  1. The fourteenth amendment seems to be pretty clear on this point. “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.“

    Imagine how conservatives would have reacted if Obama had declared that he was working on a plan to repeal part of the second amendment with an executive order.

    I’m looking forward to the mental gymnastics that are about to be on display from the talking heads on the right. This move forces them to choose between supporting Trump or supporting the constitution. It also forces conservatives to decide whether their declared love of the constitution is more important to them than their animus for immigrants.

      The right-wing is going to support Trump. Lindsay Graham is already drafting enabling legislation, even though Congress doesn’t have the authority either. If the United States cared about the Constitution, the first, fourth, sixth, eighth, ninth, tenth, and fourteenth Amendments wouldn’t have been evicerated. Hell, West Virginia wouldn’t be a state. And the Republicans get to discriminate against brown foreigners?! How fast can they sign up.
