US President Donald Trump suggests he will end birthright citizenship soon: Axios

President Donald Trump CRACKDOWN President Trump is reportedly planning to axe birthright citizenship

The birthright citizenship is once again in debate after US President Donald Trump, in an interview to "Axios on HBO", said that he wants to end the constitutional right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorised immigrants born in the United States.

"I plan to introduce legislation along the same lines as the proposed executive order from President", the South Carolina Republican said in a statement.

Anyone born in the United States automatically has the right to USA citizenship, as per the 14th Amendment, which states: "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".

"It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous".

President Trump's idea to modify the 14th amendment, denying citizenship to children of undocumented migrants, won't work, said Attorney Elliott Kanter.

The 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution passed in 1868, giving citizenship to newly freed slaves after the Civil War. "Guess what? You don't", Trump said. "A foreign national living in the United States is "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" because he is legally required to obey USA law".

He added: "Obviously as conservatives we believe in the Constitution".

"When they are captured, we don't let them out", Trump said.

Donald Trump's unconventional diplomacy is pushing China and Japan closer together
Abe realises that Japan's future economic prosperity requires increased trade with China, now Japan's largest trading partner. Some other users urged caution during Abe's visit, accusing an "ambitious" Japan of being a two-faced neighbor.

China, Russia listening to Trump's cell phone calls
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the New York Times report was "fake news". Trump regularly speaks in hopes of using them to influence the president", the Times reported.

The 14th Amendment guarantees that right for all children born in the US.

"I just can't even imagine what our founders would be thinking to see a president to take an oath of office to protect and defend the constitution of the United States, and then abuse that", Pelosi said. "It'll happen.with an executive order".

The problem with this interpretation is that it's relatively new, and runs contrary to the way the 14th amendment has been enforced since ratified in the 19th century.

On Tuesday morning, Rep. Justin Amash, a Michigan Republican who frequently vocalizes his differences with the president, emphasized that ending birthright citizenship would require a constitutional amendment.

Siskind described the plan, as well as the Trump administration's decision to send thousands of troops to the United States border later this week, as "Hail Mary passes created to thwart disaster" for Republicans in next week's midterms.

"I would like to see us get back to rule of law", Scalise said, before referring to the migrants and asylum seekers traveling through Mexico on the way to the USA border.

Despite Trump's assertion, "the U.S.is not the only nation to have birthright citizenship, but the policy is rare outside of the Americas", noted Fox News.
