Do Illegal Aliens Have A Constitutional Right To Health Insurance?

October 9, 2009

 cba1642b0d916fc939b3343ff9ffec6e

The O’Reilly Factor had the Fox News senior judicial correspondent Judge Andrew Napolitano on the show last night. He claimed that it would be unconstitutional for Congress to ban illegal aliens from participating in any health insurance plans, particularly the public option. He based his analysis on the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection clause. A constitutional law professor who was also on the show essentially echoed Napolitano’s opinion without adding anything of substance.

First off, with all due respect to Judge Napolitano and the law professor, I would have preferred some constitutional law heavyweights to argue the issue from a liberal and conservative point of view — for example, Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe and Robert Bork. That would have made for a lively and much more informed discussion.

As for the substance  of Judge Napolitano’s argument, the Fourteenth Amendment provision he cited states as follows:

[n]o State shall . . . deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.   (Emphasis added)

Napolitano argued that, since the term “person” rather than “citizen” is used in this provision, illegal immigrants cannot be denied core government benefits while they reside in this country; i.e., their illegal status does not matter when it comes to government entitlements that other persons in the United States receive. He referenced a Supreme Court decision holding that children of parents who are illegal immigrants cannot be denied a public education. 

Napolitano’s  reasoning is faulty on several counts.  First of all, the case that he was most likely thinking of — Plyler v. Doe — was the product of a much more liberal court and even then was decided in 1982 by a 5-4 vote.  It is ripe for being overturned by the more conservative Roberts Court, especially given the sharp increase in the number of illegal aliens in this country since 1982 — a number that would swell still further if those illegals become entitled to the same health benefits as U.S. citizens and other legal residents. 

 Secondly, the Plyler decision focused on:

the discrete class of children not accountable for their disabling status. These children can neither affect their parents’ conduct nor their own undocumented status. (Emphasis added)

Napolitano is extending that reasoning to protect the adults who violated the law and are accountable for their actions, as well as their children. At most, if the Plyler case remains intact, only the children (who “can neither affect their parents’ conduct nor their own undocumented status”) should be permitted access to insurance coverage.  As I said, I expect that this decision will be overturned — or at least considerably narrowed to apply only to  its unique facts.

Third, even this case recognized that illegal aliens are not constitutionally entitled to all government benefits.  Congress is entitled to draw distinctions among classes of persons, where the distinctions have a rational basis that advances a legitimate government purpose. If this were not true, then Social Security benefits would have to be made available to all illegal aliens, and it would not be illegal for employers to hire illegal aliens — an oxymoron to say the least. The net effect would be to reward those who had managed to enter and stay in this country illegally — rendering them de facto legal residents for all intents and purposes.

Fourth, illegal aliens already have access to some measure of health care — the emergency rooms of hospitals — in the event that they need medical attention.  Opening up the public option, if there is one, to illegal aliens will only encourage even more illegal immigration. In addition, it will overwhelm the health system with far more people seeking medical services than there are doctors to supply them, forcing the rationing of care that will impinge on the health and well-being of all legal residents in this country.

Having said all this, it is quite possible that Judge Napolitano will end up being right after all.  But the multi-faceted dimensions of this complex legal issue deserved more than the superficial discussion we heard on The O’Reilly Factor.

    Yes, Read the 44th amendment. Also, see the 45th amendment that says everyone gets a house. And the 46th that says Fox news is banned in the US. Why are we even having this discussion? The constitution applies to CITIZENS of the United States of America.

        That raises a very interesting point ma’am. Does the constitution levy jurisdiction of the US government over all lands percieved as US territory? Yes. I believe you are begging the question; does the US governments jurisdiction include all actions taken on and therefore by those on said territory or just to those naturalized citizens thereof? If we set the precident that the constitution conveys jurisdiction to the US government to anything and one on it’s territory, then we must immediately arrest and charge all illegal immigrants for violations pertaining (but not limited) to US territorial law. It is illegal to be in the US without a visa if one is not a naturalized citizen. So, we do not need to worry about “healthcare” which implies wellness care, etc. Once an illegal is stabilized, they should be arrested and deported (which is the penalty for such a violation). Amazingly, that’s exactly the system we have in place. So, are the neo commies blatently ignoring US law? If so, shouldn’t they be held accountable for such actions.

          In the know, I agree…and I thought (from my HS civics) anyone in the US was subject to our constitution (rights + responsibilities).

          Another question arises… while they are detained in our jails, do they receive the same health care as other citizen detainees?

        Julie;

        Assuming that you accept the premise that the government that our founding fathers envisioned, was supposed to protect the individual rights of its citizens, rather than “take care of us” in some kind of a nanny state, isn’t the original question, in the context of this blog moot ?

        I don’t have the right to break into my neighbor’s house to take money from him to pay for the medical care that I NEED.. right ?

        If that’s the case, then how can I delegate a right that I don’t have to my government ?

        So since the rights of a government in a free country are the rights delegated to it by its own citizens, how can anyone in this country, citizen or not, have a constitutional right to ANYTHING that someone else must be forced to pay for ?

        We keep discussing the minutia of these questions every day without ever looking at the philosophical foundation of the question under discussion…. Every single day I hear politicians, pundits, and the media on ALL sides of the issue, argue about what’s the best way for the government to make sure that everyone is covered….

        WHERE THE HELL DID ANYONE GET THE IDEA THAT ANYONE IS “ENTITLED” TO SOMETHING FOR NOTHING ???

        My grandparent’s, and my parent’s generation, the ones who created America’s economic might, and who defeated our enemies in WWI & WWII, NEVER GOT A DAMNED THING FROM THE GOVERNMENT ?

        When they came here, LEGALLY I might add, they were happy to come to a new world were they were free to achieve whatever they wished…. They asked for nothing and were given nothing… Street signs and schoolbooks were not printed in Russian, German, Italian, or Chinese… It was survival of the fittest.. and that’s the way it should be.. even today..

