An article on the Associated Press website influenced me to post this poll Sunday.  According to the AP, doctors and public health experts warn of poor health and rising costs they say will come from sweeping Trump administration changes that would deny green cards to many immigrants who use Medicaid, as well as food stamps and other forms of public assistance. Some advocates say they’re already seeing the fallout even before the complex 837-page rule takes effect in October.

The AP writes: “President Donald Trump’s administration trumpeted its aggressive approach this past week as a way to keep only self-sufficient immigrants in the country, but health experts argue it could force potentially millions of low-income migrants to choose between needed services and their bid to stay legally in the U.S.”

Lisa David, president and CEO of Public Health Solutions, New York’s largest public health organization told the AP, “People are going to be sicker. They’re not going to go get health care, or not until they have to go to an emergency room. It’s going to cost the system a lot of money.”

Immigrants who want permanent legal status, commonly called a green card, have long been required to prove they won’t be “a public charge.” The Trump administration announced Monday that would redefine the term to mean those who are “more likely than not” to receive public benefits over a certain period. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will also now consider other factors, including income, education and English proficiency.

I support Trump’s move here.  And in my new film They Come to America 4, due out at the end of August, I touch upon the insanely high costs of the mass immigration taking hold of our country.  It is my opinion that if immigrants cannot come to America and be self sufficient then they shouldn’t be here, and taxpayers don’t want to be on the hook for paying medical bills of immigrants, legal or illegal.  Pre-order the film now at DennisMichaelLynch.com/illegal

Do you agree with me?  Or do you not mind paying for the medical bills of immigrants?

    The American family is now starving, going without medical, and going homeless, and for what, INVADERS? Today’s immigrants aren’t like they use to be. In my younger days Immigrants came to work and make their own way to success and found it offensive to take handouts. Today’s immigrants not only expect Americans to pay for their medical, housing, food, travel and education, they DEMAND IT while they wave their flags from the very hellholes they supposedly are fleeing from. Why should I have to support someone else when all my hard earned money goes to pay for ridiculous bills from incompetent lawmakers in congress that rob Peter to pay Paul while taxing my family to death and our national debt continues to rise? Americans can’t support everyone from other countries when they themselves are taxed out of their paycheck to support INVADERS, INVADERS that are trying to destroy America.
    I blame government and especially democrats for all the kios and destruction of the American way of life. (Single family households, Abortion, and a double set of rules for law abiding citizens and the lawless to name a few of many.) Excuse me while I go throw up, as my bloodsugars plummet from lack of insulin because Congress refuses to do their job for the American people.

      So my family who get nothing in benefits are destroying America? Nobody comes in this country to make worse. They come here for a better life. Calling them invaders is sickening. What are they invading, your neighborhoods? Calling minorities Invaders is a racial term used by The KKK.

        What makes you think that because you overstayed your Visas, you have a right to stay here to make better lives for yourselves? Go back to your own country and make a better life for yourselves or apply for entrance, pay the fees, learn the Constitution and wait in line like the rest of the people who want to come to the USA for a better life. Just because you jumped the line, we’re supposed to just overlook that? What about the people who have been waiting for years to BECOME USA CITIZENS? You don’t want to become a citizen, you just want to be free to do as you please and overstaying a VISA is proof positive that you won’t adhere to the rules of citizenship or the privilege of becoming an American.

            You make the foolish assumption that the immigrants haven’t already tried to make life better for themselves and their family in their home country. If a person is desperate enough to jump trains and swim across rivers then they have good reasons to do so. Many of them come to make money (less than minimum wage but that’s another discussion) to send back home. People all over south and Central America are suffering due to unstable government, rampant crime and overall poverty. No one is stealing white people’s jobs, illegal immigrants are paid less because they won’t report it. I understand that many people in America are suffering in poverty and it’s hard to watch immigrants get jobs over citizens but that being said, I’d not an excuse to abuse immigrants and immigrant children on the border. It’s important to be respectful and think things through before assuming you have the whole picture. Everyone is suffering in different ways but I believe that everyone deserves respect and a chance. They learn English but it is difficult, most immigrants know the American constitution better than the average citizen. Keep in mind that no one has the full picture of the immigration system or struggle.

          Do you even know how long it takes to become a permanent resident? 20 years dude. If they wanted to make a better like at home, they would have to run for an office that was overseas. Do you even understand the legislature process. Either way they came here to be with family. What does deportation do thet will help AMERICA? You lose low skilled workers and the tax revenue also. You dont think about the negatives.

        Kevin,
        SO you are saying they entered legally on a Visa and that Visa expired and they “overstayed” that Visa?
        Then they are here Illegally. Period.

          Fair enough but you are deporting a family who has assimilated into society. If you think deporting them because they are illegal is right thing, then why dont they mention the taxes millions of them pay in. Plus its a misdemeanor anyways so its not a felony.

    Why should Latin America be exempt from existing VISA and green cards established laws? The same rules should apply to all people from the nations. As it is Canadians must wait their turn and prove their employment worth before granting employment and citizenship. If Latin America is exempt then THIS must be considered racism. Pondering…..

    I’m FED UP with paying for medical care and anything else for illegal aliens!!! we should NOT be spending ONE dime to take care of them.. they have NO right to be here ..PERIOD!!! if they can’t take care of themselves, go back where they came from.. They come here to take what they can from our country … they have NO respect for our laws or our country… anymore.. it’s ALL about the free stuff they can get from us… Our politicians have ABSOLUTELY destroyed the value and meaning of being a citizen of our country when they continually hand ILLEGAL ALIENS more and more of OUR rights… YOU HAVE TO BE SOME KIND OF STUPID TO BE OKAY WITH PAYING FOR THEIR MEDICAL CARE WHILE THEY SEND THEIR MONEY BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY!!!!

      You are right, I feel the same but the bigger Problem is that the ones that have recruited the people in the Central American countries are our own people. Mostly Lawyers and the people against borders. There are a few of those around. And they want to ruin the USA.
      And that Maria Kalata is one fine example of someone that should not be here, period. She needs to learn our language before commenting on anything.

    The problem is the slave driver who employs the illegals. The illegals say: ” the Americans don’t want the jobs we do”. That’s BS it’s the no benefits & sweat shops we don’t want. If illegals wouldn’t take our jobs, we the citizens would have jobs in Missisippi, the poorest state in USA.

    The University hospital in Tucson got reimbursed for the expense of providing medical care for illegals that were picked up in the desert and the ones pregnant. One guess what they did with the money, help pay for health care for citizens? No, they built an entire wing for the kids of the illegals, and sure they help all kids, but the primary reason was the illegals.
    The people still pay through the nose for health care, but the illegals get it for free. There is no justification for that! I get health care from my employer, the cost went up this year and UMR pays less, a lot less. I seriously get a 16 cent discount and have to pay the rest.

    Everyone is full of shit both Dems and Reps, fyi we don’t pay for illigals medical care because they don’t have a right to any. There are citizens in debt because of their medical bills because if high corporate insurance cost a solution is needed for this. Stop falling for the separatist propaganda from both sides devidwd and conquer they keep us blind and separated, much easier to control.
