Every person who enters the US is essentially classified into two categories:  those who are or wish to stay permanently, and those who do not wish to stay permanently.

For those who do not intend to stay permanently - mainly most US visitors and those on limited-term work visas - there are natural and proper limitations to this system specifically designed to prevent the not-unlimited resources of the US from being overwhelmed.  For example, while on a legal work visa such as B or H category, you do not have the right to unemployment benefits and certain other state and federal benefits when that visa ends due to the end of your employment.  In fact, you are required to leave as soon as reasonably possible at the end of the term of your stay as outlined in your I-94 form obtained at the time of your entry.

If you intend on staying permanently after legal entry by any means whatsoever without an otherwise-legal the basis to do so (e.g. dual-intent visa categories, marriage, existing direct familial relationship with a US citizen or permanent resident) and USCIS gets wind of this, generally you should expect deportation proceedings and detainment without warning.  If your basis for entry is fraudulent to being with, then you can expect similar adverse proceedings.

This story has nothing to do about our opinions of legal immigration limits, whatever amnesty may or may not be coming, de facto enforcement practices or de jure enforcement practices.  The limits for immigrant visas by law are set according to numerous parameters by the government agencies involved in this process based on the likelihood of individuals entering the US of being able to sustain themselves and/or being members of specific politically-expedient classes of individuals (e.g. Cuban refugees).  This story is mainly about covert immigration fraud.

As those who actually read the article in its entirety may have seen, there is a strong legal argument for fraud against the individuals involved in these covert birth mothers which should automatically negate their ability to even enter the US in the future should such a scheme be discovered.  What would be helpful is for USCIS to explicitly state on the 6059B entry form that the person entering voluntarily agrees to permanently waive their right to permanent residence or citizenship via sponsorship by any person that may be born to them in the United States for the duration of that visit unless some other legal basis for such citizenship may exist that is not in conjunction with that visit.

The law does not allow anyone but the person with US citizenship and with full understanding to personally renounce that US citizenship, so it is not currently reasonable or legal to request the person entering for doing it on behalf of the child born in the US.  However, the voluntary waiver for the non-citizen who enters would probably go a long way to curtailing people from such fraudulent schemes and hopefully encourage them to obtain permanent residence or citizenship using numerous other valid and legal methods.

legion_of_doo: Birth citizenship had its reasons when we freed the slaves. Today, it is rather antiquated.

I am all for the best and brightest hardworking people from other countries coming here to make their fortune. But birthright citizenship is now being exploited like loophole and needs to be amended.

EvilEgg: America would have a declining population if it wasn't for immigrants.  So I don't have a problem with this.

Or maybe Americans would be having more kids if again if we didn't have to deal with the economic pressures caused by mass immigration.

Why do we need a growing population?  Verrry confused.  We already have too many people.

Most of the economy depends on it. Also America doesn't have too many people, Asia does.
