Parents from China are certifying their American-born children at the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles (World Daily, USA)
Reference News Network reported on Nov. 2 that with US President Donald Trumps plan to abolish birth citizenship, prosperous industries that help people go to the United States to have children in order to acquire American citizenship will suffer a heavy blow in China.
Trump said he planned to sign an executive order to abolish the birth citizenship of children born on U.S. soil by non-U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants.
Industry insiders say that tens of thousands of Chinese women go to the United States every year to give birth to children. At present, agencies receive a large number of consultation calls.
Lawyers have questioned whether President Trump can use this unilateral action to revoke the rights protected by the U.S. Constitution. Some agencies have assured potential customers that the current policy will not change for at least a few years. Others say customers are growing interested in Canadian births that also guarantee birth citizenship.
Reported that the Beijing-based child-care service Meifugal said it was not easy to amend the U.S. Constitution, so there was nothing to worry about.
It will take at least two to three years to change this policy, even if its the Presidents idea, said an employee of the Canadian-based Universal Baby Moon Center.
Several maternity service providers in Shanghai have also expressed doubts about the plans success, and their services remain unchanged.
Ring Baby Center said that since its report in October 31st, the agency has more consulting than before.
The report also says that the cost of childbirth and confinement in the United States is about several hundred thousand yuan.
Reported that these sources said that Chinese pregnant women when entering the United States with a travel visa, living in the Yuezi Center. These institutions are usually located in Los Angeles or Saipan, where Chinese nannies take care of them until the childs full moon.
According to reports, the famous American senator Lindsay Graham once said that the birth of civil rights is ridiculous.
He said: This policy is very attractive to illegal immigrants, it is not in line with the mainstream of the developed world, it should be put an end to such a policy.
According to the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to its jurisdiction are entitled to American citizenship.
Graham retorted that the U.S. Supreme Court had never ruled on the applicability of birth citizenship to children of illegal immigrants born in the United States.
But the legal profession is skeptical about whether Trump can use executive orders to end constitutional rights.
Hao Junbo, a Beijing lawyer familiar with transnational litigation and American law, said that even if Trump signed the executive order, it would be rejected for violating the U.S. Constitution.
This will lead to litigation, he said. The legal consequences are hard to predict. I think his main goal is to win the support of voters in the upcoming elections by fighting immigration.
