Birth tourism, Russian, mothers giving birth in the U.S
« on: January 09, 2018, 06:09:42 PM »
Of course  the liberal media  singled out Russian mothers,  but there's  many hundreds of illegals from  South of the  border that come without  visas.
What I have found interesting is the  large  sums of money being paid,  and to the  high praise these women have for citizenship for their  children

I know a guy who was born in LA, literally born there with no other ties, his mum and dad went out, he was born and they left but he got US citizenship so all is good. He's not even returned to the US since! However much it cost, it was probably a massive waste.

Numbers are dwarfed by those "south of the border". I would be willing to bet that there are more Chinese women doing this than Russians.

It has been mis-interpreted for too long - the "subject to the jurisdiction of" clause - about 30 million Hispanics need to be sent back home, as they never should have been recognized. Muslims too, especially the trash of the Muslim world: Somalis.

Perhaps the best known birth tourist is Dasha Zhokova who if I am not mistaken gave birth to her second child onboard Eclipse while moored at Manhattan. Her first child I believe was also born in the United States.

It was something of a joke at Basel why she was not present a few years back.

There are far more Chinese and Hispanics taking advantage of this.

The negative coverage is part of a concerted effort by the US Media to paint anything Russian in a bad light.
