President Donald Trump is sick and tired of invaders coming from third-world sh-tholes, plopping out kids, and destroying the demographic integrity of America by doing so. That is why he is preparing to sign an executive order banning birthright citizenship.
“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States … with all of those benefits,” Trump said to “Axios on HBO.” “It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end.”
“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” Trump 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,” he said.
Former national security advisor Michael Anton, who served in the Trump administration for a brief period, wrote an op/ed in the Washington Post explaining why Trump’s push to end birthright citizenship via executive order is fully constitutional and a prudent reform to fix our broken immigration system.
An executive order could specify to federal agencies that the children of noncitizens are not citizens. Such an order would, of course, immediately be challenged in the courts. But officers in all three branches of government — the president no less than judges — take similar oaths to defend the Constitution. Why shouldn’t the president act to defend the clear meaning of the 14th Amendment?
Judges faithful to their oaths will have no choice but to agree with him. Birthright citizenship was a mistake whose time has gone.
Trump’s call for ending birthright citizenship follows many anti-establishment voices in the party fold who have raised awareness of this problem for decades.
Even if Trump is ultimately rebuked by the corrupt courts, the fact that he is willing to use the tools at his disposal to fight for America’s future is refreshing. He does not care about the establishment doctrine, only what is best for Americans.
