Anchor Babies

Termed a politically incorrect term on the news right now. Not sure if the phrase "Free US entry baby" would be politically correct but certainly more meaningful as to what is going on.

But certainly an objectionable way for most of us that spend a great fortune, accused of fraud, had to sign our life away with that I-864, etc. to bring that special person here, legally.

Wonder if we can get a refund.

Around here, won't deport the mother, needed to take car of that kid, but do deport the supporting father. Mother is not pemitted to work so has to learn how to live on her child's Medicaid benefits. Eligible for government benefits, but if you bring a person here legally and run into financial problems, with that I-864, they are not.

Due to long USCIS delays in our processing, stepdaugther barely hit 18 years of age when her mom was eligible for citizenship. No ifs, ands, or butts. She had to wait another two years, 1,350 miles of driving for us, biometrics, interview, and an oath ceremony, but our fault for not living across the street from our nearest USCIS office. Also an extra 700 bucks for fees.

Also could not petition for my stepson, still a family member, very dependent on his mom, but barely over 21 years of age. We were strongly advised until my wife became a US citizen has they said this would be much quicker. So she petitioned for him the day after her oath ceremony. This was seven years ago, still waiting.

Maybe illegal is the way to go.
