NEW DATA: 7% Of Births In The US Are Anchor Babies (auto-on audio)

That sound you hear is your taxpayer dollars being flushed down the toilet:
Seven percent of births in the U.S. in 2014 were children born to illegal immigrants, also know as “anchor babies,” according to new data from Pew Research Center.
The U.S. had some four million births in 2014. Of those births, 247,000 were to women living in the U.S. illegally, according to Pew’s estimates. That’s 7 percent of the total, and 32 percent of all births to immigrant mothers.
Such children are often called “anchor babies” because U.S. law automatically confers citizenship on them. Having children who are U.S. citizens can serve as a barrier to deporting people who are otherwise in the U.S. illegally. Once the children become adults, they can also sponsor the legal immigration of foreign family members into the U.S.
