Skip to comments.Lindsey Graham to Introduce Bill Ending Birthright Citizenship ‘Magnet’ for Illegal Immigration
Posted on 10/30/2018 11:41:29 AM PDT by BlackFemaleArmyColonel
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) announced on Tuesday that he plans to introduce legislation ending birthright citizenship for children born to illegal immigrants on American soil, citing it as a magnet for illegal immigration.
President Donald J. Trump announced on Tuesday that he plans to draft an executive order to end birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants born in America.
Trump told Axios Jonathan Swan: But now theyre saying I can do it with just an executive order. Now, how ridiculouswe are the only country in the world where a person comes in, has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits? Its ridiculous. Its ridiculousand it has to end.
Sen. Graham cheered Trumps move against birthright citizenship, citing it as a significant magnet for illegal immigration.
Finally, a president willing to take on this absurd policy of birthright citizenship, Graham said in a statement. Ive always supported comprehensive immigration reform and at the same time the elimination of birthright citizenship.
Graham continued explaining that birthright citizenship is a foreign concept in most modern countries.
The South Carolina Republican said, The United States is one of two developed countries in the world who grant citizenship based on location of birth. This policy is a magnet for illegal immigration, out of the mainstream of the developed world, and needs to come to an end.
Eliminating birthright citizenship would prevent children born of illegal aliens would not receive citizenship status and would likely deter the practice of foreigners having anchor babies where immigrants plan to give birth to children on American soil to obtain citizenship for their children.

He’s up for reelection in 2020.
I’m starting to like this guy.
He is enjoying his newly acquired balls.
Every journey begins with the first step.
Until President Trump brought it up no one was going to do anything. Now “birthright citizenship” is a topic of conversation.
I don’t care who gets credit for ending this thing, I just want it ended.
While they are at it they need to pass a law forbidding anyone in this nation illegal from receiving any government assistance and that includes schools.
The only exception would be medical emergencies with the understanding as soon s they are discharged they are deported.
it is about time. This will stop the craziness.
You knows but it’s about damn time! Please God let this be true!
Its called leadership...from President Trump! Even in Lindsey's case, if you lead, they will follow.
California is knee deep in Chinese MATERNITY HOTELS where Chinese women are BIRTHING AMERICAN CITIZENS by the BOAT LOAD!!!
Wants Mattis' job probably.
Why is Graham doing this now? This issue has been with us for years and years and the President says he's going to take action on it. So now Graham says, "Oh wait for me. I'm going to introduce a bill to end it, too." Why did it take Trump's comments to spur him into action?
To the Honorable Senator Graham,
I don’t know what triggered your recent displays of playing hardball with the left and standing up for doing the Right Thing, But I LIKE IT!!
John McCain died. He was calling us bigots in 2007 for opposing the amnesty bill.
Lindsey Granite. I told you, when McTurd died, it’s like that scene in “Lord of the Rings” where Gandalf lifts the spell off the king of Rohan.
His master died, breaking the spell.
Another law that we need to enact is that you must be a U.S. citizen to buy property. That will initially cause the real estate market to crash as all of the foreigners will be forced to sell their holdings or become a citizen. This will then allow real Americans will be able to enter the real estate market for the first time in their lives.
Trump is a political genius. All the talk was how Republicans were terrorists and wanted to end coverage for pre-existing conditions. He just seized the narrative and forcing the Left to fight on his battlefield.
Graham has to run for re-election the same year as president Trump.
he is smart enough to realize he can’t run against Trump.
He is still a Cheap Labor Express stooge committed to amnesty for illegal aliens and their employers.
"...Lindsey Graham to introduce..."
