U.S. President Donald Trump said he will seek to limit the right of citizenship for certain children born in the U.S., in a new bid to dramatically reshape immigration policies that is likely to spark a congressional battle.However, citizenship is granted to U.S.-born children under the 14th Amendment of the Constitution, which cannot be changed by the president. That would require action by Congress and U.S. states.One member of Congress, Republican U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham said he would move forward to introduce legislation "along the same lines" as Trump's order.At least since 2005, Republicans in the U.S. Congress have regularly offered legislation ending birthright citizenship for children born in the United States if their parents were in the United States illegally.
