The #BirthrightCitizenship is obviously a stunt to rile up Trump's racist base, which is disgusting in and of itself.

To capitalize on fearmongering, racism, and xenophobia at the potential expense of so many Americans and their families is deplorable.
There is real concern given how Stephen Miller has led the WH charge to chip away at protections for immigrants and anyone else who isn't white in this country.

Historically, the removal of birthright citizenship has historical antecedents in places like Nazi Germany
However, the coverage of the constitutionality/viability of such a proposal has been insane.

The Constitution is completely clear on this matter through the 14th Amendment.

Trump cannot end birthright citizenship through an EO and reporting like he can is irresponsible.
I often think abt @sarahkendzior's discussions on how dangerous it is for the media to act as stenographers in light of rising authoritarianism.

Promoting Trump's lies w/o fact-checking as well as bending to inaccurate bothsiderism is to be complicit in the spread of propaganda
Once again, with all this in consideration, you can't discuss this proposed EO without the context of the white supremacy upon which this country was founded and the intensity with which Trump and the GOP are trying to bring about policies of white nationalism.
