President Trump is planning to sign an executive order that will demolish birthright citizenship for babies of non-citizens or illegal immigrants born on US soil.

“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States … with all of those benefits,” Trump revealed to Jonathan Swan of Axios on Monday. “It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end.”

“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” Trump asserted, standing firm on what he believes to be a much-needed adjustment to the law.

“You can definitely do it with an Act of Congress. But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order,” he continued.

The US Constitution’s 14th Amendment was ratified by Congress in 1868 as part of the civil-rights amendments after the Civil War, stating, “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.”

Trump has to run the order by the court which is likely to spark an uproar. His decision follows his aim to deploy 5,200 active duty troops to the U.S.-Mexico border by end of the week as a migrant caravan made its way north from Central America.

The full Axios interview is scheduled to air on Sunday.