    “Nor deny to any person WITHIN ITS JURISDICTION the equal protection of the laws.” (emphasis added)

    This is a key element of the amendment’s wording. Most conservative constitutional scholars hold that illegal aliens are by legal definition not under the jurisdiction of the United States government. This amendment therefore explicitly does not apply to them. Judge Napolitano appears to be ignorant of this.

      I have to respectfully disagree the judge is relying on judicial precedent that has become to dominant over the actual law which is the constitution. Iagree with you in sentiment but I understand where the judge is coming from and is simply reflecting the reality of the present day. But hopefully it will change

  6. October 9, 2009 8:51 pm

    Not Every Person Is A Citizen vs. Every Citizen Is A Person… Or, What Does ‘Original Intent’ Mean If It Does Not Mean ONLY What It Means?

    “[n]o State shall . . . […] deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    “Napolitano argued that, since the term “person” rather than “citizen” is used […] their illegal status does not matter […].

    “He referenced a Supreme Court decision holding that children of parents who are illegal immigrants cannot be denied a public education.”

    Sometimes… aargh… Judge Napolitano referenced a weird, WEIRD decision of SCOTUS, but he did not reference the 14th amendment as written and to whom it was written, and by extrapolation, their children and their children’s children, us.

    Does Judge Napolitano really believe in his inner man that the writers of the 14th amendment were looking forward 100+ years and stipulating before the fact that ‘person’ included more than a USA ‘citizen’ and was also going to apply to citizens of other sovereign countries who ‘hop-the-border-and-drop’ an anchor baby… the political equivalent of a ‘break and enter’ into a private residence, who then claims ownership rights because they managed to break and enter the side window, so now the owner of the private residence must house, clothe, feed, medicate, educate… and provide a driver’s license?

    Is that dumb, or what?

    In which ancient document did the writers of the 14th amendment find the idea that future judges would point back to and use to assert that ‘living document’ meant that what judges decided was what made the constitution alive and not the amendment process?

    In which ancient document did the SCOTUS find 5 to 4 justification for the WEIRD idea that ‘person’ did not mean ONLY a ‘citizen’ of the USA and included hop-and-drop’ anchor babies of illegal aliens?

    Since there has been no amendment added to clarify the basic common sense CITIZEN PERSON ‘original intent’ of the 14th amendment, ‘original intent’ takes precedence over illegal alien ‘hop-and-drop’ anchor babies.

    Just because a prior group of 9 judges in a 5 to 4 decision said ‘person’ means more than USA ‘citizen’ and also includes ‘hop-and-drop’ anchor babies of illegal aliens does NOT make it so… and Judge Napolitano should know better since he is educated in US Law… but, maybe THAT is the problem today with both federal and state court systems?

    The law is the law, but sometimes educated jurists make dumb, dumb, DUMB politically correct decisions… and educated and good men and women just can’t see the forest for the trees, until normal people who are not educated in US Law point out the obvious and common sense ‘original intent’ of basic words.

    Come on, Judge Napolitano, step back and look at the bigger picture… it’s as clear as common sense ‘original intent’ words can make it.

      How can the constitutional language………..

      “[n]o State shall . . . […] deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

      ……..be interpreted as meaning that illegal immigrants are entitled to the same “benefits” legal citizens are entitled to ?

      Doesn’t equal protection under the law refer to the idea that the courts, must treat people who break the law equally whether they be citizens or not ?… That they can’t impart harsher penalties for the same crime to different groups of people.

      Isn’t the illegal alien merely a “visitor” ?

      Let’s take the argument all the way… Since the citizen tax-payers are the ones who pay for their public education system, why should the illegal visitor have access to that service ? Calling it a “public” school doesn’t imply that it’s a FREE school… the public that uses it, does in fact PAY for it… Why should something that we work hard to pay for be given gratis to someone who isn’t even here legally ? What makes them entitled to such an UNEARNED benefit..

      Listen to the crap that’s spewed by these looters every day…

      Now they’re saying that the rich folks, who already, through their taxes, support huge numbers of poor people people in so many ways, now have to pay a new additional tax on the healthcare insurance they purchase for themselves… The top 1% of earners already pay over 40% of the gross tax revenues…. and now the looters are going after what they have left ?

      Every person of means, who works hard to support this corrupt regime, should go on strike…. stop being productive, and stop paying taxes… we’ll bring this gang of thieves down in a few months….

      It’s we who make this rip off possible, and there’s no way they can force us to keep playing their foul game.

      The simple truth is that the left (the democratic party) has a simple, one dimensional platform and strategy, and that’s to promise the “have nots” that they will take (steal, expropriate, confiscate) wealth from the “haves”.. the ones who PRODUCE MORE THAN THEY CONSUME, and GIVE it, in the form of unearned benefits to the “have nots” in exchange for their votes and political support.

      IS THIS ANYTHING OTHER THAN JUST AN ELABORATE HEIST ?

      We’re the one who supply the financial fodder on which their con game is dependent…

      Production comes BEFORE distribution.

      If WE stop producing, THEY wont have anything to distribute…

      WE ARE NOT THEIR SLAVES….

      WE CAN TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES…. THEY CANNOT….

      Rather than letting Obama create a crisis that gives him an excuse to seize total power, WE should be the ones who tear it all down simply by going on strike…

      And once the rest of the people see that they need us more than we need them, then we’ll be able to set our own terms.

    Quite an article and discussion. Wouldn’t all this be moot if the illegals were deported like the law already says ? Emergency room care should not be denied for life threatening injuries or contagious desease but don’t let them just leave. Send them all the way home. This may prevent illegals from seeking medical care but not if we enforce existing immigration laws and deport them before they get sick.

    Sanctuary cities can pony up for the cost and maybe even help them actually file taxes. It would be great to see proof of their 15+ dependents.

    1. Plyler v. Doe, 457 U.S. 202 (1982), was a case in which the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a state statute denying funding for education to children who were–themselves–illegal aliens. Neither it, nor Proposition 187, was directed at ‘the children of illegal aliens’, as many of those children are (as the relevant aspect of the 14th Amendment was unfortunately interpreted) American citizens by birth. Judge Napolitano did not make that determination, our Supreme Court did. It appeared to me that he merely reiterated their decision that every person WITHIN U.S. jurisdiction is entitled to the protection of our laws.

