Outrage erupted over President Trump’s proposal to alter the concept of so-called birthright citizenship to exclude the progeny of illegal aliens through the administrative fiat of executive order.
Such a policy alteration would have been based on the interpretation that such individuals would not qualify for the status of citizenship because neither parent is “subject to the jurisdiction thereof.”
Trumps has to be given props for advancing such an innovative understanding.
However, such an issue would best be resolved through a constitutional amendment clarifying the matter.
But more importantly, regarding those up in arms over the dangers posed by executive orders, where was similar outcry regarding this sort of regulatory threat when Obama wantonly violated the law regarding so-called dreamers and now that his puppet Biden issues these edicts like mints to cover over the foul stench exuding forth from his diseased mouth?
