Trump says he plans to end birthright citizenship via executive order
President Donald Trump has promise in a new interview with Axois to unilaterally end birthright citizenship.
Trump told Axios 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, with all of those benefits” Trump called birthright citizenship “ridiculous” and said that “it has to end.”
Under current policy, anyone born in the U.S regardless of whether they are delivered by a non-citizen or unauthorized immigrant is considered a citizen. The interpretation has been blamed for so-called ‘birth tourism’ and chain migration.
