We the taxpayer are SUBSIDING the sub-standard wages paid to Illegal Aliens through medical care, welfare, criminal justice costs, and education. It turns out that the illegals are not even willing to do the “jobs Americans will not do” unless they are ALSO subsidized to do them!
Not only does this create a permanent underclass that is beholden to the welfare state, but also a situation where it is IMPOSSIBLE for lawful immigrants and citizens to even compete.
With Trump, this entire corporate welfare fraud crumbles and it will not only cost them TRILLIONS in free labor, but it will forever loosen their stranglehold on American political discourse.
A new Wall Street Journal Survey showed that 20 out of the 25 counties in the U.S. with the highest levels of illegal aliens are using state funds to provide healthcare for local illegal aliens. Participants in these programs, regardless of immigration status, receive healthcare services such as doctor visits, shots, prescription drugs, lab tests and surgeries for free or at an extremely reduced cost paid for by the local taxpayers.
The Congressional Budget Office estimates that around one-quarter of the approximately 30 million uninsured people in the U.S. are illegal aliens and federal policies have prohibited illegal aliens from using the Affordable Care Act to obtain healthcare due to the high costs.
For all 20 counties that were part of the survey it cost them a total of over $1 billion a year to provide nonemergency care for at least 750,000 illegal aliens. The majority of these bills were paid for from the local funds of those communities.
Andreas Borgeas, a member of the board of supervisors in Fresno County, CA, said that providing illegal aliens with healthcare has “created an ongoing entitlement that’s going to be difficult to sustain.”
