CNMI Indictment Highlights Lure of Birth Tourism


This month, a Chinese tourist to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands was indicted for allegedly operating a birth tourism business for Chinese women looking to secure U.S. citizenship for their children. The Saipan Tribune has the details.

As a tourist, Sen Sun was not allowed to operate a business - much less one that, according to the indictment, involved "harboring illegal aliens, unlawfully employing aliens, and money laundering."

The going rate for birth in CNMI? $15,000. Cash.
