    It also marks the first rise in births since 2014. Prior to this report, the number of births had been decreasing by an average of 2% per year. The report did not explain why the number of births increased, but Pew Research Center polls have suggested Americans delayed having babies during the first year of the pandemic due to public health and economic uncertainty, so the rising number could be the result of a rebound. "​​When it comes to changes in fertility behavior, we're limited," Dr. Brady Hamilton, from the NCHS Division of Vital Statistics and lead author of the...

    One of our country’s most insane policies is that of automatic birthright citizenship for babies born to illegal aliens on U.S. soil. People in the Third World certainly know about this policy and take advantage of it. A surprising recent action taken by the U.S. government sheds some light on the issue. The U.S. State Department, under the Biden administration, rejected the citizenship of Siavash Sobhani, a 61-year-old doctor in Virginia who was born in the United States in 1960. Current birthright citizenship policy is based on an interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment, enacted in 1868, a few years after...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who passed away Friday at age 90, once assailed illegal immigration as a net drain on working and middle-class Americans. In 1993, while giving a press conference in the Senate building, Feinstein spoke about the prospects of the North American Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which was set to go into effect the following year. As part of NAFTA, Feinstein said Mexico ought to be required to enforce its side of the United States-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration in its tracks. “I think you’ve seen the figures [for] state and local governments of what the cost is....

    Vivek Ramaswamy said this week that he supports ending birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants. "I think for a period of time it’s going to be necessary in this country, because you have an influx of migrants across that southern border, fourteen thousand-plus a day by some estimates crossing that southern border. That is not a rule of law, that is the abandonment of the rule of law," he said on CNN.

    -snip- According to TDJC, Hernandez was released on parole for aggravated robbery on October 21, 2021, with a special condition of electronic monitoring. TDCJ also confirmed that Hernandez was "granted permission to be at the hospital with his significant other during delivery [of her child]." According to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by WFAA, Hernandez went to the hospital to visit his girlfriend, who had given birth to their child. The warrant stated that Hernandez then began "acting strangely" and accused his girlfriend of cheating on him. The suspect started searching the room to see if anyone else was in...

    Republicans have pivoted to proposing a range of measures to provide a social safety net for women and families after endorsing the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, which ended the national right to an abortion. While Democrats are hoping to downplay the state of the economy and make abortion a key issue going into the November midterm elections, Republicans are trying to win over suburban women and moderate voters after backing the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which returned the abortion issue back to the states. On Wednesday, a group of Republicans led...

    VIDEOBrian Craig, co-host of the Steve Kane Radio Show (6-9 AM ET weekdays on 1470 WWNN Radio) used deductive reasoning ala Sherlock Holmes on the May 10 show to possibly figure out the reason for the baby formula shortage. Could he be right? Well, if there is at least one intrepid reporter out there who wants to go beyond merely acting as a stenographer for the Democrats and ASK government officials about this perhaps we can find out. And if Brian proves to be right, in a just world he would deserve a Pulitizer prize. That probably won't happen because...

    Illegal aliens, tourists, and foreign visa workers delivered nearly 400,000 children in the United States over the last 12 months, prior analysis concludes, securing birthright American citizenship. The analysis, published in 2018 by the Center for Immigration Studies, states that close to 400,000 “anchor babies,” the term used to describe the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens, are delivered across all 50 states each year. Anchor babies are rewarded with birthright American citizenship despite their parents having no legitimate ties to the U.S., many having only recently arrived. Years later, when the child is considered an adult, they can sponsor their...

    Having met a number of global traveler-types, I was surprised some years ago when I heard American citizenship described in very unromantic, mercantile terms. The most common expression was, “It’s a good passport to have.” For blood and soil Americans, citizenship is something entirely different. After all, two-thirds of Americans do not even have a passport. Rather, this nation is who we are. It is mom, apple pie, Main Street, the English language, our ancestors, our only political loyalty, and our destiny. Unlike globe-trotting “citizens of the world,” we are not just passing through. A similarly crass view of citizenship...

The judge, in a follow up to comments he made earlier in the day to ABC-7, indicated that no Afghan refugees have yet given birth in El Paso - but he added that a half-dozen pregnant Afghanis are hospitalized and due to give birth soon.

    U.S. immigration authorities will no longer routinely jail migrants facing deportation if they are pregnant or recently gave birth, reversing a Trump-era immigration policy. The new directive, announced Friday, does not bar Immigration and Customs Enforcement from initiating proceedings to deport women who are pregnant, nursing or have given birth within the past year. But they generally would no longer be detained pending the outcome of their cases except under "exceptional circumstances," the agency said. The practice of detaining pregnant migrants has been condemned as a threat to maternal and fetal health by immigrant and women's advocacy groups critical of...

    City officials in Orange ordered a small motel operating as a birth tourism lodge to shut down by the end of the month. Council members on Tuesday night revoked the JR Motel’s conditional use permit, saying the owner did not operate the facility for its intended use. The JR Motel doesn’t have a sign or take reservations from the general public. Instead, it caters to well-off Chinese women who come to the United States while pregnant with the intention of giving birth to a child who, by law, will be an American citizen. Though the practice isn’t illegal, city officials...

    The Trump administration is coming out with new visa restrictions aimed at restricting “birth tourism," in which women travel to the U.S. to give birth so their children can have a coveted U.S. passport. The State Department planned to publicize the rules Thursday, according to two officials with knowledge of the plans who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The rules would make it more difficult for pregnant women to travel on a tourist visa. In one draft of the regulations, they would have to clear an additional hurdle before obtaining the visa — convincing a consular...

    The Trump administration is reportedly planning to unveil a rule this week aimed at cracking down on "birth tourism" — a term referring to pregnant women traveling to the U.S. in order to give birth and secure U.S. citizenship for their child. Three officials told Axios on Sunday that the plain will be unveiled in the days ahead, though it was unclear what enforcement mechanism would be utilized by the administration to prevent birth tourism. President Trump has previously threatened to issue executive orders nullifying birthright citizenship, which is enshrined in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution. "This change is...

    Close to 400,000 anchor babies were born in the United States in 2019 as an executive order to end birthright citizenship gets kicked down the road for another year by President Donald Trump’s administration. Analysis conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies revealed in 2018 that about 300,000 U.S.-born children of illegal aliens are born every year. These children, often referred to as “anchor babies,” immediately obtain American citizenship and anchor their illegal or foreign parents in the country. In addition, about 72,000 anchor babies are born to foreign tourists, foreign visa workers, and foreign students every year — all...

    The JR Motel in Orange has no sign, takes no reservations and hasn’t paid any city hotel taxes. The motel openly caters to Chinese nationals as a maternity facility, a practice known as birth tourism. But that’s not the use permitted for the site, at 428 E. Lincoln Avenue. City officials in Orange are looking to revoke the motel’s permit, something the motel’s owner says is driven by discrimination.
