House Democrats Pass Bill To Give Illegal Aliens Health Insurance, Refused To Give The Same To Our Veterans

House Democrats Pass Bill To Give Illegal Aliens Health Insurance, Refused To Give The Same To Our Veterans

What is turning out to be the way of the Democrats, they are ignoring us, the Americans, disrespecting our veterans, yet are willing to go out on the limb for illegal aliens, one has to wonder. When will this nightmare end?

In the most recent move by the Democrats in Congress, they voted on and passed a bill that was to be sent to the Senate, this was to provide free medical insurance to all illegals. When the GOP members agreed to work with them, then asked that all veterans be included in this bill, the DNC refused, the members voted to exclude all veterans. This prompted this response from Tim Burchett:

One has to ask the Democrats, “You claim the illegals are contributing to we Americans, but I beg to differ, they are costing us hundreds of billions each year, so how are we benefiting?

We are told that the illegals are contributing to the states and our union, but are they? Here is a breakdown of the cost of illegals on our nation.

Data from that shows what the cost of illegals is on the US and states:

The Cost of Illegal Immigration to the United States

At the federal, state, and local levels, taxpayers shell out approximately $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by the presence of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. That amounts to a tax burden of approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member and a total of $115,894,597,664. The total cost of illegal immigration to U.S. taxpayers is both staggering and crippling. In 2013, FAIR estimated the total cost to be approximately $113 billion. So, in under four years, the cost has risen nearly $3 billion. This is a disturbing and unsustainable trend. The sections below will break down and further explain these numbers at the federal, state, and local levels.

Total Governmental Expenditures on Illegal Aliens

Total national costs of undocumented immigrants

Total Tax Contributions by Illegal Aliens

Total taxes paid by illegal immigrants

Total Economic Impact of Illegal Immigration

While these are great numbers, they don’t include the wear and tear on our roads, our schools, or social structures, you add those in you add in billions more.


The Federal government spends a net amount of $45.8 billion on illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children. This amount includes expenditures for public education, medical care, justice enforcement initiatives, welfare programs, and other miscellaneous costs. It also factors in the meager amount illegal aliens pay to the federal government in income, social security, Medicare and excise taxes.


The approximately $46 billion in federal expenditures attributable to illegal aliens is staggering. Assuming an illegal alien population of approximately 12.5 million illegal aliens and 4.2 million U.S.-born children of illegal aliens, that amounts to roughly $2,746 per illegal alien, per year. For the sake of comparison, the average American college student receives only $4,800 in federal student loans each year.

FAIR maintains that every concerned American citizen should be asking our government why, in a time of increasing costs and shrinking resources, is it spending such large amounts of money on individuals who have no right, nor authorization, to be in the United States? This is an especially important question in view of the fact that the illegal alien beneficiaries of American taxpayer largess offset very little of the enormous costs of their presence by the payment of taxes. Meanwhile, average Americans pay approximately 30% of their income in taxes.

  • Federal Education -Federal Education is listed as spending $1.6 billion on schooling for illegals, it is broke down as such:
Primary and Secondary Education $943,200,000
Limited English Proficiency (LEP) – Title III$541,694,040
Migrant schooling (Title I C) $206,140,000
  • Federal Medical Costs are broken down as such:
Uncompensated Hospital Expenditure$8,200,000,000
Medicaid Births$1,242,990,372
Medicaid Fraud$3,458,475,000
Medicaid for U.S.-born Kids of Illegal Aliens $4,234,129,200
  • Total Federal Justice Enforcement Expenditures
Federal Incarceration $1,240,000,000
Enforcement and Removals $3,218,000,000
Customs and Border Protection $5,968,729,360
Other ICE Operations $1,126,840,000
State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) $210,000,000
Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) $168,120,000
Alien Minors $1,200,000,000
Byrne grants $16,920,000
  • Total Federal Welfare Programs
Meals in Schools $1,240,000,000
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program$3,218,000,000
Women Infants and Children $5,968,729,360
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families  $1,126,840,000

Taxes collected from illegal aliens offset fiscal outlays and, therefore must be included in any examination of the cost of illegal immigration. However, illegal alien apologists frequently cite the allegedly large tax payments made by illegal aliens as a justification for their unlawful presence, and as a basis for offering them permanent legal status through a new amnesty, similar to the one enacted in 1986. That argument is nothing more than a red herring.

Federal Receipts from Illegal Aliens

Taxes Received

Income Taxes $3,299,957,700
Social Security and Medicare Taxes$18,490,000,000
Excise taxes $401,140,000

Credits Paid Out

ACTC $4,200,000,000
EITC $2,543,200,000

Net Federal Receipts from Illegal Aliens

Total Receipts $22,191,097,700
Total Credits ($6,743,200,000)

This is just the federal level, you add in the state figures, the cost is far higher, so I must ask, how do we benefit from this?

The reason the democrats are so desperate to bring illegals into this nation is due to the loss of African American voters, a base they have counted on for years. During the Obama years, the African American vote for Obama was 95% of their vote in 2008, in 2012 this had dropped to 93% of the vote. The problem was in 2016 this vote had dropped to 88%, but this was not the greatest problem, enthusiasm, the lack of turnout was.

Today polling shows African American support for Trump rising, the Democrats could see the African American vote for them with a reduced turn out between 80% – 85%, this is unsustainable for them, so they have to seek a new demographic, thus the illegals are coming into play.

This is why the left is now demanding that illegals be allowed to vote, in some state voting they are now allowing illegals to vote in those elections, one has to ask, how hard is it for these voters to cast their federal votes at the same time?

We are seeing the reason the left wants to disregard our laws for immigration, why they are now willing to openly disregard our veterans and give their attention and time for illegals, they need the votes or the Democrats will soon become a party we hear in history but will have little power in Washington.

The left knows this, this is a war by the left to hang on to their power, so expect them to do anything, disregard law, civility, to act in a patriotic manner, they would happily sell out this nation if it meant they could hold on to power.

We have a new line of Tees to help with our expenses, if you would like one, please help us out and get yourself a really nice Tee.
