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.

Marsha Blackburn, Kelly Loeffler Introduce Bill to End Birth Tourism, Fight Immigration Fraud

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) have introduced legislation to combat illegal immigration fraud and eliminate loopholes in birthright citizenship that are being exploited by foreign nationals. 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.

“Over the last two decades, birth tourism has grown to be a sizable industry. Each year tens of thousands of people exploit this immigration law loophole. Our nation’s citizenship is not for sale to those who pay to come here and give birth,” said Senator Blackburn.

Illegal Immigrant Crossings Fall 78%, Once Overcrowded Cells are Empty

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “There are a lot of statistics Mark A. Morgan, acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner, uses to show how President Donald Trump’s policies have helped to cut illegal immigration into the United States”—but there are two that he thinks really make that accomplishment clear, Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner.
