When asked in a tweet, "Then, you're just in favor of not giving children a legal identity, rights & protections that a citizenship grants, children, to discourage parents to travel all the way to the USA?" "I can do it just with an executive order", Trump told AXIOS. It would be absurd to apply the order to a past date.
As we saw at the beginning of this column, American woman giving birth outside the U.S. were never assumed to be giving birth to citizens of whatever country they were living in at the time.
Imagine schools and campuses who gave out admissions and scholarships trying to revoke their decisions. Or, maybe the children will have a new application, new date; further alienating them in the morass of the broken immigration system.
In an era of Donald Trump, Jair Bolsonaro, and Viktor Orban, affirming the significance of constitutional birthright citizenship and equal protection seems as important as ever.
They simply changed their laws of citizenship. Many come from China.We're not talking just South America, Latin America. "And it has to end".
Meanwhile, US lawmakers continued to criticise Trump for his view on birthright citizenship. The Supreme Court ruled in his favor, declaring that "citizenship by birth is established by the mere fact of birth under the circumstances defined in the Constitution".
There is an entire business overseas right now of anchor baby tourism, primarily attracting expectant Russians to Miami and Chinese to the West Coast.
Trump is also right to condemn illegal immigrants who break laws by crossing the border without proper documents, and then raise families here.
President Trump would have been right at home on the floor of the Senate in the 1860s alongside such opponents of birthright citizenship.
China won’t close its door to any country: Xi Jinping
Some of Xi's comments appeared to be directed toward the United States and its leader, President Donald Trump. Both are seen as eyeing new ways into China.
About 55% of those children live with one undocumented parent or two undocumented parents.
Meant to prohibit the creation of a permanent class of resident aliens with no devotion to the USA or rights of citizenship, the birthright-citizenship provision of the amendment reads: "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".
Rather, they primarily fear - quite sensibly - that immediately granting citizenship to the children of people who came here illegally serves as a magnet, or at least a reward, for crossing our borders without authorization.
Recent research by NumbersUSA reveals that should current legal immigration levels continue - where the USA admits more than 1.5 million foreign nationals every year - the country's population will double what it was in 1970. You're a dictator who we hate and who's against us. There is already discontent from public figures about Trump's legality of his executive order.
However, "t$3 o be "subject to the jurisdiction" of the U.S.is simply to be subject to the authority of the USA government ..." Most notable is Franklin D. Roosevelt, signing over 3,700 executive orders in his 12 years in office, but other recent presidents have averaged out to between 100 to 400 signings. If you are born in the United States, you are a citizen and entitled to all the privileges and immunities that entails and the equal protection of the laws.
Clearly, comprehensive immigration reform is needed, as are more secure borders and more immigration courts to process those seeking asylum and to deport those without legitimate claims. You get nothing more than they do.
January 29, 2019 (BREITBART) - President Trump, responding to media criticism of recent executive orders, issued a memorandum revising the First Amendment to abolish all media, allowing only: Fox News, Breitbart, Daily Caller, Alex Jones, Gab and QAnon.
Petitioners would be forced to add the names of their US-born children too, on all extension of visa or change in status applications, which will bring in millions of dollars of extra revenue in additional paperwork.
