anchor baby
 n.— «Next year the nativists will attack babies, or as they so eloquently refer to them as: “anchor babies.”…Let me clarify though, they don’t mean white babies, just the brown ones.…Color is important here because the 14th amendment was added to the U.S. Constitution to insure that the children of slaves, who were black, were given citizenship by the states, who were run by whites. That’s why it was added, but no where does it say that that is its sole intended use, or that it cannot apply in any other context namely to children of immigrant parents.» —“The Crack Cocaine of the Nativists Movement” by Daniel Maldonado Aztlan Electronic News Nov. 22, 2006.
