Trump's bogus birthright citizenship gambit
This opinion piece by John Avlon from CNN makes these types of arguments:
- President Trump’s proposal to abolish birthright citizenship via executive order will never happen. His comments are nothing more than a “desperate midterm election Hail Mary.”
- This action would be in clear violation of the Constitution. The president’s comments illustrate the hypocrisy of Trump’s Republican base, given that the conservative movement has long hailed itself as “faithful to the vision of the Founding Fathers.”
- The concept of this executive order is absurd, and it is unacceptable for any Republican lawmaker to support it. “This is play-to-the-base panic, a classic Trump attempt to distract and deflect. Don't fall for it.”
