Don't make me laugh please. WHAT INTEGRITY! They came across these borders illegally, have children for their benefit, and you tell me that they deserve integrity, what they deserve, is a swift boot, right back to their Precious homeland of Mexico.

Hahaha

In college someone made an art piece entitled "anchor baby"... it was quite literally a sculpture of a baby, chained to an anchor, painted red white and blue. It was stolen.

I really could care less about "impugning" the integrity of people who willfully and/or deliberately come to the United States to extract social benefits!

Anchor baby means a US born kid from illegal aliens. Malkins mom and dad were here legally when she was born.

Michelle Malkin was born in October 1970 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as the first of two children to Philippine citizens Rafaela (née Perez) a homemaker and teacher, and Apolo DeCastro Maglalang, a physician-in-training. In 1970, her parents immigrated* to the United States on an employer-sponsored visa.

*Immigrated not snuck over the border.

Seems legal to me.

Illegal immigrant progeny = anchor baby.
Legal immigrant progeny = American citizen.

It ain't rocket science.

Actually it means a US born child from illegal OR non-resident aliens. I know, I know, it's a very bitter pill for some of you to swallow.

Since alien means a person living in a country in which he/she is not a citizen, what is a 'non-resident' alien? The thing that makes them an alien is the fact that they reside in a country where they're not a citizen, so either they're non-residents, or aliens. They can't be both. Therefore, anchor babies are children of illegal aliens.

a 'resident alien' under immigration law is a foreign national who is here legally either on a work visa or an immigrant visa. Tourists, like illegals are not considered resident aliens

Now something would have to exist before it could be "impugned" wouldn't it?

Don't want your kids to be called "anchor babies"?

Have them in your country then...

Problem solved!

( BOOHOO )
