Birthright citizenship will end 'one way or another'
Nov 01, 2018, 03:26
Ryan told a Kentucky radio station Tuesday that "you cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order", following remarks from the President indicating that Trump believes he can do just that, though many legal scholars disagree.
Trump's plans to end the policy further escalates his administration's efforts to promote immigration as a major campaign issue before the November 6 midterm elections. "Guess what? You don't", Trump told an interviewer on Monday.
"If he can do DACA, we can do this by executive order", Trump said, using the acronym for the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
The president's opposition to the constitutional provision centers specifically on the fact that children born in the United States to immigrant parents - whether they are in the country legally or not - are automatically citizens. He said he wants to use an executive order to end the practice by which children born in the US of non-citizen or illegal immigrant parents are immediately a citizen. "It's ridiculous. And it has to end".
"Where we obviously totally agree with the President is getting at the root issue here, which is unchecked illegal immigration", Ryan said.
Trump, seeking to energise his supporters and help Republicans keep control of Congress, has stoked anxiety about a caravan of Central American migrants making its way to the US-Mexico border.
The U.S.is not the only country to grant birthright citizenship, with Canada and a number of Latin American countries also doing so, but the issue has always been a contentious one in the U.S. - particularly for those seeking to restrict illegal immigration into the U.S.
President Donald Trump criticized House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday after the Speaker of the House challenged his idea of ending birthright citizenship. Trump dispatched more than 5,000 active-duty military troops to the southern border on Monday as a slow-moving human caravan of around 3,500 Central American migrants, including nursing mothers and children, trekked towards the U.S. border at least 1,000 miles away. "It is not covered by the 14th Amendment because of the words 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof'". "This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!" This is not about birthright citizenship.
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
"The only way to eliminate birthright citizenship would be through a new Constitutional amendment", he said.
Ryan and Mr. Trump have clashed in the past, particularly during the 2016 presidential election.
Trump contends the wording of the 14th Amendment, which grants the citizenship, gives him the authority. "We - House Republicans and this President - are in total agreement on the need to stop illegal immigration, to secure our border and fix our laws".
