 Trump wants to abolish birth citizenship CNN: he is trying to change the constitution.


Oct. 31, the United States President Trump in recent interviews with the media made astonishing remarks, said he wanted to abolish the birth citizenship, but also said that Congress does not need approval to make this change. The remark immediately triggered strong opposition from the two parties. CNN, the US media, wrote that this reflects Trumps belief that what he says is law and is trying to change the US constitution.

In an interview with Axios, Trump said he planned to draft an executive order that would revoke the right of non-U.S. citizens and children born to illegal immigrants in the United States to U.S. citizenship at birth. You can definitely do this through Congressional action, but now they say I can do it through an executive order, the president said, suggesting that they want to bypass Congress.

Turning to this topic, Trump also mistakenly called the United States is the only country in the world with birth citizenship. But in fact, Canada and most other countries in the US and South America are also like this.

In response to Trumps remarks, House Minority Leader Pelosi swiftly attacked the move as an attempt to divert attention from other issues before next weeks mid-term elections. In a statement, Pelosi said, the president has no power to erase part of the constitution. The speaker of the house of Representatives, Ruian, also thought Trump was obviously unable to do so. Senator Grassley believes that the termination of the right of birth requires a constitutional amendment. Im not a lawyer, but in my opinion, what is needed to make a change is to amend the constitution, not an executive order.

In addition to the two party members, the American media is more unkind. CNN pointed out in a commentary entitled Trump considers what he says to be law that the idea of a U.S. president is highly unlikely to work. Because 150 years ago, the 14th Amendment granted automatic citizenship to anyone born in the United States, and the Supreme Court upheld this inherent right. One of the messages that the latest remarks emphasize to the outside world is that the law is what he says.

CNN bluntly, Trump can declare innocence or guilt according to his personal views. He would ridicule the decisions of American judges that he disagreed with, and even call for the death penalty before people are formally brought to court, thus abandoning the basic concept of due process. Now, he seems to want to rewrite the constitution. Even if most of Trumps assertions about the law are wrong, these statements will get attention because they are spoken by the supreme president of the United States. At present, the White House has not issued the relevant content of the proposed order, nor outlined the legal basis for the order. But CNN believes that if the action is carried out through administrative orders, it will be challenged in court immediately. Trumps attempt to deprive new immigrants of their citizenship exposes his deep contempt for the U.S. Constitution, said Chavez, a former Reagan administration official and director of the Immigration Reform Groups Becoming American Initiative. His motive is purely political, and he wants to instigate a backlash before next weeks mid-term elections. The camp of the people. Source: overseas web editor: Ji Guo Jie _NBJ11143
