View Poll Results: What to do with anchor babies
Deport all the anchor babies, and strip them of their US citizenship 65 60.75%
I accept anchor babies as US citizens will full rights, but I think the law should be changed. 16 14.95%
Anchor babies are US citizens. Even if they leave the country with their deported parents, they may come back any time. 26 24.30%

And why does everyone think that none of the anchor babies would choose their other country if they were sent home with their parents and raised there? There are people in Mexico who very much love their country and would not leave it, it's very possible some of the anchor babies would grow up loving Mexico (or whatever other homeland), and would not ever want to leave it for any American money.
Not only that but most would be taught the culture and language of Mexico through their parents so it wouldn't be hard to adjust.

Oh, then he is an anchor baby. don't worry, words can be redefined. Romney will be easily made exempt from being called the anchor baby that he is, simply for being white. it probably wont even be mentioned, because IOKIYAR.

They should apply for citizenship at 18.

It makes no sense to have them as automatic citizens against their will.

I'm still waiting for "malamute" to list the laws of all those countries around the world, I get back to you after I see that...

"Nationality" is different than "citizenship". When someone wants to reference something about nationality, they should say "nationality". Please try to be a little more correct.

If I'm not on your "ignore" list yet, I need to try harder...

I'm sure they don't see it that way. better an adopted child in the u.s.a. than a child of poor parents in third world countries where education isn't free, roads are hardly paved, Corporate air is barely breathable, and there is no chance your child will be able to achieve much in a world stage dominated by non-third world countries.
