GRAHAM ON BOARD: Sen. Graham Backs Trump, Will Introduce Bill to Curb ‘Birthright’ Citizenship

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.30.18

Sen. Lindsey Graham threw his full support behind President Trump’s new plan to curb “birthright citizenship” to non-residents throughout the United States Tuesday, saying he will introduce similar legislation in the coming days.

Graham posted his endorsement on social media just hours after the Commander-in-Chief confirmed he was preparing an executive order to limit the “ridiculous” practice of handing out US citizenship to anyone born in the country.

“Finally, a president willing to take on this absurd policy of birthright citizenship,” tweeted Graham. “In addition, I plan to introduce legislation along the same lines as the proposed executive order from President @realDonaldTrump.”

The President confirmed the potential policy in a recent interview with Axios, saying officials are reviewing the long-recognized understanding of the 14th Amendment; which 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.”

RAHM RIPS TRUMP: Chicago Mayor Slams the President for Birthright ‘Election Nonsense’

Outgoing Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel slammed President Trump on social media this week; saying his plans to curb “birthright citizenship” for non-residents was nothing more than “midterm election nonsense.”

Emanuel ripped the Commander-in-Chief just hours after Trump confirmed his administration was preparing an executive order to limit “birthright citizenship” for non-residents and non-citizens throughout the United States.

“Please. I know election season catnip when I see it. The President doesn’t have this authority, but he does have an interest in dividing the country and riling up his base. This is midterm election nonsense,” tweeted the Chicago mayor.

Rahm’s comments come in the wake of a deadly series of shootings that stunned Chicago over the Halloween weekend; injuring over 40 and leaving at least five residents dead in the nation’s third largest city.

REPORT: Trump Planning Executive Order to Curb ‘Birthright’ Citizenship for 'Non-Citizens'

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.30.18

President Trump confirmed this week that his administration is considering an executive order aimed at curbing “birthright citizenship” for babies of non-citizens; a move likely to spark a major showdown between the White House and the courts.

The President confirmed the potential policy in a recent interview with Axios, saying officials are reviewing the long-recognized understanding of the 14th Amendment; which 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.”

“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” Trump said. “You can definitely do it with an Act of Congress. But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order.”

“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,” he added.
