In a recent interview Current U.S. President Donald Trump stated that he wants to use an executive order to challenge citizenship of people born on United States soil.

The new law would go directly against the 14th Amendment which allows anyone born on U.S. ground to be a citizen automatically. Constitutional Law professor Garrett Epps says, “Here we have a situation where the Constitution is quite clear and the Supreme Court has interpreted it that way.” This leads Epps to believe that the Supreme Court will automatically declare the law unconstitutional.

Despite this President Trump says he has no intention of halting progress and assures the law is in progress.
