Donald Trump wants to make a change to immigration and citizenship policy and he doesn’t think he needs anyone’s approval.
Donald Trump is planning on making an executive order to end birthright citizenship in America. The law that any baby born in America is an American citizen will change if Trump can do it.
In a conversation with Axios on HBO, Trump admitted he was looking into changing the law with executive order, but the lawyers are still looking into it.
“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t. You can definitely do it with an Act of Congress. But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order.” – Donald Trump
The exclusive interview on “Axios on HBO” reveals Trump’s plan to end birthright citizenship, as there is a massive caravan of over 14,000 people moving north to America’s southern border.
Trump called birthright citizenship “ridiculous” and said it “needed to end.” If Trump makes the move, this would easily be his most controversial executive order to date and it will likely face a legal battle in the courts.
Legal battles have not stopped Donald Trump in the past, and despite the potential political backlash, he is moving forward.
The interview will air on “Axios on HBO on November 4th at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT. There is no official timeline to sign the executive order, but it is likely Trump will save this for after the midterm elections.
