Vitter: “Birth Tourism” is Nuts, Should be Illegal

(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) today made the following statement regarding recent reports that federal agents raided several Southern California sites connected to multimillion-dollar birth-tourism businesses. Birth tourism has been happening for years, including by illegal immigrants, but the recent raids were of businesses that enabled thousands of Chinese women to travel to the United States to give birth and then return to China with their children as U.S. citizens.
