Blackburn Blackburn Fights Against Birth Tourism, Illegal Immigration Fraud

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – United States Senator Marsha Blackburn (R—Tenn.) has introduced legislation to eliminate loopholes that foreign nationals exploit to become U.S. citizens.

“American citizenship should not be for sale,” said Senator Blackburn. “Foreign nationals should not be allowed to come to the United States with the sole purpose of giving birth to obtain U.S. citizenship.”

The Ban Birth Tourism Act will amend the Immigration and Nationality Act and ban birth tourism as a permissible basis for obtaining a temporary visitor visa. This legislation is in line with the U.S. Department of State’s rule change in January 2020 prohibiting the issuance of temporary visitor visas for birth tourists.
