Trump Mulling with Ending Birthright Citizenship Of..

You don't have to do it. But now they are saying I can do it just with an executive order.

The full Axios interview will air on Sunday.

What Trump is doing is forcing a court battle, Jacob said. "It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous".

Classic example: Pittsburgh officials urged Donald Trump to delay a visit to Pittsburgh so that funeral could proceed for victims of the synagogue slaughter, a process that will put heavy demands on local police. He's going anyway.

"With an executive order", the President interjected, confirming he had thought about doing it. "That's what you're talking about".

Trump tells "Axios on HBO" he wants to end birthright citizenship for babies born to non-citizens and immigrants not authorized to be in the United States.

To change the constitution requires a two-third majority in Congress, but Trump insisted that he could do it with an executive order.

He said he plans to proceed with the new policy by executive order.

Khashoggi incident ‘very painful, not justifiable’: Saudi crown prince
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman speaks during the Future Investment Initiative Forum in Riyadh , Saudi Arabia Oct 24, 2018. But Trump suggested that responsibility lay higher up: "Well, the prince is running things over there more so at this stage".

Donald Trump has has insisted he will move to end the right to American citizenship for the children of non-citizens born in the United States, a pledge he made frequently throughout the 2016 campaign and one often dismissed as legally unfeasible by scholars. But they become citizens when they turn 18, as long as they have lived in the country for five years since age 11. "They were not focused on questions of legal or illegal immigration, they were focused on African-American citizenship".

"For a president to say all of the sudden I'm going to change it, it's a broad step, I think a very risky step, it's too much power", said Kanter. Recently, Trump has repeatedly called himself a "nationalist", which many believe is shorthand for "white nationalist".

Birthright citizenship is the entitlement for those born in the United States of America to have automatic citizenship.

Mr Trump also said it was "ridiculous" that you get citizenship if you are born in the United States and not a citizen.

The 14th Amendment to the US Constitution was written to give citizenship to the children of former slaves.

If Trump issues an executive order to end birthright citizenship "there will be lawsuits from all over the country over equal protection", Yegani added. We're not catching, we're not releasing ... We all cherish the language of the 14 Amendment. The right was written into the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution in 1868 after the Supreme Court had ruled that people of African descent, whether enslaved or free, could not be American citizens. I think the President is looking at executive action. "At the very least it would have to be statutory through Congress", he said.

Another Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi slammed Mr. Trump for his move.
