Democrats Plan to Provide Illegals with ObamaCare
Illegal Immigration is a destructive force for any culture or country. Destructive because it takes away the stabilizing affect of assimilation. If allowed to continue the host country will eventually be overwhelmed numerically and financially.
President Obama says his health care plan won’t cover illegal immigrants, but then argued that’s all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage.
“Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don’t believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken,” said Obama in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.
Obama added, “If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all.”
Amnesty for Illegal Aliens
What we have waiting in the wings is giving amnesty of all illegal immigrants so they can be covered under Obama’s new socialist health care system. No assimilation only reward for breaking the law.
“It is ironic that the president told the American people that illegal immigrants should not be covered by the health care bill, but now just days later he’s talking about letting them in the back door,” said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee.
“If the American people do not want to provide government health care for illegal immigrants, why would they support giving them citizenship, the highest honor America can bestow?” Mr. Smith said.
Immigrant rights groups see the speech as a signal that Mr. Obama is committed to providing health care coverage for anyone in the United States, regardless of their citizenship status.
Under the 1996 welfare overhaul, most federal aid programs are restricted to citizens and legal immigrants who have been in the country for at least five years. Democrats are in the process of chipping away at that rule.
Obama said legalizing illegal immigrants is a way to take the sting out of the entire issue.
Rep. Joe Wilson, South Carolina Republican, shouted, “You lie,” when the president, in an address to Congress last week, said his plans wouldn’t cover illegal immigrants.
Clearly, Joe Wilson was right.
