The Supreme Court has never actually ruled on whether the children of illegal immigrants born here are citizens or not. Amy Swearer, a legal analyst at The Heritage Foundation, joins us on the podcast to share that fact and more about the history of birthright citizenship in the U.S., and whether it’s appropriate for President Donald Trump to use an executive order to declare that children of illegal immigrants born here aren’t citizens. Plus: We talk about the best Halloween movies.

We also cover these stories:

  • Trump is looking to sign an executive order that would get rid of birthright citizenship.
  • House Speaker Paul Ryan says, “You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order.”
  • Whitey Bulger, the notorious Boston mobster, was pronounced dead Tuesday at a federal prison in West Virginia, one day after being transferred there.
