Foreign women to be ban from going to deliver their babies in the US

#motherhood#

The United States Government is set to ban pregnant women from entering it’s country just to deliver their babies. According to the US government, it will stop issuing visas to pregnant foreigners who have intentions of entering the country to give birth for citizenship.

This information was disclosed in a statement issued by the office of the press secretary to the United States.

According to Stephanie Grisham, the white house press secretary, the directive which will take effect from Friday, January 24, was made in efforts to promote public safety and ensure integrity of the immigration system in the US.

She said;

Beginning January 24, 2020, the State Department will no longer issue temporary visitor (B-1/B-2) visas to aliens seeking to enter the United States for “birth tourism” – the practice of travelling to the United States to secure automatic and permanent American citizenship for their children by giving birth on American soil,” the statement read.

“The birth tourism industry threatens to overburden valuable hospital resources and is rifled with criminal activity, as reflected in federal prosecutions.

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.

It will also defend American taxpayers from having their hard-earned dollars siphoned away to finance the direct and downstream costs associated with birth tourism.
