Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy has caused uproar with his radical immigration proposal. In an interview, Ramaswamy boldly declared his intention to deport American-born children of undocumented immigrants.
Unveiling the Shocking Plan
During a packed town hall meeting on a fateful Friday, Ramaswamy didn’t hold back with his radical words, proclaiming, “The family unit will be deported.”
Innocent American Citizens at Risk
These children, born on U.S. soil, are American citizens by birthright, according to the 14th Amendment.
The 14th Amendment Speaks
The 14th Amendment unequivocally states that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
Ramaswamy Stands Firm
When questioned again about the fate of these American-born children, Ramaswamy remained resolute. He affirmed, “That is correct.”
Birthright Citizenship Challenge
Like others in the conservative camp, Ramaswamy questions whether the 14th Amendment guarantees birthright citizenship.
A Troubling Legal Issue
He acknowledged that there’s ongoing legal debate about whether the child of an undocumented immigrant truly enjoys birthright citizenship. It’s a contested issue.
Not an Isolated Stand
Ramaswamy isn’t alone in this stance. Other GOP figures, including controversial Florida governor Ron Desantis, have weighed in on the 14th Amendment’s interpretation.
DeSantis’ Controversial Insinuation
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis hinted in a border policy announcement that birthright citizenship might not be given for the children of undocumented immigrants, saying it’s “inconsistent with the original understanding of the 14th Amendment.”
Trump’s Bold Promise
Former President Donald Trump also made waves by vowing to end birthright citizenship for the children of undocumented immigrants if re-elected.
A Pattern of Tough Immigration Policies
This is just the latest in Ramaswamy’s series of hardline stances on immigration. The 38-year-old rising star in the Republican Party has been vocal about his plans.
A Strong Military Presence
Ramaswamy has previously advocated deploying the U.S. military to the Southern and Northern borders, calling the immigration crisis an “Invasion on US soil.”
Controversial Use of Drone Strikes
He even expressed a willingness to employ drone strikes against Mexican drug cartels in a move that shocked many.
Immigration in the Spotlight
With immigration becoming a focal point in American politics, Ramaswamy’s proposal adds fuel to an already raging fire.
Legal Challenges Loom
Experts predict that if such a policy were implemented, it would face numerous legal challenges due to the clear language of the 14th Amendment, but Ramaswamy thinks otherwise.
Questioning the 14th
Ramaswamy argued, “There are legally contested questions under the 14th Amendment of whether the child of an illegal immigrant is indeed a child who enjoys birthright citizenship.”
Deporting American-born children could have far-reaching consequences, affecting thousands of innocent lives.
