Babies born in the US may not be given citizenship anymore – Donald Trump

by Staff writer

President Donald Trump has said he plans to sign an executive order that would end the right to citizenship for the children of non-American citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on US soil.

“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in, has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits,” Trump said in a recent interview.

“It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end,” he continued.

Several other countries, including Canada, have a policy of birthright citizenship, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for reducing immigration.

Speaking on whether he has the authority to strip citizenship of those born in the US with an executive order, Trump said: “It was always told to me that you needed a Constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t.”

He added: “You can definitely do it with an act of Congress. But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order.”

The President didn’t provide further details of his plan, but said that “it’s in the process. It’ll happen.”
