Limited Powers of Government

My guess is that an Executive Order is insufficient for this plan.
Speaking outside the White House Wednesday, Trump told reporters he plans to do away with the Constitutional right, which he called “frankly ridiculous,” through an executive order. This isn’t the first time he’s made that claim: In 2018, he told Axios he had plans to issue an executive order preventing automatic citizenship for the children of non-citizens, including undocumented immigrants, but nothing came of it.

“We’re looking at that very seriously, birthright citizenship, where you have a baby on our land, you walk over the border, have a baby — congratulations, the baby is now a U.S. citizen.”
That's not a terrible idea, but the power of the pen is not unlimited -- and good that it's not.

It's a good reminder that we don't want to encourage the bastards to have more power, even when we agree substantially with one of 'em.
