Study: Nearly 1 in 4 children has at least one immigrant parent
By John Bowden - 04/18/18 03:32 PM EDT
One in 4 children living in the U.S. in 2016 had at least one parent who was born outside the U.S., according to a study released Wednesday.
A Kaiser Family Foundation survey found that about 20 million children living in the U.S. in 2016, or about 23 percent, had at least one parent who immigrated to the U.S. Most of those children, 89 percent, are citizens of the U.S. themselves, the study adds.
More half of those children live in just four states: California (23 percent), Texas (13 percent), New York (8 percent) and Florida (8 percent), according to the study.
A common theme for families with at least one immigrant parent is the family looking for affordable health care, the survey shows.
About 8 million of the roughly 20 million children living with an immigrant parent were covered under either Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
The study states that cuts to CHIP or Medicaid would "increase the uninsured rate among immigrant families, negatively affecting the financial stability of families and the growth and healthy development of their children."

What dfwgator said.
Being conquered, slo-mo style.
Barbarian Invasion......mission accomplished.
I’m an aging child of an immigrant parent. She came here the old fashioned way.
I’m the grandchild of not one, but FOUR immigrants. ‘Rats better call ICE and have me deported. Oh wait, I’m legal... nevermind.
BTW: Don't ask them if they are a citizen as a census question
If mankind doesn’t live where the garden of Eden used to be, then they’re all immigrants- no such thing as ‘native so and so’- (Except for those still living where man first appeared at creation)
While the parents of the other three are saddled with crippling health insurance costs, for federally mandated policies, that they can’t afford to use due to extortion rate deductibles.
Maybe we should just take over mexico, and pillage their land, so we can at least make our money back.
An unintended consequence of that would be that all of those illegals, would no longer be illegals. They would be subject to the same government sponsored financial flogging that all of us gringos up here in del norte have been subjected to.
Of course the leftist socialist-democrats would be violently oppposed to this, along with their fellow violent socialist brethren in mexico.
My kids have 2 immigrant parents. My wife and I both came to the U.S. as toddlers. (legally)
Did you look at Figure 1?
Ancestry.com would be happy to tell you.
Got you beat. I am a LEGAL immigrant child of two LEGAL immigrant parents. More Mercan than anyone I know except one formerly active duty special forces sniper. That dude could whip your ass in church and everyone would applaud and want to shake his hand and buy him a beer.

Popping out anchor babies should be illegal. Deport the entire family.
Filipino Mail Order Brides are apparently a booming business.
My children do, my wife is Canadian.
Melania Trump is the first immigrant to reside at the White House, unless you count Louisa Catherine Johnson Adams as an immigrant. She was born abroad to parents who were both US citizens.
