Someone lose their anchor baby?

What an unfunny joke. If it were an anchor baby, it wouldn't have been abandoned.

You people are monsters. I can't believe you would speculate about a child's immigration status when there are more serious issues involved like child abandonment.

Mariposa: don't take these anonymous racists seriously.

Obviously it is wrong to abandon a child, but at least she/he left it at a church, rather than in a trashcan (dead).

PS: the article says cops are looking for the mother. Not the father?

What I see hear is someone who is afraid and confused to something like that. Thank god they left the baby someone at Springfield Catholic church besides the trash dumpster. I believe that it's either a young girl or an immigrant or my someone who is afraid to care for a child or can't afford to care for another child or maybe have a dysfunctional family and felt like that was the best place for someone to find it.So we don't know so don't judge the women if anything find a way to help this newborn.
