Donald Trump’s latest election promise has sent Democrats running for the hills

Donald Trump has made many election promises that terrify Democrats. But this most recent one will completely unravel their secret plan.

And Trump’s latest election promise has sent Democrats running for the hills.

In a stirring address released via social media, former President Donald Trump announced a comprehensive plan aimed at ending what he terms “citizenship tourism” and addressing the broader issue of illegal immigration.

Trump, who has been a vocal critic of current immigration policies, outlined his intentions to issue an executive order that would fundamentally alter the landscape of birthright citizenship in the United States.

“As part of my plan to secure the border on day one in my new term in office, I will sign an executive order making clear to federal agencies that, under the correct interpretation of the law, going forward, the future children of illegal immigrants will not receive automatic citizenship,” Trump declared in the video.

Trump’s proposed executive order seeks to deny automatic citizenship to children born in the United States to illegal immigrants. This move is grounded in his belief that current policies surrounding birthright citizenship serve as a magnet for illegal immigration.

He argues that by eliminating automatic citizenship for children of illegal immigrants, the United States can significantly reduce the incentives that drive illegal immigration.

“Birthright citizenship, as it stands, encourages illegal immigration. It’s a loophole that must be closed to protect our nation’s sovereignty and the integrity of our immigration system,” Trump stated.

One of the more controversial aspects of Trump’s plan is its aim to end “birth tourism.” This practice, according to Trump, involves individuals from around the world coming to the United States with the primary intention of giving birth on American soil, thereby securing U.S. citizenship for their children.

“Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the planet squat in hotels for their last few weeks of pregnancy to illegitimately and illegally obtain U.S. citizenship for the child, often to later exploit chain migration to jump the line,” Trump asserted. By requiring at least one parent to be a citizen or legal resident, Trump believes this practice can be effectively curbed.

The proposed executive order is expected to face significant legal challenges, particularly concerning the interpretation of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The 14th Amendment states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” This has traditionally been interpreted to mean that any child born on U.S. soil is automatically granted citizenship.

Critics argue that Trump’s proposal is unconstitutional and that the 14th Amendment’s guarantees cannot be altered through executive action alone.

Legal experts predict that any such order would quickly be contested in court, setting the stage for a potentially protracted legal battle.

However, Trump, his supporters, and many Americans believe that the original intent of the 14th Amendment has been misinterpreted and that it should not apply to the children of illegal immigrants.

They argue that the amendment was intended to grant citizenship to freed slaves, not to anyone born on American soil regardless of their parents’ legal status.

Trump’s announcement is a direct response to what he describes as President Biden’s “mass amnesty” policies. Under the Biden administration, pathways to citizenship have been made more accessible, with recent executive orders allowing nearly 1.5 million illegal immigrants to cross the border into the United States each year.

“The Biden administration’s policies have thrown open the floodgates to illegal immigration. We need strong, decisive action to protect our borders and our nation’s future,” Trump said. He emphasized that his plan would not only address the immediate crisis but also ensure a long-term solution to illegal immigration.

Should Trump’s executive order come to fruition, it would represent one of the most significant shifts in U.S. immigration policy in decades. Supporters argue that it would restore the rule of law and protect American jobs and resources from being strained by illegal immigration.

“This is about fairness, about ensuring that those who play by the rules and come here legally are not undermined by those who circumvent the system,” said a spokesperson from Trump’s campaign.

Donald Trump’s announcement marks a pivotal moment in the ongoing debate over immigration in the United States. His plan to end birthright citizenship and tackle “citizenship tourism” is a bold move that underscores his commitment to securing the nation’s borders and addressing illegal immigration head-on.

While the proposed executive order will undoubtedly face significant legal challenges, it reflects a broader effort to redefine the parameters of American citizenship and immigration policy. As the nation looks ahead to the next presidential election, immigration remains a key issue that will shape the political landscape and the future of the United States.
