My own home state of California isn’t even trying to hide its lunacy anymore.
We all already know very well that California seems to have a fetish for disobeying the federal, and even state, constitutions in the name of social justice and to get more Democrat voters. But now they have taken it a step further.
Illegal immigrants are not only a danger to society since we don’t know who they are, but they are also a huge drain on the American taxpayer. And now the former Golden State wants to make the drain even worse by mandating that American citizens fund Medicaid programs to include Illegal aliens from the moment they step on American soil.
This is a move that will mean that while citizens like you and me have to work our butts off each and every day to be able to provide health care for our families, all foreign nationals have to do is take a stroll across the U.S. Mexico border and they get it all for free.
The ludicrous measure was passed in the extreme far left California General Assembly. AB-2965 gives “illegal immigrants access to full-cost healthcare.” This was predominantly supported by Democrats in a 33-21 vote on Wednesday of last week.
Here is more information on this bill via The Conservative Daily Post:
“Many California policies are deliberate Constitution violations as illegal immigrants are welcomed in the same way that American citizens are. This not only endangers national security, but is also highly disrespectful to taxpayers given that they are essentially funding illegal immigrants’ lifestyles after they cross the border.
In the most recent horrendous California legislation passage, the state mandated that it will now fund its Medicaid program to include illegal immigrants.
This will now mean that while American citizens work hard to obtain healthcare benefits, illegals will automatically be granted such.
The outrageous measure passed in the California General Assembly, AB-2965, gives “illegal immigrants access to full-cost healthcare.”
Unsurprisingly, this was predominantly supported by Democrats in a 33-21 vote on Wednesday.
While former President Obama ensured that the average worker would be fined for not having healthcare coverage, liberals continuing his unpatriotic legacy are disgustingly proposing that those in the United States illegally will be granted such protections automatically.
This will obviously be economically taxing on the state and will cost it an estimated $3 billion every year that the program continues.
The only thing stopping this from coming to pass would be if the bill is stopped in the state Senate, again, an unlikely possibility considering the liberal lean of the state’s politicians.
While this robs the average taxpayer to benefit those who have in no way contributed to society, liberals who support the bill have noted that they do not fear that illegals will take advantage of the system.
That is a ridiculous anticipation considering that they already do exactly that in seeking emergency care and “health care at community clinics.”
Of course, there is a moral obligation to help someone who is seriously injured or in need; however, it is not Americans’ responsibility to fund preventative care.
Yet it soon will be in California, a sanctuary state, which will now take care of illegals above its own people, further encouraging illegal immigration from Mexico.
This will also encourage immigrants currently residing in other states to move to California where their healthcare needs will be met.
While it is only common sense to expect this, some Democrats in the state will defend such ideas in their continuing apparent desire to help non-citizens.
Thankfully, there are some who understand the importance of limiting immigrants’ rights.
Health policy and economics professor from the University of Southern California Joel Hay rightfully opposed the state’s need to continue to protect illegals, saying that the ModernHealthCare.com organization “hasn’t seen evidence” that illegals need any additional protections.
It should not require an official organization to determine this, yet it may be the only one that was willing to “question whether the law was necessary.”
However, necessity is apparently questionable under liberal logic considering that back in April, a judge unsurprisingly appointed by Obama mandated that pregnant illegal immigrants in U.S. custody may remain in the country to have abortions.
While many immigrants come to the United States to escape other oppressed societies, the way that liberals appear to be welcoming them undermines actual necessity and instead implies that America is a socialistic society which will assist anyone in need, regardless of urgency.
However, such protections are not extended to law-abiding citizens while “the proposal would eliminate legal residency requirements in California’s Medicaid program, known as Medi-Cal.”
Prior to the recent amendment, illegal immigrants under the age of 19 were entitled to American healthcare benefits, but the recent allowance now extends this to adults who should be held responsible for obtaining their own healthcare.
Of course, in siding with illegals, the California Immigrant Policy Center Deputy Director of Programs and Counsel, Almas Sayeed, defended such rights on the basis that mandated emergency care previously provided is “not the same as having a general practitioner” and that providing healthcare to immigrants “would be a systematic way to keep communities healthy.”
This is admittedly true not only for illegals but also for American citizens who cannot afford to provide their own healthcare.
They too would be admitted under emergency circumstances but would, of course, benefit from receiving preventative care.
This outrageous new provision shows that California has an unexplainable desire to help foreigners above its own residents.
This can be said to be a state-wide problem; however, the way that it is implemented promotes socialism on a national level.
Healthcare is in no way universal in the United States, unless, of course, one is in the country unlawfully.”
When I sit and look at what Democrat rule has done to my home state of California it just breaks my heart. Unless you are a high paid Silicon Valley leftist fascist you can’t afford to live here anymore. But if you are poor, or an illegal here you will be ok. The state is being overrun by illegal immigrant gang crime from ruthless gangs such as MS-13 but lawmakers are ok with it since they don’t have to live in the areas that are affected by these downright treasonous legislations.
