Stopping birth right citizenship

Is it really possible?

I'm not sure if an executive order can really make this happen.

What do you think?

Anyone?

If my understanding is right, granting that an executive order is possible to change this law, (I'm 85 percent positive), it can be done, your fear of retro effect isn't going to happen.

There's a possibility that yes both houses get involved, however as it stands because of imminent need, Trump can have it done with the stroke of a pen.
hmmm

The esteemed perfesser of towering intellect wave linds...wink understands the U.S. Constitution better'n anybody.
Towering intellect, y'all understand.

Replace SCOTUS with the perfesser! Simplify. SIMPLIFY! applause

But seriously, more or less.
Here's what might be presumed...
The Don's EO/legislation introduced in Congress will likely be challenged in court and will eventually make it's way to SCOTUS (or the perfesser should we get our shit together and simplify things).

Constitutional attorneys on both sides will read this blog to educate themselves about what the Constitution says/means and present their arguments to SCOTUS (or the perfesser).

The nine SCOTUS Justices (or the perfesser) will consider the arguments and arrive at their/his opinion(s).

Five or more of those opinions (or the perfesser's) will become settled law.
That's how it works. Or will work should we simplify things.

How will they/he decide the case?
SCOTUS might consider Con's point about what the guy who wrote the 14th Amendment said about it* and find that Birthright Citizenship is not conferred on offspring born to those illegally residing in the U.S.
The perfesser will probably dismiss Con's point and find otherwise.

That's MY opinion on SCOTUS's/the perfesser's ruling. So it's not settled law.
Other options expressed here may vary and probably will. Those opinions sre not settled law either.
Not even that of the esteemed perfesser of towering intellect....wink
At least not for the time being.

*This would be a helluva lot easier if the guy had said what he meant. We could skip the ruling and settle the matter right here on this blog. Stupid [email protected] mumbling

Mic, you just made my day.

In short let's stick to what it is.

Babies who are born from ILLEGALS ARE NOT CITIZENS BASED ON OUR CONSTITUTIONAL LAW.

Yessssssssss.

Now here's what I've learned from Conrad's post. It counter balance the law that these ILLEGALS CAN'T BE PROSECUTED AND SUBJECT TO THE SAME LAW, even if they've killed all of us. What a law Mic.

Thanks in advance.

no regard for our constitution is plain stupidity , but , what else do you expect from Trump ? studecar professor
More stupidity at it's finest as people talk about our Constitution but disregard the laws built up and around it.

The laws are there for reason. Certain powers were granted to certain branches. In the case of congress for immigration and citizenship, they're fully lacking over the issues which have been a problem for decades and refuse to address it properly.

The executive branch is there with authority to step in where they won't. It will either force them to do something for a change or it will stand as something that should have been done a long time ago.

Get over it stop telling us about our constitution. It wasn't meant for illegal immigrants and such. IT WAS MEANT TO HELP PROTECT THE CHILDREN OF FREED SLAVES.
The 14th amendment.

Elle, yes, if only rudeness is completely eliminated, it'd be a perfect world.
lindsyjones
Draegon, exactly. Our constitution violated and it doesn't make sense why it should serve for the benefits of those who violate it.
Republicans are split on this. Quite a few are with Speaker Ryan who says "you obviously cannot do that."
lindsyjones
I hope it's all going to be in one solid direction.
lindsyjones
It probably doesn't work as easily as possible.

Maybe just build the wall is a faster solution.
