I have read of young Chinese women coming to the United States to give birth and then I think returning to China with their babies. Their purpose is to give the baby U.S. citizenship.

Separately, I have read that China does not allow its citizens to have dual citizenship.

Which is correct?

@gollum,
Both can be correct.

America doesn’t recognise duel citizenship either, which is why Boris Johnson had to revoke his in order not to pay American taxes.

@izzythepush,
izzythepush-

I don't understand. I guess I will find a book to read about it.

There are people who are citizens of both the U.S. and of Israel.

I am told there are U.S. citizens who have volunteered and served in the Israel Defense Forces.

I am surprised by your statement that America doesn’t recognize dual citizenship. My impression was that the U.S. allows its citizens to also be citizens of another country.

@gollum,
Read this article for some background. The US allows dual citizenship, but you must pay US taxes. Remember that the rich and well connected can often get around any restrictions and if you can afford to drop your obligations, fly to the US, live here for a month, have a child and fly home, you are likely pretty well connected. This is not something the poor and middle class pull off.

I suspect that by the time these kids are adults Chinese citizenship will be worth a lot more than US citizenship.

That'll teach them.

@maxdancona,
Not the way their government treats their citizens.

Human rights are priceless.

No they aren't.

They are for sale at $12.99 per dozen pairs at Walmart.
