Donald Trump promised to end citizenship for migrants’ babies

Donald Trump promised to end citizenship for migrants’ babies

Donald Trump is going to change the status of the newborn babies whose parents have not an American citizenship, Telegraph reported. In the interview with Axios, President vowed to end that “ridiculous” right to citizenship.

President Trump strongly believes that the right to citizenship for anyone born on American soil is just “ridiculous”. This week, the national leader intensified his assault on immigration and the benefits people from other countries are getting in the USA.

Explaining the idea of ending citizenship for migrants’ babies, Mr Trump said he had been advised that he could sign an executive order. Such kind of a document does not need ratification by Congress but it is able to overturn an amendment dating back to 1868 – the guarantee of a passport to children born in the USA irrespective of their parents’ nationality.

“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 for 85 years with all of those benefits.” He added: “It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end,” Trump said on Tuesday.

In the light of the recent events like migrants caravan from Mexico, Trump’s idea marked the latest volley in the president’s push against immigration. On Monday, the national leader ordered to deploy 5,200 troops to the southern border to stop a group of mainly Central American asylum seekers from entering through Mexico.

The United States went through many waves of the massive migration, the most successful took place in the nineties when the country got a number of the high-qualified specialists from the former USSR. In comparison with unqualified refugees from poor and undereducated Mexico, Soviet migrants brought to the US not only the criminals but intellect, too. Under Soviet Scientists Immigration Act of 1992, the scientists or engineers who have expertise in biological, chemical, nuclear, or other high technology fields were welcomed to the USA.

In fact, within two years of his presidency, Trump’s policy as simple as understandable and stable: the US is no for migrants from the third world.
