In a recent interview President Donald Trump says he plans to pass an Executive Order that would directly challenge the citizenship of someone born on U.S. soil.

This new law would conflict with the 14th Amendment which allows anyone born on U.S. soil, regardless of their parents citizenship, to be considered a U.S. citizen. One 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.”

Epps believes the Supreme Court will immediately overturn this law.  Despite this, President Trump still plans to move forward and says that this law is in progress.
