SALT LAKE CITY — Dmitriy Gubarev and Tatiana Molotova beam with pride while holding their 9-day-old son, Mark, at a rental house in Salt Lake City. It’s been a long trip for the young family.
“You know, it’s not easy to come here for a few months,” Dmitriy said.
Their home is in Novosibirsk, Russia. After saving money for years, they traveled to Kazakhstan to get a visa to come to the United States. They returned to Novosibirsk, traveled to Moscow, flew to Los Angeles, bought a used car and drove to Utah.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The quality of medicine here, and then you get the citizenship for your baby,” Dmitriy explained.
The 14th Amendment ensure birthright citizenship. In simple terms, if you are born in the United States, you are a citizen. Flying to the U.S. to deliver a child is often referred to as ‘Birth Tourism.’
The Center of Immigration Studies, a non-profit think tank often associated with anti-immigration efforts, estimates there are 36,000 birth tourists every year in the U.S.
“There is nothing in the law that makes it illegal for pregnant women to enter the United States,’ Virginia Kice, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told the L.A. Times.
Fox 13 reported that the couple said they have no interest in living in the United States.
Dmitriy, Tatiana and Mark will leave here on June 30th, three months after their arrival. Mark will leave with a U.S. Passport.
“If he chooses the college here or in the states, it’s going to be up to him when he grows up,” said Dmitriy. “I want my son to be open minded and see and experience life, not only in Russia, but also in the western world.”
In January 2018, NBC News also did a report on the growing number of Russians coming to the U.S. to have their babies, and then coyly implied to their viewers that President Trump was profiting from it because some of the women stayed at Trump properties while waiting to give birth.
