Earlier I spoke about a woman I met who admitted to taking advantage of the system, and she is obviously not alone. It is common knowledge to the Chinese that our law makes no sense, and the Chinese are exploiting it.
As a matter of fact, a recent movie called Mr. Right is about just that. In the film, a Chinese woman comes to the USA in order to give birth and later leverage the benefits that ensue. The movie was a hit, but speaks to the explosion in awareness of the flaw in our system and Chinese agencies willing to exploit it.

On this side of the Pacific, Chinese tourist agencies provide visas and counseling for expectant Chinese mothers. They are coached on how to handle their visa interview and even customs and homeland security in the USA. Lists filled with the names of Chinese doctors who will falsify documents to say that the Chinese tourist is not pregnant are provided.
They are also told to go before their “baby bump” is too obvious and wear loose fitting clothing as well. If this is not good enough, then it’s suggested they sling a bag over their belly to further hide the protrusion. Once the agency fee is paid, it’s off to the land of plenty to have a real American child.
