Great idea! Citizenship of the child ought to be based on the citizenship of the parents.
but that's no defense for someone entering the country illegally to do it.

Get the government to go after the employers who hire illegals with a vengeance, secure the border, and shorten the amount of time applicants have to wait to be accepted.
Get the government to blame themselves and do their job according to the legislation they have on the books and I promise you that anchor babies and illegal immigration wouldn't be such an issue.
There is also no defense for people to lay the blame of bankrupt hospitals at the feet of birthright citizens and their illegal parents. There are many contributing factors as to why hospitals go bankrupt.
Yes there are, but the parents coming into the country illegally for the sole purpose of having a baby or getting healthcare are not helping the situation, they are making it worse.
Illegal alien mother sneaks across border and has a child in a Texas hospital. Child is considered natural born and is eligible to become president of the United States.

The best example to explain the 'anchor baby' I've heard is, do you feel it would be right if a female broke into your house, had a baby, then the law demanded you raise that child to 18 years of age, and sponsor all the immediate relatives of that child while you raise it?
