Trump administration to target birth tourism in new immigration fight
20 Jan 2020 — #Homefront
The Trump administration has a new target on the immigration front — pregnant women visiting from other countries — with plans as early as this week to roll out a new rule cracking down on "birth tourism," three administration officials told Axios.
"This change is intended to address the national security and law enforcement risks associated with birth tourism, including criminal activity associated with the birth tourism industry," a State Department official told Axios.
Initial plans focus on the use of B visas for birth tourism. Details were included the latest version of the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions.

So-called Birthright Citizenship, which costs our Country billions of dollars and is very unfair to our citizens, will be ended one way or the other. It is not covered by the 14th Amendment because of the words “subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” Many legal scholars agree.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2018
