Trump’s Executive Order Ending “Birthright Citizenship” To Children Of Illegal Aliens

While the ‘real’ news media was busy blaming Trump for the violent acts of others, Axios got a juicy scoop about immigration.

We all know that Congress can — and should — be passing laws to fix our broken immigration system.

But when given the opportunity, they stall and let the opportunity pass by. We even remember when prominent Democrats demanded that Trump sign an Executive Order on immigration.

File this under ‘be careful what you ask for’.

During an Axios interview, the President was asked about using an Executive Order to address Birthright Citizenship for children of those here illegally.

In so doing, he scored himself a major scoop.

Trump told “Axios on HBO” that he has run the idea of ending birthright citizenship by his counsel and plans to proceed with the highly controversial move, which certainly will face legal challenges.

“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” Trump said, declaring he can do it by executive order.
When told that’s very much in dispute, Trump replied: “You can definitely do it with an Act of Congress. But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order.”
“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States … with all of those benefits,” Trump continued. “It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end.”
[…] “It’s in the process. It’ll happen … with an executive order.”
The president expressed surprise that “Axios on HBO” knew about his secret plan: “I didn’t think anybody knew that but me. I thought I was the only one. ”

Behind the scenes: “Axios on HBO” had been working for weeks on a story on Trump’s plans for birthright citizenship, based on conversations with several sources, including one close to the White House Counsel’s office.

Are you paying attention, Jim Acosta? This is what journalists used to do back before they became preening little attention whores. Speaking of attention whores, here he is, right on cue:

Of course, it will be contested in the courts and the left is already pushing back on whether he has any such right (the same left that has tried to block the lawful exercise of his Article II powers from Day One.

That said, some are already making the case that Trump is on solid legal ground here.

You see a sampling of both views in this exchange:

Others here:

The Trumpinator: every time his rivals think they’ve got him down and out, he stands back up and keeps on coming.

They laughed when he announced his candidacy. They thought he was going to some circus act.

They couldn’t have been more wrong.

He survived the primaries and got the nomination. He knocked out Crooked Hillary.

He beat CNN at their own game, and their ratings are now circling the toilet.

Mueller and the Dossier aren’t just coming up empty, they’re exposing the misdeeds of Brennan, Comey, McCabe, Strzok and all the rest.

And Trump is still keeping promises, and getting things done.

The economy is doing exactly what he promised it would. #PromisesKept

And in 2020, The Trumpinator is gonna do it again.

He’ll be back.
