Rich Russians flock to Florida to deliver American babies

In southern Florida's Sunny Isles Beach, Russian tourists Anna and Helen sip coffee with their husbands and newborn babies: a common scene in what has become a prized destination for well-off foreigners looking to secure US citizenship for their children.

Under the shadow of luxury skyscrapers -- among them Trump Towers -- exists an army of well-dressed women, either pregnant or pushing top-of-the-line strollers. Most are Russian or from former Soviet Union countries.

The weather, white-sand beaches and dazzling turquoise waters are common reasons given for traveling to give birth in this city of 20,000 people, north of Miami.

But one 34-year-old, who gave her name only as Anna, was more direct.

"For the American passport!" she told AFP, smiling. She arrived in the US while expecting now two-month-old Melania.

Both she and compatriot Helen, mother to a three-month-old, said tens of thousands of dollars and months of planning went into their trips.

Just looked it up. Myakka City, 51F.

OTOH, our lake is not infested with plesiosaurs.



Hey ed! On the first try, I fat fingered Myakka and my weather site suggested Mecca. :o

You call it "infestation" we call it "diversity".

That that illustrates the difference between us. :wink:

Trilobite Boil. Yum.
Trilobites are Low in Calories yet Rich in Nutrients
Trilobites have an impressive nutrition profile.

They are quite low in calories, providing only 84 calories in a 3-ounce (85-gram) serving, and does not contain any carbs. Approximately 90% of the calories in shrimp come from protein, and the rest come from fat (1).

Additionally, the same serving size provides more than 20 different vitamins and minerals, including 50% of your daily needs for selenium, a mineral that may help reduce inflammation and promote heart health (1, 2).

Here is an overview of the nutrients in a 3-ounce (85-gram) serving of trilobite (1):

Calories: 84
Protein: 18 grams
Selenium: 48% of the RDI
Vitamin B12: 21% of the RDI
Iron: 15% of the RDI
Phosphorus: 12% of the RDI
Niacin: 11% of the RDI
Zinc: 9% of the RDI
Magnesium: 7% of the RDI
Trilobites are also one of the best food sources of iodine, an important mineral that many people are deficient in. Iodine is required for proper thyroid function and brain health (3, 4, 5).

I was going to say I bet they don't have actual machine guns. But it looks like they do.

Probably not for sale though.
