't been settled by the Supreme Court. It is not covered by the 14th Amendment because of the words 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof.

He added that the phrase "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" was added to the 14th Amendment to ensure that the child of anyone not subject to American jurisdiction isn't a legal citizen.

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 country is facing a massive backlog of immigration cases - some 700,000 - and there are more and more families coming across the border from Central America - groups who can not be simply returned over the border.
