    Report: Most illegal immigrants' kids are U.S. citizens

    Report: Most illegal immigrants' kids are U.S. citizens

    Updated 3m ago

    FAMILY UNIT

    Percent of households made up of couples with children:

    U.S.-born: 21%

    Legal immigrants: 35%

    Illegal immigrants: 47%

    Source: Pew Hispanic Center

    By Emily Bazar, USA TODAY
    Nearly three-quarters of illegal immigrants' children were born in the USA and are citizens, according to a report released Tuesday.
    Those 4 million children muddy the immigration debate, raising questions about enforcement and public services for illegal immigrant families whose members include legal residents, experts say.

    "Undocumented immigrants live in neighborhoods; they have kids in school," says Jeffrey Passel, a senior demographer at Pew Hispanic Center and co-author of the report. "That complicates greatly the difficulty of the task of coming up with policies to deal with this population."

    About one-third of the roughly 12 million illegal immigrants in the USA are women, and most illegal immigrants are married or living with someone, the non-partisan research center's analysis of 2008 Census data shows.

    Of the 5.5 million children of illegal immigrants, 73% were born here. In 2003, 63% of illegal immigrants' children were citizens.

    Because more families are made up of both legal and illegal residents, immigration enforcement becomes trickier, says Steven Camarota, research director at the Center for Immigration Studies. The center advocates reduced immigration. "Once kids are involved, it gets tougher to enforce the law," Camarota says. "It complicates it as a political and emotional matter."

    Although Camarota says there should be room for exceptions, "the presence of a U.S.-born child should not be used as an excuse not to enforce the law."

    Douglas Massey, a sociology professor at Princeton University, favors changes in immigration law that would allow illegal immigrants to stay legally.

    That way, Massey says, the taxes paid by newly legalized residents could be used to fund public services they use, such as education and health care.

    According to the report, children of illegal immigrants make up 6.8% of children enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade.

    "We don't really have an option other than somehow bringing these people above board," Massey says.

    The report also shows that illegal immigrants are more likely to live as family units with their children than legal immigrants or U.S.-born Americans.

    Nearly half of illegal-immigrant households are couples living with children, compared with 35% of legal-immigrant households and 21% of U.S.-born households.

    Passel attributes that disparity to the relative youthfulness of illegal immigrants.

    "It's a very young population, with a large concentration under 40," he says.

    MILLIONS of illegal aliens here

    400,000 anchor babies born in the U.S. each year

    If you want the federal government to stop spending your tax money on illegal aliens

    a Tea Party is a good time and place to tell them.

    The bigger YOUR sign the better chance a picture of it will get in the news paper or on the TV news.

    As far as I'm concerned it doesn't muddy a damned thing or raise any questions.

    The FACT is that illegal aliens are entering this country by leaps and bounds to give birth for the sole purpose of producing pseudo-citizens......based upon a gross misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment. It should never have been permitted to go this far in the first place.

    They are USING these children.......as pawns to try and avoid deportation, gain instant citizenship and full rights of citizenship while still maintaining their foreign citizenships, to have the American taxpayer subsidize every single facet of their existence, and the list goes on and on.

    And this exploitation....of not just these children but the American system and taxpayer.....has got to stop and it needs to stop yesterday.

    The bottom line is that these people do not belong here, period. They need to be deported or otherwise sent home and they need to take their children with them because the law says that they are responsible for caring for their own children until they reach the age of 18 years old.

    Later on, as adults, if the children wish to return to this country then maybe they should have an avenue to do so.....with CONDITIONS such as requiring them to renounce any other citizenship, prohibitions against allowing them to petition for legal status of any family member who EVER resided here illegally and imposing limits which restrict chain migration only to immediate family members if eligible.

    It would take but a few simple fixes and we would see this crap stop and stop in a hurry.

    If anyone on the other side says they are offended by the term Anchor Baby then agree to call them Gray Babbies after the misinterpretation of the law by Supreme Court Justice Horace Gray. The only IA parents who should get the benefit are those who have agreed to respect our jurisdiction by turning themselvers in to ICE to accept it's ajudication.
    I support enforcement and see its lack as bad for the 3rd World as well. Remittances are now mostly spent on consumption not production assets. Join our efforts to Secure America's Borders and End Illegal Immigration by Joining ALIPAC's E-Mail Alerts network (CLICK HERE)

    I think they're preparing us for non-enforcement of our immigration laws because "we have to think about the American babies."

    Tell me again why we are really worried about pirates on the seas? We are under invasion in America.

    The 14th Amendment has to be fixed to state one parent must be US Citizen. This is a magnet for illegals to come and try to anchor themselves via having babies.

    The medical system pays and permits these illegals, the school systems permit illegal parents to march their children into our schools, and they spend tax dollars everywhere these parents go.

    There is not E-Verifying the illegals in the workplace by law. Employers are not held to the letter of immigration laws.

    Then the 287g Program is being limited used by only a few police offices in the country.

    What is wrong with the above and who is footing the debt of illegals, medical, schools, benefits, employers reduced taxes, and the police offices?

    ILLEGAL aliens kids shouldn't be citizens because:

    The Supreme Court has never ruled that each and every person born in the U.S. be granted citizenship.

    In fact, the Supreme Court appropriately confirmed a restricted interpretation of citizenship in the so-called “Slaughter-House cases

    There are MILLIONS of ANCHOR BABIES in this country and when they turn 18 they get to sponsor their parents, grand parents, sibling and kids to come here. When that group gets their citizenship they too get to sponsor their parents, grand parents, siblings and kids to come here. It's called "Chain Migration", and it never ends.

    Are you ready for everyone in Mexico to come here ?
