Donald Trump reveals plans to end birthright citizenship for babies born to non-citizens
01 November, 2018, 05:48
President Trump vowed Wednesday that birthright citizenship will end "one way or the other", a day after it emerged he was considering killing the policy by executive order - a development that sparked disagreement among Republicans and condemnation from Democrats.
With seven days to go before high-stakes elections that he has sought to focus on fear-mongering over immigration, Trump made the comments to "Axios on HBO".
TRUMP: "It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment".

He was speaking to Axios in an interview, whose clips were aired today ahead of the full broadcast on Sunday, where he said he has already consulted with White House's counsel on the matter. Some of Trump's previous immigration executive orders, including an attempt to bar entry to citizens from some Muslim-majority countries, came under legal scrutiny after a chaotic drafting process.
Trump also said the issue would ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court. His administration announced the deployment of 5,200 troops to protect the frontier as the "caravan" continues to advance - though it is still weeks, if not months, from reaching the USA border. It's highly questionable whether an act of Congress could do it, either, though it is conceivable that legislators could change the rules regarding children born in the US of parents who are in the country illegally.

"No president can change the Constitution with the stroke of a pen".
The debate over birthright citizenship is not new in the USA, a country built by immigrants from around the globe.
"During congressional debates, both proponents and opponents of the citizenship clause agreed with this interpretation of the 14th Amendment", he added.
He said in an interview with Axios that he intends to restrict birthright citizenship by way of an executive order.
"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.
The problem comes with the phrase "subject to the jurisdiction thereof".
And he has called on Mexico to halt groups of Central American migrants - which he has repeatedly vilified in campaign speeches - that are traveling through the country to reach the United States.
