It’s a start

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration on Thursday published new visa rules aimed at restricting “birth tourism,” in which women travel to the U.S. to give birth so their children can have a coveted U.S. passport.

Applicants will be denied tourist visas if they are determined by consular officers to be coming to the U.S. primarily to give birth, according to the rules in the Federal Register. It is a bigger hurdle to overcome, proving they are traveling to the U.S. because they have a medical need and not just because they want to give birth here. Those with medical needs will be treated like other foreigners coming to the U.S. for medical treatment and must prove they have the money to pay for it — including transportation and living expenses.

    it’s simple really – revoke citizenship by birth to non-citizens. and do so retroactively.
    these half-measures arent sufficient.

    • Passport says:

      The US can’t revoke a passport that easily. The Constitution says Article 1 section 9 “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.” Taking them away retroactively would constitute an ex-post facto, or after-the-fact, law.

      The Bill of Attainder would mean passing a law against an individual (Donald Trump for example), or a class of individuals (such as Trump Voters). But it’s more complicated than just that.

      To realistically end the anchor baby process, it would take a veto-proof majority in both houses of Congress, and then to further pass that the law not be subject to review by the courts.

      Here’s to November 3rd!

      Yes indeed!

    It is only custom that such a thing as anchor baby exists. There is no law to that effect. Easy to do as Other Jack suggests. Just takes someone with the balls.

      You are correct. NOTHING says you’re born here you’re a citizen. I was looking for the exact terminology but could not find it. Won an argument at work with it recently but damn my memory.

    Good start – I don’t understand why that policy still remains. We have plenty of legal Americans already, its not like our country’s borders are expanding as well. Pretty much doubled since the late 1950’s, our infrastructure is way behind our population needs.

    A plus for the tree huggers – Americans are far more wasteful of resources, the less of us, the better for the environment. So begone and enjoy your new home. If you are deadset on becoming American, they are accepting LEGAL residents already.

    • Henk says:

      Do you realize that the tree huggers are the same people that want open borders?

      • anonymous says:

        Yes, and the sound of the irony of their thoughts is deafening !! The only thing louder are their thoughts of ‘Guns are Tools of Murder’ and supporting human abortion.

    About time.

    Shameless self-promotion: wrote about that here:

    You got me on with the first sentence.

  6. subvet72 says:

    The 14th Amendment was for slaves who were born to insure that the were considered US citizens. Even American Indians were not included nor were the children born here of foreign diplomats. It sure as heck shouldn’t apply to the children of illegal aliens.
    Unfortunately this has never been challenged in the courts and needs to be or Congress needs to amend immigration law.

    Around Christmas I visited an old friend in Whitestone NY,we drove into Flushing and he pointed out a building: Frankie boy,that’s where the Chinese come to have that “American Citizen “! They advertise all over China for their services,he told me.

    Zion Don the Con playing to his base in an election year. He could have and should have ended birthright citizenship 3 years ago but hasn’t done shit about it.

    Hawaii Federal Judge issues injunction in 3… 2… 1…

Play nice.
