Be better, Paul!

After President Donald Trump said he’d look for a way to end birthright citizenship (possibly via executive order), Speaker of the House Paul Ryan wasn’t on board.

“You obviously cannot do that. You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order,” Ryan, who rarely breaks with the president, told WVLK radio. “We didn’t like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action, and obviously as conservatives, we believe in the Constitution.”

“I’m a believer in following the plain text of the Constitution, and I think in this case, the 14th Amendment’s pretty clear, and that would involve a very very lengthy Constitutional process,” Ryan said Tuesday. “I believe in interpreting the Constitution as its written, and that means you can’t do something like this via executive order.”

Ryan is set to retire from Congress come January.

Check out Trump’s words for Paul:

Trump is right. Ryan’s focus should be on retaining the House.

Women from Mexico and many, many other nations come to America by any means necessary in order to give birth.

This give’s their children American citizenship by default.

What ends up happening is the American-born kids don’t get deported and often times neither do the mothers (or fathers).

It is a system of which plenty of Americans are not fond.

About that potential executive order to end birthright citizenship.

President Trump plans to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil, he said yesterday in an exclusive interview for “Axios on HBO,” a new four-part documentary news series debuting on HBO this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Why it matters: This would be the most dramatic move yet in Trump’s hard-line immigration campaign, this time targeting “anchor babies” and “chain migration.” And it will set off another standoff with the courts, as Trump’s power to do this through executive action is debatable, to say the least.

WATCH:

The problem with the EO is that Trump may run into trouble constitutionally.

Enter South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who plans to introduce legislation to make the process easier:

Now more than ever it is absolutely vital the GOP retains both chambers of Congress in November’s midterm elections.
