Medical Maternity Wards

  1. I recently heard a program on the Medical Maternity Wards for pregnant Chinese women in the US. Large homes in Western US are changed into many bedrooms being used for maternity wards. Pregnant Chinese women come to the US in later terms for pregnancy to deliver their children in the US so the children will be US citizens. They star for the delivery and for two months after delivery for recovery and to obtain Social Security cards for thier children. The reason for doing this is to have their children return to the US to attend college free as college is very competitive in China and difficult to get accepted. Has anyone else heard of this?

    College isn't free in the US. Far from it.

    It's not unknown for Chinese women to travel and have their kids overseas for the passports. The women of Hong Kong were doing it during the late '80s and '90s. Went to Vancouver or Toronto to have Canadian citizens. Gave birth in hospital and many skipped without paying the bill

    I don't think they get to attend college for free though.

    The benefits- (1) no limitation as to amt of children (2) no tax for additional children (3) better schooling in china for "American" kids (4) easier for the children to come back here for college. This was all told to me by my Chinese coworkers.
