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.


Hey, dude. This is Fark. You take your sane self out of here right now, before I have to come over there.

duenor: Insatiable Jesus: In other news, China DOES, in fact, issue travel permits to Party affiliated couples to come to the US for the exclusive purpose of having a baby here. Then the baby gets raised in China, where it learns that the roundeye is the enemy of the world, America didn't go to the moon and that America has only one kind of chicken: fried chicken. Not hyperbolic there, All of those ridiculous things have been said to me by Chicoms.

And we play along in the name of short term profits. Of course, it always works out for America when we put short term financial gain over sensible long term policies. Right?

BS.
I have yet to see a single chinese, let alone chinese american, under the age of 40 who (after spending a year in the states) prefers going back to china and it's stinky gutters.

Now the kids of elite chinese, however.. that's a very different story. for them, it's stay in china/hong kong until 18, go to college in US (and pay exorbitant non-resident fees or go to private schools like USC that benefit greatly from their RMB)... then return to china to take on ready-made top careers set up by their families.

or, at least, they are supposed to. often, they get together with nice white boys, refuse to come home, or refuse to come home unless the white boy gets to come along too...

... much to the frustration of chinese boys at college who have to console themselves with counter-strike and learning CSS....


Hahaha. That's exactly how my best friend met his wife at USC. -right down to the powerful family, although she's from Taiwan.

She's pretty cool and so are her parents. They met getting their PhDs in biology.

first off subby has serious reading comprehension...

secondly this is good news for the US!!!! Looks like China is a net profit for the US to counter the 'net loss' of illegal Mexican immigrants with anchor babies.

FTFA it seems like China's illegals come to work in the US and leave their families behind. Once these workers stop being productive (in the US) they go back to them.
Mexicans bring their entire family, stay put and then have kids to suck off the welfare system...

You know what? Given the choice I'll take chinese over mexicans. Both groups work their ass off but at least the chinese have enough sense to attempt to learn the damn language of the place they are immigrating to.

Kind of scary that I'm not qualified for almost any of the retail jobs in my area because I don't speak spanish.

"For example, at the Starfish kindergarten at Guantou, Liangjiang county, 80% of its students hold foreign citizenship. American citizenship accounts for the majority."

Scary!
These children are being programmed for future use in their country of citizenship!

/Extreme enough? (Going for the panic buttons.)

Not all of those parents live in the US. The article's intention was to include any big city including China's. The parents could still be in the country but not with the kids.

"....a special group of children who are left to stay in rural areas while their parents work as migrant workers in big cities..."

RTFA

Also, I want my own chinese baby. Do you think they can cook chinese food early on? I need a good cook.
