A baby has been born in Florida with defects caused by the Zika virus after its mother traveled to the U.S. from Haiti to give birth.
The mother - who has not been identified - contracted Zika abroad before entering the country, officials said.
The child was born with microcephaly, a condition that causes babies to be born with shrunken heads and often leads to developmental issues.
The baby is the fourth child to be born in the U.S. with defects caused by Zika after their mothers contracted the incurable virus while abroad.
The Florida Department of Health confirmed the birth on Tuesday, but did not say when or at what hospital the baby was born.
The woman is a Haitian citizen, officials confirmed. It is not known whether she entered the country illegally.
The baby is a U.S. citizen because it was born on American soil, meaning the cost of the child's care will likely be covered - at least in part - by the state.
20 trillion in debt....we can't afford to do anything let alone absorb tens of thousands of immigrants on top of the tens of thousands (millions) we've already absorbed. It might not matter at this point because we, with the rest of the world, might be "circling the toilet bowl". Interest rates are either at zero or less than zero. Our answer to this is to continue the same practices and print more money. Interest rates, thus the economy can not grow because the US and other countries can't afford paying higher interest given the level of debt. Let's focus on getting the economy cleaned up, reducing debt and cleaning our own house first. Anyone looking to unemployment numbers, as they're reported, as an indicator of positive growth, needs to seriously look at how those numbers are put together....they're fictional.... based on unemployment filing only. The job participation rate stinks. Who cares if unemployment is going down if the number of able-bodied people in the workforce is at historical lows.
I hate that we're here, in this place with all of these challenges immediately in front of us. Americans have to wake the hell up and get a handle on how ridiculously bad the current state is. I hope I'm wrong and that somehow, well charge out of this without a major "crash". I just can't see a path to getting there, and even if I could, We're(the royal we) still doing the same things that got us in the mess......the definition of insanity.
All these millenials coming up....seem to think America has a NEVER-ENDING supply of money to take care of everyone. They have NO CLUE that all the green stuff obama keeps printing has no backing any longer. Nobody can seem to tell us "Where's the gold?"....
I just imagine CHINA has our GOLD...! Obambo made certain of that..!
COMMUNIST CHINA JUST GOT THERE DAMNED WORLD RESEVE CURRENCY STATUS- AND THE YUAN WILL BE THE NEW WORLD ORDER GOLD BACKED CASHLESS SOCIETY..!
JUST A HUNCH...
What's even more enraging is that CHINA DISPISES DISHONORABLE O'FRAUD - MONKEY MAN...!
Yes, but China is Maoist... they and Cuba are the only hardline communist left. So, of course the Marxist in the White House would support China's Treasury Notes being paid in Gold even though the notes are payable in "Federal Reserve Notes" ... worthless paper, fiat currency.
If Haitians are so poor how in hell did they afford this trip and hospital bill in the first damned place???
You will be helping to pay the hospital bill....bet on it
Plus help paying for the flight here and hotel, food and car rental or taxi service for all the family that came along; of which some will disappear into a sanctuary city nearby..!
NO: the baby is NOT "an American citizen because it was born on U.S. soil"!! He is a subject of a foreign country, just like his mother and father! The Fourteenth Amendment did NOT make illegals citizens of our country; it addressed freed slaves ONLY! Get with the REAL program. Sheesh!
I agree Melanie... However, until Congress is willing to IMPEACH half or more of the Supreme Court for Bad Behavior (see: article 3, Section 1, Clause1) there will be no reprieve or remedy for the abuse of our Constitution and bad judgment among our government leaders.
The present oligarchy of power rules us under the 'color of law'... with the not so implied threat to use force of arms to subdue any opposition. The power of the law is vested in HE WHO HOLDS THE SWORD... Presently, the people don't have a champion holding the sword of justice. We must first secure the power behind the law.... the Executive... We must install a President who is willing to administer true justice, thru the application of just power, too reign in criminal conduct.
The so called Anchor Babies may awake soon to find they are no longer considered US Citizens... and rightfully so. Those who think this cruel need to first look to their right hand and left... too see their own children, their neighbors, and friends, to justly weigh what is right and to whom their loyalty is due... it is not due to criminal aliens.
We are not the caretakers of the world... illegal aliens who abuse our laws should NEVER be rewarded for doing so. Citizenship is a great privilege and honor; it should be closely guarded and cherished. It isn't as of today, that must change, if US Citizenship is to mean anything in the future.
