Underground "Birthing Tourism" Center Found in Los Angeles

Published:

SAN GABRIEL, California—The San Gabriel Neighborhood Improvement Service (NIC) and city police discovered an underground maternity (or birthing) center operated by a Chinese couple while investigating building code violation of several townhouses on South Palm Avenue on March 8. The topic of pregnant Chinese women coming to the United States to give birth is once again stirred up.

The five townhouses owned by a Chinese couple, housed 12 Chinese people of which 10 were women who have just given birth and 10 newborns, seven of whom were put in bassinets lined up in an illegally renovated kitchen.

The story was first reported by San Gabriel Valley Tribune (SGVT) on March 22. Dwight Chang, the property manager declined to talk to The Epoch Times. However, he was fined US$800 for violating building codes and operating without a business license, although he denied the charges, the SGVT report said.

Investigators said these women had paid about $35,000 to come to the United States to give birth, the report said.

On March 23, piles of Chinese-language newspapers and empty Pampers boxes could be seen outside the Townhouses.

Three Mexican workers were inside a house doing the remodeling work.  <-- Well, why not? In for a penny, in for a pound?

Say, I can think of some borders that need protecting and they're right here, not in some $#!^#*&% on the other side of the planet.

I hear we even have some roads and bridges that could stand a bit of repair -- if we can take some precious time out from digging up basketball hoops. Cussing Face

"Investigators said these women had paid about $35,000 to come to the United States"

They make like 75¢/hour - how do they ever save up $35,000??? I've never been able to save up that much! That's almost 23 years if they NEVER spent ANY of the money they earned! I recalculated estimating they might work 25 hours per day - 7 days a week - comes out to a little over 5 years. Much easier to believe they can do it! Now the only puzzle is how do they get 25 hours in their days? :)

Yeah, I agree about better border protection.
