Trump Lashes Out at Paul Ryan Over Birthright Vaporware

Trump wants to end birthright citizenship in the U.S. Donald Trump reveals plans to end birthright citizenship for babies born to non-citizens

The president's opposition to the constitutional provision centers specifically on the fact that children born in the USA to immigrant parents - whether they are in the country legally or not - are automatically citizens.

There has not been a challenge to this interpretation in 120 years. Harry Reid, D-Nev., speaking out against birthright citizenship. Trump has said the caravan needs to turn around.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC was quick to express his support for Mr Trump's plan.

Other Republicans were critical.

Ryan, who is retiring from Congress after this term, said Tuesday that Trump "obviously" could not end birthright citizenship through executive action, and legal scholars are divided on whether even Congress can do it by legislation. "In 2006, when the president said he needed help to secure the border, Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen didn't wait to be asked". "You can do it through an executive order".

Speaking to reporters before leaving the White House for a campaign rally in Florida, Trump compared his plan to act by executive order to President Barack Obama's much-maligned decision to use executive action to provide protections from prosecution and a path to work status for some people brought to the US illegally as children.

In essence, if Mr Trump signs such an order, and a lawsuit by a State is filed, Mr Horowitz said: "judges faithful to their oaths will have no choice but to agree with him".




Opinion polls show Democrats have a chance at achieving the net gain of 23 seats they need to win a majority in the House but they have a longer shot at the Senate, where they need a gain of two seats.

Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, is Trump's biggest political ally in the state and has advised the White House on homeland security issues. At the same time, the President has derided his predecessor Barack Obama for taking executive actions to block some young undocumented immigrants from deportation, a step Trump said was a presidential overstep. "It is not covered by the 14th Amendment because of the words 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof'". "It's still totally fine to give birth in Canada and the baby can get Canadian citizenship", the company said on its microblog account.

Most legal scholars say the jurisdiction language denies citizenship only to those who are not bound by US law, such as the children of foreign diplomats. "He's getting the executive branch under control and saying, 'This is what the 14th Amendment means, '" Levin said. Responding to critics on Wednesday, he said that birthright citizenship will be abolished "one way or another".

"You know, as a conservative, I'm a believer in following the plain text of the Constitution, and I think in this case the 14th Amendment is pretty clear, and that would involve a very, very lengthy constitutional process", the top Republican in the House told Kentucky's WVLK-AM radio. Six of the Justices ruled that the phrase "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" applied to any person required to obey USA laws, meaning even children of foreigners residing in the country permanently or temporarily.

The Supreme Court has not ruled specifically on the issue of whether illegal immigrants can be denied birthright citizenship.

In a statement on October 31, Reid said he "made a mistake" by proposing a bill that would alter birthright citizenship, claiming that his wife confronted him shortly after and changed his mind.

"We will keep the criminals, the drug dealers, we will keep them all out of our country", he said.
