We Must Stop The Anchor Baby
By Frosty Wooldridge
According to the Pew Research Center, in 2008, 350,000 pregnant woman jumped America's borders or rode in on a visa to birth their "anchor babies" on U.S. soil. That practice continues for the past 30 years by hundreds of thousands and now millions of pregnant women who birth their "jack pot" child in the loving arms of American taxpayers.

Last year, 2017, according to the report, 270,000 women birthed their anchor baby on U.S. soil.
The practice costs American taxpayers trillions of dollars over the last three decades. Each child enjoys pre-natal, birth in hospitals and post-natal assistance along with K - 12 education, food stamps, Section 8 Housing, free breakfast and lunches, living expenses and more on the U.S. taxpayer's back. Years later, the child may chain-migrate his or her entire family into America, and they do by the millions.
In other words, America stands as the "charity ward" for the rest of the world. You may look up on line for websites that encourage anchor babies from China, India, Mexico, Korea, Brazil, Africa, and dozens of other countries.
Former Senate Majority leader Harry Reid used to rail against "any country that would reward lawbreakers with citizenship."
Journalist Kimberly Dvoark said, ""Birth Tourism" has become a billion-dollar industry due to America's lax immigration and citizenship laws. More than a half a million anchor babies are now born in the US each year, creating instant citizen status for the foreign parents who have foreign loyalties and connections."
U.S. baby births create big business, especially in China. On the website usbabydiy.com , you may access endless pages of advertisements for birth centers, many of them found in San Diego, New York and Miami. The ads offer room and board for several months, including, services for/after pregnancy and tout the best medical care money can buy.
"Your U.S. born baby will become a U.S. citizen," said immigration attorney Mr. Sapochnick. "Having a baby here, there's nothing illegal about it. It's just people are making it into a profit industry."
Sapochnick said, "Baby brokers can charge anywhere from $20,000 to $50,000 per family."
What Costs Do American Taxpayers Bear?
If you average anchor baby births at 300,000 annually, you're looking at 300,000 babies times $8,000.00 average for a hospital birth. The math staggers the imagination. If the child suffers congenital heart disease, cleft palate or other deformities, the costs rise into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Next, take that child through K -12 education at $8,000.00 annually times 300,000 students. Later, you must pay for English as Second Language costs at $2,000.00 per year per child. You also pay for that child's breakfasts and lunches for 18 years because its mother lacks any money to pay for that child or taxes. You're paying for its mother's housing, food stamps, electricity, heat and water.
To show you how corrupt our U.S. Congress proves itself, Georgia House of Representatives member Nathan Deal, 15 years ago, tried to pass a bill to stop the anchor baby practice. It still sits in committee. Another current member of the House, Steve King (R-IA), introduced a bill five years ago to stop the anchor baby practices. It sits in committee, untouched. For some reason, all 535 Congressional Critters failed you, the American taxpayer, for the past 30 years. Who allows it, what reason, and why does this financial suicide continue?
Five years ago, because Ireland faced being overrun and financially bankrupted by desperate pregnant immigrant women from Africa, they shut down "birthright citizenship." They became the last country in the Western world to stop it. Nonetheless, 38 other third world countries retain birthright citizenship, but they suffer such poverty and lack of medical care, that no one violates their borders to birth a baby.
What does the Anchor Baby Invasion Mean in the End?
Such callous disregard for legal American citizenship by our U.S. Congress allows foreigners of every stripe to usurp our borders and prey upon our educational, welfare and economic systems. A record 87 hospitals and ER wards bankrupted out of existence in southern California and Arizona, and more to come in Texas, in the past 10 years.
We're looking at parallel societies springing up in Spanish speaking and Spanish dominated slums in southern California. We see unsolvable homelessness, drugs use and illiteracy. Those persons lack any identity to America or allegiance. You will see more Mexican flags flying in Mexican dominated cities in California than Old Glory.
We also see Mexican nationalism digging deep roots into our southern states. Essentially, they re-colonize our four border states, slowly and ever so effectively.
The costs spiral into the trillions of dollars. For a country standing eye-ball deep in $21 trillion of debt, such billions and into the trillions of dollars of costs to U.S. taxpayers for anchor babies means endless loss of American citizen financial viability.
It also constitutes a denigration of citizenship because it begins with violating the laws of our sovereign nation. It abuses legal immigration by sidestepping the rule of law. It creates move poverty in those immigrant ghettos where schools cannot function. Once that poverty manifests along with commensurate illiteracy rates, you see gangs, drugs, violence and more welfare births.
Whether President Trump stops the anchor baby invasion by executive order or Congress stops it by voting to amend the 14 th Amendment, we need to stop the Anchor Baby invasion of America.
