Donald Trump: Birthright Babies Not Citizens

5

trumpDonald Trump said he wants to “test out” in court his views that children born to undocumented immigrants on U.S. soil are not American citizens. “I don’t think they have American citizenship and if youspeak to some very, very good lawyers—and I know some will disagree—but many of them agree with me and you’re going to find they do not have American citizenship,” Trump said Tuesday.

Opponents say that the Fourteenth Amendment 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 added that the “good ones” would be able to apply for the right to return once all undocumented residents had been deported. Read more at CNN.

  1. “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.”

    One of the most important lines in the entire US Constitution. Too bad Trump doesn’t want to follow it.

    Back in the 19th century there was massive anti-immigration sentiment similar to that which Trump is fanning today. Then, the hatred was directed towards German, Irish, and Chinese immigrants. Had the nativist bigots won the arguments, Trump’s own family would not have been able to immigrate from Germany. Unfortunately by the 1920s the nativist bigots finally prevailed and six million Jews had nowhere to flee.

  2. You guys didn’t read the law. It says “and subject to the jurisdiction thereof”. Mexican citizens that came illegaly are not subject to the jurisdiction and not citizens. Just like ambassadors of foreign countries that have children here, do not become citizens. This is all laid out clearly in the writings of the one who wrote the law. Trumps grandparents came to this country legally, as did mine. Do not get confused!

  3. Trump wants an America for the privileged and hotel ready crowd. If you are just plain poor, he is not going to give you a dime.

    Give him credit. He is the Rabid Agitator of this new era. And his world is not a generation of peace.
