“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,” said President Trump. “It’s ridiculous. And it has to end.” Above Trump last week at the White House

President Donald Trump says he wants to order the end of the constitutional right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born in the United States.

The president will do this by signing an executive order, he said in a TV interview. "You don't need that", Mr Trump said.

He said the benefits awarded to babies born as birthright Americans are "ridiculous", and the system "has to end".

"It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don't", he said, adding that he has run it by his counsel. The host pointed out that this is in dispute.

The comments mark another escalation in Trump's hard-line stance on immigration ahead of the November 6 midterm elections that will determine control of Congress.

"It's ridiculous and it has to end.it's in the process and it'll happen with an executive order", he said.

The 14th Amendment says "All 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".

The move would be certain to spark a constitutional debate about the meaning of the 14th Amendment.

Donald Trump has announced he is going to terminate the right to citizenship for babies born on United States soil to non-citizens.

Anton said that Trump could, via executive order, "specify to federal agencies that the children of noncitizens are not citizens" simply because they were born on USA soil.

Any legislative agenda depends on success in midterm elections next week, the president's biggest electoral test since 2016.
