  • Trump Is Planning to End Birthright Citizenship Through Executive Order

United States President Donald Trump plans to do away with citizenship rights granted to babies of non-citizens and unauthorised immigrants born in the country, Axios reported.

Further, the Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA) of 1952, the basic body of USA immigration law, also says that a "person born in the United States who is subject to the jurisdiction of the United States is a U.S. citizen at birth".

"It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous".

"It's called demagoguery-fanning flames of hatred & false fear, & offering unlawful, ineffectual solutions like an executive order ending birthright citizenship".

When quizzed over whether his new policy would face legal challenges, the billionaire businessman turned politician said: "It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment".

The 14th Amendment states: "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".

Trump, who railed against illegal immigration during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, has seized on the issue in recent weeks as he seeks to bolster fellow Republicans ahead of next week's contests. The language has led to what critics call "birth tourism", in which pregnant women enter the USA for the express objective of giving birth to attain citizenship for their child.

The 14th Amendment guarantees that children born in the United States have a right to U.S. citizenship.

Trump said that his planned changes could be made via an executive order, meaning he wouldn't need to change the constitution in order to introduce changes to the 14th amendment.

"I think in this case the 14th Amendment's pretty clear, and that would involve a very very lengthy constitutional process". "You don't", said Mr Trump.

The president has previously described birthright citizenship as a "magnet" for illegal immigration and the 14th Amendment as "questionable" in this context.

Siskind described the plan, as well as the Trump administration's decision to send thousands of troops to the USA border later this week, as "Hail Mary passes created to thwart disaster" for Republicans in next week's midterms. "Eventually if it gets to the Supreme Court, court has a choice do we accept that, are we going to say no and we're not going to hear that which makes district court the law of the land". "All persons in the USA, thus, except for accredited foreign diplomats in specified instances, are subject to US laws, and, if born in the US, are USA citizens".
