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.
