Trump Plans Big Change to Citizenship Rules

His plan to stop birthright citizenship by executive order was quickly criticized by House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The interviewer said that was disputed, indicating it might breach the 14th amendment of the U.S. constitution.

It means that any person born on American soil is also considered a citizen of the nation. But Anton says the court's ruling applied only to children of USA residents who are in the country legally.

The president will do this by signing an executive order, he said in a TV interview.

Speaking on United States television in an exclusive interview for news documentary series Axios on HBO, the President is said to be launching a crackdown on "anchor babies" and "chain migration". The children, as citizens, can then sponsor their families to become United States citizens as well once they turn 21.

Reed leads after opening round of World Golf Championships in Shanghai
The birdie was enough to see Finau regain the lead and his length off the tee allowed him to take advantage of the par five last. Looking at that, I knew just he's going to splash it out. "I was happy just to make a few birdies coming down the stretch".

"But the Supreme Court of the United States has never ruled on whether or not the language of the 14th amendment, subject to the jurisdiction thereof, applies specifically to people who are in the country illegally", Pence said. Graham said his bill will be "along the sames lines" as Trump's proposed executive order. She says she expects calls from clients as news of Trump's proposal spreads.

Here's what the 14th amendment says on the matter: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside".

Even Vice President Mike Pence, on the campaign trail in 2016, declared birthright citizenship was "settled law".

The full Axios interview will air on Sunday.

The court first interpreted the clause in 1872, shortly after the amendment's passage, said Cevallos, and concluded that itwas made to "establish the citizenship of" African-Americans while excluding the children of "ministers, consuls, and citizens or subjects of foreign states born within the United States". There is also legislation in Congress sponsored by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) that would end birthright citizenship.

Red Dead Redemption 2 makes record-breaking $750 million in three days
The game had more than $ 725 million of retail sales worldwide during its first three days, blowing past analysts' expectations. The publisher no doubt has high aspirations for Red Dead Online , but as an online experience it's still an unproven entity.

The president's top advisers haven't publicly gone as far as the president's claim that birthright citizenship is not covered by the 14th Amendment. I think the President is looking at executive action.

"It's very scary, unthinkable, to hear that news but I will hope that the president will consider this and not go forward with this", said Abel, who is now a permanent resident.

"Yeah, I have", Mr Trump confirmed. As for when it might happen, Trump said, "It's in the process".

Democrats and other critics have decried the president's rhetoric as inflammatory, urging Trump to tone down his language and calling on the electorate to use next week's vote as a way to reject such policies.
