U.S. President Donald Trump has revealed that his administration is seriously considering an executive order to end birthright citizenship.
Mr Trump disclosed this to reporters when leaving the White House for the U.S. state of Kentucky.
He said: “We’re looking at that very seriously.
“Birthright citizenship, where you have a baby on our land – walk over the border, have a baby, congratulations, the baby’s now a U.S. citizen.
“It’s, frankly, ridiculous.” he added
Mr Trump promised ending the birthright citizenship during his 2016 presidential campaign and once revived the idea last year, according to a report of The Hill.
The U.S. federal government has sought various ways to curb illegal and legal immigration since Mr Trump was sworn in in January 2017.
