Trump Mulling Exec Order Ending Anchor Babies: Calls It ‘Frankly Ridiculous’

Donald Trump says he plans to end ‘ridiculous’ birthright citizenship with an executive order because ‘You walk over the border, have a baby, congratulations – the baby is now a U.S. citizen’

“I don’t know how you found that out, but that’s very good. We’re looking at birthright citizenship very seriously. It’s frankly ridiculous.” 

Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, President Trump stated that he is thinking of issuing an executive order that would prevent the children born on American soil to illegal immigrants from gaining automatic American citizenship, calling so-called “birthright citizenship” “frankly ridiculous.”

Trump told reporters, “Birthright citizenship — where you have a baby in our land, walk over the border, have a baby, congratulations — the baby is now a U.S. citizen. We’re looking at it very, very seriously.” When he was apprised that one reporter knew of Trump’s intent to go forward with an executive order, which he had mentioned in 2018, he responded, ‘‘I don’t know how you found that out, but that’s very good. We’re looking at birthright citizenship very seriously. It’s frankly ridiculous.”

I support this 100%.  That was not the intent of our Constitution, anyway.  Two illegals do not a Legal make, as they say.  This needs to stop.

There’s now even a tourism industry based around it where women from all over the world fly to America just to give birth. Not only do they not pay their hospital bills but their baby is now an American citizen. Enough already!
