As the US constitution guarantees automatic American citizenship to anyone who gives birth in the country, many pregnant women used the opportunity to have their babies there.
But on Thursday, the US said it would no longer issue temporary visitor visas to pregnant women seeking to enter the country for so-called “birth tourism.”
This new development has generated a lot of fears and reactions as many Nigerians said that the new law will affect many people who already planned to have their babies in America.
More reactions are still pouring in on social media as many seem to be complaining about such change in America policy for women who want to have their babies in America and thereby become a citizen.
This law of course not for Nigerians alone, it applied to all countries and it takes effect on Friday.
