This is NOT about pregnant women coming to the USA to give birth so their babies can become American citizens. This is about the OTHER kind of Birth Tourism.
50-Plus-ers, as my dear departed Daddy used to say: “There is ALWAYS someone who will take advantage of the Oddball Angle.”
See the link at the end of this Blog that is from The New York Times. Here are a couple of fascinating excerpts:
“...their clients...(paid) indigent rates to deliver their babies, even though many...were wealthy.”
“...pregnant mothers...stay at the '5-star' hotel, Trump International Waikiki Beach, to convince immigration officials that they were well-to-do vacationers, not mothers traveling with the intention of giving birth on American soil, investigators said.”
[Author's note: this explains why I was getting so many dirty looks while lollygagging on a tiny balcony of a budget hotel on Waikiki Beach. In my fabulous covers-a-multitude-of-Big-Macs muu muu. My figure being at the time, er, pear-shaped. Okay, a PAIR of pears.]
[OK... a BAG of pears.]
THAT kind of birth tourism is ESPECIALLY attractive to Chinese nationals.
Less so lately, since a flurry of indictments by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigation Department. Killjoys!
(Imagine trying to kick in the door during a noisy, blitzy pre-dawn raid, and the Chinese National is in well-advanced pregnancy... and has to struggle out of bed at the Trump International...and is bleating “What the Sam Hill?” in Chinese...
...and the door-kicker-inner is trying to yell in English at top speed: “Open the door! Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigation Department!”
--And you thought YOUR jobs stank.)
There's gotta be an easier way to get a U.S. passport.
The word “Aryan” is linked with the country of Iran. (They sound alike, don't they?) It supposedly describes light-skinned, light-eyed people who invaded India from the north, and shaped Indian culture. (Then THAT culture got superseded by Hinduism.)
HITLER thought they were so superior that even HE couldn't qualify.
In reality, there ARE about 1000 people— in 5 villages-- near the Indo-Pak border-- check out the link below (Tale of the Last Aryans)-- who technically qualify!!
Scenic... downtown... Ladakh!
By the way, the locals are
“Tall, fair-skinned, (with) high cheekbones and light eyes...some with blond hair, too”.
Third-Reich- type German woman used to come there to conceive, and thereby get a closer link to a pure Aryan bloodline.
I'VE been picturing Julian Assange, Cary Elwes, Robert Redford.
Not so much anymore, anyway-- take a look at the several photos of the locals.
Why bring this up now, you ask?
Because the villagers have turned Buddhist... the village appears not to have ANY kids... and.... now, I warn you, this is prison gossip from folks recently released from San Quentin... ARYAN BROTHERS reportedly are discussing traveling there, to create more little Aryans via the Indo-Pak women.
There... near The Line of Control... Yes, The Line of Control---I am not making this up.
You are not going to like the weather.
You see...The blondes, redheads and ginger people in the United States can't be relied upon to have the proper DNA.
But if you're serious about genetics and DNA and all that...and are verrrry fond of apricots...
It's always cold there in Ladakh; bring a good warm jacket. And sturdy walking shoes.
The term Line of Control (LoC) refers to the military control line between the Indianand Pakistani controlled parts of the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir—a line which does not constitute a legally recognized international boundary, but is the de facto border.
The western portion of the Line of Actual Control... lies between Chinese-controlled and Indian-controlled territory in the Himalayan region. The line was the focus of a brief war in 1962, when Indian and Chinese forces struggled to control land where, "not even a blade of grass grows," as Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru put it.
