Vivek Ramaswamy Calls for an End to Birthright Citizenship

Militarize the southern border, stop funding sanctuary cities and end foreign aid to Mexico and Central America to end the incentives to come across,” Ramaswamy said before adding, “but I do go a step further.”

“I favor ending birthright citizenship for the kids of illegal immigrants in this country,” Ramaswamy declared. “Now the left will howl about the Constitution and the 14th Amendment. The difference between me and them is I’ve actually read the 14th amendment, and what it says is that all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the laws and jurisdiction thereof, are citizens.”

So nobody believes that the kid of a Mexican diplomat in this country enjoys birth right citizenship, not a judge or legal scholar in this country will disagree with me on that. Well, if the kid of a Mexican diplomat doesn’t enjoy birthright citizenship, then neither does the kid have an illegal migrant who broke the law to come here,” Ramaswamy added.

“And as the father of two sons, it is hard for me to look them in the eye and say you have to follow the law when our own government fails to follow its own laws,” he continued. “That’s how we really go the distance and solve this problem and restore the rule of law in the United States of America, because that is part of what it even means to be an American.”
