Verboten on CNN: “Anchor Baby”

Chris Cuomo didn’t get the memo:

Three years ago, CNN reported that the American Heritage Dictionary has reclassified the term “anchor baby” as “offensive,” saying it is often “used as a disparaging term for a child born to a noncitizen mother in a country that grants automatic citizenship to children born on its soil, especially when the child’s birthplace is thought to have been chosen in order to improve the mother’s or other relatives’ chances of securing eventual citizenship.” But as of yesterday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo apparently had not received the memo.

On at least three separate occasions Friday, Cuomo used the term “anchor baby” to describe the children of the nearly five million undocumented immigrants President Barack Obama plans to protect from deportation using executive orders against the will of the Republican-led Congress.
