Wolves in Sheep's Clothing Sit at America's Door

Let's start with some brutal honesty...the on-going invasion at our southern border coupled with the fact that the border is still not sealed let alone indefinitely closed does indeed present both serious national security and public safety threats...including health threats...to our country. And sadly those who think otherwise are but paramount to fools.
So as the Democrats continue spewing out lies that we on the right are
insensitive sorts who are totally against all immigration, let me set
the record straight by saying that the only immigration we are against
is illegal immigration but that we are totally in favor of legal
immigration...as in follow our laws in coming here and you will be
welcomed with open and outstretched arms.
And herein lies the difference
between we on the right and the Democrats, for we true Republican and conservative
patriots want a country's best knocking on America's door...those truly
wanting to become American citizens and wanting to be part of the
fabric of this our American society...we do not want to become the
world's dumping ground for those with their hands out and whose palms
the Democrats “grease”
in exchange for their votes. That's not immigration...that's a payoff...I cannot say it any more directly than that.
only when those playing the political immigration game see that as
truth will any true headway be made in stopping the many wolves now at
America's southern door.
But if truth be told...as it
always must be...we on the right freely admit that we are totally
disgusted with how much these invaders...for that's what these illegals
are...cost we taxpayers...with that cost increasing every year. And when
you add in how much more it would cost if this newest round of
illegals...as in those who are part of what's called the “caravans”
...were let into our country...disgust at those numbers turns into bold-faced anger for a majority of us and very rightfully so.
look at some of those numbers...Judicial Watch reports that an in-depth
study done by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) shows
that illegal immigration...using a low-ball figure of 12.5 million
illegals currently living here...costs we American taxpayers nearly $135
billion every year, with state and local taxpayers now footing $116 billion
of that amount. Breaking it down even further you discover that
every single illegal living in America today costs each of we taxpayers
about $8,075 per year. And for those who claim illegals contribute to
our economy by paying taxes, the latest government figures show that
they only paid $19 billion of the total $135 billion number...a very
small amount indeed.
And if the current approximated
3.25 million young people who are still being protected from deportation
by the Obama-initiated infamous DACA program were added into that
numbers mix, we taxpayers would face paying an additional $25.9 billion
over the next 10 years if those who are called "Dreamers"
were ever to be granted amnesty or citizenship.
all of the above quoted hard earned taxpayer dollars are being spent on those who have absolutely no legal right to be here while America's
homeless veterans still remain homeless and too many American citizens go to
bed hungry each night. Something is so wrong here folks and it must
stop and stop right now.
Now let's break those above stated numbers down a
bit further especially in one key area where we taxpayers are truly
getting raped...the medical care aspect relating to these illegals.
Fact: right now taxpayer-funded Medicaid benefits are being given to
illegals no matter that certain Medicaid requirements actually
disqualifies them from receiving such benefits, and it currently costs
we taxpayers an estimated $18.5 billion a year...up from $11.22 billion
in 2016...to subsidize the care of those having no legal right to be
here let alone receive medical care.
And as the number
of illegals keeps increasing so do the dollars we pay out for their
care. And know it's our federal taxes that both directly and indirectly
fund health care for illegals via Community Health Centers, tax
exemptions for non-profit hospitals and other health facilities,
employer tax exclusion, as well as through Medicaid and Medicare
In fact, The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) recently released findings stating
the combined percentage of both illegals and legals on Medicaid together grew
from six percent in 2007 to 17 percent in 2017 (the 2018 numbers are not
in yet)...an increase of 11 percentage points while the percentage of
American citizens on Medicaid increased during that same time period by
just nine percent. In other words, non-American
citizens...illegals...are being better taken care of than we American
citizens are medically wise that is, and if that doesn't get you angry I don't know
And know that those coming to our country
legally but who are not yet citizens are eligible for coverage through
the Health Insurance Marketplace (and they may also be eligible for
lower costs on monthly premiums and lower out-of-pocket costs based on
income), and also through Medicaid
through the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) if they meet
their state's income and residency rules. However, while federal law
generally disallows illegals from being covered by Medicaid, a
little-known part of each states federal health insurance program for
the poor does allow illegals coverage, and that coverage pays out well
over $2 billion a year for said illegals 'supposed' emergency treatment
if administered in an emergency room.
