LoVe this man. Mr. President rocks.
BEST ELECTION EVER!
Also the Supreme Court in the Ark decision.
One word liberals- Kavanah.
See 164. This will not include foreigners, aliens...
You can stomp your feet and get red in the face. That doesnt change reality. People are acquiring citizenship every day thru this law. The numbers are in the millions in terms of the children of illegal aliens and birth tourism.
When you say that there is no law granting birthright citizenship, you are flat out wrong. That will become more apparent as the legal battle is fought out. Trumps EO will be immediately challenged in the courts with some sort of injunction coming from a resistance judge. The initial discussion will deal with the Presidents authority to issue the EO vice Congress. Then it may move as to whether Congress can pass a law ending birthright citizenship or must it be done thru a Constitutional amendment. The battle has just been joined.
The President knows this move will be highly controversial and will wind up in the courts. He clearly wants to force Congress and the courts to resolve the constitional question. It’s a very smart and brave step by the President.
“The numbers are in the millions in terms of the children of illegal aliens and birth tourism.”
No sh!t. That’s why it’s such a travesty.
“When you say that there is no law granting birthright citizenship, you are flat out wrong. “
Yeah, stick your fingers in your ears and keep telling yourself that. Your insistence that the courts will get involved and ‘solve’ things is very peculiar. You do realize they’re the weakest branch. The unelected branch. That they’re not the final arbiters on what is constitutional....
I’m still looking for the passage in the constitution that states “ illegals can squeeze out a kid and get free stuff”
Perfect. May I steal that?
“A child born in the United States, of parents of Chinese descent, who, at the time of his birth, are subjects of the Emperor of China, but have a permanent domicil and residence in the United States, and are there carrying on business, and are not employed in any diplomatic or official capacity under the Emperor of China, becomes at the time of his birth a citizen of the United States, by virtue of the first clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution,
All person 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.”
169 U.S. 649
United States v. Wong Kim Ark (No. 18)
Argued: March 5, 8, 1897
Decided: March 28, 1898
Whether you or I like it or not, millions of anchors rely on this SCOTUS decision and the 14th Amendment. I most certainly don’t like it and it must change, but here we are. Thank God we have a president that will take up this flaw in common sense.
If Obama could extend amnesty through EO, if our immigration law could be circumvented for eight years by EO, why the hell would Trump NOT do this. Get enough real (as in; NOT Roberts) justices on the bench and we CAN MAGA!
Wong got it WRONG. Besides, the courts don’t have the power of naturalization only congress does.
It’s an interesting question to say the least, but I’m not entirely sure. Say a kid was born 10 years ago, what has the federal government done to make his citizenship official? A Social Security number? Citizenship is not required to attend school. Welfare for his mother? I dunno. But it also raises the question of how this would be implemented. If a U.S. birth certificate is not evidence of citizenship, what would be? National ID?
this is one big troll to force demacrat candidates to state there real position on illegal immigration. my guess is that if it goes to the supream court the way it is at the moment they will say that the document does not take a position and the supream court will not take a position allowing trump tp end birth right citizenship at least till congress acts, there is amendment or a the Presidential decree is rescinded by Trump or another President.
Great, informative comment!
Based on the lines I see at our post office, a lot of the anchor babies have passports.
