Former President Donald Trump is seeking reelection, which might set up a rematch between himself and former President Joe Biden. On Tuesday, he issued his most recent campaign pledge to halt “automatic citizenship” for kids of illegal immigrants.
On Tuesday, Trump said that if he is re-elected as president in 2024, he will run on a platform to remove birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants.
Trump promised to do so on day one of his presidency by signing an executive order. According to Trump, federal officers will now be instructed that regardless of where they were born, the correct understanding of the legislation does not provide citizenship to the offspring of illegal immigrants.
Trump stated in a Twitter video that Joe Biden had initiated an unlawful foreign invasion by permitting a historic number of undocumented immigrants to enter the United States. Millions of individuals who cross the border illegally will have children who are automatically U.S. citizens.
He added that this policy rewards those who break the regulations of the United States.
Trump has said that the current arrangement provides a major inducement for illegal immigration.
Under President Biden, the number of people crossing the border illegally between the United States and Mexico skyrocketed.
Since Biden assumed office, the number of border interactions monitored by U.S. Customs and Border Protection has increased from about 100,000 per month to well over 200,000. CBP recorded more than 230,000 monthly interactions in the latter half of 2022 and the first months of 2023.
Trump went on to warn that his executive order will additionally target “birth tourism,” in which foreign women travel to the United States when they are in their last stages of pregnancy so that their babies may be born there and become American citizens.
Trump has said that a person must have one parent be a citizen of the United States, or be a legal resident in order to be eligible for citizenship.
We shall protect our borders and regain our independence.
