    According to The Hill, he may sign an E.O. ending birthright citizenship. So undoing the 14th amendment on the matter.

    Got no problem with this, the 14th amendment is being abused; there is no way the folks who signed it into law envisioned countless people flying into the US just to give birth and claim all the benefits of being an American citizen for their offspring despite not paying any taxes or otherwise contributing to the country .

    Wonder why he never did it ? He may actually have won the election if he had signed the E.O. prior to the elections. Seems like that would have won him a lot of votes. So to the Trump supporters here, my question is : why didn't he ?

    The Trump administration has revived discussions around taking executive action targeting birthright citizenship in its final weeks before leaving office, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

    President Trump has spoken throughout his first term about ending birthright citizenship. Drafts of a possible order have been circulating for some time, and there is now internal discussion about finalizing it before the Biden administration takes over in January, sources said.

    It will take more than a executive order to change that.

    Lolol, another un winnable endeavor, it’s like him and is team sit down and go..”hmmm,let’s see what else we can lose today”.

    just like anything, I do agree there needs to be checks and balances to it..they do need to reign in the abuse. That would involve....

    comprehensive immigration reform, gasp!

    Courts will strike that down so fast that we will need a coherent theory of quantum gravity to untangle the causality implications.

    Holy fuck I hope he tries this! Even if he succeeds it will be undone in a few weeks, but the damage to the Republican Party and Trumpism will last generations.

    Burn it down, Trump!

    The SC is now packed with Conservatives. Trump had plenty of time between Barret being sworn in and the election to sign the E.O.
    Yes it would have been fought out in the courts but Trump could have used the signing of the E.O. to attrack voters.

    I'm sure all the "constitutional conservatives" here are outraged, right? Best thing about Trump is how he has exposed so much of the right.

    It's almost as if all the appeals to the Constitution were just...virtue signaling?

    It doesn't matter that they are Conservative. They are all Constitutionalists.

    And attract what voters? The election is over.

    EO’s can not change the Constitution. Period. It will take a Consitutional Amendment.

    There is a conservative grounds to overturn it in the courts.
    No they have an argument and it would work with the current justices they have

    The SC is tasked with making sure laws adhere to the constitution, full stop. They have zero power to change the constitution itself.
