I’m thrilled that President Donald Trump is addressing the birthright citizenship abuse that the long outdated 14th Amendment inflicts on our nation.

The 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868 to ensure former slaves and their children were granted citizenship. I highly doubt the Reconstruction Era lawmakers of the day had this institutional abuse in mind, which just weakens our sovereignty and makes us a laughingstock around the world.

Trump is right on this issue, and every sane American knows it. I fully support him signing an executive order that abolishes this long outdated amendment. If it’s legally challenged, I’d be happy to leave it in the hands of the newly updated Supreme Court to decide. Does anyone wonder why Trump didn’t back down on his pick of Brett Kavanaugh for the highest court? He already had this move lined up on his Make America Great Again agenda.
