Trump attacks Paul Ryan over birthright citizenship

Trump wants to end birthright citizenship in the U.S. Donald Trump reveals plans to end birthright citizenship for babies born to non-citizens

But in backing Trump on whether the president can end birthright citizenship without an amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Kobach broke with some fellow Republicans, including U.S House Speaker Paul Ryan.

"You can not end birthright citizenship with an executive order".

Trump's vow to end the right to citizenship for the children of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on USA soil came in an interview with Axios released Tuesday. "That's what it costs ― billions". "We - House Republicans and this President - are in total agreement on the need to stop illegal immigration, to secure our border and fix our laws". Birthright citizenship is the current law in the United States that grants citizenship to any person who is born in the United States, regardless of the citizenship status of the parents.

Trump doubled down on his commitment to upending the 14th Amendment to the riled-up crowd chanting, "USA!"

"I think the president is saying what I think my community shares, the fact that we do not want abuses", said Salazar, who is running for election in the district that is being vacated by retiring congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla. - and that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016 by 19 percentage points. "We will get rid of all of this".

"It's in the process, it'll happen - with an executive order".

He added that "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". "That is a far cry from what President Trump is trying to do". The issue hasn't been settled by the Supreme Court.

Trump, in response, lashed out at Ryan on Twitter on Halloween, posting, "Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about!".

He also claimed that what he terms "so-called Birthright Citizenship" is "not covered by the 14th Amendment".

Trump has long called for an end to birthright citizenship, as have many conservatives. However, White House lawyers expect to work with the Justice Department to develop a legal justification for the action.

President Trump is arguing that birthright citizenship shouldn't apply to babies of parents in the United States illegally.

"Guess again. If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with USA citizenship and guarantee a full access to all public and social services this society provides".

At Levin's request, Horowitz explained how an executive order issued by Trump ending birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants would not be lawless because the order would be pursuant to law. An 1898 Supreme Court decision held that the US -born son of legal Chinese immigrants was a citizen under the 14th Amendment; a footnote in a 1982 decision suggests there should be no difference for children of foreign-born parents whether they are in the USA legally or illegally. However, despite having a comfortable majority in the House over the past two years - which the Democrats hope to reverse in next week's midterm elections - Ryan has done little to advance Trump's immigration agenda.

He referenced court rulings later that "only children of legal residents are citizens" and that "Congress could clarify legislatively that the children of noncitizens are not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, and thus not citizens under the 14th Amendment".

The country is facing a massive backlog of immigration cases - some 700,000 - and there are more and more families coming across the border from Central America - groups who can not be simply returned over the border.
