“ANCHOR BABY” Factories BUSTED! Feds Raid 20 “Birth Hotels” (Video)
This is insane! Time to put an end to anchor babies once and for all. If at least one parent is not a legal citizen then the baby should not be, either.
The ‘birth tourism’ industry is HUGE with the ringleaders pocketing up to $80,000 per pregnant mom. Women from all over the world come to America to deliver an “anchor baby” that receives American citizenship. The women are only charged with committing visa fraud if caught. This needs to end. The anchor baby policy has become a global magnet for expectant moms who want a ticket to become an American citizen. Enough! –100%FedUp.
Federal agents raided twenty “birth hotels” on Tuesday night in the Los Angeles area.
The plush complexes double as “maternity hotels” for pregnant Chinese women who come to the US to give birth to their anchor babies.
Chinese women pay from $40,000 to $80,000 to come to the US to deliver their anchor babies.
It’s an industry.

Chinese listing sites show several hundred maternity hotels in Southern California. It’s not clear how many of the listings are active.
NBC reported: Southern California apartment complexes that doubled as “maternity hotels” for Chinese women who want made-in-America babies were raided early Tuesday, capping an unprecedented federal sting operation, officials said.
NBC News was on the scene as Homeland Security agents swept into The Carlyle, a luxury property in Irvine, California, which housed pregnant women and new moms who allegedly forked over $40,000 to $80,000 to give birth in the United States.
“I am doing this for the education of the next generation,” one of the women told NBC News.
None of the women were arrested; they are being treated as material witnesses, and paramedics were on hand in case any of them went into labor during the sweep.
Instead, the investigation was aimed at ringleaders who pocketed hundreds of thousands of dollars tax-free to help Chinese nationals obtain visas and then pamper them until they delivered in an American hospital at a discount, court papers show.
“It’s not necessarily illegal to come here to have the baby, but if you lie about your reasons for coming here, that’s visa fraud,” said Claude Arnold, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations for Los Angeles…
…All told, the feds raided 20 locations in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties, targeting three competing birth tourism schemes, officials said. The suspected operators have not been charged but are being questioned.

RUSSIAN ‘BIRTH HOTELS’
A growing number of Russians are coming to the U.S. to give birth. These kids will have the right to live and work here, receive social services and, when they turn 21, will have the right to sponsor their parents for an American Green Card.
