(Scroll down for video) A woman wanted to give birth in the United States, so that her baby automatically becomes a citizen.
The mother-to-be of China, went to the United States in her third trimester, when her doctor still allowed her to travel.
The woman, who is said to be in her 20s, went from Beijing to Seattle, Washington, when she was about 7 months pregnant, giving her plenty of time to stay on her 90-day visa for the baby to make its arrival in the United States.
However, during her stay, the mother decided to take a short vacation to Mexico. Last week, she boarded a plane to Mexico, for what was expected to be a few days of relaxation before the baby arrived.
However, she went into labor early and gave birth to her baby in Mexico, during her trip. So now, while she is blessed with a premature but healthy baby, the child will definitely not be a U.S. citizen.
Many people around the world take advantage of the law in the United States, which states that a child born in the U.S. is automatically a citizen.
After the births, many mothers are also granted citizenship so that they can raise their U.S. born child. Later they work on getting citizenship for the rest for their family.
