Immigration and Health Care: Legislation on the Table WILL Extend Health Care to Illegal Aliens

By James Edwards, Updated Wednesday, September 9, 2009, 9:47 PM EDT

Just about the time the Center for Immigration Studies was holding a press briefing at the National Press Club about the immigration and health reform connection, proponents from President Obama on down were denying that illegal aliens would receive taxpayer-funded health care under pending legislation.

Return of the Pharisees

By James Edwards, Tuesday, February 28, 2012, 8:20 PM EDT

Self-proclaimed religious experts on immigration policy browbeat the good, law-abiding, Christian citizens of Alabama again.

The Senate health reform bill is better than the House-passed bill, in terms of verification of immigrant or citizenship status. But the Senate bill contains a number of serious loopholes by which illegal aliens can and will obtain taxpayer-funded health coverage. This will provide a net bonus to at least a portion of illegal aliens and may well serve as yet another incentive to break U.S. immigration laws.
