Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials conducted raids on three residential buildings being used for an elaborate ‘birth tourism’ scheme in Southern California last week.
The buildings were being utilized by a birth tourism ring called You Win USA Vacation Resort. The entity charged pregnant foreign women around $50,000 in return for shepherding them through the US visa and immigration process, with the understanding that they would exploit America’s birthright citizenship laws to ensure their children would be US citizens.
Community members in the Irvine neighborhood described seeing groups of pregnant Chinese women arriving and living at the apartments where the birth tourism ring was keeping them.
Court documents related to the bust of You Win USA Vacation Resort describe the birth tourism ring as having enabled more than 400 women give birth in the geographic United States in the past two years- at one Orange County Hospital alone.
The ring coached foreign women in how to successfully deceive American immigration authorities and hide the fact that they are pregnant. Birth tourism in itself is not illegal, but lying to enter the country with the intent of procuring citizenship for unborn children is.
ICE official Claude Arnold told local media that Southern California has become a hotspot for this form of immigration fraud. “These people were told to lie, how to lie, so that their motives for coming to the U.S. wouldn’t be questioned.”
It appears that no arrests were made or charges were filed following ICE’s raid on the birth tourism complex.
Such cynical exploitation of American citizenship law reduces American nationality to nothing more than a joke. America is one of the few nations in the world to maintain outdated birthright citizenship laws, in a globalized era in which numerous other major countries have abolished it.
President Trump has floated the premise of creating an executive order to essentially abolish birthright citizenship, a project that would likely result in a lengthy legal battle. He is yet to mount an effort to challenge America’s birthright citizenship laws that are easy to rig and abuse.
Border Patrol Arrests More Aliens at Border in February Than Any Year Since 2006
Customs and Border Patrol detained more aliens at the southern border in February than any other year since 2006. Nearly 100,000 aliens were arrested last month, according to CBP officials who spoke to Reuters. February isn’t usually a big month for crossings at the southern border, with migrants instead usually preferring to try to enter the United States in the spring and summer months.
The surge in illegal immigration directly follows President Joe Biden’s embrace of “America Last” border and asylum policies. It’s hard to tell if the majority of the aliens remain in detention, have been set free into the country, or have been deported under coronavirus expulsion policies. Biden has all but abolished immigration detention for illegals who have been in the United States for an extended period of time, but the rules surrounding migrants who have been recently caught at the southern border are entirely unclear.
CBP officials are expecting 13,000 unaccompanied minors to arrive at the southern border in the month of May alone, presenting a crisis for an administration that has refused to respond to a surge of illegal migration with anything other than promises of residency, welfare benefits, and taxpayer-funded services.
On Wednesday, CBP apprehended more than 4,500 migrants on a single day, a figure that may very well represent a March record. Less arrests usually mean less aliens are infiltrating the borders, a phenomenon that President Trump’s “America First” immigration policies deterred through a combination of border wall, ‘Remain in Mexico’ asylum policies, and swift deportations of illegals.
The Biden administration has refused to consider any buffed border policies to deter new waves of illegal migrants, with ‘caravan’ style formations of thousands of migrants likely to arrive in the spring and the summer. Asylum seekers have appeared at the southern border wearing Biden campaign shirts, touting the establishment politician’s staunch loyalty to illegal immigrants over working and middle-class American citizens.
