When a foreigner or illegal alien (non-US citizen) comes to the USA to have a baby for the purpose of making the baby a US citizen. The baby becomes a US citizen giving the illegal alien/foreign parent and their family grounds to come to and stay in the US and become eligible for government benefits. Also called a "jackpot baby".

an anchor baby is a term used for when an illegal alien mother-to-be hops the border into the country right when she's ready to deliver the baby, and gives birth to the child inside the country, in order to gain legal residental status in the country, due to her child automatically being a citizen of that country, by virtue of being born in the country.
That mexican girl's gonna drop an anchor baby.

What your girlfriend hopes to achieve by "forgetting" to taker her pill, thus guaranteeing that you'll have to spend the rest of your now ruined life with her... or that you'll have to run from the law forever to avoid child support.
I caught my girlfriend flushing her pill and poking holes in all the condoms... I think she wants an anchor baby.

anchor baby ONLY refers to children born in the US who's mothers are here illegally. the 14th amendment provides that any child born here is automatically a US citizen regardless of the mothers status as citizen of this country or not. the US is the ONLY major industrialized country that allows this practice.
Trump: no more ANCHOR BABIES!
Latino "advocate": you cant say that, it hurts my demographics!
Trump: fuck your demographics! the US is the only country that lets illegals pop a kid here who is then by birth a citizen and working people are tired of paying taxes to support that.

latino "advocate": wah! you're hurting my feelings!! quit stating facts. I need to enlarge number of constituents I have so I can be more important and lay the victim and race card when I need to.
