President Trump said he was preparing an executive order to end birthright citizenship in the United States, his latest attention-grabbing maneuver days before midterm congressional elections, during which he has sought to activate his base by vowing to clamp down on immigrants and immigration.
“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years, with all of those benefits,” Mr. Trump told Axios during an interview that was released in part on Tuesday. “It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. And it has to end.”
In fact, dozens of other countries, including Canada, Mexico and many others in the Western Hemisphere, grant automatic birthright citizenship, according to a study by the Center for Immigration Studies, an organization that supports restricting immigration and whose work Mr. Trump’s advisers often cite.
Bishop of Roseau Gabriel Malzaire says it is significant to note that Dominica's 40th experience of nationhood was sandwiched between two major natural disasters, namely Hurricane David & Hurricane Maria, the name sake of two significant biblical fields.

He says unfortunately some claim that the destructive Maria, has set Dominica's infrastructure back a significant 40 years.
Malzaire says it is fitting therefore for citizens to asks themselves what should the next four decades hold for Dominica.
And what disposition would be required to build a more vibrant, productive and responsible Dominica.
