California ward for 'maternity tourists' shut down

Authorities shut down a makeshift maternity clinic crammed with 10 newborns and a dozen Chinese women who paid as much as $35,000 to travel to Southern California to give birth to children who would automatically be U.S. citizens, a newspaper reported Thursday.Police and city inspectors closed the converted home on March 8 in San Gabriel, a suburb ...

LOL,it's the tip of the iceberg!

(CBS) It was 5 a.m. and CBS News national correspondent Byron Pitts is with
a woman who is nine months pregnant. She's rushed to a south Texas hospital
to undergo a C-section - a $4,700 medical procedure that won't cost her a
dime. She qualifies for emergency Medicaid.

She gave birth to a healthy, 8 1/2 pound baby boy - born in America. His
Mexican mother gave him an American name: Eliot.

Eliot is one of an estimated 300,000 children of illegal immigrants born in
the United States every year, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. They're
given instant citizenship because they are born on U.S. soil, which makes it
easier for their parents to become U.S. citizens.

That's because those babies can eventually sponsor their parents - when they
turn 21 years old.

Now who cause this to happen??

The "Government"!

More Chinese women are traveling to America to give birth

Beijing - Wang Rong, who is six-months pregnant, is about to leave Beijing
for California so she can give birth to her baby in the United States and
give the child its first gift - US citizenship.

The special delivery will cost Wang and her husband, both white-collar
workers in the capital, 100,000 yuan ($15,000), but they say it is money
well spent.

The expenditure will cover all costs, including services before departure,
medical care in the US and a three-month stay there, thanks to the help of a
Shanghai-based agency that specializes in taking mainland moms to North
America.

"Given the quality of educational resources and employment prospects in
China, where there is a huge population and harsh competition, I want my
baby to win at the starting line by obtaining US citizenship," she said.

The cost to deliver a baby in the US is far higher than in Beijing, but
still affordable for the couple, which makes nearly 250,000 yuan a year, she
said.

The list of benefits runs long for babies born in the US, says Jiang Feng,
the Chinese mainland partner of the agency, which originated in Taiwan.

Jiang said babies born in the US will, at the very least, be entitled to a
place at an American public university, which is favored by many parents
over domestic institutions, both for quality of teaching and cheaper
tuition.

"The number of mainland customers has been skyrocketing since we opened the
branch in late 2008, right after the US opened tourist visa applications to
Chinese individuals," he told China Daily.

where's the logic of granting citizenship to whomever comes over?
there is no limit to the numbers. does that make sense at all?
so, if 100+ million foreigners come over and get babies, they could essentially take over our country without a fight?
think about it.. the baby, the parents... that's 3 x 100 million = 300 million new citizens?
So hopsing, how's YOUR maternity tourist, er, I mean, your mother doing these days?

You are kidding right? You have been going ballistic on an other thread defending this practice as perfectly acceptable and even beneficial for the country.

Or does that only apply in the case of the famous anchor baby Michelle Malkin

Oh OK. So you are in favor or "maternity tourists" as long as they have a visa. That is a bit surprising, but at least you are consistent.

no, I do not agree with maternity tourists.

frankly, I think the 14th amendment was misinterpreted. and believe that to be a citizen of the usa, at least one parent must have citizenship.

in the case of michele malkin, both of her parents were in the process getting their citizenship. they had "employer-sponsored" visas. her father was a doctor. a no-brainer.

the key issue here is having to financially support new citizens.

every nickel that we have to spend on new citizens coming into the usa is one less nickel that we have to spend on those already in the country.

the way I see it is.. the usa should take care of it's own people first before it spends money on others.

that's just commonsense.

You are so full of shit it is unbelievable. Malkin's parents were not "in the process" of receiving citizenship. They have been here for more than 40 years and there is no evidence they are even citizens now.

It is clear you have no understanding of how immigration works, but it is impossible to be "in the process" of getting citizenship while on a short-term visa. Somebody has to be a legal resident (green card holder) for five years before they can even apply for citizenship. Of course somebody with a short-term visa is not considered a legal resident.

In various accounts over the years Michelle has indicated that her parents came on a study visa, a work visa or a tourist visa. Take you pick, but it does not matter. Bottom line is it was a short-term visa. Her mother was pregnant when she arrived and they never left.

At least the Chinese women leave. Malkin's family did not.

Where are the links??? You expect people to be able to back up what they say, and if what you say is true, you should be able to post something of merit. Not a cheap shot, because if you had the link, you would have posted it, and you know it.

I did not realize you needed a personal link. I figured you could follow the thread and figure it out by yourself. I should have known better.

B.O. only shut it down because the 6.6 million illegal aliens from Mexico were whining about the Chinese getting a free pass, while they have to wade across the border!
