NBC News has suddenly become outraged over birthright citizenship — not because the South has been “Reconquista’d” — but because wealthy Russians are now taking advantage of it.
“A growing number of Russians are coming to the U.S. to give birth,” NBC News tweeted Wednesday. “These kids will have the right to live and work here, receive social services and, when they turn 21, will have the right to sponsor their parents for an American Green Card.”

From NBC News:
It’s not just the Russians who are coming. Chinese moms-to-be have been flocking to Southern California to give birth for years.
What they are doing is completely legal, as long as they don’t lie on any immigration or insurance paperwork. In fact, it’s protected by the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which says anyone born on American soil is automatically a citizen.
The child gets a lifelong right to live and work and collect benefits in the U.S. And when they turn 21 they can sponsor their parents’ application for an American green card.
In case you’re wondering, not one mention of “Mexico” or “Mexican moms-to-be” appears in their entire article.
Here’s some reactions from Twitter:
Hahaha, the media is against birthright citizenship when it applies to the Russians that they hate so much.
Replace the word "Russians" with any other ethnicity and people would be screaming how racist this article is. https://t.co/90yVfRDQUf

Horrific. Subversive. A blatant attempt to game our insane immigration laws. We need to rescind birthright citizenship immediately and put an end to this! pic.twitter.com/sVLwzcR0zA

So, basically, @realDonaldTrump is running a business to lease condos to Russian women to come to the USA and have anchor babies and gain US Citizenship. Does this not go against EVERYTHING he has…. oh, wait… I get it…. They're #RUSSIAN and NOT brown skinned. https://t.co/amm8LmwMW0

Mexicans have literally been doing this for decades and you all LOVED it (more #Democrat voters!) Now Russians are doing it and it's a problem? Hilarious.
