(Daily Mail) Donald Trump plans to revoke the automatic citizenship rights of children born in the U.S. to illegal immigrants and other non-citizens.

In an interview with Axios, the president said he wants to sign an executive order ending the practice of giving citizenship to those who conservatives have long termed 'anchor babies.'


Trump, who has long been critical of the practice, said: '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. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And it has to end.'


The 14th Amendment of the Constitution, written in 1868, states: '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.'


Trump insists he can change the way the Amendment is interpreted by the federal government, without amending the Constitution itself, and can do it through an executive order.

he can and will. often times, amerika will test ideas out 1st in europe. in fact, europe was testing out far right, xenophobic politics before chrump was elected. they saw the effects of it, and how it was received, then america took that route. europe began revoking birth right citizenship decades ago, and people, for the most part, accepted it. you can also tell by amerika's visa policies, especially after 9.11, its xenophobic attitude. taking away birth right citizenship will only be a manifestation of the xenophobia. the massive amounts of deportations hapening in recent years also reflects the xenophobic atttitudes of the american oligarchy. it would make sense, naturally, for them to take away birth right citizenship as a next step. in fact, american elites may decide to go even further, to take away citizenship of people who they deem are persona non grata. in fact, most people assume that canada is multicultural, and liberal, but canada actually did this, and took away canadian citizenship of many canadians, although primarily targeting chinese canadians
