Trump attacks Paul Ryan over birthright citizenship

President Donald Trump speaks during a rally at Southern Illinois Airport in Murphysboro Ill

Trump, in an interview with Axios this week, promised to end, by executive order, birthright citizenship for "anchor babies" (children born in the United States to non-U.S. parents). "Zero chance" he tweeted about the Court's odds to abolish the birthright citizenship.

Mr Trump's plans have triggered a pushback from Republican and Democratic lawmakers, with even Speaker Paul Ryan saying birthright citizenship can't be ended through an executive order.

Paul Rosenzweig, a legal expert and a former deputy assistant secretary for policy at the Department of Homeland Security, said Mr Trump's statements "makes clear that the US President either doesn't understand the law or doesn't care what it says". After I proposed that bad bill, my wife Landra immediately sat me down and said, 'Harry, what are you doing, don't you know that my father is an immigrant?' She set me straight.

"Is it any wonder that two-thirds of the babies born at taxpayer expense at county-run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers?" he added. However, despite having a comfortable majority in the House over the past two years - which the Democrats hope to reverse in next week's midterm elections - Ryan has done little to advance Trump's immigration agenda. But whether the President follows through on his threat or not, the issue joins a string of actions meant to thrust the matter of immigration into the front of voters' minds as they head to polls next week.

Asked about the legality of such an executive order, Trump said, "They're saying I can do it just with an executive order".

Some of Trump's obsequious, knee-jerk supporters have been quick to side with him on birthright citizenship, including advisor Kellyanne Conway (who claimed that the 14th Amendment is being "misinterpreted and misused") and Sen.

He went on to say that the U.S. is "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.It's ridiculous".

Reid was speaking in support of a bill he introduced, the Immigration Stabilization Act of 1993, which would have revoked birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants. "There are many people who are under the misimpression that the 14th Amendment commands it", Kobach said during a Fox News television interview. "We'll go up to anywhere between 10,000 and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Patrol, ICE and everybody else at the border".

The right to citizenship for anyone born in the United States is guaranteed in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.

"Certainly if he can do DACA, we can do this", he said, referring to an executive order.

"This policy is a magnet for illegal immigration, out of the mainstream of the developed world, and needs to come to an end", he said.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the number of military troops deployed to the U.S.

"This has not been a serious debate other than in academic circles", said Napolitano.

"I believe that the president, actually, is attempting to raise a point that has never really been resolved by the Supreme Court".

While it may seem as though there probably aren't too many issues that Reid and Trump agree on, it looks like birthright citizenship may be one of those areas where they do see eye to eye.

There is ZERO chance either Gorsuch or Kavanaugh would find that a phone and a pen can abrogate the 14th Amendment.

He added that the phrase "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" was added to the 14th Amendment to ensure that the child of anyone not subject to American jurisdiction isn't a legal citizen. However, White House lawyers expect to work with the Justice Department to develop a legal justification for the action.

More broadly, Trump's view that US -born children of foreigners live a lifetime of taking "all those benefits" ignores the taxes they pay, the work they do and their other contributions to society. Most are in the Americas.
