Airline Forces Passenger to Take Pregnancy Test Before Flying to US Territory


Midori Nishida, a Japanese citizen, was boarding a flight to the U.S. territorial island of Saipan in the Pacific when she was pulled to the side by airline staff. The Hong Kong Express Airways staff told her she needed to take a pregnancy test if she wanted to board. The test was in response to the island's reputation as a destination for women who want to give birth on U.S. territory, making them eligible for American citizenship. Pregnant foreigners aren't barred from the U.S., but immigration authorities can turn away visitors if they're found to be lying or come to the U.S. planning to have a medical procedure.  The Wall Street Journal
