Our immigration system has far too many loopholes, one of which the Trump administration is about to slam shut.
This week, the Trump administration announced new restrictions for visas being issued to pregnant women traveling to this country specifically so their child can be a citizen of the United States.
According to the new rules, a tourist visa will be denied if the mother has been “determined by consular officers to be coming to the U.S. primarily to give birth, according to the rules in the Federal Register.”
White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham stated that “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.”
The State Department also issued a statement that it “does not believe that visiting the United States for the primary purpose of obtaining U.S. citizenship for a child, by giving birth in the United States – an activity commonly referred to as ‘birth tourism’ is a legitimate activity for pleasure or of a recreational nature.”
The Birtherism Industry
Democrats will never admit it, but this has become a major industry around the world.
There are literally tourism companies operating that are secretly dedicated to helping pregnant women travel to the United States specifically to give birth to their child while they are on U.S. soil.
Before we had to worry about terrorism, this was not considered to be that big of a deal.
It was one of those things everyone knew what was going on, but nobody really paid attention to it.
Today, however, the rules have changed rather significantly.
With so many threats against our country and the criminal element getting more clever by the day, criminals and terrorists are now using this as a way to infiltrate the country via chain migration.
There are also those exploiting their pregnancy to get into our assistance programs.
Either way, the American taxpayer cannot afford to foot this bill and our country cannot risk the dangers of allowing possible terrorists in through this loophole.
It is just one more way this administration is protecting this country and its citizens against threats Democrats refuse to admit exist.
