No one is asking anchor babies to go anywhere but if their parents are deported and they are minors they belong with their parents so they should leave with them. No one is blaming the kids for the actions of their parents however in the case of their kids being here illegally also they need to leave along with their parents otherwise the parents are being rewarded by allowing their illegal immigrant kids to remain here aka DACA.

If they are minor children, unless their parents choose to abandon them, parental rights mean that they should go home with their parents. And definitely the parents need to be deported and birth citizenship tossed out.

And these anchors should not be allowed to sponsor these illegals so they can remain here.

I don't know anyone who blames the kids. It's not their fault they were born in this country to parents who are here in violation of our laws. In my opinion, their exploitation by their parents is repugnant. However, we need to end birthright citizenship, because illegal aliens and other foreigners are using it to the max to fleece this country. In fact, birth tourism has become a multi-billion dollar industry, and we cannot continue to allow that and the flagrant abuse by illegals to continue.

Anchor babies were not an issue prior to this unprecedented massive illegal immigration. But now, it is out of control, and certainly was not the intent of the 14th Amendment. No other country allows these brazen citizenship scams. Unlike us, they value their citizenship, and protect it from foreign scofflaws. They would never allow people to fly into their country for the sole purpose of giving birth. Nor would they be so generous with foreign interlopers. Anchor babies may be U.S. citizens, but it cannot be denied, their citizenship was obtained through illegal means. I honestly don't know how anyone can support this.

You're right. There will be more births, and we will continue to pay dearly. Frankly, I am sick of supporting illegals and their children, born here and abroad. We don't reward citizens for violating our laws. Likewise, illegal aliens should not be rewarded with citizenship for their children. It's a national disgrace, and a travesty.

Maybe its time to change the constitution just a bit.

It was an amendment to the Constitution and its intent was not to make instant citizens out of babies born from illegal immigrants. All it needs to is be brought before the Supreme Court and clarified once and for all.

Some hotels offer package deals for birth tourism. Asian and Middle Eastern countries are the ones who take advantage of this for the most part. For a set price the mother gets a hotel room, doctor, hospital and all the attendant services that go with a birth. When they're able to travel, the mother takes the baby and returns home. When the child comes of age, and even though they've never lived here, they can sponsor the parents, and other family members to come to this country.

That's why so many of the wealthy have babies here. It's viewed as a kind of insurance. If things don't work out in their own country, they've got their children a handy US birth certificate and sponsors.

It's exactly how a large number now can come over legally -- the child may not know a word of English but has US citizenship and can simply move on over --- and bring the parents of course.
