Every person in the world is an American-in-waiting. Bullshoot. If illegal immigration is OK, then illegal deportation is OK. Get the foreigners out of America. Don't they have countries they love. They HATE their own countries; they are HATERS...America doesn't need HATERS. There is absolutely no need to transfer half the population of mexico over here. Mass transference of most of the population of the country right next door is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Mexicans should be allowed in the country to drive the trash trucks then GO HOME when their job is done. MEXICANS SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO BECOME CITIZENS...THEY SHOULD GO HOME AND MAKE THEIR OWN COUNTRY GREAT. Or not.

In order to overcome this, a Mandarin and Cantonese translator will be included in inspection teams, the report said, and inspections will include other agencies, such as the Public Works, Health and Fire departments.

But for now, the maternity homes that have not been inspected or have not been found to violate zoning, tax, or other violations, can continue to exist.

The website from the now-defunct Chino Hills operation, translated from Chinese, includes tips for mothers on how to hide their pregnancies from U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers, so they can receive a visitor's visa. Officers have the discretion to deny entry to those entering the country.

Pregnant mothers are advised to wear a dark T-shirt and holding a large backpack in front of them to cover their stomachs, according to advice on the website. They are also told to not bring in any items specific to pregnant women and babies, in order to prevent suspicion.

Aside from citizenship, the website touts other perks American citizens enjoy, including free public education, better loan rates and social welfare during retirement.

"Birth tourism is another indication that Uncle Sam is a stupid cupid," North said. "If there is not a law or regulation, then no one really keeps track of how prevalent this is."
