Birth tourists get instant U.S. citizenship for their newborns

I think that you guys will find this article interesting. It is about an uprising global industry that permits foreign women in the U.S. to give birth to their babies for money. Once the babies are born they return to their parents country of origin but at age 21 they can reap the benefits of American citizens, including bringing their family members to the U.S. There has been a lot of controversy over this issue because members of Congress and Representative Phil Gingrey say "They are gaming the system…and people should be put in jail,” a Republican from Georgia. Many people don't think it's right especially because while the mothers are here in the U.S. they shop at very high end stores.

It is a very interesting article guys, check it out!

It is a good way to get around the system. I have read about pregnant women dressing in such a way that their pregnancy won't be noticed by immigration officials when they get their visitor's visa, then having their babies born in the US.
