Federal agents raided 20 “birth hotels” in California just one day after the Trump administration launched their biggest immigration charge.
Chinese nationals use the so-called birth hotels in order to win citizenship for their children — in most situations, a child born in the United States or one of its territories will automatically receive American citizenship. Women often pay as much as $100,000 to get into one of the hotels.
In the unprecedented federal sting operation, the feds raided 20 locations in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties. They were looking for the masterminds of the operations, who make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year off the scam. “It’s not necessarily illegal to come here to have the baby, but if you lie about your reasons for coming here, that’s visa fraud,” Claude Arnold, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations for Los Angeles, told NBC.
Joe Walsh, former Congressman and now right-wing talk show host, tweeted “Feds raid 20 ‘birth hotels’ in Los Angeles. Good. They’re called ‘anchor babies.’ This practice must stop.”
