Executive orders can not overrule the Constitution; it takes an amendment passed by two-thirds of each house of Congress and ratified by three-fourths of state legislatures to change the Constitution.
So-called legal scholars on the right contend that the subordinate clause "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" has been misread, and that our Founders did not intend to give citizenship to temporary citizens or noncitizens. It would be absurd to apply the order to a past date. Some illegal aliens may consent to be under United States jurisdiction after they arrive, but consent is a two-way street. They nearly always turned those farms into success stories that incurred the jealousy of white farmers, who resented how Japanese immigrant farmers succeeded while they often did not. They're feeding him fake news.
Did it guarantee that everyone born on US soil is a USA citizen? Citizens can run for certain offices provided they meet specific qualifications and are entitled to the "privileges of and immunities" of other citizens. Experts pointed out that Trump's promise to deny citizenship to people born on U.S. land flies in the face of hundreds of years of judicial precedent and is not likely to be accepted by the courts. "And it has to end". In effect, his birthright to U.S. citizenship was valid because his parents were recognized as legal residents.
It's ridiculous indeed, and a legal loophole being exploited for long, that some women visit America for the sole objective to give birth, and then return home, with their new-born having a USA citizenship certificate, to be used later on in life.
Anti-immigrant advocates fantasize that that this policy entices foreigners to come and bear "anchor babies" who will ensure them safe haven. If Trump had his way, they, like their parents, would be consigned to unlawful status. All the child will ever need to prove American citizenship is a birth-certificate showing a location of birth somewhere in the United States of America.

About 55% of those children live with one undocumented parent or two undocumented parents. Not every country has birthright citizenship, but in the United States if you're born or naturalized, no matter who you are, no matter what your blood is, you can exercise your citizenship right. Back in 2015, he expressed that he doesn't think people born in the U.S.to undocumented immigrants should be considered citizens. What about all those legal residents on an H-1B, H-4, F-1, L-1, J-1 or other visas who are expecting a baby in the United States, or are trying to have one? Legal scholars agreed that the plan is unconstitutional; a president can not amend the Constitution through executive action.
SIMON: Context is important here, and we asked two historians to remind us how the 14th Amendment to the Constitution came to be. "So under this executive order, his own son wouldn't be an American citizen". When you cease arguing the Second Amendment wasn't meant to allow ownership of so-called "assault rifles", I'll cease arguing that "birthright citizenship" doesn't apply to illegal aliens.
Clearly, comprehensive immigration reform is needed, as are more secure borders and more immigration courts to process those seeking asylum and to deport those without legitimate claims. The truth is that at least 30 other countries around the world recognize a right to birthright citizenship, including most of our neighbors in the Western hemisphere. So they have an ingenious idea: Create more of them. Break the family up?
