Trump preparing ORDER that will end ‘birthright citizenship’ — but can he do it?

(National SentinelExecutive Action: POTUS Donald Trump may be setting himself up for a huge constitutional battle if reports that he’s preparing to issue an executive order ending birthright citizenship are accurate.

Axios reported exclusively:

President Trump plans to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil, he said yesterday in an exclusive interview for “Axios on HBO,” a new four-part documentary news series debuting on HBO this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.

The order would be one of the most dramatic moves yet by the president as his immigration reform agenda continues to be thwarted by Democrats in Congress and far too many RINOs, though that could all change in less than two weeks of a legitimate red wave sweeps the midterm elections.

Still, there is little doubt the order would be challenged in court. For one, the Fourteenth Amendment states clearly than anyone born on U.S. soil automatically becomes an American citizen. Section 1 says:

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. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

The amendment, passed in the aftermath of the Civil War, was aimed at conveying citizenship rights to newly freed black slaves. But in recent years, the Left has exploited the provision to encourage more illegal immigration from Central America and Mexico.

Pregnant women from south of the border who have their babies on American soil are instantly parents of a U.S. citizen, which makes them extremely difficult to deport.




In the Axios interview, the president said he has vetted the order through his legal counsel and is convinced that he has the authority as president to issue it.

“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” POTUS said.

When told that he will likely face a swift and strong constitutional challenge, POTUS replied, “You can definitely do it with an Act of Congress. But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order.”

He continued: “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 continued. “It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end.”

Axios reported that 30 countries in the Western hemisphere have birthright citizenship, but nevertheless, the president’s right in that our system is being taken advantage of by the Left.

Some have argued that the 14th Amendment “was only intended to provide citizenship to children born in the U.S. to lawful permanent residents — not to unauthorized immigrants or those on temporary visas,” Axios reported.

That’s the argument that POTUS Trump’s administration is likely to make. Whether or not it will be successful remains to be seen.

Then again, it could that all of this is intended to bring the issue before the American people — most are not aware of this constitutional provision or how it’s being abused — so he can set up the real fight, which is repealing that part of the 14th through conventional means via Article V.

6 Comments on Trump preparing ORDER that will end ‘birthright citizenship’ — but can he do it?

  1. US vs Kim. Courts rule children of non US citizens born in the US are US citizens. It should be noted that Kim parents were considered under US jurisdiction despite being Chinese because they are considered legal residents (legal immigrants). In 1886 the amendment was applied to American Indians who wanted to be US citizens. At that time Indian tribes were considered separate nations who make treaties with the US government. Indians were not considered American citizens till 1924 by an Act of Congress. During that application it was determined that children of illegal immigrants as well as American Indians are not American citizens. Will that past determination still be applied to current rules? This is where the SCOTUS will need to rule on.

  2. TRUMP IS NOT CHANGING ANYTHING. 14th NEVER provided citizenship for offspring of foreign invaders.

    Democrats misinterpret EVERYTHING.
    14th Am – applies to citizens and LEGAL residents
    US v. Wong Kim Ark – 14th applies to LEGAL residents
    US v. Plyler – leftwing court forced states to fund k-12 education for children regardless if they are illegals

  3. The author is incorrect in the following assertion: “For one, the Fourteenth Amendment states clearly than anyone born on U.S. soil automatically becomes an American citizen.”

    The Constitution does not say what the author is claiming because the words “subject to the jurisdiction” have a bigger meaning then just geographical place of birth. If that were not the case, then they would be completely redundant and extraneous because the sentence begins with the words: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States”. Children have to be: 1) born on US soil AND 2) subject to the juridiction thereof. They are two separate and different conditions that need to be met. Jurisdiction has a bigger meaning then just geography.

    Read it again: “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.” The “and” makes it two separate conditions which BOTH must be met.

    The Kim vs US is important because it clearly made the distinction that Kim’s parents were LEGAL immigrants which made them “subject to the jurisdiction thereof”. The Supreme Court has never ruled on the issue of children of illegal aliens and it is certainly arguable that they are not subject to our jurisdiction just as the tribal native Americans were not. In the USA we are governed with the consent of the people. Illegal immigrants who ignored our immigration laws made a choice to exclude themselves from the jurisdiction of our government. They did not consent to obey our laws and therefore placed themselves outside its jurisdiction (again meaning a bigger word then just geography).

  4. Just following the courts rulings

    Existing judicial precedent, however, only explicitly clarifies that children of lawful permanent residents in the U.S. qualify for citizenship with no ruling on the children of illegal immigrants or temporary residents. Any executive order by Trump would only be able to legally target these immigrant populations.

  5. There is no other way to get this to the Supreme Court. Trump is, as usual, clever.
    The author of the citizenship clause, Sen. Jacob Howard of Michigan, expressly said: “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.”

  6. Three (3) thing ALL Americans need to thoroughly understand: 1) the 14trh amendment is a FRAUD to begin with, since it was passed illegally 2) the global elitists have used the ILLEGALLY passed 14th amendment to make CORPORATIONS People (can you think of anything more absurd that this? check it out if you don’t believe the facts, and then think about all the illegal and unconstitutional legislation that has been passed because of that 1886 ruling done illegally in a court by a court recorder of all people) , 3) the first line of the illegal 14th amendment says: “all persons born or NATURALIZED in the U.S. and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the U.S. and of the State
    wherein they reside. Does anyone seriously think that an illegal mother living in the U.S. before she has her baby is NATURALIZED? Get real, folks. This is an absurdity to even think that someone who comes into the U.S. illegally is naturalized BEFORE she has her baby. That woman (though she has stepped onto American soil) IS NOT A U.S. CITIZEN… and since her baby has NOT “stepped” onto American soil (since they are still in the womb) is ALSO NOT an American citizen. Therefore, BOTH of them are ILLEGALLY here and ARE NOT citizens of the U.S., and the President has every right to sign an E.O. stating such, and keeping this “INVASION” of uninvited people from crossing the border… ESPECIALLY pregnant women.
    PERIOD!!! IN SPITE OF WHAT THAT ASS*OLE RINO Ryan (who use to be a Demorat himself) and all his RINO followers claim. Can’t get rid of that jerk soon enough… Maybe then, Trump can begin to get so much more accomplished that Ryan has set up roadblocks to halt.
