Trump vows to terminate birthright citizenship

Trump wants to end birthright citizenship in the U.S.

"Illegal aliens and temporary visitors are not citizens of the United States by birth here don't have to be under 14th Amendment", said Kovach.

In fact, House Speaker Paul Ryan and scholars widely pan the idea that Trump could unilaterally change the rules on who is a citizen.

Napolitano said that the debate over birthright citizenship isn't serious, disagreeing with Jonathan Turley's argument.

The majority opinion in 1873 said: "The phrase, "subject to its jurisdiction" was meant to exclude from its operation children of ministers, consuls, and citizens or subjects of foreign States born within the United States".

Napolitano, though, said the only way that birthright citizenship can be altered is through a Constitutional amendment. "We didn't like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action", Ryan added. But the mainstream opinion from both right and left is that it is more likely that a constitutional amendment, rather than federal legislation or an executive order, would be needed to change the birthright conferred on people born here.

Trump contends the wording of the 14th Amendment, which grants the citizenship, gives him the authority.

Trump has discussed the issue before and reinjected it into the political conversation just days before the 2018 midterms as he looks to energize his base. Birthright citizenship is the "legal right to citizenship of all children born in a country's territory, regardless of parentage".

Meanwhile, he said he also agrees that Trump could end birthright citizenship with an executive order, and that it is mistaken to think that the 14th Amendment "commands" that all babies born in the United States are granted citizenship.

Amazon Reports More Profit In Q3, But Revenue Lag Hurts Stock
The weaker than expected third quarter results and guidance prompted analysts to cut fourth quarter revenue estimates. Amazon's net income in Q3 came to $2.9 billion, or $5.75 per diluted share, on revenue of $56.57 billion.


The president also tweeted about Democrat Harry Reid, who in 1993 called for the end of the birthright policy.

"The president wants to see a total reform take place".

According to a 2015 Pew Research Centre poll, 60% of Americans were against ending birthright citizenship.

John Eastman, a constitutional scholar at Chapman University's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, told Axios that the line "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" originally referred to people fully and politically allied with the United States - green-card holders and citizens. In simple terms, this means that, even if children are born to immigrants, they are still considered US citizens if they are born "within and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States".

Ryan and Mr. Trump have clashed in the past, particularly during the 2016 presidential election. "Oh, yeah? Everybody born here is a citizen, so says the Constitution".

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi predicted on Tuesday night that Democrats will take back the House, saying during an interview with late-night host Stephen Colbert, "We will win".

A child born to a non-German citizen can be a citizen from birth only if a parent has been in the country for eight years with the legal status of "unlimited residency".
