President Donald Trump has announced plans to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for children of non-citizens and unauthorised immigrants born on USA soil.

Donald Trump plans to push an executive order to end the right of USA citizenship to children born in the United States to non-citizens and immigrants in the country illegally, he told Axios in an interview published on Tuesday, a move that would prompt a constitutional fight.

As Graham's 2010 consideration makes clear, the president's announcement is not the first time a Republican has suggested eliminating birthright citizenship under the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

"It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous".

"I'm glad that the President is saying he's going to use whatever means necessary", Scalise said.

"Let me say this: Up until today, I would have said if the election were held today, we would win", she told Stephen Colbert on the Late Show Tuesday night. "We should change our Constitution and say if you come here illegally and you have a child, that child's automatically not a citizen".

Anton explained, "What they are saying is, if you are born on USA soil subject to the jurisdiction of the United States - meaning you're the child of citizens or the child of legal immigrants - then you are entitled to citizenship", Anton told Fox News' Tucker Carlson back in July. "You don't", Trump said.

Powerball numbers drawn for $750M jackpot, 4th largest in USA history
The next Mega Millions drawing is Friday, Oct. 26, with an estimated jackpot of $40 million and cash option of $22 million. The victor or winners would also have a one-time cash option of $428.6 million - a prize that's still more than alright.

Both the 14th Amendment and the INA include this clause.

The referendum on the 27th Amendment of the Irish Constitution took place in 2004 and 79% of the electorate voted to ensure that children born in Ireland to two foreign parents would have no right to citizenship.

He said he plans to proceed with the new policy by executive order. He indicated on Twitter that presidents can't, in fact, just sign executive orders to do away with parts of the Constitution or laws.

If Trump issues an executive order to end birthright citizenship "there will be lawsuits from all over the country over equal protection", Yegani added.

Siskind described the plan, as well as the Trump administration's decision to send thousands of troops to the USA border later this week, as "Hail Mary passes created to thwart disaster" for Republicans in next week's midterms.

The president has previously described birthright citizenship as a "magnet" for illegal immigration and the 14th Amendment as "questionable" in this context.

"Please don't say that", he told Pelosi.
