Trump Wavers on Ending Birthright Citizenship With Executive Order

"You can not end birthright citizenship with an executive order", Ryan, the top Republican in Congress, said in an interview with radio station WVLK, the Washington Post reported. "So-called Birthright Citizenship, which costs our Country billions of dollars and is very unfair to our citizens, will be ended one way or the other", he wrote on Wednesday. But according to many constitutional scholars, Trump doesn't have that right-as it would be a blatant violation of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

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. "We'll go up to anywhere between 10,000 and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Patrol, ICE and everybody else at the border". And the President has warned of an "invasion" of undocumented immigrants if the border isn't sealed with a wall. Harry Reid, D-Nev., speaking out against birthright citizenship.

However, the text of the amendment's opening Citizenship Cause is this: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside". A 2010 study from the Center for Immigration Studies, a group that supports immigration restrictions, showed that 30 countries offered birthright citizenship. "And it has to end", he continued. "We will end finally birthright citizenship".

Trump's citizenship proposal would inevitably spark a long-shot legal battle over whether the president can alter the long-accepted understanding that the 14th Amendment grants citizenship to any child born on US soil, regardless of his parents' immigration status.

"For 130 years there's an uninterrupted stream of case law, including cases written by the Wong Kim Ark justice, Horace Gray, saying that if you come here without consent and you do not have legal status, it is, in the most literal and physical sense, as if you are standing outside of our boundaries in terms of access to the courts, in terms of rights, in terms of everything", Horowitz said. "This is again, where a President's words matter".

In the run-up to the November 6 congressional elections, Trump has seized on a caravan of migrants from Central America who are trekking through Mexico toward the United States, calling the migrants a threat.

Vice President Mike Pence said the plan may not be unconstitutional, telling Politico in an interview that while " we all cherish" the 14th amendment, the U.S. Supreme Court has not weighed in on the issue entirely. "Guess what? You don't", he said, adding that he has run it by his counsel. A research fellow with a USA immigration think tank said his real objective was to "to force Congress' hand to act".

"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.
