  1. It sure is a bold move from the US and has been highly regarded by the country. Birth tourism has been a problem to the country and have been trying to lessen it’s rates during the last years. Since most cases of birth tourism happen in US territories the US can’t control all the foreigners giving birth which is giving the US a hard time to monitor.
