Immigration experts: Jeb Bush had a point on 'anchor babies' : He was referring to 'birth tourism' largely among Chinese women. (SEUNG MIN KIM 8/25/15, Politico)

In recent months, federal authorities have been increasingly scrutinizing "birth tourism," which has been most recently tied to Chinese women who come to the United States and intend to return home with a child who has U.S. citizenship, which confers significant health care, education and civic benefits.

In March, federal agents raided multiple locations in Southern California -- part of an investigation that authorities say showed evidence of birth-tourism businesses specifically catering to the Chinese. The following month, the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Central District of California charged 10 Chinese nationals with violating court orders in connection with a birth-tourism investigation.