Deemed “Emergency Medicaid” by the federal government...the folks flooding into emergency rooms... folks who really do not have true emergencies...are
according to participating hospitals mostly illegals... illegals who know that said hospitals cannot and will not turn them away.
And whose fault is this...in a word...Congress...as it was Congress who approved this “Emergency Medicaid”
insurance program after lawmakers required hospitals to screen and
stabilize all emergency room patients regardless of their insurance or
citizenship status...in other words hospitals cannot ask patients
whether they’re here legally or not. And with federal law mandating that
state Medicaid programs make what's called “Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) payments”
to hospitals that care for large numbers of Medicaid and uninsured
folks, these hospitals are then not restricted from using their uncompensated care
funds on illegals as the DSH Medicare and Medicaid payments they receive
indirectly fund cumulative uncompensated care losses they incur from
treated said illegals.
And for those who were still not angry before are you finally angry now?
should be, for those dollars spent on illegals would once again be so much better
spent on our veterans and wounded warriors...especially on taking care of those forced to navigate a
broken V.A. health care system for their medical needs while illegals
move to the head of the line.
Also, know that while
illegals are technically not eligible for direct welfare assistance they
do circumnavigate that issue as well for while U.S. immigration law
states that persons likely to become a "public charge”
words those deemed likely to be dependent on public assistance
forever...are ineligible for an immigrant visa, however, there is a major caveat
in that law. And said caveat is that those deemed refugees, asylum
seekers, or amnestied-in illegals are exempt from the “public charge” requirement.
And so the "free stuff" via our taxpayer dollars continues to flow into their greedy hands. And flow it does with 63 percent
of "non-citizens"...both legal and illegal...comprising 4.6 million households...being on some form of welfare, with that number growing to 70 percent for those living here 10 years or more. So much for "public charge." And these figures are courtesy of the last U.S. census.
isn't it, but what is even more amazing is that Congress alone decided who is
to be deemed what. And Congress also decided that it's “We the People”
who will be serving as the illegals sponsors, and thus allow them to keep their hands in our collective taxpayer pockets.
Never mind angry, you should be borderline if not outright fuming by now.
even if we remove the monetary drain from the illegal mix ask yourself
this...what does America have to gain by letting in the uneducated
unskilled leeches known as illegals...not a damn thing I would say. The
truth is we only gain by keeping them out and making it easier for those
coming to our country legally to do so...people who have something of
value to contribute to American society (not those forcing us to “press one for English”
) and who honor and respect our laws.
And the only way to do that is to build the wall, lock it down, and say “no more.”
And with that, now let's add into this mix none other than
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi who most likely will become the new Speaker
of the House...as in the House that controls our nation's purse strings.
So as the Senate is working on the
Homeland Security Appropriations Bill...a bill that includes the border
wall funding...a bill in which Republican senators are proposing to
fully fund the wall by taking monies away from illegals that they
currently get from welfare and such...Ms. Pelosi emphatically stated “NO!”
when asked this question by a Fox News reporter, “Would you be willing to support some degree of wall funding if you got a permanent bona fide solution on DACA?”
And so with that the infamous Nancy Pelosi promised that come January
the Democrats take back control of the House, the House will vote to
give amnesty to millions of illegals...especially those garnering DACA status...currently living within our
borders. And the rape of our taxpayer dollars by those illegals will
continue on as their hands push even deeper into our taxpayer
pockets...pockets held open by vile Democrat sorts who are selling
America out for votes. And even if President Trump uses the power of the
veto...which I'm sure he will...the damage will have been done for the
wall will remain in limbo and even more will cross the border illegally
and run to the open-arm safety of both sanctuary cites and states.
ready my friends as you know what I've said is true...are you finally
angry if not finally fuming...God I surely hope so for those moving in next door
to you could soon be illegals of the very worst kind...and they'll be able
to do so courtesy of the Democrats and your taxpayer dime.
