Munoz: Trump assault on birthright citizenship is an insult to our constitution

munoz 031518SPRINGFIELD- Assistant Majority Leader Antonio “Tony” Munoz (D-Chicago) responded to Trump’s plan to end birthright citizenship by executive order with the following statement:

“Trump’s proposed executive order assumes he or any President has the sole authority to change our constitution. It’s an insult to the very document that guarantees our rights as Americans. This is another tactic to gain popularity by instilling fear of our immigrant community in his supporters.

People seeking asylum in this country have a human right to be treated with dignity. I will continue to be a voice for immigrants who have contributed so much to my district, our state and country.”
