Conservatives are not going to be able to convince Trump that immigration reform is not an issue that will hurt his presidency, but there are some signs that they may be starting to understand what’s at stake.
While the Trump administration is currently weighing a number of immigration policies that could potentially affect some of the most vulnerable Americans, conservative think tanks and pundits are beginning to recognize that the Obama administration has not made immigration reform a top priority.
The American Conservatives, a conservative think tank, is now circulating an online petition that asks President Donald Trump to appoint Supreme Court justices who would uphold the constitutionality of the 14th Amendment, which guarantees that all Americans are eligible for citizenship.
“Immigration is a fundamental right, and the United States must uphold its constitutional duty to provide a path to citizenship to all of our people, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, or religion,” the petition reads.
“In the United Kingdom, the country’s largest country, the Conservative Case is strong on the grounds that all citizens should be entitled to citizenship.”
Conservative legal expert John Hinderaker, who worked on the immigration case for the Obama Justice Department, told The Huffington Post that the Trump Administration is likely looking at a handful of key issues that have been debated during the Obama Administration: 1.
The right to equal protection under the law.
In some cases, such as affirmative action programs, racial preferences, and protections against discrimination based on gender, race, religion, and sexual orientation — issues that conservatives have argued are essential to the future of American society — the Obama Administrations policies have been widely criticized.
The Conservative case is not just for the 14-year-old constitutional provision that allows Americans to vote in national elections, it is for the Constitution itself, Hinderakers told HuffPost.
The 14th amendment states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United Sates, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
Under the current administration, the Obama Department of Justice has been in a legal battle with the Trump Department over the constitution and whether the 14 in the 14, or 14th, should be included in the definition of citizenship.
On Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would not be issuing any new guidelines on immigration in the meantime.
The new administration, he said, will take a “wait-and-see” approach to any new policies.
Sessions added that he will be consulting with immigration experts and other members of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to determine the best way to deal with immigration in 2017.
The enforcement of the Constitution.
In other words, Trump is unlikely to consider any new laws that might be written by Congress to alter or rescind the 14 Amendment.
In the Obama years, the administration had argued that the 14 amendment was not about the 14 words, but about the meaning of the words in the Constitution, according to The Washington Post.
According to the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the language, the 14 and the 14ths are synonymous.
In order to make the 14s part of the definition, the courts would have to decide whether the words were meant to apply to all Americans, or only to a subset of Americans.
If the court said the word “nation,” the administration argued, the court would have been able to change the meaning to exclude people who did not hold U.S. citizenship.
But if the court concluded that the phrase applied to all people, the meaning would have changed, and so on.
That’s where the new administration’s arguments come in.
The administration believes that Congress should pass a new law that will change the definition to exclude those who did NOT hold U, but not all Americans.
As Hindereker put it, “There’s an argument that the Constitution would not apply to everyone, but the courts are going to rule on whether that’s right.”
The interpretation of statehood that the court has ruled unconstitutional.
This is the crux of the case.
The current administration has argued that states cannot be considered a “nation” unless they adopt a U. S. citizenship law.
As a result, the United states has a de facto foreign policy.
The Obama administration, in an attempt to get the courts to give them a new interpretation of what the 14 is supposed to mean, was forced to appeal a federal court ruling that declared the 14’s intent to be unconstitutional.
The decision was reversed by the U. s Supreme Court on Monday, but in the process, the Trump administrations legal team has spent months arguing that states can be considered part of a nation if they adopt U.s citizenship laws.
The Trump Administration’s position that states should be treated as nations also appears to be the basis of the administration’s position in the case before the Supreme Courts.
“The Trump Administration does not believe states should have a right to determine their own policies on immigration and to enforce existing laws against immigrants
