Taipei, Oct. 18 (CNA) A Taiwanese woman who gave birth on a Los
Angeles-bound plane earlier this month was sent home by United States authorities late Saturday, but it is not known why she was deported, Taiwan’s aviation police said Sunday.
The woman did not violate the immigration law of the Republic of China (Taiwan) by giving birth during a flight, but further investigation is required to determine why the U.S. denied her entry, according to Aviation Police Bureau officer Chen Hsiu-tzu (陳秀子).
On arrival in Taiwan Saturday night, the woman told the aviation police that her baby girl was being taken care of by a friend in the U.S., but she declined to speak to reporters. [FULL STORY]
