Trump vows to terminate birthright citizenship

Trump eyeing an executive order to end citizenship for unauthorized residents' children born in U.S

President Donald Trump says he is going to sign an executive order to end birthright citizenship: the right of children born to immigrants in the US, legally or not, to be American citizens at birth.

Vice President Mike Pence says potentially changing birthright citizenship is part of the Trump administration's broad look at US laws that draw people into the country illegally.

"You can not end birthright citizenship with an executive order".

As Trump considers an executive action to curtail what he terms "so-called Birthright Citizenship", he tweets that "It is not covered by the 14th Amendment".

One way to end birthright citizenship, Anton argues, is for Congress to pass legislation to clarify that the children of noncitizens are not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, making them noncitizens under the 14th Amendment.

A San Diego sociologist John Skrentny told NPR in 2010, the U.S.is an anomaly in the world when it comes to this issue.

Oscar now Atlantic hurricane, no threat to land
Hurricane winds extend only 15 miles from the center, while tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 115 miles. Forecasters said Oscar is expected to become a hurricane later Sunday as its track curves toward the North Atlantic.

This is a principal adopted by many countries around the world and is held within the USA constitution, which forms the basis of the entire government.

Senator Chris Coons, a Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said declared President Trump was "driving a false narrative on immigration" to stoke fear ahead of the November 6 midterm vote.

According to a 1995 opinion issued by the U.S. Department of Justice, Assistant Attorney General Walter Dellinger wrote, "Because the rule of citizenship acquired by birth within the United States is the law of the Constitution, it can not be changed through legislation, but only by amending the Constitution". He said White House counsel has told him he can change that with an executive order.

"No matter how much he may want to appeal to the alt-right, President Trump can't alter the Constitution through executive order".

Donald Trump has unveiled plans to ban babies born to illegal immigrants from automatically becoming USA citizens.

Later on Tuesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan said that Trump's methodology needed a fact check.

Germany's Merkel prepares to give up party job
The CDU has ruled Hesse for the last 19 years and just won the election at the weekend. It is still unclear what this means for Merkel's leadership.

Classic example: Pittsburgh officials urged Donald Trump to delay a visit to Pittsburgh so that funeral could proceed for victims of the synagogue slaughter, a process that will put heavy demands on local police. He's going anyway. "They were not focused on questions of legal or illegal immigration, they were focused on African-American citizenship". Although Trump claims that the U.S.is the "only" country that allows birthright citizenship, there are actually more than 30 countries that do so, according to Axios.

Already debate is raging on social media as to whether Trump is able to make such an executive order.

What does the end of birthright citizenship mean?

But Jon Feere, a legal policy analyst at the Center for Immigration Studies, wrote on the organization's website that some scholars believe the concept of birthright citizenship enshrined in the 14th Amendment can be challenged.

The problem with this interpretation is that it's relatively new, and runs contrary to the way the 14th amendment has been enforced since ratified in the 19th century.