    While I, too, hope the current interpretation of that Amendment is eventually overturned, until that happens, we’re stuck with it.

    2. Until illegal alien adults are PROHIBITED from receiving ‘free’ routine health care for themselves and their children (whether here legally or not) they will have no reason to purchase health insurance. Not even subsidized health insurance.

      PRCS –

      While I agree with the distincton that you made between children who are themselves present in the U.S. illegally versus illegal aliens’ children who were born in this country and therefore U.S. citizens in their own right, that was not the relevnt consideration in Plyler v. Doe. The Supreme Court esentially said that the sins of the parents should not be visited on the children even if the children themselves were also here illegally:

      “Persuasive arguments support the view that a State may withhold its beneficence from those whose very presence within the United States is the product of their own unlawful conduct. These arguments do not apply with the same force to classifications imposing disabilities on the minor children of such illegal entrants. At the least, those who elect to enter our territory by stealth and in violation of our law should be prepared to bear the consequences, including, but not limited to, deportation. But the children of those illegal entrants are not comparably situated. Their “parents have the ability to conform their conduct to societal norms,” and presumably the ability to remove themselves from the State’s jurisdiction; but the children who are plaintiffs in these cases “can affect neither their parents’ conduct nor their own status.” Trimble v. Gordon, 430 U.S. 762, 770 (1977). Even if the State found it expedient to control the conduct of adults by acting against their children, legislation directing the onus of a parent’s misconduct against his children does not comport with fundamental conceptions of justice”.

    Where does it draw a distinction between citizens and non-citizens?

    “We, the people of the United States, in order……….” Our founding fathers were very smart people. They *knew* that We, the people, were citizens who had just fought a great war to free themselves from English rule. They felt that “We, the citizens,” would just be stupidly redundant.
    Also when they drafted the constitution, they gave the “Life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness,” instead of “life, liberty, and property,” because the southern states had slavery, and considered other people property. They knew that if they put that in there, they would virtually lock slavery in place forever.

    In order to read the constitution, you have to know the background, and why it was created, then you’ll know why it’s worded the way it is.

    So, in effect, if the government gives Illegal immigrants access to the public option of the Obamacare plan, then they’ll be violating the immigration laws.

    Now, however, if an illegal immigrant wants to buy insurance through blue cross/blue shield, humana, etc. then they can, because they’d be spending their own money on a product, and you can’t deny them products, because that would be like saying, “You can’t buy that Big Screen TV because you aren’t a citizen.” or “You can’t buy those groceries, because you aren’t a citizen.”

    To me, it doesn’t make a difference, because I’ll die before I go onto the government health dole, and if they think they can collect fines, go for it. I don’t have to pay those either, nor do I think they can lock up every citizen in the country that doesn’t want to trust their system.

      You wrote:

      “Also when they drafted the constitution, they gave the “Life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness,” instead of “life, liberty, and property,” because the southern states had slavery, and considered other people property. ”

      Whether they used pursuit of happiness rather than property because of the slaves or for another reason, doesn’t matter IMHO because they’re actually one and the same….

      The very concept of “freedom to the pursuit of happiness” is meaningless, if we aren’t allowed to keep the fruits of our labors, (our property)

      I’m sure you’ll agree with Adrian Rogers who said:

      “You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

        Swemson,

        I knew that “Life, Liberty, Pursuit….” was the same, I was seeing if anyone else did. Not too many people bother to read the constitution, or even read about the framers. It’s great that you have. 🙂

        I agree that unless we can keep our property, we don’t have freedom of pursuit of happiness. That’s why I get so ticked off when governments try to steal peoples property to make a quick buck.

        I wholeheartedly agree with Adrian Rogers said, and he’s exactly right. That’s my gripe with Income taxes. I work to make my money, and I deeply resent the government taking it away and giving it to people who don’t want to work. (Now, at the same time, I don’t mind paying the military, and don’t mind helping provide for people who can’t work due to physical disabilities.) Unfortunately, our government thinks it’s in the “Pay the people who don’t want to work, so we can keep a job,” job.

        Here’s a quote from ancient rome, “When the public can vote to receive money from the treasury, the republic is doomed.” Or words to that effect. And that’s our problem now. Those who live on the government dime are allowed to vote, which gives them the ability to vote themselves a pay raise every two to four years.
        In order for our republic to survive, maybe we have to disenfranchise anyone who receives welfare payments, that way they can’t vote themselves that pay raise. Maybe we also have to disenfranchise the illegal alien, who thinks he or she gets to vote, just because they successfully crossed the border without getting caught.

        Maybe I’m being too tough, maybe not.

          We’re on the same page.. I feel the same way you do about income taxes.. of course I’m probably a bit more radical than you…

          Since political elections have devolved into the perverted exercise in which the have nots decide how to spend other people’s money, I think it should work as follows:

          Everyone must pay a certain minimum income tax, perhaps as little as $100, in order to be eligible to vote, and then, they should get one additional vote for each additional hundred dollars in income taxes that they pay…

          Those who produce more than they consume have become SLAVES in this society…

    As long as illegal immigration is profitable, it will continue. I would like to see every illegal deported, a double fence built and backed up by our military, standing shoulder to shoulder. I am about as rabid as anyone can be about the sovereignty of our country, but until we elect people who have the courage to say “no mas!” and mean it, we will go on allowing criminals the free run of our nation. They aren’t “in the shadows.” That’s a ridiculous statement. They are everywhere: schools, hospitals, construction jobs, landscaping, living in and destroying our neighborhoods, driving drunk and killing innocent people, raping, robbing and commiting every crime in the book. it’s up to us.

