Yeah ... but will we ever get rid of him

But, seriously, this is part of the problem. When Beckham's contract is done, he will no doubt go home to the UK taking his family with him. But the little girl is forever a US citizen and will be liable for US tax, etc. etc. when she grows up irrespective of whether she ever sets foot in the US again. That is why I posted this here. It isn't just an illegal immigrant problem.

Quick wiki verifies that this child indeed would be defined as an "anchor baby" by most.

Quote:
"Anchor baby" is a derogatory term for a child born in the United States to immigrant parents, who, as an American citizen, can later facilitate immigration for relatives.[1] The term is generally used as a pejorative reference to the supposed role of the child who automatically qualifies as an American citizen and can later act as a sponsor for other family members[2][3] The term is often used in the context of the debate over illegal immigration to the United States, but is used for the child of any immigrant.[1]

Correct in definition, because the child can more readily used to adjust status from a non-immigrant visa to LPR, and in far less time...

I don't think the taxpayers have to worry about supporting the Beckham's kid. Something tells me she'll be just fine.

If your issue is with welfare, then take that up with welfare.
