Bennie Crabtree: leaving aside weirdness in the headline...

My first reaction: Wow...The USA really should take better responsibility for it's citizens. Those kids should be with their parents.

My second thoughts: On the other hand, I am highly skeptical that the US would allow this to happen. I'd like to see a US source about the problem.


Obviously you're lying because if you read the article you'd know it has nothing to do with American citizens. Subby was also a moron.

Dimensio: Does the headline mean that 17.6% of the United States population are illegal Chinese immigrants, or does the headline mean that the number of Chinese "anchor babies" born to illegal Chinese immigrants is equal to 17.6% of the United States population?

Either way, I think that we would have noticed.


The headline means Subby went to public school and thinks reading at a 5th grade level is difficult.

seadoo2006: Joe Blowme: YEA misinterpretations of the 14th Amendment!!!!!

How exactly is,

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

misinterpreted?


Because reside means you're a citizen and you pay taxes, not you ran over the imaginary line in the sand before popping the baby out of your fuzzy clam.

ha-ha-guy: The other reason I'm skeptical is there is an entire industry of flying your pregnant wife over, having her pop one out, and then heading back to China. It can supposedly cost up to 50k all said and done (your wife is provided with house, a nurse, etc, it adds up). A lot of rich Chinese do this to avoid Chinese laws restricting the future residency of the child or just as a hedge in case China does collapse so the kid can easily relocate. Also because it makes it easier for the kid to come and go from America when they get their PhD from Stanford.


In addition to actual long term planning as you describe, many of the nouveau riche Chinese just do it because it's another 'luxury' to brag about in their hyper-materialistic status-chasing, kind of like having a Prada purse that gets you in-state tuition.

Bullseyed: Because reside means you're a citizen and you pay taxes, not you ran over the imaginary line in the sand before popping the baby out of your fuzzy clam.


I always find it shocking how poor some peoples reading comprehension is. So you may note the comma. All persons born in or naturalized in the United States [comma]. So what that does is make the group 'All persons born in or naturalized in the United States' the subject of 'are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside'. See how that works?

' and subject to the jurisdiction thereof' um this part is about Indians nations

ZzeusS: tarkin1: RTFA. = READ THE F...king ARTICLE.

The article said there are 58 million children whose parents don't live with them.

Of them, only 10,000 had US citizenship

10,000, not 58 million. Big difference.

Also, the entire set up currently costs a Chinese person over $80,000 to do. Yes, it used to cost $10,000. But at a current cost that high, not many will ever do this.

The US can handle 10,000 Chinese children, particularly as their parents strike me as being the smart and hard working.

Welcome to America.


Aka Cheat the system. Just the kind of people we'd like... right?

That 10k doesn't go to anyone legitimate. The parents are here illegally. The money they earn isn't taxable. It's a pure cheat all the way around.


Does your defect have a medical term, or are you just a dumbass?

What money are you even talking about?

There isn't a word in the thing you quoted about money. 10,000 is people. People. Of course the person you're quoting is missing the fact that it was 10,000 in Fuzhou, not the whole country... but still.
