Trump Lashes Out at Paul Ryan Over Birthright Vaporware

As it is, I can't tell if Trump has seized on this birthright-citizenship EO idea because he's knowingly BSing us or because people (i.e. Stephen Miller) are knowingly BSing him behind the scenes. The chaos inherent in making citizenship status subject to executive prerogative would so offend the Supreme Court, I think, that they'd find grounds to strike down Trump's order for that reason alone.

Some Chinese internet users welcomed Trump's announcement, saying that it was unrealistic to pin hopes for the future on another country.

Trump, who has made rhetoric against illegal immigrants a central plank of his presidency, originally spoke out against birthright citizenship when he first started running for president in 2015.

"We're the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States ... with all of those benefits", Trump told "Axios on HBO" in a snippet of an interview that aired Tuesday. "It's still totally fine to give birth in Canada and the baby can get Canadian citizenship", the company said on its microblog account.

Just one week before the election, President Trump said he can change what it means to be born in America.

Trump also said the issue would ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court.

The US will also send about 5,200 active-duty troops to "harden" the border, the Pentagon announced on Monday.

According to the U.S. Constitution, children born in the U.S. and its territories to non-citizens or immigrants parents have the right to become citizens.

He said he hoped Mr Trump wouldn't visit, noting that the president has embraced the politically fraught label of "nationalist". Other locals said they will survive this incident and be stronger because of it, but will never be the same.

Trump insists his immigration moves have nothing to do with politics, even as he rails against the caravans at campaign rallies. It's highly questionable whether an act of Congress could do it, either, though it is conceivable that legislators could change the rules regarding children born in the US of parents who are in the country illegally.

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.

"Once here, the baby born is an American citizen", he said. "The Constitution is quite clear that no one, including the President of the United States, is above the law". Around 30 others do as well.

On Wednesday, Mr Trump took to Twitter to vent his ire at the most powerful congressional Republican.

"The President can not erase the Constitution with an executive order, and the 14th Amendment's citizenship guarantee is clear", said Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project.

Revoking birthright citizenship would have immediate and far-reaching consequences, it said.

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.

Opponents of birthright citizenship have branded babies born in the USA to non-citizens or illegal immigrants "anchor babies" and have criticized what they call "chain migration", a practice which allows those children who receive citizenship by birthright to later sponsor their non-citizen parents for citizenship. We didn't like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action, and obviously as conservatives we believe in the Constitution.
