    This has been going on for years. Not just in the U.S. but also Australia, New Zealand and many other places, including Hong Kong!

    This is exactly why I think we need to remove that part that says kids born here are US citizens, and we need to change it to kids who are born here, and both parents are US citizens, will become US citizens. Anybody else will be citizens of the same country their parents are, and not US citizens.

    And while we're at it, let's change that annoying part about the "right to keep and bear arms."

    After all, the world has changed.

    :upeyes:

    It behooves us to be careful when we start talking about changing the parts of the Constitution that we don't like.

    Recall some reports last year of this happening in the San Diego area too. I think it was mostly Koreans though.

    Another one I've heard of are hotels where you can give birth in. You check in for a month or two and they have doctors/nurses to deliver the babies. I might be remembering it incorrectly, but am pretty sure it was a variation of this.

    Pilots from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, and other countries used to set their pregnant wives up in hotels around Newark airport for a few weeks so they could deliver in US hospitals. Then they would fly back to their homes with their anchor baby and his US birth certificate.

    We had alot of calls about it immediately after 9-11. It probably still happens.

    This has been going on for years. In NYC there is a hotel that foreign pregnant women stay at, when ready to deliver they go to the hospital. Then the child gets a SS no. The Koreans do the same thing in Guam (I think).

    Let's say there is political problems or famine in China. The Chinese baby/child/adult born in the USA can come to the USA buy a house and then send for their parents/extended family to come live with him. The parents/extended family might be illegal if they overstay but they have to be found and deported - not likely.

    You knotheads act like anything that isn't right or that a lot of folks don't like is so.....so wrong.

    I could do with the outlawing of such a thing, no matter what y'all believe.

    Now just how racist, mean, and bad does that make me............in your eyes of course?

    IMO, nothing wrong with a woman having her baby here if the cards fall that way. But......for them to intentionally come/hide here so that they can have a baby that will make the whole family welcome.

    No.:wavey:

    What the hell are you talking about?

    I could too. I think it's wrong and it's a stupid loophole.

    That's not the point. What I "feel" about it doesn't dictate whether or not it's legal. The Constitution does.

    Again--what the hell are you talking about? I'm on the same side of this issue as you are. Again, the only difference is, instead of allowing how I "feel" about it to make me spout off about how we should "remove that part" of the Constitution.

    Yes, it's true that the Founders probably never imagined it would be so easy to pop over to the US and stay for a couple of weeks when they put jus sanguinis in the Constitution. But it's equally true that the Founders probably never imagined machine guns, either. When we start talking about "what the Founders would have done" it's a very slippery slope.

    FYI it isn't a part of "The Constitution" proper, it exists as part of the 14th Amendment and, like prohibition, is subject to repeal without any more "damage" than repealing prohibition.

    One of these days somebody needs to start a "Write Like Carrys Contest" thread. His ramblings sound like someone tossed James Joyce, Thomas Pinchon and William Burroughs novels into a Cuisinart. HH

    And the "right to keep and bear arms" isn't part of "the Constitution proper" either, it's "just" part of the Second Amendment.
