You're right there. Trump should take a serious look at the Constitution.

Maybe he should consider halting "chain migration" which is not in Constitution. Set the tone by sending Melania's family back to where they came from

Wasn't his father a "birthright citizen"?

in principle i believe in birthright usa citizenship but do not like all the abuse of it. remember a story about affluent mexicans driving to san diego from tijuana in the benz or bmw to get free medical care and delivery. they'd pretend to not have money.  child is usa citizen

I can't wait to hear the hand-wringers whine about how bad Trump is when they won't say a word about Thailand.  Try having a Thai citizen here just because two foreigners came here to squeeze one out on the pavement.

Someone else who believes that Thailand sets the standards by which other countries should be judged.

Sure it does.  What's good for one country is never good for another.  It's all about being disingenuous about Trump.

It's actually about something called the Constitution of the United States of America

I don't agree with all that trump does but this to me seems perfectly reasonable; not least because of the number of wealthy non US women arriving as  (heavily pregnant & further advanced than admitted if indeed they admitted it at all) 'Tourists' in order to deliberately exploit this loophole.

We have room to agree but you are aware, the wealthy can buy US citizenship? (investment scheme)

these people in their masses anmd with their mass birth rates destroyed white British unity.

 

Because there had been no divisions by class amongst white people in Britain? You think because coal miners' skin was dark that they weren't white?

And he's absolutely right, yet again. Birthright citizenship scheme has been so abused there is no option but to get rid of it. Blame those that abused it, and those that aided them in doing so, rather than Trump who finally applies common sense to a long festering problem.

Agree that this has been abused by some. Nonetheless, "The Donald" once again oversteps. The federal courts will slash him down. A US President cannot change the US Constitution at will. Sooo, in the end this stance will garner support from his base and end up being another example of "all hat, no cattle" as to reality. Much as history will judge his administration.
