U.S. President Donald Trump plans to remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorised immigrants born in the United States, according to an interview excerpt released Tuesday.
Seeking to shore up support for Republicans ahead of the congressional elections next week, Trump told the Axios news website he would try to end the right of citizenship for US-born children of noncitizens and illegal immigrants.
The 14th Amendment in the US Constitution provides for "all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" to be considered as US citizens.
Afghans vote in south Kandahar's delayed elections

"It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous".
Politics or not, immigration lawyers say no president can unilaterally end citizenship rights for children of non-citizens who are born on US soil.
Revoking birthright citizenship would trigger a legal battle over whether the president has the unilateral power to change an amendment to the Constitution. "Guess what? You don't", Mr. Trump said. This is part of the anti-immigrant fervor that Trump is whipping up against Democrats in the midterm election. This has been a constitutional right to the USA citizenship for the US-born children.
Trump, who has long decried "anchor babies", said he has discussed the move with his legal counsel and believes it can be accomplished with executive action, a view at odds with the opinions of many legal scholars.
