How one B.C. woman is fighting “birth tourism” from China

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Birth tourism. Have you heard about it? I know I hadn’t until recently. And its exactly as it sounds. Foreign nationals travel to countries like Canada and the US to give birth to a child who will be granted citizenship and all the benefits that come with it.

It’s not illegal in Canada or the US, but does this kind of new citizenship benefit or strain our country? Eighteen years after the child is born here via birth tourism, they can apply to sponsor their parents to come to Canada and gain citizenship, too, under our family reunification program.

But even before that, the parents can enroll their Canadian child into elementary school as young as five and then be granted residency here.

Much of the new immigration to the west coast of North America originates from mainland China. Birth tourism gives Chinese citizens a way out of their country. I have zero problem with immigration from China or anywhere in the far east. But as the National Post reported in July, there are 26 private residences in British Columbia “offering hospitality services to foreign pregnant women.”

I met with Kerry Starchuk, a Richmond resident for the past 28 years, who told me not only is her neighbourhood filled with empty foreign owned properties and new construction but also a few of these birth houses.

As Kerry mentioned, she has 8000 signatures on her petition. If you want to add your name, you can click here.

How can we be worried about Birth Tourism when we have a Prime Minister that wants to bring in 100’s of thousands of uneducated ,lifetime Welfare People who do not want to assemulate ; but instead have proven that they want to take over our
country? Not to mention their sick and cruel culture.

Just another “open border” symptom that is set up to destroy our free country by design.

There could be millions of signatures on the petition and it wouldn’t matter. Our bleeding heart leftist government is a total dictatorship and feels their views cannot be compromised. They know what’s good for us better than we do. Don’t agree and your a bigot racist who will be shamed into following the leader. The idiot running the show would have stood back and watched Hitler take over the world without so much as a peep. Leftist pussies are going to be the downfall of western civilization.

Canada is fucked.

Canadians chose a marxist – and not a very bright one either – to run Ottawa.

And then stupid Canadians complain about “no borders” crap like this.

Like the fat kid that complains about being fat and then proceeds to plow back another box of chocolate bars.

Stupid Canadians.

Are these foreigners paying to give birth in Canadian hospitals??? If not, why aren’t they. This is not right at all, our hospitals are already overfilled & not staffed properly & Canadians taxed so high for this so called (free health care) so this is unfair to our citizens. The fact that the child automatically gets Canadian citizenship plus all the perks is also unfair & doubly more unfair if there is no payment.

I guess we will be in for another Rude awakening when Trudeau returns from his trip to China, more open door policies for them and for Canadians, close your eyes what do you see, exactly.

Anchor Babies!! Can still remember that idiot reporter asking Trump if he wanted to call them something else as it may offend people, f course Trump just continued to call them Anchor Babies.
I wish i could have seen the look on the SJW faces when they saw that. The truth usually gets them upset.

Christopher Wilson; Birth Tourism or Anchor Babies is not a new phenomenon, It’s been going on for years unchecked & unreported. Lower Mainland is the hub of such activities. There are many places in Richmond, Burnaby, East Vancouver & Surrey where an expectant mother can rent a place for couple of months. Moreover, it’s not limited to just Chinese, I’ve seen South Korean, Persian, Pakistanis & East-Indians exploiting this loophole in our immigration system.
