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

Donald Trump reveals plans to end birthright citizenship for babies born to non-citizens

"I'd rather do it through Congress because that's permanent, but we can certainly do it through - I really (believe) we can do it through executive order", he added, noting he had discussed the issue with legal scholars. "Guess what? You don't", a gleeful Trump told Axios' Jonathan Swan when asked about his desire to end the practice of birthright citizenship, which is based on a longstanding interpretation of the 14 amendment's classification of all persons born or naturalized in the United States "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" as citizens.

"Guess again. 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". But whether the President follows through on his threat or not, the issue joins a string of actions meant to thrust the matter of immigration into the front of voters' minds as they head to polls next week. In a Tuesday appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said the Axios interview didn't surprise her. But Republicans such as Trump say it creates an incentive for people to come to the country illegally to have children. Six of the Justices ruled that the phrase "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" applied to any person required to obey U.S. laws, meaning even children of foreigners residing in the country permanently or temporarily.

The president also tweeted about Democrat Harry Reid, who in 1993 called for the end of the birthright policy.

President Donald Trump seems to have had enough with his Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, saying that the establishment Republican "knows nothing" about birthright citizenship and vowing a new GOP majority would do a better job.

The 14th Amendment was originally written to protect the rights of slaves in South after the Civil War.

The step would immediately be challenged in court. "That's the case with President Trump's proposal to end "birthright citizenship" through an executive order", George Conway wrote.

A game is being played to protect someone involved in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, the Turkish president has claimed. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday the probe into Khashoggi's killing must be completed quickly.

Whether or not birthright citizenship is within the president's power to change is a subject of debate among constitutional scholars. Trump has often used the term himself. "This is again, where a President's words matter".

The White House did not provide additional details of the planned executive order on Tuesday morning. "But the 14th amendment of the constitution is very clear". And it's highly questionable whether an act of Congress could do it, either.

He tweeted: "I hate to break the news to President Trump, but the Supreme Court isn't going to let him rewrite immigration law by executive fiat, nor should they".
