Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says he'll follow President Donald Trump's lead calling for an end to "birthright" citizenship, and introduce legislation in the house to clarify both the Fourteenth Amendment and federal regulations which define the concept. "There is a debate among legal scholars about whether that right extends to the children of illegal immigrants".

"It's in the process", Trump said.

The president's idea has met a mixed reception from his fellow Republicans. "First the birthright comment itself and now attacking the top Republican in Congress who is trying to save our majority". "The way Congress can change it or the way statute is now drafted, the president can change it through regulation". Mr Reid has apologised repeatedly since making those remarks.

"Well obviously you can't do that", said House Speaker Paul Ryan on Kentucky radio station WVLK Tuesday. "That's the case with President Trump's proposal to end "birthright citizenship" through an executive order", George Conway wrote.

Mr Ryan has previously clashed with the president on issues such as healthcare and immigration, and reportedly finds working with him frustrating.

President Donald Trump's decision to bring an executive order to end the right to the USA citizenship for children born in the U.S.to non-citizens has invited widespread criticism, even from his own party. "We didn't like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action", Ryan added. Although Trump claims that the U.S.is the "only" country that allows birthright citizenship, there are actually more than 30 countries that do so, according to Axios. All of them are in the Western hemisphere, including Canada and Mexico.

The Constitution specifically states: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside".

Trump covered a lot of ground in two tweets, but he's correct that the issue could be clarified in his favor by the Supreme Court, which recently tilted to a 5-4 clear conservative majority with the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Senator Ted Cruz, who is now facing a strong challenge from Beto O'Rourke in Texas, also agreed with the president, according to the Dallas News.

Ryan has already announced his retirement after the Congressional mid-term elections but has campaigned for Republicans in a handful of races.

Mike Coffman of Colorado, another Republican congressman facing a tough re-election, also called out the president.

Asked about the legality of such an executive order, Trump said "they're saying I can do it just with an executive order". "The President should take heed and follow it".

Trump said he has talked about this with his council and reiterated that the process is in the works. The mainstream legal consensus is that a constitutional amendment would be required to change that.

Another Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi slammed Mr. Trump for his move.