      You do not know the half of it. If the deaths and robberies perptrated by illegal aliens was being shown on the evening news every night this problem would be over next election cycle. But the news organizations simply fail to report. As I have stated before 20 to 22 people die daily by the actions of illegal aliens. Either driving impaired or homocide. Crimes against children are on the rise like statutory rape and others and many attributable to illegal aliens. It is a cultural difference they simply do not see any problem with 30 year old men having sex with 13 year old girls. More people die here at the hands of illegals than Americans that died in Iraq when the war was at it’s worse. The numbers are probably even greater now but just do the math on twenty people a day, weekly monthly yearly and that number is growing. Because of democrats and some RINO Republicans you are just to except it. It is only fair after all we are so rich. Remove the kids of illegal aliens from our schools and the WICK programs and you have enough money to pay for the medication of our elderly If that is what you would wish to use it for. They also disproportionately effect the black comunity taking jobs from them but Lamont Hill does not give a damn because he has his 65k gig with Bill Oreally and teaching Rap.

    Never.

    The “equal protection” (of the people) clause is applied supreme to and as more recent than the U.S. Fed part of U.S. Constitution and thereby there are no illegal aliens (to a small normal % of illegals and never a obtrusive % that anyone would notice in society) and thereby no illegal aliens receive free education, emergency medical care, … (infinite list). I.e. “the people” have been provided equal protection from EXISTENCE OF ILLEGAL ALIENS.

    The “equal protection” clause is applied supreme to and as more recent than the U.S. Fed part of U.S. Constitution of a supreme court and the U.S. Fed has no U.S. Fed Supreme Court JURISDICTION OVER “equal protection” clause of the U.S. Constitution.

    Declare:
    1) that you use illegal aliens to take out employment sanctions against the USA (the people);
    2) why you use illegal aliens to take out employment sanctions against the USA;
    3) why you did not declare it and say “I’m damn proud of it”;
    4) said employment sanctions a violation of United Nation law? What evil is the USA being punished for per what ___ U.N. resolution?

    REFERENCE “SEMAPHORE #3 BY SOLUTION (below).”
    Suppose each country in the world (ALWAYS) did their ”or equal” of the following amendment 29, issue (WAS (ALWAYS) ALREADY) solved (this is U.S. Fed and U.N. due care foreseeable and preventable, and we are still waiting)?

    Why not (THE U.S. FED AND) THE STATES GET TOGETHER AND MAKE U.S. CONSTITUTION AMENDMENT 29 THAT:
    1. THE U.S. FED (in the interim before executing part “4.”) PAYS (covers) ALL COSTS RELATED to “illegal aliens” CAUSED BY U.S. Fed want of ordinary care (failure to deter and remove all “illegal aliens”).
    2. Removal of all said “illegal aliens”.
    3. Next is when conditions arise that it be necessary, the U.S. Fed has all lawful and unlawful aliens bond for “own recognizance” to enter the U.S. and for each release from custody back into free U.S. population. Note that particular aspects of bond for “own recognizance” already exist.
    4) said employment sanctions a violation of United Nation law? What evil is the USA being punished by employment sanctions for per what U.N. resolution ___?
    END AMENDMENT TEXT.
    Suppose we are not all stupid and this a hint of what to expect your legacy to include, “Fahrenheit Obama”?

    While I believe our northern border should be secured, it should not be done at the expense of our southern border. MAKE MEXICO PAY FOR THEIR 1/2 OF THE LENGTH OF THE WALL? Every year, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are apprehended trying to illegally enter our country from Mexico, but even more are able to slip through.

    More importantly, Plyer did not say that minors did not have a constitutional right to public education, but said that since the federal government was not enforcing its laws against illegal immigration, the state could not expel students from school if they were illegal. It depended on an observation that illegal alien minors were not being removed by the federal government, which at that time and now is not actually true.

    Does the term “We, the People” mean just the CITIZENS of the United States, or does it include millions of border jumpers? If you believe the latter, then you don’t believe in the concept of SELF DETERMINATION which is THE underlying principle of the Declaration of Independence! Those three words begin the US Constitution which was established to secure “the blessings of liberty” for “ourselves [sic] and our [sic] posterity.” Note it doesn’t say anything about extending sovereignty over the populations of Mexico, Guatamala, or dozens of other countries whose “people” have not only the right, but the RESPONSIBILITY, to provide for THEMSELVES. Millions of Americans aren’t south of the US/Mexican border demanding “rights” or benefits from Mexico. If they were, the Mexican authorities would give them the boot faster than you can say “Adios, Gringo!”

    “Julie T” wants to know “where in the Constitution does it say it applies only [sic] to citizens?” Well, Julie, here’s your answer: it applies to EVERYONE which is why our laws against BORDER JUMPING are enforceable! And, BTW, it gives Congress the power “to raise an army [sic; and by extension, a navy, air force, and a BORDER PATROL!] What “Constitutional” rights do illegal aliens have? Well, they have the right to DUE PROCESS..ie. a DEPORTATION HEARING! Do you recognize the “right” of ILLEGAL ALIENS – that is foreign nationals – to “bear arms?” If so, what “right” would Americans have to resist an invasion? And, yes, Julie, it DID happen…the BRITISH burned a good deal of Washington, DC including the “White House” in the War of 1812! The exterior had to be WHITEWASHED to cover the smoke damage…that’s why it was subsequently termed the “White House” instead of “the Executive Mansion!” But, I suppose Julie figures those Red Coats had the perfect “right” to “bear arms” including TORCHES because the “Constitution” must surely “apply” to everybody who’s on US soil, eh? Are you getting my drift yet, Julie?

      I believe you misunderstand Julie? I have read her enough to know she does not think they have all the constitutional rights of a citizen but the constitution does apply to them in certain cases. The mexican that murdered the woman in South Carolina is going to have the founding document applied to him in several ways when the state finishs with him and during that proceeding as well.

      “Are you getting my drift yet, Julie?”

      Yes, loud + clear. You assume you know what someone means and respond to your assumption rather than seek clarification which is what my question did. Since you are so good with words perhaps you’ve heard the phrase: “Better to remain quiet and appear a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt”

    Illegal aliens are not allowed to vote if they do they are breaking another law of the United States. Of course that does not seem to matter since they are here illegally because they have not respect for the laws of the U.S.
    They do not not have any rights to any social services. They are criminals in the United States.

