We’re looking at that very seriously — birthright citizenship,” the president said to reporters outside the White House. “Where you have a baby on our land — you walk over the border, have a baby. Congratulations, the baby is now a US citizen. We’re looking at it very, very seriously. “

US president Donald Trump on Thursday said his administration was “seriously” looking at ending the right of citizenship for babies born to non-citizens, a 140-year-old constitutionally mandated law that anti-immigrant groups allege has been abused by undocumented immigrants and those involved in so-called “birth tourism”.

Trump had called for its revocation as a candidate for the White House and then announced last October he intended to do it through an executive order.

“We’re looking at that very seriously — birthright citizenship,” the president said to reporters outside the White House. “Where you have a baby on our land — you walk over the border, have a baby. Congratulations, the baby is now a US citizen. We’re looking at it very, very seriously. “

“It’s — it’s, frankly, ridiculous,” he added.
