President Trump is now facing backlash from both the left and the right after vowing to end birthright citizenship for illegal aliens if elected to the nation’s highest office again in 2024.
“As part of my plan to secure the border on Day 1, I will sign an executive order making it clear to federal agencies that, under the correct interpretation of the law, the future children of illegal aliens will not receive birthright citizenship,” declared Trump in a campaign video released on Tuesday, May 30th. In his announcement, Trump rightfully attacked the Biden administration for their refusal to secure the border, stating, “My policy will choke off a major incentive for continued illegal immigration, deter more migrants from coming, and encourage many of the aliens Joe Biden has unlawfully let into our country to go back to their home countries.”
The concept of “Birthright Citizenship” in America originates from a fundamental misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which grants citizenship to anyone “born or naturalized in the United States.”
However, constitutional scholars hold differing opinions regarding the individuals to whom this section applies. Although a ban on birthright citizenship would hypothetically override the Constitution, Trump remains firm in his promise to end the third world migrant invasion and protect Americans, despite the consequence. Nonetheless, TFSB maintains its steadfast stance that this provision exclusively pertains to children of American citizens rather than anyone who happens to be born in the United States regardless of citizenship or legal status.
TFSB called on the Texas Legislature in our priorities for this past 88th legislative session to challenge faulty judicial precedent on this topic by presenting a correct interpretation of the 14th Amendment to the nation’s highest court, clarifying that the citizenship clause of the 14th amendment applies to children of Americans only. Representative Steve Toth (R-The Woodlands) authored HB 3612 to achieve just that! Unfortunately, it did not receive so much as a committee hearing in the Texas House.
The United States is one of only thirty-three countries that offer birthright citizenship to anyone born in the country, regardless of parental citizenship. Many serious nations prohibit this practice to further safeguard their nation’s sovereignty, immigration system, and culture.
With millions of illegals unceasingly coming across our border with the promise of the “American Dream,” putting a stop to this free-admission citizenship would not only guarantee true Americans the opportunity to, once again, live in a safe nation not dominated by the third world but also send a message to economic migrants that America is for Americans. Therefore restoring a birthright long promised to ancestral Americans: the chance to once again live in a safe and free nation, with a government that acts in the interest of its citizens, rather than the narrow special interests of the elite.
The United States is not merely an economic zone; we are a nation with a distinct heritage, culture, history, and identity that must be preserved for the longevity and future of our country. Our laws should reflect this principle.
