In an exclusive interview for Axios on HBO, President of the United States of America, Donald Trump has said he plans to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil.

In a preview released before the new four-part documentar series debuting on HBO this Sunday, Trump says:

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. And it has to end.

    What do you mean it CANNOT happen? ???. It is actually bound to happen eventually!!!! The only thing that Trump cannot do is putting it into law through an executive order BUT he can start the process like he did with banning immigrants from certain Countries through the executive order. This will make the case go to Supreme Court where the Court will define the 14th Amendment to only covering children of US citizens and permanent residents. The mistake we keep making is underestimating this dude or taking him for a fool. Under all his noise, is a man with an agenda and he is surely succeeding at it. That it CANNOT is totally wrong. The constitution is not being changed, it is now only being giving the definition it needs, at least that is the explanation that will be used. So siddon there dey deceive una self. I am not pro Trump but one thing I give him is that, he is a man of his own words and he is there to make changes to the Country and he is doing what he is saying.

      The Supreme court has already interpreted it. U.s VS Wong Kim Ark. This issue is very sensitive but the Truth is it CANNOT happen. GOP divided on this issue and also i guarantee that if para venture the pressure is on and it goes to the supreme court,it wont see the light of the day. Speaker Paul Ryan has already come out to denounce it. It CANNOT happen. I have never for once underrated Trump but this aint happening. It so sad seeing the divide in the country and Trump hasnt helped the issue with his rhetoric, Then again the Liberal Media(Cnn,Msnbc,Abc) always wanna demonize Trump and then of cause Fox News firing back . America has never been this divided ,its crazy! Truth is i really do not care if it happens which i boldly know wont, i am more interested in NIGERIA. God bless Nigeria

      @ reaq, what news are you listening to? In fact all you wrote if you had done your due diligence you will understand does not follow in this case. The Supreme court ruling in the Wong Kim Ark case in 1849 was for a child Chinese citizens who were however permanent residents of the U.S (Google it). Trump is not trying to change that. Even the Liberals have said that the Supreme court has never ruled on it being for just citizens and permanent residents. Secondly, Paul Ryan said Birthright citizenship cannot be changed BY AN EXECUTIVE ORDER. He never said it cannot be changed. In fact, he knows better than to say that especially in the current political clime we are in. Don’t take his comments out of context here. So go back and read up, heck today, all you have to do is listen, every one is talking about it and I believe it will happen eventually.

    @ reaq; what makes you believe it “CANNOT” happen? Do you understand how the law works at all? In fact, you don’t have to know how the law works all you have to do is follow the news. While Trump cannot put this into law by an executive order, he sure can start the process (like he did with banning citizens of certain countries from coming to the US). All the executive order will do is make it skip the Congress and go straight to the Supreme Court where the Court (which is now majorly conservative) gets to “define” the 14th Amendment as only pertaining to Children born to US citizens and permanent residents. Once the Supreme Court passes it, it is law. Everyone has acknowledged that all it will take is the Supreme Court putting a definition on the 14th Amendment.

    We keep making the mistake of underestimating this guy. I was one of those that did, but not anymore. Under all that noise and seemingly bluff is a man with an agenda and he unlike recent past politicians is putting action to his words. Trump is determined to make a change in this country and totally succeeding at it. There are many other immigration reforms he is working that is not making as much news like stopping citizens from filling for parents and siblings.

    This however, was bound to happen sooner rather than later I.e an end to automatic citizenship, be it Democrats or Republicans. Trump is just pushing for it now to push for the Republicans during the mid terms. So if people are not calm it is ok. The last thing you want to happen is spend a ton of money to come to the U.S to have a baby and on that day find out that your child is not a citizen. It happened to some people the day he signed the executive order banning citizens of those Countries and they were turned around. Trump is a man with an agenda and determined to push his agenda through.

    @Reaq and lemmerant, One more reason to go back to your country and demand for the right leadership and human rights structure.Sooner or later , we will address this battle we are running away from .
    I have never been able to understand this thirst. for third class citizenship/ right to serfdom (glorified as being an American citizen)
    Maybe our people will work very now to give birth on the moon to keep up with the morbid classism ( which is actually a manifestation of hunger ) destroying this country !

    You come from a country that dispenses human right as wild animal rights.
    And you want respect and recognition from a system the white man has labored blood and sweat to achieve. You have another think coming.
    It’s time to wean ourselves off this beautiful opiod sodden sleep called delusion .

    And oh, RIDE ON MY TRUMP. I love you .
