Trump vows to strip children of immigrants from automatic citizenship

Former US President Donald Trump has announced an executive order to end automatic citizenship for children of undocumented immigrants and “born tourists”.

He vowed that winning the 2024 election would be his first term in the White House.

In a video recorded from his home in Palm Beach, Florida, he said: “As part of my plan to secure the border, on the first day of my new term, I will sign an executive order that makes it clear to federal agencies. A proper interpretation of the law is that future children of illegal immigrants do not automatically acquire U.S. citizenship.”

Trump will instruct federal agencies to require at least one parent to be a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident for children born in the U.S. to automatically become U.S. citizens.

Children of those who do not meet that requirement are not automatically granted citizenship, but may not be “eligible for passports, Social Security numbers or certain taxpayer-funded welfare benefits.”

With the move, Trump, one of six candidates running in the 2024 Republican primary, wants to end “a significant boost to illegal immigration.”

It will scare off the outlaws

He noted: “This will prevent more immigrants from coming in and encourage the return of many of the aliens that Joe Biden (US President) has illegally allowed into our country to return to their home countries.”

A report from Trump’s Agenda47 group said the decree, which he would sign on his first day in the White House in 2025 if voters give him a second term in 2024, also targets “born tourists.”

“Each year tens of thousands of foreign nationals fraudulently enter the United States in the final weeks of their pregnancies for the sole purpose of obtaining US citizenship for their children,” the report said.

Agenda 47 says the order, which Trump would issue on his first day in the White House if he wins the 2024 election, is part of a broader strategy to fully secure the U.S. border with Mexico.

The campaign team later lists “hundreds of executive actions, proclamations and presidential memos on border security and immigration” that Trump has implemented while in the White House.

“They’re coming in millions and millions and millions. They’re coming from mental institutions, they’re coming from prisons, inmates, some of the toughest, worst people you’ve ever seen,” Trump says of immigrants in his new campaign video.

The former president notes that the current US policy of granting citizenship to those born on its territory is “based on a historical myth and a deliberate misinterpretation of the law by advocates of open borders”.

Trump and DeSantis are the most popular Republican candidates in the polls, although the former has a 30-point lead over the latter.

DeSantis, who has made illegal immigration a warhorse of his campaign, recently approved one of the tougher anti-undocumented laws that sparked protests before taking effect on July 1.
