    It's the next step in making America great again. Birthright Citizenship refers to Citizen parents, not Illegals. The 14th Amendment was only created for slaves after the civil war. It was not created for foreigners. Let's hear from the man who wrote the Citizenship clause himself, Senator John Jacob Howard:

    "Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country."

    This understanding was reaffirmed by Senator Edward Cowan, who stated:

    "[A foreigner in the United States] has a right to the protection of the laws; but he is not a citizen in the ordinary acceptance of the word..."

    The phrase "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" was intended to exclude American-born persons from automatic citizenship whose allegiance to the United States was not complete.

    I'm in! It may take a constitutional amendment to to do.

    The clumsy-ass 14th Amendment served its purpose, but now that poorly-worded, overly broad POS is fucking up everything it touches.

    I want the SCOTUS to properly apply it to the 2nd Amendment just to watch the California Commies squeal like buttfucked pigs and demand a clarification.

    Joe, I think the laws are already on the book and may support President Trump, as this nation has a major health issue with the fentanyl that is coming over here with the coyotes and sometimes the people applying for citizenship here who cross illegally.

    Since Congress refuses to help or even address the humanitarian crisis they have created by omission of humanitarian funding, President Trump is doing the best thing to look into what he can and cannot do according to laws already on the books. He's careful that way.

    President Trump is liable for protecting citizens from foreigner's harm, and the sale of killing fentanyl is killing 300 Americans per week, last I read. It's coming over not only with coyotes, it's coming over with some of the 'dreamers' as well. That's why they're terrorists. They take people's children and kill them with bad drugs passed of as sweet dreams.

    I agree that the laws as written/as may support Trump, but I doubt the courts will agree because of the many many years of precedent of interpreting the 24th Amendment as to give birthright citizenship to foreigners' babies if born on American soil.

    This is one of the major carrots we dangle in front of illegals. That may not have been the original intent but how many times have we been burned by the unintended consequences of poorly conceived laws?

    Well it's a new day in paradise. If you read some of the arguments during the creation of the amendment, one of them was about it being misinterpreted as any baby born here automatically becoming a US citizen. So I don't think we need a new amendment, just a new ruling by the Supreme Court on the amendment itself.
