The number of United States-born children who were given birthright citizenship despite at least one of their parents being an illegal alien living in the country now outnumbers one year of all American births. A new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report reveals the booming number of U.S.-born children to illegal aliens who are given automatic citizenship, forever anchoring their families in the U.S. These children are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they are able to eventually bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. through the process known as “chain migration.” Every two new immigrants to the U.S. brings an estimated seven foreign relatives with them. In 1993, former Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) famously said on the Senate floor that “no sane country” would grand birthright citizenship to anchor babies. There are at least 4.5 million anchor babies in the U.S. under the age of 18-years-old, according to the CBO. This estimate does not include the potentially millions of anchor babies who are older than 18-years-old, nor does it include the anchor babies who are living overseas with their deported foreign parents. The 4.5 million anchor babies estimate exceeds the four million American children born every year. In the next decade, the CBO estimates that there will be at least another 600,000 anchor babies born in the U.S., which would put the anchor baby population on track to exceed annual American births — should the U.S. birth rate not increase — by more than one million anchor babies. Already, the anchor baby population exceeds the entire population of Los Angeles, California and is roughly half of the population of New York City. As Breitbart News reported, a decade of chain migration, allowing newly naturalized immigrants to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives with them, has exceeded two years of all American births. Altogether, chain migration since 2005 has imported roughly 9.3 million foreign nationals to the U.S.
How insane is that?!? This anchor-baby nonsense is beyond out of control. And, Congress needs to act to close that loophole in our broken immigration laws/system. But, in the short term, and as we’ve been saying here at The Daily Buzz from day one… It is WAY past time that we BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico. Then, those troops need to remain ON the border to ensure that would-be crossers are unable to set one foot on U.S. soil, until that wall/fence is finally built above, and below ground (to prevent tunneling)…however long that takes. Again, it is imperative that the Guard troops be ON the border; not back 40 miles or so as has been the practice in the past. Once illegals get a foot on U.S. soil, they immediately become entitled to all sorts of monetary and legal protections that we, the actual citizens of America, pay for. And, until Congress can fix that loophole, and the courts support such legislation, the best thing we can do is enforce existing law already on the books (something Obama wouldn’t even do), and secure our southern border. With all of the Islamo-fascist nutcases out there trying to get into our country, Homeland Secutrity should make securing our southern border it’s #1 national security priority. Period! In addition to getting that wall built, we need to be deporting illegals by the hundreds of thousands (and yes, you read that correctly) paying particular attention to known gang members, convicted criminal aliens (after securing biometric data like finger prints etc. to track them should they return), and those already determined by an immigration judge to be deported…regardless of age or gender. And that’s just for starters folks! To do anything less is NOT in our country’s national security, or economic, interests. Of course we support legislative initiatives like the so-called “Kate’s Law” and other legislative efforts at the federal and state levels aimed at addressing the illegal immigration crisis in our country, as well as social security fraud and other areas which illegals exploit, and we pay for.
