Obama Hits Back At Trump's Claims He Can End Birthright Citizenship

Obama Hits Back At Trump's Claims He Can End Birthright Citizenship Special Briefing: The End of Birthright Citizenship? | Need to Know

This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. The argument put forth is that undocumented immigrants are not under the jurisdiction of the United States, and so the children of undocumented immigrants also do not fall within that jurisdiction. The state stepped up enforcement recently, amid mounting anti-immigrant sentiment from the far right.

President Trump would have been right at home on the floor of the Senate in the 1860s alongside such opponents of birthright citizenship.

The executive order that Trump is vowing to sign would end the right to U.S. citizenship for Children born in the United States to non-citizens.

Here's what the 14th Amendment to the Constitution says on that subject: "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". Immigration and citizenship were hallmarks of his campaign speeches. They are typically used to implement the details in running federal agencies, or in furthering congressionally enacted policies.

It's also anxious his members and their kids, said Velasquez, whose union is predominantly Latino.

When former President Barack Obama attempted to give legal status to 4 million undocumented immigrants through the use of his own executive order, he was stopped dead in his tracks by a U.S. district court and then a U.S. Court of Appeals. Most of the walkers are women and children. The interpretation has been blamed for so-called "birth tourism" and chain migration.

Executive orders can not overrule the Constitution; it takes an amendment passed by two-thirds of each house of Congress and ratified by three-fourths of state legislatures to change the Constitution. "It is no coincidence the 1898 case occurred during the height of anti-immigrant frenzy as it has today". What about all those legal residents on an H-1B, H-4, F-1, L-1, J-1 or other visas who are expecting a baby in the U.S., or are trying to have one?

Currently, birthright citizenship dictates that any child born in the United States automatically becomes a U.S. citizen at birth.

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that persons born within the boundaries of the U.S. are protected by the 14th Amendment, even if born from foreign nationals. The decision said, in essence, that African-Americans could not be US citizens.

Donald Trump first announced his intention to prepare an executive order to nullify birthright citizenship last week. The 14th Amendment is in the Constitution of the United States.

Trump's relationship with Ryan is said to be tenuous. The courts may nevertheless rule that the U.S. is obligated to abide by the United Nations refugee convention. But a majority called for a change to the constitution while also claiming to be, 'originalists'.

One user noted that Trump's rhetoric matters because it shapes "how Americans outside of politics understand" the issue. Trump then claimed he could do it with an executive order. Courts reversed the ban several times on grounds of unconstitutional bias. More importantly, we have a birthright to this country and have the power to determine which direction it takes.

"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 for 85 years, with all of those benefits", Trump said.

The question is not merely about the right to citizenship. Many come from China. "Such speech is neither normal nor acceptable, and must stop". Funny, just a few weeks ago, many of these same conservatives during Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings were defending the "originalist" approach to the Constitution, which holds that we should interpret the plain words of the Constitution according to their original public meaning. And all the measures Trump advocates, including his infamous wall, won't change that history, he said.
