Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders Unity Platform-Helps Illegal Aliens

| July 11, 2020

Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders came together with a unity platform. This platform includes provisions for free healthcare for illegal aliens. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would be restarted. Illegal aliens would be able to enroll for subsidized healthcare plans.

From Breitbart:

“To ensure that people living and working across the country have health care access, the Task Force recommends extending Affordable Care Act coverage to DACA recipients, allowing undocumented immigrants to purchase unsubsidized coverage in the ACA marketplaces, and working with Congress to lift the five-year waiting period for low-income lawfully present immigrants for Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program eligibility,” the platform states.

Providing health care to illegal aliens has become a widely supported plan among elected Democrats, while the overwhelming majority of Americans oppose it. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey from 2019 found that the plan is the “least popular” initiative by Democrats.

As Breitbart News has reported, forcing American taxpayers to provide free health care to all illegal aliens would cost citizens anywhere between $23 billion to $66 billion every single year — a potentially up to $660 billion bill for taxpayers every decade.

Already, American taxpayers are forced to annually subsidize about $18.5 billion in medical costs for illegal aliens, according to estimates by Chris Conover, formerly of the Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research at Duke University.

The free health care for DACA illegal aliens provision is just one of many major changes to the nation’s immigration system. Others include providing asylum to the world’s migrants, amnesty for all illegal aliens, increasing refugee resettlement, restarting welfare-dependent legal immigration, and ending highly-effective travel bans from countries considered national security risks.

    Dumb-o-crat logic:
    Biden defeats Sanders time, and time again in primaries after getting off to slow start by saying he’s the Moderate…he’s more to the center than that Commie Bernie the 1%er. After being “named the presumptive candidate” he adopts the policies of his vanquished opponent. He adopts the policies of the guy that the majority of his own party didn’t vote for…think about that. Less than 50% of Democrats voted for Mr. 1%, but this is the policy that want to sell to Independents & Republican…good strategy. I hope they stick with it.
    Update: cracks in policy as well know Globalist and the best friend China has in DC Joe Bi…errr…well…you know the rest tells people to ‘Buy American’ 2 weeks after DJT said it. The D’s already know their policies are a loser.

      They need Bernie’s RedAbteilung fanbois.

      They need the votes.

      They need the stormtrooper-wannabees to disrupt, distract, and ultimately to drive Trump voters away from polls.

      Just wait for November. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

    All about buying those future votes.

  3. 5th/77th FA says:

    After awhile, you will run out of other people’s money to give away. What then?

    Is this an early video of Joe Biden?

    • rgr769 says:

      Quid Pro Joe really let himself go in the years and months before he decided to run for prezzy this time around. Thanks for the video link.

  5. SFC D says:

    It might seem overly simple, but if we quit subsidizing illegal aliens, maybe we’d reduce the incentive to enter illegally, and illegal entry would be reduced…

    No, that would never work.

  6. NHSparky says:

    If the Trump commercial I saw in PA yesterday is any indication, it’s gonna be a LONG campaign for Biden.

  7. rgr769 says:

    I like your graphic, Besig. And for the benefit of those who do not peruse the U.S. Code Annotated (USCA), “illegal alien” is what they are called in the express language of the statutes passed by Congress and signed into law by prior Presidents. Under federal law we have two kinds of foreign nationals living here on an unlimited basis, registered resident aliens (those holding “green cards”) and “illegal aliens.” Nowhere in federal law are they called “undocumented” anything.

    Time for a tax on remittances to overseas countries?

    “Instability in Mexico and Latin America drove a wave of migrant workers to send a record amount of remittances to their home countries in 2019. Mexico’s Central Bank reported that Mexican migrants working overseas sent home a record-high $36 billion in remittances in 2019, a 7 percent increase from 2018.”

    • UpNorth says:

      Beyond time for a 25% tax on those remittances, at a minimum.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      In many cases, legal residents help their family back home. Those help-recipient folks get to stay put.

      I believe such a Tax is counterproductive. Tax that money, and you will:

      Take money away from some folks who live in abject poverty, a kind of poverty that doesn’t exist here. The negative PR is huge. The moral side is ugly.

      Give more people elsewhere a -huge- incentive to come here. Also give folks here, legally or illegally, a huge incentive to migrate more folks here.

      Drive the folks here to underground money movers, who will move the money for slightly less, but use it to fund more crime (drugs, terror, coyotes)

      One has to remember that most folks come here for economic and freedom reasons. Making their shithole or situation worse will inspire more to move here. How do we target the assholes responsible for the shitty situations there? Also, we can look at smacking the assholes -here- that utilize and exploit illegals.

  9. MI Ranger says:

    I think it all comes down to a war of words! If the progressives can get us to agree that they are not illegal, and are only “undocumented”, than all those dead people and ones that don’t exist are just undocumented voters…and since they don’t want us to require documents to vote…it doesn’t matter who voted for them!

  10. timactual says:

    An “illegal” alien is someone from a foreign country who broke a law to get here.

    An “undocumented” alien is a foreigner who came here legally who lost his wallet.

  11. Inbred Redneck says:

    I’m tryin’ to follow the logic here. If’n I have illegal sex with a woman it’s rape but not if it’s just undocumented?
