And the link at the bottom is an anti-illegal group. If truth be known I hardly doubt there is that much conern over any other Illegals other than Mexican, but they will continue to preach the other.

Speaking for myself: an Anchor is just that---------a US born child (of any race/ethnicity) to parents who are both here illegally.

This is a market economy, and only the most competitive survive. Migrant workers with their anchor babies assure us that there is an effort being made
for the earned money.
For this reason we may all forget that there are going to be any ammendments to the constitution, we need the migrant workers with their anchor babies!
Barinnas, with that same reasoning, if American citizens want to compete with migrants, we should consider living several families to a house, not having auto insurance, using the ER's for free health care. Is that the point you are trying to get across.

Anchors babies are U.S. citizes with all the rights and responsibilities that it confers, like the rest of us they are, and will be, protected by the constitution

I prefer legal migrants. They cause less problems.

The hammer is coming down to the illegals and their enablers.

Suffice to say: I will not be surprised that the Anchor Baby loophole will be closed (grandfathering in the existing ones)-------it has already occurred in both France and Ireland in just the last 15 years
