1st Generation Citizens At Risk!!!

1st Generation Citizens At Risk!!!

Thomas Goodall, Staff

President Trump is threatening to end birthright citizenship for 1st generations citizens. Birthright citizenship is if your parents were not born within the US, but you are born within the US you are considered a citizen of America. With Trump threatening to end birthright citizenship he is threatening the 14th amendment.

The 14th amendment states that all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny any person within its jurisdiction the equal protections of the laws.


Because of the 14th amendment rights Trump is legally not allowed to end birthright citizenship, but he isn’t going to stop until he gets what he wants and he is willing to do everything in his power in order to make sure he gets what he wants.

“How ridiculous, we’re the only country in the world where a person comes in has a baby and is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all those benefits, it’s ridiculous, it’s ridiculous, and it needs to end” Trump said in an interview with CNN News.

According to CNN News we are actually one of at least thirty countries in the world with birth-right citizenship.
