Raids on "birth tourism" sites

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...urists-n315996

Quote:
Southern California apartment complexes that doubled as "maternity hotels" for Chinese women who want made-in-America babies were raided early Tuesday, capping an unprecedented federal sting operation, officials said.

NBC News was on the scene as Homeland Security agents swept into The Carlyle, a luxury property in Irvine, California, which housed pregnant women and new moms who allegedly forked over $40,000 to $80,000 to give birth in the United States.

"I am doing this for the education of the next generation," one of the women told NBC News.

None of the women were arrested; they are being treated as material witnesses, and paramedics were on hand in case any of them went into labor during the sweep.

Instead, the investigation was aimed at ringleaders who pocketed hundreds of thousands of dollars tax-free to help Chinese nationals obtain visas and then pamper them until they delivered in an American hospital at a discount, court papers show.
I like what RNG pointed out about this type of situation on another thread here.

Many Chinese come here to give birth just so that if the kid has some bad or expensive medical condition, they ship him over right now for my tax dollars to fix him. That is a user that unlike the natural citizens has never contributed to the system. It sucks.
I agree and well stated.

If there are sleazy dollars to be made, the Republican President will be right in there.

Wealthy Russians are flocking to give birth at Trumpís luxury US resorts so their kids can have dual-citizenship


While President Trump cracks down on the children of undocumented migrants, wealthy Russians are using his properties to secure dual-citizenship for their babies.

The President's Florida properties are a Russian birth tourism hotspot, according to a Daily Beast investigation. Trump resorts are a popular choice for birth tourism companies, who offer luxury holidays to help expectant Russian parents secure dual Russian and American citizenship for their baby by giving birth in the US.

Russian birth tourism companies are offering Trump apartments as part of packages costing £57,000 ($75,000) plus, as well as medical care, the Daily Beast found.

Status-Med, a Miami birth tourism company, offers a Trump Royale penthouse apartment for £5,300 ($7,000) a month alongside full access to the Sunny Medical Centre, which organises both beach yoga, get-togethers and medical care for expectant mothers.

From your link:

The Trump Organisation does not directly profit from birth tourism subleases of privately owned apartments
So we can hope that DHS also goes after this Russian Sunny Medical Services outfit.

The problem is the Supreme Court. Does Congress have the balls to take them on and enact legislation prohibiting this? No, Congress does not, not for decades now.

This country is now dedicated to the wealthy, and the wealthy from all over the world come here to enjoy it, and to take advantage of the system, which has been taken over for the benefit of the wealthy.
