The citizenship proposal would inevitably spark a long-shot legal battle over whether the president can alter the long-accepted understanding that the 14th Amendment grants citizenship to any child born on USA soil, regardless of his parents' immigration status.

"You obviously can not do that", Ryan told WVLK when asked by an interviewer about the President's recent comments and where he stands on "an executive order ending birthright citizenship". Responding to critics on Wednesday, he said that birthright citizenship will be abolished "one way or another". "We - House Republicans and this President - are in total agreement on the need to stop illegal immigration, to secure our border and fix our laws".

"It's in the process", Trump said.

Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, is Trump's biggest political ally in the state and has advised the White House on homeland security issues.

Reviving his support for a legally questionable theory, Trump told the Axios news website he would issue an executive order on so-called birthright citizenship, an issue that has long rankled some conservative Republicans.

He went on to say that the USA is "the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States.It's ridiculous. Birthright citizenship is a constitutional right, no less for the children of undocumented persons than for descendants of passengers of the Mayflower". "Unless the Supreme Court intends to overrule precedent that is more than 100 years old, the order will be a nullity", he said.

Trump also went far off track in asserting that the U.S.is the only country that automatically grants citizenship to anyone born in the country. "Guess what? You don't", the president told Axios' Jonathan Swan in an interview in the Oval Office.

Radio Sputnik's Fault Lines spoke with Andrew Arthur, resident fellow in Law and Policy for the Center for Immigration Studies, about the history of the legal debate around birthright citizenship and why Trump is picking this fight.

"This policy is a magnet for illegal immigration, out of the mainstream of the developed world, and needs to come to an end", he said.

There is ZERO chance either Gorsuch or Kavanaugh would find that a phone and a pen can abrogate the 14th Amendment.

"Guess again. If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with USA citizenship and guarantee a full access to all public and social services this society provides".

"But the Supreme Court of the United States has never ruled on whether or not the language of the 14th amendment, subject to the jurisdiction thereof, applies specifically to people who are in the country illegally", Pence said.
