    Plus the particular claim that the LA Police Department concluded that "A vast majority of gang members are anchor babies" is in the chain e-mail dissected in snopes.com: Just One State - Cost of Illegals in Los Angeles although in that one the claim is falsely attributed to the FBI -- Please do not be distressed by my suspicion that the information comes from a chain mail - those are very common and many people are taken in by them. It's not particularly unusual.

    Then you need to find the original article. Keep in mind that many chain mails try to erroneously claim that the content comes from newspapers, so my suspicion that the material comes from a chain e-mail falsely claiming that the info comes from a newspaper article is a well founded one.

    In regards to this: JDubsMom said: "Agreed. A vast majority of gang members are anchor babies, aka citizens by default who otherwise would not be eligible for citizenship due to their extensive rap sheets"

    You said: "Try the Los Angeles Police Department."

    I suspect you got this from a chain e-mail like the one dissected in this document: snopes.com: Just One State - Cost of Illegals in Los Angeles

    Snopes said: Heather MacDonald's testimony refers to one California study of one gang. The Mikkelsons of Snopes said that this gang, the 18th Street Gang, is likely the one with the highest membership rate of illegals

    Please don't reference chain e-mails as sources.
