Illegal Immigrant Arrested for Operating US Anchor Baby Business In Saipan

Just think that if this anchor baby business was going on in a far off US commonwealth like Saipan, how many more of these operations must be going on back on the US mainland?:

A Chinese man, living on Saipan illegally for several years after overstaying his tourist visa, opened a tourist birthing business, using dozens of illegal workers from China as caretakers, according to federal court documents.

The unlicensed business, run out of an apartment complex, catered to as many as a dozen pregnant women at a time, each paying at least $15,000 so their children could be born on U.S. soil, documents state.

Sen “Sam” Sun operates a birthing-tourism network on Saipan that caters primarily to Chinese tourists, according to a criminal complaint filed against him this month in the U.S. District Court for the Northern Mariana Islands.

Sun, who allegedly has been in the CNMI illegally since 2014, after overstaying his tourist visa, was indicted on charges of harboring illegal aliens, unlawfully employing aliens, and money laundering.

He was arrested Nov. 3 on Saipan, the day the indictment was filed, according to an arrest warrant.  [Guam PDN]

You can read more at the link, but some how I doubt the founding fathers intended for anchor babies to be the reason for US citizenship if born on US territory.



I am a US military veteran that has served all over the world to include in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Korea. I have been blogging about Korea, Northeast Asia, and the US military for over 10 years.


  1. Should revoke the citizenship of everyone born in that clinic. Probably a RICO act or other conspiracy law about profiting from an illegal activity. Their profit was US citizenship.

  2. The U.S. government needs to close the loophole on this. If the baby is born to parents who are on U.S. soil illegally, or if they are on a tourist visa (i.e. just visiting), the baby should not automatically get U.S. citizenship.

  3. Only 30 of the 192 countries in the world offer birthright citizenship, and of those 30, the only “advanced” countries that do are the US and Canada.

    So, why do we keep doing it when with one exception, no other advanced country bothers?

  4. Birthright citizenship should be stopped. Damn burden on the whole country for people not even invested in being Americans.
