According to the San Bernardino Sun, about 70 people gathered on Saturday at the intersection of Peyton Avenue and Chino Hills Parkway bearing pithy signs that read, "No in Chino Hills" and "No Birth Tourism." Protesters told the Sun that, not only did they object to the idea of a "hotel" being operated in a residential area, but they also weren't sold on the morality of a "maternity motel," where expecting Chinese mothers can come for a pre-labor vacay in beautifully arid Southern California before giving birth to a dual-citizen baby on U.S. soil.
This practice strikes some Chino Hills residents as totally cheating because there's a lot of bureaucratic paperwork that goes into being a U.S. citizen — it's not just a trip to Disneyland and a birth in someone's weirdly crowded home. Chino Hill officials, according to Mayor Art Bennett, are right now dealing with the home's code enforcement issues, not, as some patriotic t-shirt-wearing protesters might hope, the alleged illegal maternity racket.Read the full story HERE and a related video below:
Now I'm not sure about the foreigners doing this from other countries, but I know that the Chinese Gov't doesn't recognize Dual citizenship. (See articles 3&9)
