Do we call it capitalism or is it exploiting a loophole?

SAN GABRIEL, Calif. – For months, neighbors noticed a number of pregnant Asian women coming and going at all hours at an upscale townhouse development in suburban Los Angeles.

They finally found out the home was being used as a maternity center for Chinese mothers paying thousands of dollars to give birth in the United States so their children would automatically gain citizenship, city officials said.


I am personally just not sure how to look at it, it is undeniably legal, but I can't help but think it is unethical. Then again, it is very similar to how Bruce Lee became an American citizen.

I'm a fan of loophole exploits.

How is this a loophole?

Perfectly legal and ethical as far as I'm concerned. If you are going to have a stupid law that says anyone born here is a citizen then this is what you get. If it doesn't make sense then.......... change the law.
Having said all that, the situation has been handled, so this thread is pretty much at an end. -Kossuth
