    This is crazy, I hope something is done soon to stop this. These women are blatantly lying to US customs officers to get visas and having their babies here just to leech off of us. They don't even try to hide it! Ridiculous....

    The 14th amendment is in desperate need of a revision. Citizenship should only be granted to children of naturalized citizens.

    Birth tourism has been going on for a long time now. Just check out this thread from 2010.

    One of the things we need to do as part of larger immigration reform is make it so that to get citizenship a kid has to have at least one of its parents with either US citizenship or permanent residence. As it is I don't see anything illegal about this.

    I'm not sure how they've been able to avoid prosecution.

    Whenever I see a headline like this, I have to ask myself, "I wonder if it would be worded this way if it were a German, British, or Canadian Anchor Baby Mansion?" I can see the headline now. Canadian Anchor Baby Mansion discovered in Chino Hills!! :rolleyes:

    In any case, it is interesting that middle class Chinese consider U.S. citizenship to be a worthwhile investment that might pay off someday.

    Legally I dont really see the problem with this... They're american babies after all by birth place.

    Unless they change the law there's nothing that can be done

    Lieing to customs officials to gain entry to a country might break some laws.

    Maybe a vaginal ultrasound is called for here?

    Lord knows that some wish to use them on your own citizens, against their will.

    Lying to gain entry into the US is a deportable offense, however they will never be prosecuted.
