Trump: Deport children of immigrants living illegally in US

Donald Trump wants more than a wall to keep out immigrants living in the country illegally. He says he also wants to end "birthright citizenship" for their children.
    
And Trump says he would rescind Obama administration executive orders on immigration and toughen deportation, allowing in only "the good ones."
    
The Republican presidential candidate described his expanded vision of how to secure American borders during a wide-ranging interview on NBC's "Meet The Press."
    
Trump said he would push to end the constitutionally protected citizenship rights of children of any family living illegally inside the U.S.
    
Native-born children of immigrants – even those living illegally in the U.S. – have been automatically considered American citizens since the adoption of the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution in 1868.
    
Repealing the amendment's citizenship clause would require the votes of two-thirds of both houses of Congress and support from three-fourths of the nation's state legislatures. Republicans in Congress have pushed without success to repeal that provision since 2011.
