All 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates Support Government-funded Healthcare for Illegal Aliens

by | Jun 28, 2019 | News

Across the entire Democratic field Thursday (27June2018) at the Democratic Party Primary Debate in Miami, every candidate raised their hand in support of taxpayer-funded health care for all illegal aliens.

Who do they say will pay for this?  Taxpaying citizens and Greencard holders of the U.S.
“All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited health care. How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!”
— Tweeted President Trump in response.
According to the latest study from Pewhispanic.org, the average of median household income of unauthorized immigrants was $36,000.
Based on the Low Deductable plan provided an employer, the $2,662.00 paid in taxes on this undocumented household income would barely cover the typical $2,000 deductible and $2,500 out-of-pocket maximum under ACA’s “Low Deductible Plan” – never mind the $1,325 monthly premium.
As researched and reported by Brietbart news:

Center for Immigration Studies Director of Research Steven Camarotta told Breitbart News that only rough estimates are available for what health care for illegal aliens will cost American taxpayers, and though a comprehensive study has yet to be conducted on this specific issue, taxpayers can expect to pay a “significant” amount.

 

“If we offered Medicaid for illegal immigrants, it is possible the costs could be over tens of billions of dollars,” Camarotta said. “However, it would depend on eligibility criteria as well as how many illegal immigrants actually sign up for program once it was offered. So while the actual costs are uncertain, the size would be significant for taxpayers.”

 

Based on this estimate, should the full 22 million illegal aliens be living in the U.S. that Yale University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have estimated there to be, providing health care for the total illegal population could cost American taxpayers about $66 billion a year.

 

Over a decade, based on the Yale estimate of the illegal population and assuming all sign up for free health care, this would cost American taxpayers about $660 billion.

“We do ourselves no favors by having 11 million undocumented people in our country be unable to access health care.” stated Pete Buttigieg, Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, at the debate in Miami.
