Canada, U.S. only developed countries that grant automatic citizenship to babies born on their soil.



“We don’t want to encourage birth tourism or passport babies, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney told the CBC’s Power and Politics in an interview. "This is, in many cases, being used to exploit Canada’s generosity. The vast majority of legal immigrants are going to say this is taking Canada for granted.
“We need to send the message that Canadian citizenship isn’t just some kind of an access key to the Canadian welfare state by cynically misrepresenting yourself.… It’s about having an ongoing commitment and obligation to the country.”

Go Canada. The US needs to pay attention before it's too late.

US Constitution? Canada doesn't abide by it.

Birth tourism is the best and easiest way to immediately access the many welfare handouts in the USA.

Illiterate, uneducated and unskilled illegals and others simply cannot come here to take the lowest paying jobs without the food stamps, WIC, Medicaid and free government housing as the cost of living in this country is much higher than that of their own countries.

Welfare through birth tourism makes it all possible for the most indiigent people to move in by the millions, give birth at taxpayer expense - because you can bet most hospital administrators aren't absorbing the costs of the illegals free care from their own bonuses, they know how to get the bailouts.

China's New Export to America: A Baby Boom

The benefits are myriad. Chinese parents giving birth in the US can skirt China's one-child policy – a priority for couples such as Ms Zhang and Mr Wei, who might otherwise face an exorbitant fine by the Communist government. Going to the US buys top-notch healthcare and, above all, secures automatic birthright citizenship for their baby. Once children turn 21 they can petition the government for permanent-residence status for their parents.

It is way past time for the US to end BR citizenship.

Show me where in the Constitution where birthright is actually legal for Anchor Babies. The 14th was for the children of the freed slaves.

But it wasn't worded specifically for that. Hence the flight from third world countries to the US. The second the baby is born all these wonderful entitlements kick in. A person from a third world country (example Haiti) will be quite content with what little the government provides because where they came from is 10 times worse.
