  2. Marie Espinoza says:

    Doesn’t Congress have to vote on this BEFORE this becomes law?
    I’m sure this presents a constitutional challenge.

    • Jettabusy Jackson says:

      @Enthar Gaming Daca was an executive order and President Obama didnt have the right without a vote from Congress he really shouldnt of promised the Dreamers papers when they were illegally here

    • Jettabusy Jackson says:

      @Tom O I dont think the 14th amendment was written for illegal immigrants from other countries and the 14th ammendment was fought for by black people so hmnn what rights have the Brown people fought for?

    • Robert Ballard says:

      So we dont have a problem stepping on the first second fifth amendments but somehow this is too unconstitutional lol

    • South Efrikan says:

      No more anchor babies, Maria. About time, too.

  3. Im Just John says:

    As a Republican, I am against this law… Our 14th amendment clearly goes against it

    • Jay 156 says:

      You obviously don’t understand the 14th. Don’t feel bad though, neither did the lawmakers when they extended birthright citizenship to the children of illegal aliens.

    • mermaid madness says:

      Did anyone on this thread hear what was said? AMERICAN SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE BABIES OUTSIDE THE US- THEIR BABIES WILL NOT BE US CITIZENS. Holy crap. The constitution means absolutely nothing. Might as well just burn the thing.

    • Mike Flores says:

      Don’t vote Republican 2020

    • Jose Balderas says:

      all the things trump did another president is gonna come and whipe out I can’t wait for that to happen

  5. Chinwe says:

    I’m I the only one noticing the pattern when a president’s term is almost over, new rules and laws come out???

    • DouglassRobert says:

      @Zombie Turd Yeah, we’re the new Roman Empire, aren’t we? As long as we have our bread and circuses we won’t think about what’s really going down, will we?

    • big daddy 21 says:

      @David Thaler you’re a dumbass pole smoker

    • Zombie Turd says:

      @DouglassRobert we’ll just keep looking down at our phones… Facebook has all the answers…or is it Google…or Alexia….o wait…it’s Twitter

  6. Tenzack YOGI says:

    Is it an executive order? Or threat to US citizens?

  7. Ming says:

    When the most powerful nation in the world sees babies as a threat, we’re in trouble.

  8. Edward Miessner says:

    What the Trump administration is proposing and undoubtedly will implement (or try to) requires an act of Congress in the first case and a Constitutional amendment in the second.

  9. Meta Ren says:

    This sounds like an onion article

  10. Zhuowei Wang says:

    Mr Ambassador, I’m sure your son/daughter shall have no issue applying for a US Visa.

    • Zhuowei Wang says:

      @Pat Micucci No, Mr ambassador, I don’t recommend your wife leaving the embassy. No, she should not use a local hospital. Or your son/daughter will lose their US citizenship.

    • spencer s says:

      @Pat Micucci Some people live in a delusion that think embassies, are some kind of self contained city with all services.

    • Sidhanth Mishra says:

      @Pat Micucci So should the ambassadors child need to be born on the embassy grounds to qualify as a US citizen? What are you smoking ?

    • Vincent Cheung says:

      They Law said they won’t automatically obtain citizenship so most likely they will implemene a clause for it. This is a 1 minute soundbite that gave little information on the complete law so lets not jump to conclusions and assume they cant be citizens.

  11. TobiasBoon says:

    I can get behind the tourist for citizenship but two parents with citizenship? Really?

    • glowwy 54 says:

      @Just Sayin’ but they’re citizens soo doesnt say illegal

    • E9 Greatness says:

      @LIN TRAN you have to be specific not all foreigners…because people from mexico try to come dont make it great…you dont expect people in norway,finland,sweden,Australia and some great countries to come to the USA when they pay more in their counties and they got free health care…you only got people from third world countries coming into America and thats why you all feel you are great

    • Jones Jones says:

      @LIN TRAN , only for work, they have steady works. But and their ows Countries Better Lives, Family Oriented, Respect, Love, Humanity.

    • xukxj0nny says:

      @John Smith When a US citizen has a child outside of the US, the parent has to have a certain amount of physical presents in the US. Its something like they must have lived in the US for at least 5 years and 2 of those years after their 14th birthday before the child can derive citizenship from them. This isn’t really a new law. Children born on a military base outside of the US is actually considered being born in the US. so it will not affect military members. Just US citizens that haven’t lived in the US for many years.

    • South Efrikan says:

      E9 Greatness You forgot that the US is a nation of immigrants and not only do they know how much the rest of the world sucks, they moved to the US because it sucked less than you.

  12. Toasty McGrath says:

    Uh, the Constitution is clear. ICE has no ability to change this.

  13. CosmosPrivateer says:

    I would just prefer to be a being living on planet Earth. At birth I don’t have a choice to be any where else.

