President Trump STOPS Anchor Baby Scams by Illegal Aliens

One of the problems of illegal aliens is that pregnant women come into our country to birth their baby.  Then claim the baby is a citizen, so they have to stay with the new American.  President Trump, again on the margins, is stopping this corrupt practice.

KPBS has found at least four pregnant women who were turned away by Customs and Border Protection agents at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, even though they had been given a court date in the U.S. Some of those women say they were then given new court dates for the month after they would give birth. Others were never given a new court date and had their case closed by an immigration judge. [Emphasis added]

“We told them our names, and the official said that we couldn’t board the bus because I was pregnant and already 8 months along,” Karina said in Spanish. She’s an asylum-seeker from El Salvador. Karina and her husband fled their home country after she says gangs tried to kill them. [Emphasis added]

If we can not end the anchor baby rules, yet, then stop the women from creating anchor babies.  Democrats want an open border.  What do you want?

Report: Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ Stopping Anchor Baby Schemes

John Binder, Breitbart,  2/21/20    

President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy at the United States-Mexico border is ensuring pregnant migrants are not using their court dates in the U.S. to then deliver their children on American soil, thus securing them birthright citizenship.

Currently, Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy has made sure that southern border crossers claiming asylum are returned to Mexico or their native Central American country while they await their asylum hearings in the U.S. The policy has prevented mass fraud where illegal aliens are released into the interior of the U.S. only to never show up for their asylum hearings and never leave the country.

Local San Diego reporter Max Rivlin-Nadler now writes that he has spoken with four pregnant migrants in Mexico awaiting their asylum hearings in the U.S. who were given future court dates after they deliver their child in Mexico — a process to prevent border-crossers from arriving in America solely to secure their children birthright citizenship.

Rivlin-Nadler reports:

In July 2019, NBC News published a report that detailed the flow of pregnant migrants waiting in Mexico for their asylum hearings in the U.S. to make sure their children obtain birthright citizenship.

Last year, analysis by the Center for Immigration Students revealed that nearly 400,000 U.S.-born children to illegal aliens, foreign tourists, and temporary visa holders — often referred to as “anchor babies” — were delivered.

To date, the U.S. Supreme Court has never explicitly ruled that the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens must be granted automatic American citizenship, and a number of legal scholars dispute the idea.

Many leading conservative scholars argue the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment does not provide mandatory birthright citizenship to the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens or noncitizens, as these children are not subject to U.S. jurisdiction as that language was understood when the 14th Amendment was ratified.

For about two years, Trump has signaled that he has reviewed signing an executive order to end birthright citizenship, otherwise known as the “anchor baby policy.” That executive order has yet to come up for consideration, though Trump has signed an executive order that denies B-1 and B-2 visa applicants entry to the U.S. if they are only coming to the country to secure their children birthright citizenship.

Today, there are at least 4.5 million anchor babies in the U.S. under 18, exceeding the annual roughly four million American babies born every year and costing American taxpayers about $2.4 billion every year to subsidize hospital costs.

  1. The meaning of the 14th Amendment was twisted by the left. It never included children born of illegal aliens. All children born of illegals need to have their citizenship revoked.

  2. All of us have immigrant families, that came to this country generations ago. The requirements were simple, and maybe we need to go back to that one way or another.
    1. they had to be healthy.
    2. they had to have a way to support themselves for at least a couple of months. In other words money in their pocket.
    3. they had to have a talent that would be viable such as a craftsman a builder a fisherman etc. to support themselves.
    Nothing was free and their own health was an issue before entering the states from Ellis Island.
    I don’t mind helping people. But I do believe we need to keep our eyes on our country first. Military personnel are still suffering; young families can’t find work or feed their family; the elderly can no longer afford much of the health-care that is necessary to enjoy even simple health in old age; And yet…
    We give free services to illegal aliens; we pay for the hospital and birth of their children; we pay for their medicines and educations and much more…while much more of our citizens are ignored.
    Our ancestors knew it wasn’t free. Our ancestors knew they had to be prepared. Our ancestors had something to give back to this great country without taking something away first. It was not an easy Journey for some of them because some of them were turned away. They didn’t back talk us. What they did was take care of what they needed to be here and they came back again. There are many people in the United States where by their ancestors tried more than one time to be loyal, to be self-supporting and prove it. Grateful is the word. Not dependent.

  3. What happened to “subject to the jurisdiction thereof ” When pregnant women enter this country to profit from what is referred to as the “Maternity tourism industry” and then claim sanctuary for their child is nothing less than fraud.

    Are we to believe the mother’s home citizenship is of no value? Why should the American taxpayer be on the
    hook for other countries’ citizens?
