But when the mothers are citizens of other countries (say England, Germany, Syria, or Russia) then all of their children should automatically become citizens of those same countries upon birth --without regard to the geographical locations of these births.

It may very well. Placed in a historical framework, Trump is attacking the heart of an issue that resulted from the blood, sweat, and loss of life of enslaved and free black people in the United States. To explain: Common sense would say that all human beings physically present in the United States are "persons" for constitutional purposes-notwithstanding abortion activists' claims to the contrary.

Guess what? "They" are wrong. Targeting birthright citizenship certainly doesn't deviate far from this troubling lineage. This is not a novel idea put forth by the AG.

Why were such people excluded?

Beyond the nuts and bolts of American governance, most of this time is spent on the indeterminate language of the supreme law of the United States. Any person in the USA, even a foreign tourist, is subject to USA laws while here. Not only will he not let it go, but he has started gnawing at how we determine citizenship in this country. The Center for Immigration Studies roughly estimates about 36,000 of these "anchor" babies annually.

Playing identity politics. Those favoring a narrower interpretation of the 14th Amendment, ratified in 1868 to solidify the citizenship of former slaves, include Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa - who's pushed lawmakers to repeal the policy since at least 2015. "Hundreds, even thousands" of Latinos born near the U.S. -Mexico border were told that their birth certificates weren't sufficient proof of U.S. citizenship to get their passports approved or renewed.

In the United States of America, changing birthright citizenship might not be so easy. They are not accused of racism for doing so. "The Supreme Court endorsed this reading in the Slaughter-House Cases (1872) and Elk v. Wilkins (1884)". The Court ordered that he be admitted on the basis that his parents, though born in China, were permanent residents with domicile in the United States.

Emma Vigeland of Rebel HQ, a show aired by the Young Turks, spoke with some Trump supporters about whether they agreed that the President should have the authority to so drastically alter a citizenship right.

It's ridiculous indeed, and a legal loophole being exploited for long, that some women visit America for the sole objective to give birth, and then return home, with their new-born having a USA citizenship certificate, to be used later on in life. The citizenship clause provided them equal legal status. "Even if they've been on our soil for a mere matter of seconds", he said. Since the time of the Civil War, the Fourteenth Amendment has held that any person born in the United States and "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" is a native born citizen.

"Hilton, who was born in Miami, speaks from a position of privilege. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States". Also, with more than 30 million people living in just those three countries, America can not possibly absorb everyone seeking to escape gang violence.

In the future, the courts may expand this precedent to cover illegal aliens arrested upon crossing to the American side of the border. Bill Nelson, who is seeking a fourth term. Just as it does when it denies entry to a foreigner who has committed serious crimes in their own country. "We have a right and responsibility to protect our nation", Grossman said.

Birthright citizenship is a constitutional right provided for in the first line of the 14th Amendment, which reads, "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". That is not something new, but a return to what seems to have been the original intent all along.
