Marsha Blackburn Report: Combating Immigration Fraud

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Citizenship is for those who love our great country – not those parachuting in to purchase a second citizenship.

That’s why Senator Loeffler and I introduced The Ban Birth Tourism Act, which codifies the State Department’s January 2020 rule change prohibiting the issuance of visas for birth tourists.

Birth tourism is a multi-million dollar industry. More than 20,000 birth tourists come to the U.S. annually. From 2008 to 2012, the number of birth tourists coming from China to the United States increased from 4,200 to 10,000. These firms often serve wealthy Russian and Chinese nationals and charge foreign clients thousands of dollars for advice on how to lie to immigration officers.
