Why not just eliminate “citizenship” altogether?

Aren't we all sovereign individuals?

I so agree with him, however I don't think he can do that on his own. It needs to be brought up before the Supreme Court as birthright citizenship was never intended for babies born from illegal aliens on our soil.
Nah. United States vs. Wong Kim Ark establishes birthright citizenship as the law of the land.

Right now he is certainly throwing epic amounts of poop against the wall to find something that sticks.

Trump doesn't "seriously consider" anything. He doesn't know how.

In 10 minutes he'll reverse himself, contradict himself or just lie, so it doesn't matter.

He sees some idiocy on Fox News and he "seriously considers" it.

How about Trump starts with Trump Tower in Sunny Isles, FL? It is a Russian anchor baby pit stop. Why doesn't Trump care? We know why. He cares about nothing but himself, and he'll tell the gullible whatever they want to hear.

If you believe he cares about this, you really don't get him at all. He's just throwing it out there to excite the following.

There's no excuse for anyone not wanting to end birthright citizenship for illegals.

No excuse, but their agendas are clear. They either have ethnic ties to Latinos who make up the largest group of illegal aliens in our country or are Democrats that want to increase the minority population in our country via anchor babies because they know most of them will vote Democrat when they turn 18.

So, screw the constitution. Got it.

So true or they hate Americans and America and know allowing a bunch of poor, third worlders to stay and supporting them will cause dystopia.

Were you born to a citizen or at least someone of legal status? Then you're a citizen.
