Taxpayers are on the hook for these people on average of 40 thousand dollars /person over the first 10 years for housing ,food ,etc. Multiply that by millions of illegals and unless someone is  void of logical thinking the problem is obvious.

john258:  This has been going on for years. You do know that Trump was selling this service to people. The package included staying at a Trump hotel (Fla was the big one). Birth services, US Citizenship, and air fare to and from. How come you did not point that out.

 

 

 

 

 

That's true. How shocking that a Trump supporter wouldn't know about it. *cough*

Talks-from-his posterior-tRump can't change the Fourteenth Amendment with a dim-witted executive order, or a congressional act - read Article V of the Constitution...

 

Oh... yeah... 90% of trump supporters and followers will never be capable of understanding it...

Birth tourism controversy: Foreign women travel to deliver babies, gain U.S. citizenship for newborns
 
Wednesday, May 22, 2019
CHICAGO (WLS) -- Women are traveling thousands of miles from their home countries to have their babies in the United States so their newborns go home U.S. citizens. It's called birth tourism and experts say it is a growing trend here and across the country.

The 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution essentially says you become a U.S. citizen if you are born on American soil.
 

Local OB-GYNs tell the I-Team they have patients who come here from other countries and pay out of pocket to deliver their babies in the United States.

A May 2019 federal government report shows the U.S. birth rate is at a 32-year-low. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, an organization known for favoring low immigration, there are tens of thousands of people who list a foreign address on their child's birth certificate.

The group estimates there are anywhere between 35,000 to hundreds of thousands of birth tourism births every year in the United States.

The U.S. is one of only 35 countries in the world that recognizes birthright citizenship.
 
 
=============================================================
 
It's not just illeagls that are using the US for birthright citizenship.
 
The cost to our country is one that we do not need but to change the law that recognizes birthright citizenship is unreal.  

This has been going on for years. You do know that Trump was selling this service to people. The package included staying at a Trump hotel (Fla was the big one). Birth services, US Citizenship, and air fare to and from. How come you did not point that out.

Now Trump wants to end it so he can take away Citizenship from anyone who opposes him. All Dictators due this if they can. It is a way to make sure they stay in power.
