Does The cost of illegal immigration outweigh the benefits when considering the cost of anchor babies? Studies are very muddled when it comes to this issue, some studies suggest that the cost of illegal immigrants outweigh the benefits, others suggest that illegal immigrants contribute more to society than they pay. what do you think? Yes they pay in more, No if they do not.

Health care costs probably trump what illegals pay in sales taxes due to the fact that illegals tend to live very low maintenance lives in order to send money home.

There is no such thing as an anchor baby. Being an alien with a minor child who is a citizen does not entitle you to citizenship or even to residency in the United States.

Neither Romney nor Malkin were born from illegal alien parents. Get your facts straight.

The 14th amendment is misinterpreted to justify birthright citizenship.
