Mark Levin went on Hannity last night and defended Donald Trump’s immigration plan.
Levin, a constitutional scholar, explained that Donald Trump was right – anchor babies have no birthright citizenship.
“The Supreme Court has never ruled that babies born to illegal immigrants have citizenship.”
Levin says 14th Amendment does not apply to illegal aliens.
FOX News Insider reported:
Mark Levin said on “Hannity” tonight that the 14th Amendment does not give citizenship to children of illegal immigrants who are born in the United States.
He said that those claiming that the 14th Amendment allows birthright citizenship are dead wrong, pointing to Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution, which grants absolute power to Congress to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.
Levin explained that means that Congress – not the president, the courts or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement – has the power to regulate immigration in this regard.
“Of course Trump is right and Cruz is right and Sessions is right. They’re all right,” Levin said.
“If you want a policy of open borders, that anybody born here should become a United States citizen, you amend the Constitution. We don’t have to amend the Constitution. It says what we say it says,” Levin stated. “By statute, going forward, prospectively, Congress can in fact say … ‘No, you cannot make children of illegal aliens American citizens automatically.'”
