Trump considers ending birthright citizenship with executive order in his last weeks in office

  • President Trump is reportedly considering putting out an executive order in his final weeks in office to target birthright citizenship, according to two sources who spoke to The Hill.
  • Ending birthright citizenship — which guarantees citizenship to anyone born on US soil, regardless of the citizenship of their parents — has been something Trump’s talked about doing since his 2016 campaign.
  • Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is an example of someone who gained her citizenship this way. Her Indian mother and Jamaican father were not yet US citizens when they had her in California in 1964.
  • When reached for comment by The Hill, a White House spokesman said he wouldn’t “speculate or comment on potential executive action.”
