Number of “Anchor Babies” Continues to Rise

Posted on August 11, 2010

Some astonishing statistics were released by the Pew Hispanic Center today with further reporting by USA Today

The total number of children in the USA born to illegal immigrants on U.S. soil jumped to 4 million in 2009, up from 2.7 million in 2003, a report released Wednesday estimates. Those children — who are automatically granted U.S. citizenship — represent 5.4% of all children under the age of 18 in the U.S. That compares to 3.7% six years earlier, according to data from the non-partisan Pew Hispanic Center. That percentage will continue rising, as an estimated 340,000 of the 4.3 million babies born in the U.S. in 2008 alone — about 8% — came from illegal immigrant parents, the report says.  (emphasis mine) 

The number of children born to illegals keeps increasing.   In a lot of cases, it is done purposefully as this 2008 CBS News Report shows:

 Contrary to the woman’s belief that God will help U.S. citizens be less resentful of herself, and those like her, who come illegally for the sole purpose of having a baby who is automatically granted U.S. citizenship, the opposite seems to be true.  Because of the rise in births to illegal immigrants, and now, also those who come here legally planning to give birth, talk is heating up about changing the 14th Amendment all together.