    A note of interest each illegal who crosses the boarder pays the coyote say — $5,000 dollars. Since they are able to save that much money how can they declare themselves destitute? With $5,000 they could start some kind of family business, go to school in their home country.

    So what is their real reason for coming into the U.S. Is it so they can make more money in the U.S. send it home (money orders) so when they retire in their home country and live high on the hog. This is at the expense of we who live are citizens of the U.S. While here they get free schooling, medical, food stamps, reduced housing, pay no taxes.

    Slowly the U.S. is being reduced to a third world country. I wonder when will the rats jump ship. Where will they go when all the freebies are gone. Where will we go when our country is no more.

    Two steps forward, one step backwards? That is the situation illegal immigration been, since forced back into the spotlight Patriots and exceptionally American works can claim another small victory. The Senate had to finally give in to public pressure and pass a three year extension for E-Verify. A small but significant step in slowly, but surely removing illegal foreign workers out of the job market? But the insuring battle is far from over? Let us question the open border meddlers. Let’s just say for one minute–and this is a big IF, knowing the frustrated and angry mood of 15 million out-of-work Americans? If a comprehensive path to citizenship was to pass, how is our all-powerful government expected to halt the inflow of millions upon millions more illegal aliens at the border?

    Without any doubt there will be a tangible effect of word-of-mouth spreading like searing magma across the border, the Pacific, Atlantic and other oceans of the world. Will the fraternity of corrupted legislators bring home our troops from different nations of the world and place whole commands along the intentionally poorly constructed border? Or perhaps they will direct the National Guard once again, to picket that national demarcation line the between the two countries? My thoughts are that a torrent, will materialize into a flood, then a maelstrom of desperate human beings will start a perilous charge to take advantage of health care, education and whatever California and other-SANCTUARY STATES–have been declared to have for free. This border fence was–NOTHING–like that originally planned? Rep. Duncan Hunter R-CA was the author of the planned border fence, which originality can be seen in San Diego, California. It is not what we view currently stretching from California to Texas? Hunters construction was two layer with a no-mans-land in between the two strands for Border Patrol use. Speeding vehicles had the capability of barreling along to any illegal incursion, on a two lane track Instead of illegal entrants only having to scale one steel barrier, they would likely be caught in between the fences and unable to negotiate the second fence before being apprehended?

    Illegal access to America was never completed, because our Politicians corporate employers never intended to keep the majority of discount labor out the country. THINK ABOUT IT? IF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION LAWS WERE MEANT TO BE ENFORCED, THE COURTS WOULD HAVE MADE IT A SERIOUS FELONY. INSTEAD IT’S NOT EVEN A MINOR INFRACTION. You would think that the US Chamber of Commerce would be very potent, in fighting the government on behalf of the 15 million jobless workers. But they are already filing lawsuits to compromise E-Verify on behalf of Fed Contractor and subcontractors. In court they are stating that the government lacks the authority to make the voluntary program mandatory.

    The US Chamber of Commerce, The ACLU, and Council for Foreign Relations–REAL AGENDA–is to completely eradicate any border, port or airline enforcement–to expedite the easy access of impoverished cheap labor. Randel Johnson, chamber senior vice president for labor, immigration and employee benefits stated, “Our main focus right now is to try and provide that the regulation, that does not require the re-verification of current employees.” But then any prudent person must realize that not only is federal contractors and subcontractors have unknown numbers of illegal workers holding American jobs? But anywhere in the job market illegal immigrants are likely shielded by thousands of employers, given refuge by churches, hidden in unions halls We should concentrate on the numbers of illegal foreign labor who have been informed upon by the companies own labor force.

    In Los Angeles 1800 individuals were disclosed, working at a clothing factory on fraudulent documentation. In Postville, Iowa a lightening ICE raid detained 300 unauthorized workers. Today most of those jobs have been filled by legal black, white, brown or any other colored skin, but the usual suspects have complained that these are jobs, are jobs Americans won’t do? Take these numbers and calculate them by how many hundreds of thousands of businesses there are in the United States? If just those two large companies are anything to go by, the actual numbers of illegal labor working without–THE PEOPLE’S PERMISSION is absolutely staggering? My cousin’s grandfather picked fruit in Oregon, American kids mowed laws, flipped burgers, teens babysat small children, and unskilled cleaned toilets and made beds in motels and hotels? Now you’re lucky if you can find a US citizen, in the entertainment industry, janitorial jobs or hundreds of other low wage categories? All these jobs were slowly encompassed by illegal exploited labor, because they can be intimidated by employers who spin the word “El Migra.”? Always and forever, its about the profit and large copious bonuses, these executives are making using foreign nationals, instead of US workers.

    First, the majority of these outlaw companies probably do not pay HEALTH INSURANCE? As I have repeated–over and over again–they either jettisons there injured charges, such as roofers, construction or any manual labor on the steps of the county emergency hospital? These companies are very knowledgeable of Federal law, because they and industrial organizations have subjected our Civil Servants in Washington to unceasing lobbying. The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (42 U.S.C. § 1395dd, EMTALA) is a United States Act of Congress passed in 1986 as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. It requires hospitals and ambulance services to provide care to anyone needing emergency health care treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay. No language relates to reimbursement provisions in the act. As a result of the legislation, any patients needing emergency treatment can only be discharged under their own informed consent or when their condition requires transfer to a hospital better equipped to administer care.

    Nefarious companies are fully aware of this law that sick people who are low income can enter any emergency room and receive medical treatment and the companies are not held accountable for the hospital bills. They rid themselves of the responsibility onto the US taxpayer or the hospital to swallow the medical bill. Unlike citizens and legal resident not only are forced to pay for this in their taxes. If however they fall into the same quicksand of paying for medical bills for themselves and family they are literary hunted down by skip tracers and obnoxious debt collectors. Illegal foreign workers are almost exempt because they have no tracking ID papers, whereas the rest of the legal population are continually harassed by arrogant debt collectors. Many become victims of bankruptcy? Unlike industrialized nations who have for years benefited from Universal health care, this country has badly failed the American people and instead favored money grabbing private insurance. It does seem inconceivable thousands of Americans die each year, because they cannot afford the premiums for their families.

