Households headed by illegal aliens have easier access to taxpayer-funded welfare programs due to the birthright American citizenship policy for the United States-born children of illegal aliens.

Research by the Center for Immigration Studies indicates that nearly 60 percent of households headed by illegal aliens are on welfare compared to fewer than 4-in-10 native-born American households.

The high use of welfare primarily reflects the low incomes of illegal immigrants and the eligibility of their U.S.-born children for welfare programs from birth. (Trending: Transgender Actor ‘Purposefully Misgendered’ By Airline Employee)

Illegal aliens’ Welfare use “primarily reflect their generally … low-incomes, coupled with the large share who have U.S.-born children who are eligible for all welfare programs from birth,” Center for Immigration Studies researchers Steven Camarota and Karen Zeigler wrote.

Additionally, the presence of anchor babies allows for subsequent sponsorship of their parents and relatives for green cards.

This system, which currently includes about 5.8 million anchor babies, costs American taxpayers more than $150 billion annually.

The legal status of birthright citizenship for the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens remains a topic of debate among legal scholars and has not been explicitly ruled on by the U.S. Supreme Court.
