LOS ANGELES – Regarding the President’s assertion that he would limit birthright citizenship with an executive order, U.S. Senate Candidate Kevin de León today released the following statement:

“Our nation, and the 14th Amendment of our Constitution, were built on the promise that no matter who you are or where you come from - you can build a brighter future for your family on American soil.  President Trump’s claim today that he can roll back a constitutionally protected birthright to American citizenship is an absurd, racist fantasy driven by principles of white supremacy.

“If the President signs this Executive Order, it will inevitably go through a judicial system and a Supreme Court he has already flooded with his own political operatives. It is truly unfortunate that California’s own senior Senator has been complicit in this process, confirming more than 60% of the President’s judicial nominees.

“Donald Trump will not change our values; he will not shake our resolve to resist the politics of hate he uses to splinter this great nation. Instead, we must vote.  Vote like the lives of your friends and your neighbors - like your very own life - depends on it.”
