In suburbs of L.A., a cottage industry of birth tourism
The 14th Amendment is DC's sledgehammer for demolishing States' Rights and boosting its own power. Now it's being used by foreigners to legally invade America and displace its people:
USA Baby Care's website makes no attempt to hide why the company's clients travel to Southern California from China and Taiwan. It's to give birth to an American baby. "Congratulations! Arriving in the U.S. means you've already given your child a surefire ticket for winning the race," the site says in Chinese. "We guarantee that each baby can obtain a U.S. passport and related documents." That passport is just the beginning of a journey that will lead some of the children back to the United States to take advantage of free public schools and low-interest student loans, as the website notes. The whole family may eventually get in on the act, since parents may be able to piggyback on the child's citizenship and apply for a green card when the child turns 21.Note to regular readers Billy Yank and Ed Sebesta: Do you really think this was the intention of the drafters of the 14th Amendment? I'd like to see your thoughts on this.
