Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Words are just words, they are neither hate nor are they benign. It is how they are used that makes them hateful. It would depend on how you used the phrase "Anchor Baby" that would determine if it is or is not hate speech. You would have to look at your local/state laws to see what, when, where, and how hate speech is defined.
