President Trump hints at the shift in his meeting with the Danish Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen to your reaction to his interest in the purchase of Greenland.

In front of journalists in front of the White house on Wednesday, President Trump is again threatening to end what he called a “ridiculous” policy of birthright citizenship awards citizenship automatically to those in the United States was born.

“We look at that very seriously,” Trump told reporters, as he is in the White house for Kentucky. “Birthright citizenship, where you have a baby on our land — they run across the border, have a baby, congratulations, the baby is now a US citizen. We see it very, very seriously …It is, frankly, ridiculous.”

During his campaign and in the last year, Trump suggested that he might use an executive order to end birthright citizenship, saying it promotes illegal immigration and “anchor babies.” Democrats, who command the vote an overwhelming share of immigrants, immediately called the idea unconstitutional.

While illegal immigrants can cast a vote, under the birthright citizenship policy, which can their children.

The President’s announcement came hours after the White house said it would move to scrap a large court agreement, to allow for immigrant families, are arrested more than their cases to be considered, rather than to solve them after 20 days.

ANALYSIS: TRUMP IS RIGHT, THE END OF BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP IS CONSTITUTIONAL

Lawyers say that the decisive question in relation to birthright citizenship, whether the 14th Amendment provides citizenship, “[a]ll 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” – includes the children of illegal immigrants.

The unresolved dispute centers on whether these children are “subject” to the jurisdiction of the United States.

In an op-ed fellow Hans A. von Spakovsky, published in the last year of FoxNews.com, Heritage Foundation senior legal critics, “said studiously the jurisdiction of the United States ignored or incorrectly, the Amendment to the 14th interprets” the requirement that illegal immigrants are subject to “children”.

“The fact that tourists or illegal immigrants to apply our laws and our courts, if it means against our laws, they are subject to the territorial jurisdiction of the United States and the criminal law can be prosecuted,” Spakovsky. “But it did not place them within the political ‘jurisdiction’ of the United States that the set defined by the fathers of the 14th Amendment.”

Is birthright citizenship debate for the Supreme Court?

Look at the 14th Amendment by Andrew McCarthy, Fox News contributor and a former U.S. attorney, and John Yoo, former deputy assistant attorney general.

Spakovsky added: “Today, many people are not seem to understand the distinction between -local jurisdiction – the subject of foreigners in the U.S. to the jurisdiction of our laws and full political responsibility, the faithfulness requires of the US government.”

Michael Anton, a former national security adviser to Trump, said on Fox News last July that “there is a clause in the middle of the novel is to ignore the people, or interpret them incorrectly, are subject to the jurisdiction thereof.”

“What you are saying is, if you are born on US soil, subject to the jurisdiction of the United States — which means, you’re the child, the citizen or the child of immigrants, then you are entitled to citizenship,” Anton said Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “If you are here illegally, if they do not apply to debt of allegiance to a foreign nation, if the citizens of a foreign country, that the clause for you.”

The first President took aim at birthright citizenship in October 2018 interview with Axios.

“We are the only country in the world where a person comes up and has a baby, and the baby said, in essence, a citizen of the United States … with all of these benefits,” Trump. “It is ridiculous. It is ridiculous. And it must end.”
