Donald has decided he isn’t bound by the Constitution or the Courts. He can just issue an executive order to do whatever he wants. This time he wants to be the one who decides who and who cannot be an American citizen.
The first clause of the 14th Amendment to our Constitution reads:
"All person 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.”
Donald doesn’t like the part about “all persons born” in the U.S. automatically becoming citizens because sometimes it allows Hispanics to automatically become citizens if they are born on U.S. soil even though their parents might not be U.S. citizens themselves.
Donald’s problem is that the meaning of the citizenship clause in the 14th Amendment is established law and has been for over 120 years. The Supreme Court decided the issue in 1898 in the case of United States v. Wong Kim Ark. (See the Supreme Court opinion here: https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/169/649/). That ruling has never been overturned and forms the basis for our immigration and naturalization laws.
Most (no make that ALL) lawyers and Constitutional scholars agree that the 14th Amendment as interpreted by the Supreme Court is binding and that the only way the law can be changed is via an amendment to the Constitution.
Donald doesn’t like what our Constitution says. And, he doesn’t think he should have to go through the tedious process of amending our Constitution. In fact, he doesn’t even want to ask Congress about changing the law since some Democrats might disagree. So, Donald has decided that he will just change the law by executive decree, the Constitution be damned. After all, says Donald, I am the KING.
Nope Donald. You are not our KING. We had a KING once and got rid of him. We don’t need another one, particular not YOU.
So, what can you do to stop Donald. VOTE DEMOCRAT AND ONLY DEMOCRAT.
Donald needs to learn who is boss in the country—Us, the people.
