If we don’t keep Donald Trump in the White House for another four years, you will never again see head lines like this or, for that matter, any effort to slow migration to America.
Indeed if he doesn’t succeed in November, there will be no need for blogs like mine—we will be cooked and done!
Trump administration unveils new rules aimed at preventing foreign women from traveling to US to give birth
The State Department on Thursday unveiled new rules that could make it more difficult for pregnant foreign nationals to travel to the United States using tourist visas, citing security concerns.
The rules, which will become effective on Friday, are an attempt to crack down on “birth tourism,” or the practice of giving birth in the United States in order to obtain U.S. citizenship for a child. They apply to B visas, or those issued to nonimmigrants.
“Closing this glaring immigration loophole will combat these endemic abuses and ultimately protect the United States from the national security risks created by this practice,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. “It will also defend American taxpayers from having their hard-earned dollars siphoned away to finance the direct and downstream costs associated with birth tourism.”
The Center for Immigration Studies, a conservative group that advocates for stricter immigration laws, estimated last year that there were 33,000 births to women in the country temporarily on tourist visas between the second half of 2016 and the first half of 2017.
All of those little babies will be back some day to claim their benefits as US citizens!