    Whereas illegal workers are receiving free treatments, expensive dialysis and major surgery compliments of US taxpayers. GOOGLE–illegal immigrants–hospitals–health care for raw intelligence? As a example in April, University Medical Center, Nevada has been spending about $2 million per month providing emergency dialysis services to 80 illegal immigrants. WE SHOULD VIVIDLY REMEMBER THIS IS THE HOME OF SENATOR HARRY REID, WHOSE POWERFUL INFLUENCE IN WASHINGTON, HAS INTENTIONALLY USED HIS POWER TO WEAKEN OR TRAMPLE ON ANY IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT. HE AND HIS DEMOCRATIC FORCE HAS BEEN INSTRUMENTAL EARLIER IN TRYING TO DERAIL E-VERIFY. One should consider he has a very large population of illegal foreign nationals settled in Nevada. He hopes to be re-elected next year? Legal residents and it’s citizens should watch for any kind of irregularities in the voting booth, specifically absentee ballots?

    California–a stark reality of complete flagrant disregard of federal law, has instituted its own policy of a SANCTUARY STATE. Over the years it’s amassed a uncounted population of impoverished, poorly educated illegal labor and their families. It has become a very costly situation for Angelenos and Californians as a whole. With a Liberal-Socialist-Marxist assembly in Sacramento, the tax and spend hierarchy have driven the State into near bankruptcy. Estimated in just the Los Angeles the numbers of illegal immigrants is 3 million people. According to U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS), an estimated 2,209,000 illegal immigrants
    resided in California in 2000, up from 1,476,000 in 1990. Since then the numbers have accelerated to unbelievable numbers, which is owing to our border remaining intentionally limited security.

    As usual the opponents of any kind of restriction on the illegal immigration, is playing the race card? It’s a forgone conclusion that the benefactors of promoting a mass invasion of our shores, such as religious groups, unions, ACLU, radical ethnic caucuses and even our own US Chamber of Commerce, will mouth epithets to any person group or other entity–IF–doesn’t benefit big business who advocate a continuous force of illegal cheap labor. Now they are really frustrated because their objection to E-Verify was thrown out of a Maryland Federal court. All federal contractors and subcontractors must adhere to the law as of September 30. They have conspired against the American worker and people for too long and now we are fighting back ourselves against corrupt politicians and other elected officials nationwide. Then we have well-known Arizona Sheriff Joe Ariapo, who has been demonized by the open border fanatics, Nancy Napolitano and the arrogant leadership of Democrats. Business alliances influenced, with the corruption from the lobbyists whose power is the god-almighty dollar. So 287 G fed training has been canceled for Ariapo and his deputies and we need to ask why? A friends daughter who is an attorney in California in Sacramento, says the California assembly is rife with corruption. New legislators go to this Capitol, with great expectation but within six months are under the putrid thumb of lobbyists or forced out of office by both sides of the aisle?

    Rep. Joe Wilson was actually telling the truth at the time, and now Democrats have placed restrictive language in the Health care reform package as a reluctant afterthought by public demand. This was nothing to do about bigotry or racism, but the American workers and family survival? Business community who hire illegals pay generally below the national minimum wage or other benefits, which forces there employees to rely on the taxpayer to carry the financial load. The US labor force should not have to be in competition, with people from other countries? Businesses have already offshore American jobs, because it’s cheaper? Every illegal foreign national and family member should be exempt from government run health care, jobs and all the billions of taxpayer dollars secretly allocated to pay for their support. Twenty million plus illegal people compromised themselves, when they entered a sovereign nation without permission. The invasion of illegal immigrants into the state of California has much to do with its monolithic budget meltdown.

    County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich in 2004 released new statistics from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services showing that Illegal Aliens collected more than $37 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in November 2008, up $3 million from September 2007. Illegal’s collected more than $20 million in welfare assistance in November and more than $16 million in food stamp allocations, for a projected annual cost of $444 million.

    That is not the entire picture of the taxpayer burden. When you add in the cost of free Emergency Room services, free Public School education as well as public safety and free housing the annual cost is $3,000,000,000 a year and rising! In California they get a free lunch on the taxpayers in Los Angeles county compliments of Sacramento. That from 2007 welfare had increased $2 million over the previous two months. He also said that 25% of all welfare and food stamp benefits go directly to children of illegal aliens and that the projected annual cost in welfare and food stamps for illegal aliens would be $444 million. That is far from the entire picture of the taxpayer burden. That’s only the cost to taxpayers in Los Angeles County, how much is it costing the rest of the United States taxpayers? Is the cost $20 Billion, $30 Billion or $50 Billion annually? No one really knows, because most States refuse to ask the important question; “Are you a Legal Immigrant?”

    My concern and thousands of other citizens and legal residents is how many—ILLEGAL ALIENS—are voting in elections, when no governmental ID is not needed to prove immigration status. Simply recognize that California is a—SANCTUARY STATE—and by removing millions of illegal immigrants and their families would assist on balancing the budget. E-Verification being continuously modified from its original success rate of 99.6 is now constantly on the minds of company executives. Now with a three year extension those Democrats had no choice, but to irritably approve because of public outrage. FIRST IT PROVES THAT BEYOND ANY SHADOW OF DOUBT PUBLIC EXPOSURE AND ANGRY CONTACT WITH THEIR POLITICIANS HAVE EXEMPLARY EFFECTS ON HOW THEY VOTE? THE THREE YEAR EXTENSION WAS A SMALL VICTORY CELEBRATION. BUT BE ASSURED WE HAVE TO KEEP A JAUNDICED EYE ON EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM. WE CANNOT LET GO FOR ONE MINUTE?
    Since 2005 there have been announcements of the closure of the emergency rooms, this includes Elastar Community Hospital in East Los Angeles. Tracey Veal, a spokeswoman for the Northridge hospital, said, It is estimated that the hospital spent $13 million on so-called charity care in the fiscal year that ended on June 30. Four other emergency rooms have closed in the county in the last two years. The reason given is the high cost of treating uninsured people. The article also states that 70 hospital emergency rooms and trauma centers have closed in California since 1990.The county estimates the cost of providing them with health care is $340 million annually.

