Trump will end the anchor baby scheme

President Trump plans to end the anchor baby scheme, in which pregnant women have a baby here to claim citizenship.

As liberals say the anchor baby scheme is a myth, they should have no problem ending it.

President Trump appeared on "Axios on HBO," which asked him about it. Apparently he was surprised they knew he had a plan, but nevertheless, he talked about it.

Hmm. Maybe John Barron told them.

"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 ... with all of those benefits. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And it has to end," America's president said.

Axios corrected the president, "More than 30 countries, most in the Western Hemisphere, provide birthright citizenship."

Most countries don't. That's good to know.

This should help in the midterm election because even some of those who oppose The Wall are put off by the anchor baby scheme.

The 14th Amendment states, "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. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

The key words are "subject to the jurisdiction."

The child of an illegal alien from Canada is still subject to the jurisdiction of Canada because, not to be Canuckophobic about it, the mother did not submit herself to the laws of our nation in coming here illegally.

Indeed, eleven years ago when Karen Jepp of Calgary was pregnant with identical quadruplet daughters, she had to fly 325 miles to Great Falls, Montana, population 50,000, because Canada did not have the facilities to handle such a birth.

The stories all said, "Canadian quads born in Montana," but they really are American because we allow anchor babies.

President Trump wants to end that.

GOOD.

  1. So much for constitutionalist or originalist interpretations of the Constitution. Maybe the rapist drunk will allow it.

    If Trump won't uphold the Constitution, add it to the articles of impeachment.

    3. Yeah, that was pretty incoherent.
      Ted, BClinton, etc come to mind but Trump is a well known teetotaler and even though he has talked about celebs grabbing pussy im not aware of any rape charges.

  2. POTUS said something technically wrong, to force coverage (IMO).
    MSM (Jake Tapper) tweets "this is not actually true... but the US & Canada are the only two developed nations that do it."
    MSM's audience: "wait, only two? I thought it was everybody..."

  3. Second paragraph nails it. If it is not a problem, no big deal. But we know with liberals, everything is a big deal. They take both sides of the issue when it suits their agenda.

  4. This is long overdue and will probably be in front of a 9th Circuit or DC district court almost before the ink's dry on the EO. I'm pretty sure Trump's intent is to let them litigate and perhaps help shape permanent policy via judicial guidance/rulings to what otherwise is a temporary Presidential directive.

    In the short term this will resonant with a majority of Americans who don't like line jumpers.

  5. As CNN's own anchor baby, JimMe Acosta, noted they shouldn't be talking about this but Trump is making them do so. Once again Trump pwns the media and sets the reporting agenda.

  6. The troll in the first comment is right. "Anchor babies" with birth-right citizenship may be a horrible idea from a public policy standpoint, but the language of the 14th Amendment is crystal clear:

    Born in the U.S.A. = Citizenship.

    If we don't like it, the only option is to amend the constitution. And the procedure for amending the constitution is set out in the constitution. I hate it when the constitution is amended via the vote of 5 far left justices of the Supreme Court. It's only slightly less bad if it were five conservative justices imposing the amendment to the constitution via extra-constitutional means.

    An illegal alien, and that illegal's child, are still "subject" to the laws of the United States, even if our political class chooses not to enforce said laws against them. Same as with the country elite -- people like Beto O'Rourke the Texas leftist -- are still "subject" to the laws of this country even if Daddy is a Judge and gets his precious 26 year old baby boy off. This exception in the 14th Amendment for those not "subject" to the laws would refer to diplomats and ambassadors who are not generally subject to our laws based on diplomatic immunity.

    So the stupid evil troll commenting first found himself at least a piece of an acorn.

    1. Open-Border/Anchor-Baby defenders can play semantics all they like. But at the end of the day, present bastardization of the 14th's meaning and purpose will fall to Constructionist clarification at the Supreme Court.
      And it will land there. Hopefully sooner than later.
      As to the lower court rulings which will undoubtedly come any minute, I would welcome PDJT's taking a page from another great President, the "disrupter" Andrew Jackson. And we all know what _he_ said about spurious court rulings.

