Trump Vows To End Birthright Citizenship

In his latest move to destroy our democracy, President Trump has vowed to get rid of birthright citizenship. The move is meant to make it impossible for children born in the United States to undocumented parents from being citizens. He said,

“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t. We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in, has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits. It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end.

OK, first of all, we’re not the only country with birthright citizenship. Canada, to name just one example has it too. Secondly, he can’t take it away with an executive order. The right of citizenship if you are born within the United States is enshrined in the 14th amendment. Therefor, you would need a constitutional amendment to change the law. It very clearly states,

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.”

Of course, what this is really all about it keeping minorities out of the country and delegitimizing the ones that are already here. It’s all part of his plan to create a White ethnostate. Many people have said that his racist actions are Un-American. That’s not exactly true, is it? The truth is that as much as this country was founded on freedom and liberty and all that jazz, it was also very much founded on White supremacy. In a way all Trump and his cronies are doing is righting the ship of White supremacy that had gone off course in the last few decades since the civil rights movement. This is also a ploy to appeal to his thoroughly racist base ahead of the midterm elections. That is also why he is sending 5200 troops to the border. It’s all for show. He’s using our military and its resources for a publicity stunt. All of those conservatives that are always praising the troops should think about that. He knows that he can’t change the constitution with an executive order, unless he’s dumber than I think he is. He’s lying…which is kind of his thing. But if the Democrats don’t win next week he’s going to try and do this and the Republicans in Congress aren’t going to stop him.

I’m appealing to you, my brothers and sisters, to go out and vote on Tuesday. This isn’t a regular election. We are fighting for our right and ability to stay in this country as Latinos. Make no mistake, of all the minorities Trump hates he might hate us the most. Latinos usually have very low numbers on election days compared to other groups. Let’s prove them wrong and get out the vote.
