San Diego Fire and Rescue crews were called to the San Ysidro border crossing for nearly 160 childbirth emergencies in 2012 one almost every other day.
Such calls continued in 2013, with 15 childbirth emergency calls to the gateway into Tijuana in January, eight in February and 17 in March, according to city records obtained by U-T Watchdog.
There are no statistics on how many of the moms being rushed by emergency crews to local hospitals are U.S. citizens, as federal laws prohibit emergency crews and hospital teams from asking. Babies born under the circumstances are U.S. citizens as a birthright.

Good ol' Rand was challenging the whole birthright citizenship before he got elected. Not so much now.
making sure their anchor babies are documented as having been born in the US..
Roll em back to their own side of the border for the birth...
Build a “birthing facility” on the mexico side of the border. Then tell them to go there.
It took me a while to figure out which was the verb in that headline.
And they get a ride to the hospital and we pay the bills.
So there will probably be, if there isn’t already an organized racquet for bringing women in advanced pregnancy to the Mexican border towns where they can wait till they start labor when they will simply be whisked to the border so that ambulances can be called to take them to American hospitals. Why can’t we get some spine? If they ae coming from Mexico, they should go to Mexican hospitals. End of story.
