There are some 250,000 United States-born children of illegal aliens enrolled or eligible for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program living across 37 states, data reveals.
Data collected by the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, reveals that there are about 238,770 U.S.-born children of DACA illegal aliens — commonly referred to as “anchor babies” — living across 37 states, though the total is likely higher, as some estimates are based on low population estimates.
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.”
DACA anchor babies are primarily concentrated in five states: Arizona, California, Illinois, North Carolina, and Texas.
In Texas, alone, there are at least 46,700 DACA anchor babies, while the sanctuary state of California is home to an estimated 72,600 DACA anchor babies. Illinois, a sanctuary state, is home to more than 15,000 DACA anchor babies, and another 12,200 live in Arizona.
