Every Year, 300K 'anchor babies' Born in U.S.

An analysis of United States Census Bureau statistics revealed that nearly 300,000 “anchor babies” – children born to illegal aliens in the U.S. – add to the U.S. population annually, with about 20 percent of all births in America being born to legal or illegal immigrants.
And with President Donald Trump’s “tough on immigration” agenda being countered by pro-immigration/open borders Democrats at every turn, the trend is no different this year.
“[A]bout 124,000 children of illegal aliens – commonly referred to as ‘anchor babies,’ – have been born in the United States this year thus far,” Breitbart News reported from an analysis of Census Bureau figures. “In the first five months of 2019, about 124,000 children of illegal aliens were born on U.S. soil, thus solidifying their permanent American citizenship due to the nation’s birthright citizenship policy.”
Perpetuating trend within U.S. borders
The shocking figures derived from government statistics put the numbers into perspective and reveal that approximately 25,000 anchor babies are born on American soil on a monthly basis.
“The 297,000 births per year to illegal immigrants is larger than the total number of births in any state other than California and Texas, [and] larger than the total number of births in 16 states plus the District of Columbia, combined,” Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) Director of Research Steven A. Camarota disclosed in a report. “The estimated 28,000 births to illegal immigrants in just the Los Angeles metro area is larger than the total number of births in 14 states and the District of Columbia.”
Even though it is taken for granted that anchor babies automatically become U.S. citizens because they are born on American soil, a closer review of the law shows otherwise.
“The Supreme Court has never explicitly ruled that the children of illegal aliens must be granted birthright citizenship, and many legal scholars dispute the idea,” Breitbart’s John Binder pointed out. “The children of illegal aliens – after being granted birthright citizenship – are able to anchor their illegal alien and non-citizen parents in the U.S. and, eventually, are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country through the legal immigration process known as ‘chain migration.’”
While the debate over anchor babies rages on, millions are being added to the U.S. population – at taxpayers’ expense – despite Trump’s promise to put an end to the practice.
“Today, there are at least 4.5 million anchor babies in the U.S. – exceeding the annual roughly four million American babies born every year and costing American taxpayers about $2.4 billion every year to subsidize hospital costs,” Binder added. “Though President Donald Trump has routinely denounced birthright citizenship, his promise in October 2018 to end the policy has yet to come to fruition.”
