Donald Trump has one trick up his sleeve to stop any more migrant caravans
There are many magnets that attract illegal aliens to the United States.
Donald Trump is about to end one of them.
And with one stroke of his pen Trump is about to end the worst way the migrant caravan can stay in America.
Donald Trump campaigned on ending birthright citizenship for illegal aliens.
The current reading of the 14th amendment grants automatic citizenship to the children of illegal aliens if they are born in America.
Trump realized this is absurd.
He announced in an interview with Axios that he would sign an executive order ending birthright citizenship for illegal aliens.
President Donald Trump said Monday that he is planning to sign an executive order that would end the practice of bestowing U.S. citizenship onto babies born in the U.S. to non-citizen parents, a move almost certain to draw legal challenges on constitutional grounds.
In an interview with Axios on Monday, Trump said that he had discussed the idea with the White House counsel and that “it’s in the process, it will happen, with an executive order.”
Such an order would seek to override the 14th Amendment, which reads in part: “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.”
Some immigration hardliners have argued that the 14th Amendment is not applicable to those not in the U.S. legally or here only on a temporary visa. Trump, who has long promised to end birthright citizenship, told Axios that instead of amending the Constitution, he has been advised that his administration could end the practice through executive order.
This will surely be tested in court.
But Trump doesn’t care.
He campaigned on cracking down on illegal immigration and he is doing everything in his power to follow through.
