Earlier stories reported that these Asian MTB were not impoverished immigrants—they rode the US gravy train.
Their trips here were financed by rich relatives-—the chain migration once the babies were born meant more riches.
They all knew exactly where all the US govt buried treasure freebies were.
“Every Person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.”
Senator Jacob Howard,
co-author of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment, 1866.
These are the people we WANT in the US.
We want immigrants of the RIGHT sort.
Successful Asians aren’t a drain on the resources of the country.
They are a net plus to national income.
The problem with immigration policy is not just that too many of the wrong sort are coming in but that its become quite difficult to get the right sort in.
The more elaborate workarounds, loopholes like this open the right doors, not the wrong ones.
If the legal immigration process was structured correctly there would be an effective filter to select for quality.
Citizenship by being born on the soil makes perfect sense if you are a King and require that these people be your “Subjects” (another word for servants.) It is a nonsensical and ridiculous idea for a Republic with highly desired and valuable citizenship.
