Is birthright citizenship at risk?

Many people in Tennessee have been concerned about President Donald Trump's controversial approach to immigration. People who are immigrants themselves have become worried about their status, even if everything seems to be in place. The Trump administration is now floating a new trial balloon, although experts say it would be impossible to implement. In a press conference, Trump told reporters that his administration was examining the possibility for ending birthright citizenship. In the United States, the children of non-citizens born in the country automatically receive citizenship at birth. Despite birthright citizenship being part of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Trump labeled it "frankly ridiculous".

New policy could impact legal immigrants

Some Tennessee residents who came from another country may find it harder to get a green card or visa. A new Trump administration rule would make it possible to reject applications from those who have used public assistance. It might also result in visa or permanent resident requests being denied if applicants don't have sufficient levels of income or education. These individuals could be seen as more likely to need public assistance in the future.
