THE JACKPOT ANCHOR BABY: TRANSFORMING AMERICA

Part 1: Accelerating costs of jackpot or anchor babies on American taxpayers
Every year, 400,000 pregnant women enter the United States illegally to birth their babies on American soil. Their children become instant citizens and their mothers become instant wards of the American taxpayer. They enjoy taxpayer paid deliveries in our hospitals, unlimited medical health, K-12 educations, ‘free’ breakfasts and lunches, ‘free’ English as a second language classes and assisted housing, food stamps and social security benefits.
In an excellent expose’ by Mark Cromer, www.capsweb.org, senior writing fellow, titled: “American Jackpot: Remaking America by Birthright Citizenship,” he explains phenomenon occurring only in the United States. No other country in the world allows it.
Only one U.S. House congressman named Nathan Deal (R-GA) has entered a bill, HR 1968 to stop this abuse of the 14th Amendment, but his bill has languished in committee for over 10 years: another instance where you Congress sits on its thumbs while you pay and pay.
Unfortunately, this ‘jackpot baby’ syndrome has continued for over 30 years and will continue until someone in Congress stops it.
“Indeed, the United States today stands virtually alone among power-house industrial democracies in granting unequivocal birth citizenship,” said Cromer. “The notion of being an instant American if born on United States soil has been so romanticized at critical junctures in our evolving popular culture it is now seen by many as a fundamental characteristic of the American identity.
“So there’s no small amount of irony in the fact that the policy of granting birthright citizenship in America has become a core gravitational ‘pull factor’ that has resulted in the largest sustained wave of mass human migration ever witnessed in the history of the nation-state; a human tsunami that has played a critical role in the rapid erosion of the quality of life that so many immigrants seek on these shores. It also increasingly poses a non-consensual makeover of the culture that American citizens had neither voice nor vote in unleashing.”
Dr. John C. Eastman, Dean of Chapman University’s law school in Orange, California, is a leading scholar in the nation on constitutional law and has testified before Congress on the issue of birthright citizenship. Eastman states that the framers of the 14th Amendment had no intention of allowing another country to wage demographic warfare against the U.S. and reshaping its culture by means of exploiting birthright citizenship. Eastman said, “We have this common understanding of when you come here to visit, that you are subject to our jurisdiction. You have to obey our traffic laws.
If you come here from England, you have to drive on the right side of the road and not on the left side of the road. But the framers of the 14th Amendment had in mind two different notions of ‘subject to the jurisdiction.’ There was what they called territorial jurisdiction— you have to follow the laws in the place where you are—but there was also this more complete, or allegiance-owing jurisdiction that held that you not only have to follow the laws, but that you owe allegiance to the sovereign.”
MASSIVE FINANCIAL AND CITIZENSHIP FRAUD
Anchor babies, upon birth in a U.S. hospital cost from $6,000.00 to as much as a $500,000.00 per birth depending on complications such as Down’s Syndrome, Autism, heart birth defects, etc. They also cost an average of $9,644.00 each year for their education and thousands more for English classes and breakfast and lunch programs.
“Dr. Edward J. Erler, a political science professor at Cal State San Bernardino, has spoken out against the political malaise and the popular misconception that has blossomed around the continued awarding of citizenship to virtually anyone born in the country,” said Cromer. “Echoing the sentiments of Eastman, Erler points out that the framers of the 14th Amendment sought to reassure the Congress in 1868 that the citizenship provisions did not cover—nor were they crafted with the intent to grant—citizenship to the children of foreign nationals born in the United States.”
“It’s difficult to fathom how those who defy American law can derive benefits for their children by their defiance; or that any sovereign nation would allow such a thing,” Erler said. “That it has been allowed to happen on such a massive scale and has even been encouraged by various groups gets Terry Anderson’s blood boiling. A life-long black resident of South Los Angeles, Anderson has used his talk radio show to decry not only the radical and rapid transformation of traditional black neighborhoods in Los Angeles and the erosion of the black power structure in the face of explosive immigration, but to blast the government’s policy of granting birthright citizenship to illegal immigrants, children by their defiance; or that any sovereign nation would allow such a thing.”
Cromer said, “Ticking off a list of impacts that illegal immigration has brought down on the black working class community—from increased competition for jobs to overcrowded classrooms where black students suffer under a bilingual curriculum—Anderson says illegal immigrants brazenly celebrate “hitting the jackpot” when they have a baby in America.”
“It’s wrong, it’s a misinterpretation and it angers me because that was written for my ancestors,” Anderson says. “And now it is being misused. They took an amendment made for us and turned it around against us.”
As a teacher, I watched the destruction of American classrooms in Denver, LA, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas and Miami. With over 50 different languages in major city schools, millions of fatherless children and no appreciation for or understanding of American educational standards and culture, those anchor babies slowly and today more speedily transform America into another country inside our own country. By 2042, Mexicans and their offspring will become the dominant ethnic group in America according to a recent PEW report.

As we pour over 240,000 legal and illegal immigrants into our country every 30 days, and allow this Jackpot Baby or Anchor Baby phenomenon to continue, American communities, schools and cities cannot, and will not enjoy a happy ending as our civilization balkanizes against itself on multiple levels. If you don’t think it’s happening, take a three day visit to Detroit or Los Angeles. Everyone is from some other country, few speak English, half of them can’t write their name in English and all of them are legal Americans.