    • Lotus Auer says:

      CosmosPrivateer exactly, everyone saying “if you don’t like it, then leave” as if we all have the capacity to just go anywhere from our birth country.

    • lambdachi493 says:

      @Lotus Auer you do, your like, free man to go anywhere.

    • Lotus Auer says:

      lambdachi493 yeah, if you have a decent living, and the money, and the time spent learning another language, and the permission of the other country. Unless your insisting people illegally immigrate out of America? And if you think every human on earth has the ability to leave their country or continent if the “try hard enough” that’s just delusional, just like in capitalism even though everyone has the chance to work hard to make more money, only some people will actually end up getting more while others stay stuck at the bottom.

    • lambdachi493 says:

      @Lotus Auer oh no! You mean you actually have to work! No no no that just won’t do at all!

    • AstronomyToday says:

      That’s called sovereign citizenship; a legit thing you can apply for.

  14. Shitty Anime Lover says:

    For someone who cares a lot about the 2nd amendment they seem to be ignoring the 14th

    • John Flores says:

      @Pat Micucci Finally! Someone who has sense!

    • Rhaspun says:

      A friend of mines went through hoops to make sure his daughter was born on US soil. He was part of the security detail at the embassy in China. He met a Chinese woman and ended up marrying her. His superiors made arrangements to have a helicopter take him and his wife onto a US carrier for the birth of his daughter. He’s now back in the US and working here for a few years while his daughter is pursuing her college degree. Then it’s back to China were he and his wife have property. He was covering any potential problems and protecting his daughter.

    • Emp United says:

      @Jay 156 Actually they did… but didn’t.

    • lambdachi493 says:

      Nah, the constitution only applies to citizens.

  15. Wilo Musicc says:

    And yet again attacking our troops and their families.

    The other visitor yes make sense.

    The reason we are not voting for him in 2020

    Disrespectful to my my grandfather who served in the us air force..

  16. Lisa Lotwin says:

    What a enormous slap in the face to all in the armed forces and citizens abroad. They all pay taxes don’t they?

  17. Wyatt Earb says:

    So how’d you end up in this country?
    Man: Idk …..but I was told that both my parents are American .

    • kike amatore says:

      Well if you were born in the Americas continent you are a American . US citizen is another thing brother .

    • Al Yi says:

      I’m American Central American?☺????????

    • comochinganconesto says:

      @Al Yi Don’t know if sarcasm, but many people in Latin American call US Citizens Estadounidenses and not Americans. I think, though I’m not sure, that it might have something to do with United States Citizen not rolling off the tongue as easily in English and American being the de-facto and preferred name in. Then, being adopted by the rest of the world as an anglicism.

    • Al Yi says:

      @comochinganconesto itl it’s not sarcasm it’s actually correct geographically speaking you guys are United states “we do use that Spanish word which specifically means individuals from the United States but it’s not a form of disrespect not at all but if they call you Gringo that’s another story geographically speaking we are all americans

  18. Matt Alibozek says:

    This means NOTHING… You can’t change the 14th Amendment genius…

    • Brandon Fontenot says:

      What makes you so sure?

    • McNally says:

      @Brandon Fontenot Article V of the Constitution prescribes how an amendment can become a part of the Constitution. While there are two ways, only one has ever been used. All 27 Amendments have been ratified after two-thirds of the House and Senate approve of the proposal and send it to the states for a vote. Then, three-fourths of the states must affirm the proposed Amendment.

      The other method of passing an amendment requires a Constitutional Convention to be called by two-thirds of the legislatures of the States. That Convention can propose as many amendments as it deems necessary. Those amendments must be approved by three-fourths of the states.

      “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.”

  19. Derek L. says:

    I like how he glossed over the rule about kids BORN TO U.S. CITIZENS who work for the Government or in the military won’t be automatic U.S. Citizens.

    • Chrysalis Natural says:

      Right? He kept emphasizing the part his viewers might be happy with, because the other part is the most unpatriotic, disrespectful thing that could be done to service members–basically deny their blood because of their sacrifice.

  20. David Thaler says:

    Because nothing says “Thank you for your service.” quite like putting your children at risk for deportation.

    • SonicYouth1979 says:

      @lambdachi493 He talking about our vetererns and service members dumb dumb

    • fkujakedmyname says:

      the conservative way

    • xukxj0nny says:

      This will not affect military members at all

    • Really N***a says:

      I don’t believe it applies to our service men and women, Trump isn’t that stupid. I believe it only applies to citizens who our in a different country on vacation or just just moved to a different country all together. The news just clumped it all together like this to make you assume service members are included.

    • Travis Luttrull says:

      Military bases outside the US are considered US land. If a baby is born from a service member on an out of country base, that child becomes a citizen just as it would on the main land
