his U.S. territory in the western Pacific is known for its epic World War II battle, white-sand beaches and the enduring culture of its indigenous Chamorro people.

Abolish birthright citizenship.
Believe it or not, it’s also one of the reasons for the sky-high price of bitcoin. The Chinese have capital controls that prevent any real money from leaving the country. But buy a bunch of crypto currency and give the private keys to the kid and he is out of that hell hole with a transistor and a large sum of money to spend.
And bad sneakers with a Piña Colada.
It only exists in fantasyland, so click your heels and it’s gone.
Old article by a Saipan news source (blog), this has been going on a while.
“Birth tourism on the upswing” (Feb 14 2012)
There are a lot of details in the article, sounds like this has been a developed industry for a long time.
Future “Fifth Columnists” when China declares war on the US?
“Abolish birthright citizenship.”
Abolish birthright citizenship!!
It exists in US code. As someone who has actually issued passports and visas, you will have to do more than click your heels to make it disappear.
Gee ...Zero’s mom would only have needed to make a short hop to Saipan.
More anchor babies. This has to be stopped.
Sheer insanity for our country.
It doesn’t exist in U.S. code. It exists in misinterpreted regulations that are unconnected to any actual statute.
I must say your arrogance is only exceeded by your ignorance. Do you really think that I would not be obeying a law when issuing passports or visas? Regulations are based on laws. It is in US Code. Where do you come up with this stuff? Suck it out of your thumb?
