Honesty is still the best policy

Several days ago a woman gave birth to a baby on board a China Airlines flight. Through media reports, we read about beautiful flight attendants and earnest fellow passengers all trying hard to help her deliver. What a heartwarming picture, right? Unfortunately the truth behind this touching scene was not so beautiful. The woman was a liar, who had tried to hide the fact of her 36-week pregnancy by wearing loose dress to get aboard and her sole purpose was to have her baby born on the American soil so that the baby could become naturalized US citizen. However, the baby came to this world a bit earlier when and where than her mother had wished. The airliner cabin where she was born is still considered the extension of the territory of the Republic of China, the country of origin which China Airlines was registered, so is the citizenship of this baby. The woman was deported by Homeland Security of the US two days later after the plane had landed in Los Angeles.

Is US citizenship worth of risking the life of your baby?