    There are approximately 127 Sanctuary Cities in this country; this figure keeps rising every year. In in Pennsylvania.taxpayers footed a $25.3 million bill in 2007-08 to pay for emergency health care for non-citizens. Tax-funded subsidies of $2 million went to seven area hospitals. Florida Hospitals have to write off $100 million dollars in unpaid medical bills because of illegal aliens. The Florida Hospital Association says taxpayers pick up the tab. Austin — The state of Texas and local hospital districts spent an estimated $677 million to provide health care to illegal immigrants in a year, a new study says. In a recent year in Colorado, the state’s emergency Medicaid program paid an estimated $30 million in hospital and physician delivery costs for about 6,000 illegal immigrant mothers – average of $5,000 per baby. Those 6,000 births to illegal aliens represent 40% of the births paid for by Medicaid in Colorado. Those 6,000 babies immediately became U.S. citizens and qualified for full Medicaid services.

    WASHINGTON — The IRS allowed foreign workers — many of them in the U.S. illegally — to improperly claim nearly $7 billion in child tax credits from 2004 to 2007, a government investigator said Thursday.

    It’s estimated there may be over 300,000 anchor babies born each year in the U.S. Thus, illegal alien mothers now add more to U.S. population each year than immigration from all sources in an average year before 1965. These babies are called anchor babies because they act as an anchor that pulls the illegal alien mother and a host of other relatives into permanent U.S. residency. The instant citizenship of the baby, makes the mother favorable for low income housing and other less known government benefits?

    FAIR estimates “there are currently between 287,000 and 363,000 children born to illegal aliens each year. This figure is based on the crude birth rate of the total foreign-born population (33 births per 1000) and the size of the illegal alien population (between 8.7 and 11 million). In 1994, California paid for 74,987 deliveries to illegal alien mothers, at a total cost of $215.2 million (an average of $2,842 per delivery). Illegal alien mothers accounted for 36 percent of all Medi-Cal funded births in California that year.”

    FAIR research shows that “the Urban Institute estimates that the cost of educating illegal alien children in the nation’s seven states with the highest concentration of illegal aliens was $3.1 billion in 1993 (which, with the growth of their population to 1.3 million, would be more like $5 billion in 2000). This estimate does not take into account the additional costs of bilingual education or other special educational needs.”

    So vote—NO–on all propositions as you are supporting parasite businesses that hire illegal cheap labor. The Liberal Assembly in Sacramento has allowed foreign labor to settle here and now the Piper must be paid. US Taxpayers are unknowingly paying billions of dollars in State benefits to underwrite education, health care, housing, Public Safety and other benefits and now has the highest taxes in the nation? If we don’t draw the line now–the politicians will keep drawing more and more blood from us, in the form of raised taxes.

    A national plan for dealing with insolvent states is to let the rogue businesses of that state that got the benefits of all the profligate spending bear the burden? It is unconscionable to spread the burden of asinine policy on those who neither supported it, nor received the benefits of it. IT’S ALL ABOUT CORPORATE WELFARE AND ACCESS TO THE POLITICIANS WHO SUPPOSEDLY PROTECT THE TAXPAYER.

    Today the mechanism, which checks employee information from I-9 forms against Social Security and homeland security databases, is used voluntarily by more than 148,000 employers and growing. Whether this because the fear of criminal penalties or just being a good loyal American, I don’t know? Then groups such as the Society for Human Resource Management, US Chamber of Commerce and immigrant rights organizations have criticized the system for being inefficient, ineffective and unable to detect identity theft. They say that mistakes in government records could cause hundreds of thousands of legal workers are being declared ineligible. BUT INDIVIDUAL CAN EASILY RESOLVE THAT PROBLEM? THEY CAN ARRIVE WITH THEIR ID, TO THE LOCAL SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE? THOSE WORKERS NOT ELIGIBLE TO WORK IN AMERICA, WILL NOT ENTER THIS GOVERNMENT BUILDING BECAUSE OF CONSEQUENCES? IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT?

    It would foolish to think that the major majority of the US populace are going to sit back and remain silent, if the automatons of the business–OUR LAWMAKERS–try to force AMNESTY through.

    HERE IS A LIST OF THINGS RESIDENTS AND CITIZENS CAN DO, TO KEEP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION BURNING IN THE MINDS OF AMERICANS. WE CAN ALL DO SOMETHING, SPECIALLY BECAUSE DISCUSSIONS ARE ALREADY UNDERWAY TO POUNCE ON US ANOTHER AMNESTY.
    The most important is to keep “illegal immigration” on the front burner. Like me! VERY INTERESTING DIALOG FOUND ON THE NET?
    “Letters to the Editor” about illegal immigration and how it affects the taxpayer and those who are in our nation illegally. When you read a “Letter to the Editor” or read a newspaper article about “illegal immigration”, respond to the newspaper article or the letter writer with facts are easily obtainable on the net. Become a Whistle-Blower are scrutinize work sites, day laborer pick up points, vans/trucks transporting workers and Record dates, times and places and other relevant information. Pass this information along to law enforcement and (ICE) Immigration and Customs service. REMEMBER! NEXT TIME IT MIGHT BE YOUR JOB ON THE LINE?

    Keep pressure on city, county, and state legislators. Write letters, send emails, visit their offices, phone them and constantly harass their assistants. Attendance to public hearings that is sponsored by elected officials is a must. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind
    contact talk show radio hosts, invite elected officials to come to the meeting to speak

    Follow these instructions by TARGETOC

    When reading about organization or groups with a tax exempt status investigate more? Explore those bringing a lawsuit against a city or county municipality, who has passed an ordinance against illegal immigration? Check to see if their tax exemption prohibits legislative activities. If so, you can contact the IRS and request that their

    Tax exempt status be removed (this hurts the group in the pocketbook). IRS will keep your identity confidential if you so choose. Be prepared to send IRS documentation such as newspaper clippings of the organization’s or group, even faith groups and political activity other than the actual lawsuit. To verify the organizations/groups that are bringing about the lawsuits, go to their website: or you can contact the organization and inquire whether they are tax exempt?

