President Trump and White House personnel are evaluating the possibility of signing an executive order to terminate birthright citizenship in the United States before his first term ends, the Hill reported on Friday. The White House has evaluated legal options to do away with the longstanding policy which hands out American citizenship to any individual born in the United States.
Jus soli, or birthright citizenship, is an increasingly antiquated citizenship policy long since abolished by many major countries throughout the world, including India, Great Britain, Australia and France. The United States is one of only a handful of major nations that provide free citizenship to anyone who happens to be born in the country, including the children of illegal immigrants and so-called “birth tourists” who wish to obtain free American citizenship for their children with no real connection to the United States.
Trump himself has criticized the policy for years, which stems from a dubious legal understanding of the 14th Amendment, which was enacted to provide citizenship for freed slaves after the Civil War. Sources familiar with the matter expect a Trump administration action to end birthright citizenship to be challenged by progressive activists determined to deputize hundreds of millions of immigrants as new Democrat voters, but a ruling from the Supreme Court could conceivably end birthright citizenship for good.
When questioned about the possibility of such an executive order, White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere didn’t rule it out.
“Since taking office, President Trump has never shied away from using his lawful executive authority to advance bold policies and fulfill the promises he made to the American people, but I won’t speculate or comment on potential executive action.”
Draft measures to terminate birthright citizenship have floated throughout the Trump administration since the President took office, but efforts to do away with the 19th-century practice have been halted by the legal complexities of the issue. The Hill’s report cites White House sources who indicate the President would sign an executive order to end the practice if litigation to secure a second term doesn’t pan out, possibly setting up a legal battle that ultimately eliminates birthright citizenship under a Joe Biden administration.
President Trump himself has consistently criticized the utility of birthright citizenship as a candidate and as President, citing the policy as a de facto invitation for illegal immigrants as a candidate in 2015. As recently as 2018 he expressed interest in eliminating it through the use of executive orders and legal challenges if necessary.
If the Supreme Court rules that the 14th Amendment doesn’t mandate birthright citizenship, it won’t be easy for pro-immigration Democrats to reinstate it, with the easiest path coming through an act of Congress that would require 60 votes in the Senate.
If President Trump were to do away with the obsolete practice of birthright citizenship, he would cement his legacy as one of the greatest Presidents in the history of the United States, preserving the integrity of American citizenship for future generations of American patriots.
In His First 100 Days in Office, Biden Promises Mass Amnesty for 11 Illegal Aliens
Biden Wants to Ensure a Solid Democrat Majority for Decades to Come by Importing a New Electorate
In the first 100 days of office, presumptive U.S. president Joe Biden vows to pass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens.
The former Vice President revealed his plan to grant citizenship to millions of illegal aliens during an NBC interview with Lester Holt. Biden stated the following:
Some of it’s going to depend on the kind of cooperation I can or cannot get from the United States Congress. But I am going, I made a commitment, in the first 100 days, I will send an immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America.
John Binder of Breitbart News mentioned how several Republicans are waiting to cut an amnesty deal with Democrats:
Already, a number of Senate Republicans have suggested that they are interested in working with Biden on some sort of immigration deal. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John Cornyn (R-TX), and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) have all hinted at striking a Democrat-GOP deal on immigration that would almost certainly include an amnesty.
With over 20 million Americans unemployed or underemployed, a mega amnesty will completely wreck the labor market by displacing millions of Americans in economic dire straits. In addition, Binder highlights how unemployed Americans are also “forced to compete in the labor market by an endless stream of foreign workers who secure visas and green cards that rack up to more than 2.5 million admissions every year.”
Mass migration is an oligarchical preference and does not sit well with the average American. Over 75 percent of voters indicated their support in an exit poll for immigration reduction in a time when there are still high levels of unemployment. Moreover, once the lockdown induced unemployment falls, immigration should still be restricted according to these voters’ preferences.
The way migrants vote is also another cause for concern. If migration is not checked, continued flows of migrants could put Democrats over the top electorally speaking for years to come. The GOP would be wise to pursue immigration restriction in order to encourage assimilation, stabilize the job market, and slowly turn migrants and their kids into GOP voters just like their Catholic ethnic predecessors did after a multi-decade immigration moratorium was passed in the 1920s. A Biden administration would likely keep the floodgates open, which is why the Georgia runoff elections are so important for Republicans to win A Democrat trifecta practically ensures some kind of amnesty being brought to the floor for vote.