  8. It had always been my understanding that the 14th Amendment was strictly to enforce the rights of newly freed slaves and their children following the Civil War, but was misinterpreted to include the children of foreign nationals. After reading this article (link below) in The Federalist I cannot maintain that interpretation.

    The 14th is accordingly a huge magnet, saying to everyone in the world who is unhappy with their own country, goverment, or condition, to come here & have their children. Once their kids are citizens, who can keep out the parents? So the whole family line gets to come to the USA, though they don't know or care about our history or customs. Why should they adopt our ways? They're not Americans, they're foreigners with citizenship. E.g. Minnesota muslims.

    Accordingly I implore President Trump to do exactly what he's proposing: end the anchor baby scheme!

  11. What POTUS is doing is letting everyone know that there WILL be a change and this is laying the ground work. It's putting people on notice. The notion that an illegal alien who broke our laws to be here can just pump out a kid and it gets automatic citizenship is beyond insane. Anyone notice how much money leaves the country in benefits from the government? While someone like me who is a democrat plantation escapee gets NOTHING except a slap in the face but it's alright, I love my country and we are righting this ship that the demons (democrats) have abused for too long along with their republican lackeys.

    Next thing that will send all these corporations into a massive tizzy is get rid of the IRS allowing illegal aliens to work with a TAX ID number. The days of the fake social are long gone. Especially the casinos in NV, the majority of their work force do not have papers, they work through the unions and they have TAX ID's. I know full well as I am exposed to this side due to my career. These illegal aliens then pump out their anchor babies, file their taxes and get every penny back via a child tax credit. They are ripping is off at every turn because they can.

  13. The main problem is not birthright citizenship but chain immigration. Under current rules, that anchor baby gets to bring in his entire family, and not just its immediate relatives, but everyone twice or three times removed. Chain immigration is not a Constitutional issue. It is a matter of immigration policy and statutory law, which means it can be changed by any Congress that has the will to fix it. The problem is the Never Trump cuckRepublicans in Congress have not wanted to fix it. They have gone along with the Democrats and left the problem to fester for years. Now with a wave of 10 thousand or more poor migrants approaching our southern border on buses and threatening to breach it, and more waves forming behind the first one, maybe the lame duck Congress will act to staunch the flow. But I doubt it.

  14. The liberal DNC will never let this fly, those babies are the future of the liberal agenda and party. With proper training and liberal education they are going to be the DNC in 20 years just lime the Islam imports will take over the EU. Without them the DNC will be as popular as the green/communist party and out of any real power.

    1. Most failure to control immigration is employer based. The people who hire them earn a lot more personally(often millions or multiples) from employing them than they pay in personal taxes. It is bipartisan fraud. To get this past the SC Trump would need one more justice as Roberts will not support a constructionist view of 14. The people who wrote it stated it would not apply to foreign nationals to get support for it but in the 60s the growing need for labor from Mexico created a blind eye to intent. Changing the constitution will not happen until Appomattox II.

    2. as Roberts will not support

      Easy peasy. Just find out what the leftists used to blackmail him to sustain Obamacare, and use that to blackmail him to support this.

  15. This is the single biggest common issue for the Trump base: illegal immigration. It makes sense to fire a shot across the globalist bow.
    Due to the lack of support by GOPe, this issue hasn't gotten much traction in the first 2 years of the Trump Admin but let's hope to see more in the 2nd half.

  16. I love it. 1 week before the midterms and the Democrats are defending the right of illegal aliens to drop anchor babies. I would not be surprised if Trump never issues an EO.

    I do expect to see Trump drop a few more bombs this week. He is a showman and he understands timing. Best of all, he doesn't have to pay for ads because the media will give him coverage for free.
