Top Democrat in 1993: ‘No Sane Country’ Would Provide Birthright Citizenship

President Trump vows to end birthright citizenship through an executive order.

Trump's plans to end the policy further escalates his administration's efforts to promote immigration as a major campaign issue before the November 6 midterm elections. After I proposed that bad bill, my wife Landra immediately sat me down and said, 'Harry, what are you doing, don't you know that my father is an immigrant?' She set me straight. "But now they are saying, I can do it just with an executive order", Mr. Trump told Axios in an interview. When Trumpists call out their opponents for doing something objectionable or unconstitutional (as Trump has frequently described DACA), they're not saying that Americans shouldn't behave this way. Two, it was to stop the southern states from the beginnings of Jim Crow: the slaves are free, but we're still are not going to treat them as people, we're not going to treat them as citizens! An end to the Constitution's guarantee of birthright citizenship.

"It's in the process, it'll happen - with an executive order". "There are folks who say that you know, to be an American is to embrace an idea".

Legal experts have debated for years how to interpret the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment, but the consensus is one-sided: Most agree that it in fact grants citizenship to those born on USA soil. "I think it's very hard to predict the future, but I will say that to date there has been pretty strong clear consensus that the birthright citizenship clause really clearly establishes that if you're born in the United States, you're a citizen in the United States".

The troop numbers have been changing at a dizzying pace, with Trump drawing a hard line on immigration in the lead-up to the midterm elections.

Obama: Character of U.S. ‘is on the ballot’
Obama used the subject of Hillary Clinton's private email server to accuse Republicans of trying to "scare the heck out of people before every election".

For example, the parents who entered the U.S. illegally would have to return to their native country for 10 years before they can return and be legalized. The result of that interpretation is that each year an estimated 300,000 to 350,000 new American citizens are birthed by illegal aliens.

On Wednesday, Mr Trump took to Twitter to vent his ire at the most powerful congressional Republican. "But the Supreme Court of the United States has never ruled on whether or not - whether the language of the 14th Amendment, 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof, ' applies specifically to the people who are in the country illegally", he said at a Politico event. Others reported growing interest in services in Canada, which also grants birthright citizenship.

"You can not end birthright citizenship with an Executive Order", Ryan said.

Old footage of former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) shows that some of the strong voices in the Democratic Party agree with President Donald Trump on his proposal to abolish birthright citizenship. It is not covered by the 14th Amendment because of the words "subject to the jurisdiction thereof". We have no way of tracking that, so that is our direct message to the families of Central America: Do not send your children to the borders. "We didn't like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action", Ryan added.
