Trump just said he plans to issue a executive order terminating birthright
citizenship. The 14th amendment to the Constitution says:

"*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*.”

That seems pretty clear, however I wouldn't be a bit surprise if Trump's
new handpicked Supreme Court said a executive order like that was perfectly
constitutional and just jim dandy; but would anybody like to make the
argument that the Supreme Court would be correct in making such a decision?
