Skip to comments.Trump forcing liberals to debate whether amendments actually mean what they say. Brilliant.

The 4-D chess just never stops with this guy. 😏
What time is President Trump speaking today????
Liberals have been questioning what the 2nd Amendment says for years....
There will be no real debate.
There will be nothing but Trump bashing (par for the course), as some fodder is better than others and this will make good material. No one on any of the lefty MSM punditry sources are going to seriously bring up any time the leftists policy makers turn the constitution into a..... what do they call it.... ‘living document’. Do you really think they will outline all the times people’s constitutional rights are infringed in the name of leftist ideals? psh
It’s funny but if Trump is all those things the dims, and the RINO’ that love them,say he is...
he sure is out maneuvering them every step of the way
BTW, this makes us hipocrites too, not just them.
If you don’t like the amended rights, amend them. Obama showed that executive power is a real threat to constitution rights.
The funny too... because a significant number do not know what gender they are.
THAT’S funny too... because a significant number do not know what gender they are.
It's the only way Liberals can progress, they need to obfuscate, confuse, change word meanings etc.
I disagree, although there should be a law to clarify the application of the phrase “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” (quoted from memory - forgive me if it’s not exact).
This EO would be a clarification of how to apply the amendment, and is completely within the expressed intent of the people that wrote the amendment. When Obama created DACA, he instructed prosecutors to implicitly created a protected status for kids brought across the border, in contravention of the actual meaning and intent of the law.
By instructing the administrative arms of the government to apply the law as actually written, President Trump is faithfully executing the law - not breaking it.
If he were contravening the actual amendment, then I would agree on the need to be hypocritical to support the move.
That is the correct, and pertinent, phrase.
Illegal aliens are no more AND subject to the jurisdiction thereof than an armed invader would be.
Yes, unlike all the others before him, he makes these people come out of the woodwork and expose themselves.
8 years ago, Obama and the other democrats were four square for the wall and closed borders. Now the opposite.
for years, democrats would run on lies. Now their socialistic policies are exposed for what they are.
People with common sense are noticing this, esp young smart people, black and white.
I knew something had changed when I was watching Live at the Apollo one night a few months ago. A young black comic was on stage. Right out of the gate, he starts on Trump. He was booed off so fast your head would spin.
Minorities know they’ve been given jive talk by the democrats for years. Won’t work anymore.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
If you’re born in the US, or naturalized, you’re a citizen.
“Subject to jurisdictions” is mostly redundant, but a legalize clarification to make sure that if any jurisdictions of the United States pretty much counts, or in other words, ‘don’t try to exclude certain jurisdictions under this umbrella’
“This EO would be a clarification of how to apply the amendment, and is completely within the expressed intent of the people that wrote the amendment.
By instructing the administrative arms of the government to apply the law as actually written, President Trump is faithfully executing the law - not breaking it.”
Perfect. Well said.
Your interpretation disagrees with the author of the amendment, who stated it was not intended to apply to illegal aliens.
The liberal motto.
You are dead wrong. The author said what he meant, and it was NOT for people here illegally to confer citizenship upon their children. Frankly, anyone who knows and ignores the history of this amendment is a propagandist for anarchy.
a child born to parents who have not surrendered citizenship in another country or applied to the US for American citizenship are not subject to the jurisdiction of the US
Dual citizenship is a liberal construct
