Visa restrictions on pregnant women levied by US to curb ’birth tourism’

The Trump administration on Thursday rolled out a new rule that aims to limit ’birth tourism’ by women who enter the country while pregnant in a bid to obtain citizenship for their children who are born on American soil. Such women, the Trump administration has revealed, enter the US on tourist visas.

I hope it's upheld. I think if someone hasn't been living here for a minimum of a year legally their kids shouldn't be given citizenship. That whole system has been fukt since it's inception. I never understood why it was allowed to be taken advantage of.

One reason I voted for Trump; he is the kind of man who is willing to do things for the country that no politician would ever be willing to do.

I know why birthright citizenship was a thing when it started; but no one questions anymore whether the children of African slaves born in America qualify as American citizens. Birthright citizenship is seriosuly antiquated, and being abused. Using China as an example: I don't think very many people have a problem with Chinese citizens who wish to avail themselves of American medical facilities. The problem is granting citizenship to children who will be returned to China to be raised as culturally, politically, and socially Chinese, who can then return and vote or influence laws to favor China. While I imagine not many Chinese families think this way, it does lend even more credence to the understanding that our elections and culture being tampered with by foreign governments, and creates distrust of visitors and immigrants from China.

Good no more Chinese anchor babies that allow their families to come, not pay taxes, not perform military service, and spy and steal from America!

I have really mixed feelings about this. There's a reason why the USA is one of the only countries on the planet where you get citizenship by being born here.
