Petition to Brian Birdwell, Greg Abbott, Byron Cook, Ted Cruz, Chuck McClanahan, Don Denbow, John McClung, Ruby Williams, Susan Hale, Connie Standridge, Marilyn Reed, H. M. Davenport, Kerri Anderson Donica
The leadership of Corsicana, Texas has decided to move forward with plans to house unaccompanied illegal immigrant children in the city against the wishes of the citizens of the city. There are claims of back room deals and secret meetings prior to the public announcement. These rumors came about when a couple of letters between Mayor, a local judge, and a State senator became public. It is time for the people of Corsicana and Navarro County to stand up and demand that our voice be heard. It is time to demand the resignation of those who will not listen to the people who elected them. We, demand the immediate resignation of Chuck McClanahan, Mayor of Corsicana.

Petition to The American Heritage Dictionary
In the American Heritage Dictionary the term Anchor baby is as defined - A child born to a noncitizen mother in a country that grants automatic citizenship to children born on its soil, especially such a child born to parents seeking to secure eventual citizenship for themselves and often other members of their family.
The term is a derogatory statement and should be labeled as such. The definition of the word makes it sound like the purpose of undocumented people coming to a country is to intentionally have babies only to secure them a spot for later citizenship. This definition is simply not true and it is no one's sole purpose to do to use their children in such a way. it's dehumanizing, an attack on an innocent child and says more about the user of such a term than the one being labeled.
So we need to label this term a derogatory or remove it from the dictionary!
