Lindsey Graham Says He'll Back Trump On Birthright Citizenship With Legislation

During an interview with Axios on HBO, Trump was asked about the idea of removing birthright citizenship, which is addressed in the 14th amendment of the US Constitution.

"It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous".

"Well you can definitely do it with an act of Congress, but now they're saying I can do it just with an executive order".

"The fact of the matter is this: The U.S. Constitution - the 14th Amendment ensures that anybody who is born here or naturalized here is entitled to the benefits that U.S. citizenship provides", Little said. In short, under the 14th Amendment, citizenship is awarded to children born in the US, or in USA territories, to parents who immigrated into the country.

The so-called "caravan" is weeks away from arriving, yet the Pentagon on Monday - days before the midterm elections - announced the deployment of thousands of troops to the border to greet what Trump has falsely called an "invasion".

Revoking birthright citizenship would spark a court fight over the president's ability to change an amendment to the constitution on his own.

Despite Trump's assertion, "the U.S.is not the only nation to have birthright citizenship, but the policy is rare outside of the Americas", noted Fox News.

The interviewer said that was disputed, indicating it might breach the 14th amendment of the United States constitution.

Trump, who has long decried "anchor babies", said he has discussed the move with his legal counsel and believes it can be accomplished with executive action, a view at odds with the opinions of many legal scholars. In summer 2010, Graham considered introducing a constitutional amendment to change existing law to end birthright citizenship.

Many believe President Trump, who, unlike his predecessor is not a constitutional scholar, or even an attorney, is absolutely wrong and can not essentially line-item veto the Constitution.

Pelosi's confidence scared the late night liberal-leaning host, who implied he had similar hopes that President Donald Trump would lose the presidential race in 2016.

"When they are captured, we don't let them out", Trump told host Laura Ingraham.

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