A growing number of Russian women are choosing to visit Miami, not just for its sunny beaches and sexy nightclub scene, but to give birth.
Miami has apparently become a hotspot to have children as number of women have taken to social media to show off their newly minted American tykes.
“It’s really common,” Ekaterina Kuznetsova, 29, told NBC News. “When I was taking the plane to come here, it was not only me. It was four or five women flying here.”
These, however, are not merely anchor babies, in Trump terms. Russian women are spending thousands of dollars to stay in Miami for several months before giving birth.
“American passport is a big plus for the baby. Why not?” Olesia Reshetova, 31, said. “It’s a very comfortable place for staying in wintertime.”
These new Moscow moms are being joined in the U.S. by an increasing number of Chinese women who have flocked to California to have babies. There is no legal issue with a foreign resident having a baby in the U.S. as the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution states that “All persons born or naturalized in the United States are citizens of the United States.”
