President Trump said he was preparing an executive order to end citizenship in the United States, his most recent attention-grabbing maneuver a few days before the congressional election, during which he had attempted to activate his base by opposing immigrants and immigration  "We are the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is a United States citizen for 85 years with all these benefits," said Triumph Axios during an interview that led to the Part was released on Tuesday. It's ridiculous, it's ridiculous, and it has to stop. "
Indeed, dozens of other countries, including Canada, Mexico, and many others in the Western Hemisphere, grant automatic citizenship, according to a study by the Center for Immigration, an organization This supports the restriction of immigration and its work, which the Trump consultants often cite.
It is also unknown how serious Mr. Trump is to do the act. Over the past few days, he has tried to appeal to voters with the approach to the midterm elections that threaten Congressional Republican scrutiny by making other dramatic claims that seem to have no chance of materializing. English: www.germnews.com. In order to realize the idea he had on Tuesday, Trump would have to find a way to find the 14th Amendment, which states: "All persons who have served in the United States born or naturalized and subject to jurisdiction are United States citizens and the state in which they reside. "
The change means that any child born in the United States is considered a citizen. Amendments to the Constitution can not be overridden by presidential action and can only be achieved by overwhelming majorities in Congress or in the States by a two-thirds majority of the two chambers of Congress or by a constitutional convention that accounts for two-thirds of
But some conservatives have long argues that the 14th Amendment should apply only to citizens and legal permanent residents, not to immigrants present in the country without authorization. In an opinion article in the Washington Post earlier this year, Michael Anton, a former spokesman for the National Security Council of Trump, said citizenship of citizenship was based on a misunderstanding of the amendment and a Supreme Court ruling of 1898
"The notion The mere fact that mere birth within the geographical boundaries of the United States automatically gives American citizenship is an absurdity – historical, constitutional, philosophical and practical, "wrote Anton in July. "An executive order could tell federal authorities that the children of non-citizens are not citizens."
Mr. Trump told Axios that while he initially believed that he needed a constitutional amendment or action by Congress to make the change, the White House office advised him otherwise.
"Now they say I can only do it with an executive order" Mr. Trump said.
His discussion of the idea comes after the government announced it would stream more than 5,000 active-duty troops to the southern border, part of an executive election electoral season Mr. Trump is taking steps to encourage his anti-immigrant base.
It also follows measures by the Trump administration to prevent legal immigrants from using public benefits through a new federal rule that would deny people green card status Social security network services such as food aid and Medicaid
A Supreme Court ruling By 1898, Wong Kim Ark, who was born in San Francisco to Chinese-born parents resident in the United States, was a citizen of his birth on American soil. Mr. Anton argued in The Post that, because his parents lived legally, the verdict should not be read as confirmation of the status of children of undocumented immigrants.
But immigration advocates argue that the scrapping of the concept of citizenship would go away from birth with a vital principle, and would be counterproductive to the declared goals of those who, like Mr Trump, routinely act against illegal immigration. According to a study by the Migration Policy Institute, an impartial group, the unauthorized population in the United States would reach 24 million by 2050 if citizenship were denied to any child with at least one unauthorized parent – more than twice as many as now.
