Trump Blasts Jeb for Not Blaming the Correct Race

After Jeb Bush commented in the August Republican debate about Chinese birth tourists, which angered many in the Asian community, Donal Trump comes to their defense by insulting Mexicans with his tweet, “Asians are very offended that JEB said that anchor babies applies to them as a way to be more politically correct to hispanics. A mess!”

Reality

There is a very real phenomenon of parents from Asian countries coming to the United States while they are expecting a baby with the intent of securing American citizenship for their offspring.

But there are no reliable statistics on how widespread the “maternity tourism” trend is and which foreign nationals participate most in the phenomenon in the United States.

No matter how you look at maternity tourism, the impact on local, state, and federal  this is so small of an issue the only logical motivation is racism.