    Hold small group meetings on “Stopping Illegal Immigration”. Make up flyers, contact newspapers and send out newsletters. Contact talk show radio hosts, invite elected officials to come to the meeting to speak and request that they

    Forward information about their officials meetings and email constituents who are interested in stopping illegal immigration. Then contact radios stations and ask them to broadcast the meeting place, dates, times, etc. Invite speakers such as law enforcement, ICE, elected officials, contractors who have been affected by illegal immigration, workers who were fired and whose employer hired illegal immigrants to replace such employee, people who live adjacent to illegal immigrant housing, health care workers who can tell you the diseases that illegal’s are carrying, school officials that can give you costs of educating illegal immigrant children and cost to print instructional materials, cost of hiring bi-lingual teachers/interpreters, etc.

    Encourage local law enforcement to adopt the federal program, 287 (g). The 287 (g) programs gives law enforcement a data base in which to check for legal status of workers. This data base not only goes to ICE but it integrates into other federal data bases. Local sheriffs’ deputies can be trained by ICE to function as ICE agents in many ways on the local level.

    Make sure that cities, counties, and states use the E-Verify (formerly Basic Pilot) verification system in awarding government contracts.

    Call your U. S. Senators and Congressmen and demand the rapid completion of a fence along our southern border and urge legislation that will punish employment of illegals. All 535 congressmen and senators can be reached by calling the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 or attend all meetings related to “stopping illegal immigration” and invite others to attend. When arrests are made of people of questionable legal status, contact law enforcement to make sure the suspect has been checked for legal status through ICE.

    Attend meetings, such as city council and county council, speaking on the issue during public comment opportunities. Form networks of mailing addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. to coordinate efforts. Stay focused, be patient, and try to remain positive.

    Verify that those who work for you such as landscapers, housekeepers, painters, etc. are here legally before you engage them to do the work for you.

    Do not support businesses which hire illegal immigrants, such as restaurants. Be sure to ask the business if they hire illegal’s. Tell the owner/manager that you will not do business with anyone who hires illegal immigrants.

    CHECK FOR THE E-VERIFY NOTICE AS IN THE RESTAURANT “EL POLLO LOCO”

    Participate in talk radio programs when the subject is on illegal immigration.

    Encourage city and county elected officials to pass ordinances on illegal immigration. Support elected officials who are passing legislation/ordinances on illegal immigration. 22. Do all that you can do to support legislation for funding additional ICE agents by contacting your federal legislators?

    American workers are under incessant attack by the open border insaneness. If the US worker who wants to save his job from overseas cheap labor, they must get involved with organizations that wish to reduce legal and illegal immigration. 1.5 newcomers enter America legally through the immigration green card lottery and at least 27 specialized visa applications. In many cases, these cheap rate labors from India displace computer programmers. Not only do they enter the job market this way, but US workers have to train them before they are given a pink slip? This is a very devious situation that is beneficial to employers, but utterly devious to those who end up jobless. One organization which has a reputable background is NUMBERSUSA.

    Numbersusa has great resources in the chambers of Washington and state assemblies were information is quickly expedited to them. Investigate their website for their inner knowledge expands on the commencing discussions on giving the 20 to 30 million plus illegal squatters a path to citizenship. Read about E-Verify being extended to 3 years, instead of being once again being tabled by anti-sovereignty Senator Harry Reid?

    That the Salvation army has disassociated itself from congregational religions and faith groups and does not endorse the National Association of Evangelicals’ recent lobbying for amnesty and for an increase in foreign labor importation. That Zogby International poll reveals that 56 percent of Mexicans believe that someone they know would try entering the United States illegally if the country was to offer legal status to illegal aliens. This just a few of the nasty arrangements our so-called politicians have in store for us. Another non-profit group is JUDICIAL WATCH with there main attention on political corruption in all levels of government.

    Judicial Watch is a watchdog over our government, legal, and judicial systems, the site posts a summary of the court cases they are pursuing along with related news stories. Currently on there site is the ACORN controversy. JW Statement on Arizona Attorney General Refusal to Take Action against Phoenix Police Chief for Receiving Illegal Pension Benefits and so much it nearly asphyxiates the mind? Learn about the supposedly non-existent North American Union. Information about the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) Do you really think that JW, is going to ruin its spotless reputation over NAU as a will-of –the-Wisp? Relating to the illegal immigration, JW Sues DHS for Documents on “Reforms” to 287(g) what is the Obama administration’s response to the success of this program? How Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano decided to implement “reforms” to weaken it as part of her comprehensive “review” of all border security policies. Judicial Watch, of course, wants to know everything about how and why this incomprehensible decision was made?
    In conclusion, be very aware of a—BLANKET AMNESTY—if enacted. Not only will millions more get past the border fence, but the costs cannot even be calculated with family unification-known as chain migration. A massive Armada of the old, young, mentally sick could be sponsored. The legalized sponsor in the majority of actions, never fulfill his financial commitment to his charges and they end up as a taxpayer’s expense. The CAPSWEB site is all about our rush towards OVERPOPULATION. The US Census Bureau have not denied that Americas population could climb now in its projections by a 50-percent increase in the domestic population by the year 2050, from 255 million to 383 million. The next 100 million will suffocate our ability, to maintain water, energy, food, communication, infrastructure and a balanced environment? It will lift out of reach any chance for a stable and sustainable population within the USA. It will also create horrific water shortages and exacerbate the energy and climate destabilization crises. My suggestion is GOOGLE keywords—not separated by comma’s, such as illegal immigration—costs—California and learn the frightening truth for yourself. Not the lies, propaganda that seems to permeate from the desks of Liberal editors?
