There’s much talk today around the world about US President Donald Trump’s plan to to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil. If effected, such a move could affect many, many people. The US President had been speaking yesterday in an exclusive interview for “Axios on HBO.
Axios reports that such a move would be the most dramatic one yet in Trump’s hardline immigration campaign. n Saturday, the President, during a Fox News interview, vowed to construct tent cities to house migrants traveling through Mexico to the US southern border.
Meanwhile, some of the President’s defenders downplayed the prospects of successfully ending birthright citizenship by executive order. House Speaker, Paul Ryan told a Kentucky radio station that birthright citizenship could not be ended with an executive order. “Well, you obviously cannot do that,” he said.
