Once again the Obama administration has demonstrated that it cares more for people who enter our country illegally and take jobs away from American citizens than it does for our own people.
The Department of Health and Human Services announced that nearly $9M of taxpayer money will be used to help fund New Access Point programs targeting services to migrant farm workers, regardless of their immigration status. Health Resources and Services Administration spokeswoman Judy Andrews announced that the grant recipients will not check immigration status on people seeking services.
In other words, you and I are paying for free health care for illegal aliens while many Americans still cannot afford health care of their own.
Virtually every other nation arrests people who cross their borders illegally. They either jail them or deport them, but not the good ole US of A. Nope, we greet them at the border, hand them a welcome wagon package that includes free medical care, free education for their kids, and a free pass not to pay income tax on the money they earn here in our country.
Our government has their priorities all wrong. Instead of providing a free pass to illegals, they need to arrest them and throw their unwanted butts in jail. Then place a mandatory fine that must be paid before they get deported back to their own border. If they are unable to pay the fine, they are placed on a prison work program like the chain gangs being used in Arizona and other states, until their fines are paid off. Then ship their butts back home. Second offense the fines are doubled. Third offense is the same as many states three strike laws and they remain in prison for life without parole, but still placed on a work detail to earn their keep in prison. Then perhaps they’ll get the message that they’re not welcome here anymore.
