The president plans to sign an executive order that will eliminate the right to US citizenship for babies born in the United States. If your parents are not citizens or illegal immigrants.
US President Donald Trump has announced that he intends to revoke citizenship by birth.
In an exclusive interview with the ' Axios on HBO ' program, the president has revealed that he plans to sign an executive order that will eliminate the right to US citizenship for babies born in the United States if their parents are not citizens or are illegal immigrants .
This is the latest escalation in the anti-immigrant rhetoric of the Trump Administration just before the legislative elections on November 6, which will determine the control of Congress. The White House announced on Monday that it would send around 5,200 soldiers to the southern border with Mexico for the weekend in order to prevent the entry of the caravan of Central American migrants into the United States.
"It will happen, with an executive order"
The Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution reads: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, are citizens of the United States and of the State in which they reside."
Some media say it is not clear if the president has the power to revoke citizenship by birth because it can be a change of the Constitution .
"They always told me I needed a constitutional amendment , guess what? " Trump said, stating that he can do it by executive order.
