Green Party President Peter Sinkamba says Trump’s plan to end birthright citizenship in the United States through an Executive Order is proof that America has a very selfish man for President with short memory.
And Mr. Sinkamba says if it were not for birthright automatic citizenship laws, Trump would never have been an American himself let alone be the President of the United States.
“President Trump’s ancestors originated from the German village of Kallstadt in the Palatinate on his father’s side, and from the Outer Hebrides in Scotland on his mother’s side. All of his grandparents and his mother were born in Europe. So, by decent he is German and Scottish. Thanks to birthright laws, he is American and POTUS,” Mr. Sinkamba said.
“You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order. We are all immigrants in one way or the other. But over and above all, we are born where God wants us to be born. Birthright citizenship is God’s gift. No man has a right to take away God’s gift. What Trump plans to do is not only weird but ungodly too. It is a sin,” Mr. Sinkamba added.
Birthright citizenship — granting automatic citizenship to nearly everyone born on U.S. soil, regardless of whether their parents were admitted legally — has been policy of America for more than a century.
Numerous bills have been written in Congress to try to alter the policy but they’ve failed to pass. Mr. Trump is the first president to suggest using an executive order.
“What President Trump is trying to do is worse than anti-Semitism and xenophobia which is put simply are acts of hostility to or prejudicial or discrimination against Jews and other foreigners. As a Jewish descendant, I expect Trump to abhor acts of hostility or discrimination against other races because of the persecution that his ancestors suffered at the hands of Germans during the holocaust times. I have been to those concentration camps in Poland and Germany and I have seen what Trump’s ancestors went through. That is horrible and should never ever happen to mankind; never again,” Mr. Sinkamba said.
“What President Trump is doing is what in Lozi is called ‘pukuchwe munyelela siliba’. A pukuchwe is a person who messes up a water-well after drinking water from that well. Now, in life, you don’t do things like that because you will need the water from the same well the next day,” Mr. Sinkamba added.
Mr. Sinkamba hopes the American people will reject Trump’s move because if he succeeds, then that will be a precedence to be followed by other Nations and may provoke global hate and reprisals.
“President Trump needs counsel of the Church at this moment than ever before. He needs deliverance. We have people of foreign descent owing land and other natural resources across the globe. If he succeeds, Trump’s move will trigger global reprisal. We will see unprecedented land and property grabs across the globe from people of foreign decent. I shudder to see this happen to any country,” Mr. Sinkamba said.
He advised President Trump to focus on trade wars.
“This war on birthright citizenship is a sin. He should focus on other things. May be, he is better off focusing on trade wars,” he added.
