Medicaid for Illegal Immigrants Reportedly Costing Americans $18.5 Billion Annually

Medicaid for Illegal Immigrants Reportedly Costing Americans $18.5 Billion Annually

"Taxpayer-funded Medicaid benefits being granted to illegal immigrants despite requirements disqualifying them from receiving such benefits cost taxpayers an estimated $18.5 billion a year, according to recent studies.

According to a report published by Forbes, health care for 3.9 million illegal immigrants costs American taxpayers $18.5 billion annually. Of that total, $11.2 billion in federal taxes went to subsidizing care for illegal immigrants in 2016.

The Center for Immigration Studies found that the percentage of new immigrants on Medicaid grew from 6 percent in 2007 to 17 percent in 2017 — an increase of 11 percentage points. The percentage of Americans on Medicaid also increased during the same time period, by 9 percent.

“The average immigrant household consumes 33 percent more cash welfare, 57 percent more food assistance, and 44 percent more Medicaid dollars than the average native household,” Jason Richwine, independent public policy analyst for the CIS, said. “Housing costs are about the same for both groups.”

Just think of what good that money could do instead! It could help out our wounded vets, could begin to start patching up our crumbling infrastructure, could raise the living standards for those who truly deserve help...so many places it could be used better.

I wonder if that's just the core funds, the money disbursed? If not, then the money spent administrating it should be factored in...at least another 10-25%.

While we probably wouldn't see much savings the first year or two, we need to start jettisoning these freeloaders; using that money to find and deport them. The savings won't come until a yr. or two, but that would help.
Thanks Mike. Hunt down ones whose request for amnesty has been court-denied and deport immediately, along with known illegal alien criminals. Rescind obama's blanket amnesty by EO and deport. Let them apply legally so we know who is coming in.

We've rebuilt countries around the world. Time to take care of our own citizens and rebuild our own world.
Well dfone konane & mike-

Additionally unvetted caravans threaten public health

[email protected]@K at hyper ventilating fake newser headlines!

It's not racist nor xenophobic or hateful to examine the potential social impact of unvettered mass immigration of illegal border crashing on our national public health !



Thanks Eddessa. They hyperventilate when they see anything not in their book of narratives.

If properly vetted under a working immigration system all entering can be health checked before being turned loose amongst the general US population. I wonder if allowing unchecked illegals in is part of Agenda 21 population reduction, or simply to create chaos and break the system ... or both?
