Too late to be born in Hawaii

But if you had been interested in the 1960s, that would be another matter.  Foreign nationals, primarily from Japan, would fly to Hawaii and buy a birth registration for their child to obtain the benefits of being a U.S. citizen.  Listings were then generated automatically by the state and delivered for publication to local newspapers based on that registration of any child with the state. 

This process was available for a fee for anyone in Hawaii  that was interested in having US citizenship conferred on their child, regardless of where they were born.  This was so profitable that the Mafia ran it and made sure that there were no competitors to the syndicate in conferring this status on kids.  Pay the cash and automatic citizenship for most anyone during the 60s right after Hawaii became a state.  Mostly went to Japanese nationals but they would have just as soon sold one to someone like some a bank vice-president grandmother and a business manager granddad who were worried about a grandbaby born in Kenya.

So it’s too late.  Now.
