How to Write a Summary of an Article? The 14th Amendment grants citizenship to anymore born in the United States. Graham spoke out saying the Amendment was a mistake because children of illegal immigrants could become citizens if they were born in the United States automatically.
Birthright citizenship explained What is birthright citizenship and why are there disagreements on its interpretation? In an interview for "Axios on HBO," President Trump announced he will sign an executive order ending birthright citizenship.
When challenged on the constitutionality of doing this by executive order, Trump replied: But now they're saying I can do it just with an executive order. The 14th Amendment -- which declares, "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" -- cannot be changed by executive order, or even by an act of Congress.
It would require a constitutional amendment. Now Citizenship birthright under fire wants to attempt to change the Constitution by executive order?
If Trump moves forward, he may find that the Supreme Court -- in all likelihood with the votes of his own nominees -- declares his action unconstitutional. That would be quite a rebuke. Some conservatives justify his proposed action by taking a loose reading of the 14th Amendment, arguing that the phrase "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" leaves birthright citizenship subject to interpretation.
Funny, just a few weeks ago, many of these same conservatives during Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings were defending the "originalist" approach to the Constitution, which holds that we should interpret the plain words of the Constitution according to their original public meaning.
They were right the first time. Many of these same conservatives correctly bridle at the idea that the phrase "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State" in any way undermines the fundamental right of private citizens to keep and bear arms.
Apparently, some on the right are strict constructionists when it's convenient but suddenly discover their belief in a "living Constitution" when it serves their policy preferences.
As my American Enterprise Institute colleague John Yoo explains, the originalist reading of the 14th Amendment is the correct one: Almost everyone present in the United States, even aliens, come within the jurisdiction of the United States. If the rule were otherwise, aliens present on our territory could violate the law with impunity.
The original public meaning of the 14th Amendment -- which conservatives properly believe to be the lodestar of constitutional interpretation -- affirms birthright citizenship. Yoo further points out the high court has upheld this view of the 14th Amendment: Wong Kim Ark upheld the American citizenship of a child born in San Francisco to Chinese parents, who themselves could never naturalize under the Chinese Exclusion Acts.
The Court held that 'the Fourteenth Amendment affirms the ancient and fundamental rule of citizenship by birth within the territory, in the allegiance and protection of the country, including all children here born of resident aliens.
The precedent is so clear. So if Trump moves forward, he may find that the Supreme Court -- in all likelihood with the votes of his own nominees -- declares his action unconstitutional.Home Fire has 17, ratings and 2, reviews.
