Illegal Aliens Should Not be Afforded Health Care that Tax Payers Pay for!
“Taxpaying families, already weighed down by bailouts and massive spending bills, cannot afford to pay for health insurance for millions of illegal aliens,” said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. “It is wrong to reward law breakers. The American people are speaking loud and clear and saying, ‘No health care for illegal aliens.'”
First, no nation can afford having the borders flooded with people who break their laws. Illegal aliens are criminals, just as thieves, murderers, etc. They are breaking the law.
Secon, we can shut down the border with Mexico (which is the problem right now) relatively cheaply. Finish building the fence from one end to the other, make sure it is well monitored with camreas, etc…and use Border Patrol to round up anyone that might breech it.
Once you shut the border down, then find the 11 million here and give them a choice. Return voluntarily to THEIR country and get on the list to enter legally, or be picked up and returned…with a lifetime ban of ever getting here legally.
Once the border is secure, the costs to maintain it will be miniscule compared with what we pay for illegals for health care, housing, etc.
Look, I dont blame them for trying to get here. They live in a crappy place and they want better for their families. I get that. But this isnt their country, it is ours. And our rules say that you come thru the front door, not thru the back. Your first act in my country is to break our laws, then I want you out of here. You have no respect for me, for my countrymen, nor my country. Thus, you should not become one of us.
Asked by CBS News’ Katie Couric in an exclusive interview whether illegal immigrants should be covered under a new health care plan, President Obama responded simply, “no.” But he said there may need to be an exception to that policy for children.
“The one exception that I think has to be discussed is how are we treating children,” he continued. “Partly because if you’ve got children who may be here illegally but are still in playgrounds or at schools, and potentially are passing on illnesses and communicable diseases, that aren’t getting vaccinated, that I think is a situation where you may have to make an exception.”
