Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump has released his specific plan for immigration reform.
In the 6-page report titled "Immigration Reform That Will Make America Great Again," Trump is calling for an end to birthright citizenship, saying it "remains the biggest magnet for illegal immigration."

Can’t end birthright citizenship without a Constitutional Amendment and that ain’t happening.
Deporting is certainly a good start. But I simply do not believe it will happen.
I like the CLARITY of his immigration policy. Did not think I would live to see it
This is what people have been waiting for.
Most of the propaganda fed to us by both parties is concerned with the illegal aliens, foreigners who broke in, not what is good for America, and Americans.
This addresses immigration from the standpoint of the citizens.
We have been unrepresented for too long.
Go, Trump, GO!!
WHY NOT? The constitution has been interpreted many ways and many times. The Fourteenth Amendment test cases are few and misguided in my view.
I have doubts that round-ups and deportation will happen. Instead I think that E-verify will dry up jobs and that getting rid of this administration will dry up benefits by managerial direction.
What is taking place right now is encouragement of illegals by management (obongo) policy.
Congress can clarify the misinterpretation of the 14th without amending the Constitution. There is ample historical documentation that the writers of the 14th never intended it to apply to illegal aliens.
I’ll believe it when I see it.
NOBODY has even brought up the Fourteenth Amendment stupidity in forever. It has not even been on the radar screen for almost all people... they don’t even know what happens. Anchor baby is something they don’t understand or challenge. It was never meant to be the way it is being done.
Many say that birthright citizenship is NOT what was intended in the 14th Amendment, and refer to the records of the Congressional debate which addressed that. The key phrase was "subject to the laws thereof." In the 19th century, they anticipated this problem, and in the debate about the amendment it was stated that children of foreign citizens born on US soil were subject to the laws of their parents' country.
The Amendment has been deliberately misinterpreted by those who favor massive immigration and dilution of the native citizenry. 20th and 21st century transportation makes the abuse of anchor babies possible in a way that could hardly have been imagined in the years after the Civil War when the 14th was written.
Look who ALSO has a pen and phone...!!
Round ups won’t be necessary. Once enforcement begins there will be a rush to the exits. It has happened everywhere enforcement has been tried.
Free K-12 schooling for children of all illegals via a Supreme Court decision: Check Plyler v. Doe.
Birthright citizenship- via another Supreme Court decision.
Free emergency medical services- another Supreme Court decision
No school or college may ask for papers, banks open accounts for illegals. No proof of citizenship to purchase vehicles. Illegals in many states like Washington, California and Oregon are entitled to have driver’s licenses.
Trump needs to show specifically how he plans to reverse all this. Simply saying he will command the tides to recede won’t do. That’s stuff for the illiterati. We need to know how?
A lot of Americans agree with Trump on this issue.
Not really. The Supreme Court has shown us abundantly that it goes with the cultural flow. He just needs to make a big, scary wave, and they will follow. If they don't, and if he's President, he will probably ignore them. Which would be legally appropriate, actually.
Never thought I'd see it. The media is going to unleash the dogs of hell on Trump to destroy him unlike they never have before more than the media did on Sarah Palin
That's the sound of the CofC and free trader crowd's heads popping.
That would be an epic battle to say the least, with virtually every politician, everyone on wall street, K street, LaRaza, and every bureaucrat in government lined up to whine, cry, piss, and moan that the Donald is going to run their gravy train straight into the ground. And, they'll fight vehemently and use every excuse known to mankind to keep that from happening.
This will be interesting to say the least.
“Cant end birthright citizenship without a Constitutional Amendment and that aint happening.”
My understanding is that Birthright Citizenship is instituted by the Immigration and Nationality Act and not the 14th Amendment; therefore, a Constitutional amendment is not necessary.
“The media is going to unleash the dogs of hell on Trump to destroy him unlike they never have before more than the media did on Sarah Palin:
Of course I vividly remember that. Poor woman. That was just a sampling of the daily missiles the MSM did for Dubya in 8 years. A lot of peeps here hate W but he took it like a man for 8 effing years from the libs.
