Torres Statement on President Trump’s Unconstitutional Planned Executive Order to End Birthright Citizenship

WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Representative Norma J. Torres (D-CA) released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s plan to issue an executive order to end birthright citizenship:

“If there is one thing President Trump has made clear throughout his time in office, it is his complete disregard for the U.S. Constitution. It should come as no surprise that he believes that he has the power to undo with the stroke of a pen a right that has been enshrined in the 14th Amendment since 1868. I will not allow the President’s sustained attempts to undermine our American values and the rule of law.”
