Is having my baby in the United States Legal?

In an increasingly interconnected world, parents are exploring every available option to secure the best possible future for their children. One avenue that has gained prominence in recent years is medical tourism for childbirth in the United States. Doctores Para Ti, a leading obstetrics and gynecology clinic located in El Paso, Texas, facilitates this process for expectant parents who seek to provide their children with the privilege of US citizenship. This page talks about birthright citizenship and answers the question of whether it is legal for foreigners to have their babies in the United States. However, as with any legal matter, there are intricacies and considerations to be aware of.

Understanding Birthright Citizenship

Birthright citizenship is a legal concept that grants automatic citizenship to individuals born within the territorial confines of a particular country. The United States is one such nation that practices birthright citizenship[1], meaning that anyone born on US soil is entitled to US citizenship, regardless of their parents’ citizenship or legal status[2]. This principle is enshrined in the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution[3],  “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside”[4][5]. It’s important to understand that the Constitution stands as the highest law of the land, meaning no laws can override it. This principle is often referred to as the Supremacy Clause.
