ANCHOR BABIES; AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY The biggest tragedy this country has experienced is allowing children of illegal American citizenship because of birth. It is a tragedy for illegal alien families because it, automatic birthright citizenship, separates families. For this country because their parents are citizens of other countries and subject to deportation as anytime. They are in this country illegally and working illegally and buying homes here and putting anchor babies in the middle. Anchor babies are put in constant fear, by their parents, of their parents being deported at any time. But, at the same time, anchor babies cannot be used as anchors for their parents to remain in this country indefinitely. Amnesty after amnesty is not the solution either to illegal immigration. Enforcing our immigration laws and repealing the 14th amendment is the simplest and less costly solution. Educating and providing medical care for anchor babies and medical care and incarcerations for their family members are the most costly to the American taxpayer.
