Donald Trump To Change 14th Amendment Of  US Constitution By Ending Birthright Citizenship To Babies Born By Non US Citizens

Nigerian celebrities giving birth in the US need to start looking for alternative because Trump is just about to shut them out.

On Monday  in an interview with Axios, the President revealed his plan to sign an executive order to end birthright citizenship to babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil.

Though he didn’t disclose when he will signing the executive order to stop the birthright citizenship, however analysts alleged that he may be potentially setting up another constitutional standoff.

This is what the said during the interview:

“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in, has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits,” 

“It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end,” he continued. “It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” he said, adding that he has run it by his counsel.

“You can definitely do it with an act of Congress. But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order,” Trump said. The President didn’t provide any details of his plan, but said that “it’s in the process. It’ll happen.”

If Trump signed the executive order, he will be going against the 14th Amendment to the Constitution that 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.”

  1. Donald Trump is a Republican and that is one the party’s manifestos. That is why they called them conservative or GOP. Their agendas focus on themselves what benefits them as an American. If you are not one of them they believe you should not be enjoying the same benefits as they do. Thank God we have Democrat party on the other side. Democrats do not share the same ideology as Republicans. Democrats believe if you contribute your own quota towards development of United States, you have become an American and you are entitle to the same benefit just as other citizens. Extending a citizenship to non- citizen is not a new policy, in fact, during the ancient Roman Empire when a Rome was then world super power, they will give you a citizenship status when you have contributed towards development of Rome and pay some certain fees. They will honor you with the same status/right just like a Roman, check the history. Besides, there are more than 21 Countries around the World that offer citizenship to non-citizens after meeting some criteria. This idea of Trump threatening some Immigrants is just an act of diminishing the values of United States.

    Let me remind you, it was during the administration of President Clinton a Democrat who initiated the benefit of VISA lottery which many people took advantage to become a citizen today. There are many immigrants who never thought of travelling out of their Country let alone becoming a US citizen and this benefit extended to their family back home. It was a big shock for me before the inauguration of Trump seeing some foolish Nigerians gathered together supporting Trump. They have no idea about what Republican under Trump have for them. They are just supporting for the purpose of supporting. Would you support a Party that support your people and accommodate other cultures or would you rather support a Party that insult you, humiliates you and treat you like you are nobody? What you guys think?
