3 Arrested in Crackdown on Multimillion-Dollar ‘Birth Tourism’ Businesses - The New York Times

The businesses coached their clients to deceive United States immigration officials and pay indigent rates at hospitals to deliver their babies, even though many of the clients were wealthy, investigators said. Some Chinese couples were charged as much as $100,000 for a birth-tourism package that included housing, nannies and shopping excursions to Gucci.

And a new US citizen created every time, so that crooked Mama and Papa can immigrate too. And, for all I know, great chunks of extended family.

This birthright citizenship thing is bonkers - we've got it too. Originates in Common Law I assume. Or ancient English statute law? What does Blackstone say?
