Donald Trump is considering ending birthright citizenship before he leaves the White House. At the moment any child born in the United States is automatically granted citizenship even if or whether their parents are American cities.
Many members at The Hill of the Trump Administration are discussing pushing through an executive order on citizenship before Joe Mr. Joe Biden is sworn in on January 20.
Critics say this means illegal immigrants and tourist visitors to the country can give birth and their child will have citizenship.
Some of the constitutional scholars say any executive order Trump signs on the issue would not hold up under the law.
They argued that birthright citizenship is protected under the 14th Amendment.
Although President Donald Trump has previously discussed ending birthright citizenship
claiming that he can indeed enforce the action without an amendment.
However, The president can’t amend the constitution and an executive order trying to end or stop
the right to citizenship of a person born in the United States
would certainly be challenged in court as a violation of the 14th Amendment.
Donald Trump: Does the Constitution Guarantee Birthright Citizenship?
Yes! The 14th Amendment says All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject
to the jurisdiction are therefore citizens of the United States and also of the State wherein they reside.
A legal challenge to any executive order signed by the president would almost certainly be lodged if he did attempt to make changes.
Donald Trump is also considering signing off other measures to do with visa reform and China before he leaves office next year.
Wha is Birthright Citizenship
Citizenship of people born in the United States has been controlled by its Citizenship since the Adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment back in 1868.
Which states that all persons born or naturalized in the United States, are citizens of the United State
and of the State wherein they reside.
However, all babies born in the United States are automatically granted American citizenship,
regardless of the legal status of their parents.
Notwithstanding, there is nothing in the law that makes it illegal for pregnant women to enter the United States.
Children born in Australia, New Zealand and all other countries across Europe do not automatically get citizenship.
Although citizenship is not a common practice. less than 40 countries offer birthright citizenship
and Canada is the only country which does
But Mr. Joe Biden has now vowed to end federal executions and incentivize states to also stop capital punishment.
The Trump administration appears to be in a mad dash to push through bold initiatives before Mr. Biden is sworn in as the nation’s 46th President.
