Trump’s Jaw-Dropping Promise: No More Birthright Citizenship

Former President Donald Trump has made a bold promise to sign an executive order ending birthright citizenship on his first day back in the White House if he is re-elected in 2024. In a campaign video posted on Truth Social, Trump outlines his plan to address the granting of U.S. citizenship to babies born to illegal immigrants on American soil and the issue of “birth tourism” for foreign visitors.

Trump emphasizes the need to secure the border and maintain a correct interpretation of the law. He argues that children of illegal aliens should not automatically receive U.S. citizenship, as this policy incentivizes illegal immigration and burdens American taxpayers. Trump highlights the access to welfare, taxpayer-funded healthcare, voting rights, and chain migration that these children can potentially obtain, which he sees as rewarding the parents’ illegal actions.

The former president asserts that ending birthright citizenship would serve as a deterrent for illegal immigration and encourage those unlawfully admitted under the Biden administration to return to their home countries. Trump also aims to address the practice of birth tourism, where individuals from around the world exploit U.S. citizenship laws by staying in the country during the final weeks of pregnancy to secure citizenship for their child.

While legal experts caution that an executive order to end birthright citizenship could conflict with the 14th Amendment, which grants citizenship to those born or naturalized in the United States, Trump argues that this interpretation is a historical myth perpetuated by open borders advocates. He suggests that many scholars support his viewpoint and the need to reevaluate the policy.

Although such an executive order would likely face legal challenges, Trump remains resolute in his commitment to address birthright citizenship. He envisions a future where the country regains its greatness, emphasizes secure borders, prioritizes American interests, and ensures proper education for its citizens.

In presenting his plan, Trump aims to ignite a conversation about immigration and encourage a reexamination of existing policies. By prioritizing the integrity of the law and the well-being of American citizens, he believes that his proposed changes would contribute to a stronger and more prosperous nation.
