U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is blasting President Trump’s suggestion to do away with birthright citizenship by executive order.
Durbin says Trump’s claim should not be taken seriously… and if he does attempt to rewrite the Constitution, Durbin says the courts should immediately strike it down. During a stop in Springfield before casting an early ballot, the state’s senior Democratic senator also criticized Trump’s approach to a migrant caravan moving slowly toward the U.S.
Durbin says we need border security, but says Trump is trying to deal with immigration through, quote, “temper tantrums and tweets.”
