Donald Trump promised to do everything he could to stop illegal immigration when he was a candidate for president in 2015 and 2016. According to CNN, his policies are working.
That has to be a tough pill for the radically far-left network to swallow. But the thing is, CNN is now mad with Mexico for working with the Trump administration.
In other words, CNN wants more illegals in the country in order to steal more votes.
CNN is upset because President Donald Trump’s border control policies are working so well thanks in large part to the cooperation of the Mexican government. And it is that cooperation with Mexico that also irks Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from whom it is obvious CNN got many of their talking points.
Oddly enough, however, CNN while being upset with Mexico, also concedes that Trump’s border policies are working well. You can see that suprising concession in the very title of their Sunday story by Catherine Shoichet and Natalie Gallón (with talking points lifted from Jorge Ramos), “Why some say Mexico already built Trump’s wall — and paid for it.”
If a Democrat defeats Donald Trump in 2020 and gives health care to illegal aliens, it will cost the taxpayer a pretty penny.
Many of the Democratic candidates for president have endorsed providing health insurance to illegal immigrants. This analysis estimates the cost of providing illegal immigrants access to the existing system of government health benefits for low-income people. (We do not model the costs of scrapping the current system and giving all U.S. residents free government health insurance, as some candidates have proposed.) We estimate that there are 4.9 million uninsured illegal immigrants with incomes low enough to qualify for Medicaid or Advanced Premium Tax Credits (APTC), which are the subsidies provided by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Assuming a realistic enrollment rate, the cost of providing ACA subsidies to illegal immigrants would be about $10 billion per year, with costs rising to as much as $23 billion per year if all eligible illegal immigrants enrolled. Costs would be similar under a hybrid approach that provides Medicaid for the lowest-income illegal immigrants and ACA subsidies for those with higher incomes.
-Consistent with other research, we estimate that there are 4.9 million uninsured illegal immigrants with incomes low enough (less than 400 percent of the poverty threshold) to qualify for subsidies under the ACA.
-Given their age and income, the average cost of providing an ACA subsidy for an illegal immigrant would be about $4,600 each year.
-The total cost of providing ACA subsidies to illegal immigrants could be $22.6 billion annually if they all enrolled. The total cost assuming a more realistic enrollment rate is $10.4 billion per year.
