A good point and problem to resolve. The Trump administration plans to move forward with a new rule aimed at stopping what it calls "birth tourism" -- pregnant women traveling to the U.S. to have a "citizen child," a State Department official confirmed. "This change is intended to address the national security and law enforcement risks associated with birth tourism, including criminal activity associated with the birth tourism industry," the official said in a statement.
The changes to State Department policy for temporary tourist and business visas are expected to come shortly, the official said. Axios was first to report the administration was moving forward with the rule change. Trump administration officials have publicly criticized birthright citizenship -- a guarantee mandated by the 14th Amendment for anyone born in the country. Ken Cuccinelli, Trump's former head of Citizenship and Immigration Services and now the No. 2 at the Department of Homeland Security, said a constitutional amendment would not be required to make changes to birthright citizenship.
The birth of a child from a tourist should not be considered an American.
