Donald Trump suggests he will end birthright citizenship with executive order

President Donald Trump today said, he is preparing an executive order that would end the right to US citizenship for children born in the US to non-citizens. It is his latest hardline immigration rhetoric ahead of the midterm congressional elections. Trump, in an interview with Axios, said birthright citizenship has to end and that it would with an executive order.

Under the current laws, anyone born in the US irrespective of the nationality of parents automatically becomes an American citizen. Trump said, the US is the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the US for 85 years with all of those benefits. It's ridiculous. And it has to end.

Asked about the legality of such an executive order, Trump said,  Some legal experts believe that the president with an executive order can end birthright citizenship without changing the Constitution. Responding to a question, Trump said the effort to end birthright citizenship is in the process. 

Meanwhile, American Senator Lindsay Graham said that Trump plans to introduce a legislation in the Senate to end birthright citizenship.

Graham said, the US is one of two developed countries in the world who grant citizenship based on location of birth. This policy is a magnet for illegal immigration, out of the mainstream of the developed world, and needs to come to an end.

With the midterm elections nearing, Trump has renewed his drive to end migrants coming across the border, vowing to take drastic actions.
