A new report from the Congressional Budget Office revealed that there are an estimated 4.5 million United States-born children who were awarded birthright citizenship despite at least one of their parents being an illegal alien.
Such children, who were given U.S. citizenship simply because they were born within the borders of the country, are commonly known as “anchor babies” and are allowed to eventually bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to America through “chain migration.”
Released on Dec. 15, the CBO report confirmed that there are 4.5 million anchor babies in the United States under the age of 18. The CBO estimate does not account for anchor babies who are now older than 18, a number estimated to be in the millions.
Jessica Vaughn, director of policy for the Center for Immigration Studies, told Breitbart News that the CBO’s estimate of the number of anchor babies is low because it does not include the U.S.-born children who left the country when their parents were deported.
Because those children have U.S. citizenship, they can eventually return to America and sponsor foreign relatives through chain migration.
The CBO estimates that at least an additional 600,000 anchor babies will be born to illegal alien parents in the United States during the next decade unless President Donald Trump’s administration enacts legislation aimed at ending illegal immigration.
At the beginning of 2017, Rep. Steve King, R.-Ia., filed a bill that would permanently end the awarding of birthright citizenship, which would allow the United States to join other Western nations with similar policies. To date, the bill has not moved in the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security.
