Chinese birth tourism

My 2 cents:

  1. Nothing is going to be done in the US to change how baby's born in the US, get instant US citizenship. It's seen as part of the 14th amendment to the US constitution.
  2. The statistics on birth tourism from China seem low, the article mentions 10,000, but I feel it's more. In Rowland Heights, I see a lot of unaccompanied pregnant women around Target and 85 degrees C. And I have a feeling there is a maternity hotel within 2 blocks of where I live.
  3. Interesting on the costs, between $16,000 to $50,000 for a package. I am not sure if this includes airfare.
  4. One article mentions the tax headaches of being a US citizen, it seems most parents are not aware of this issue.
