The Washington Post is reporting that President Donald Trump is considering abolishing the 14th Amendment to the Constitution with an executive order.
From The Washington Post
President Trump is planning to sign an executive order that would seek to end the right to U.S. citizenship for children of noncitizens born on U.S. soil, he said in a television interview taped on Monday.
The move, which many legal experts say runs afoul of the Constitution, would be the most aggressive yet by a president elected to office pledging to take a hard line on immigration, an issue he has revived in advance of next week’s midterm elections.
This is ridiculous, even for Trump. The 14th Amendment says, “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.”
President Trump thinks he can undo a Constitutional Amendment with the stroke of his executive order pen? The man is daft.
