Confronted with Obama’s words – no free healthcare for illegal immigrants – DNC’s Perez says something stunning

Speaking with Fox News host Chris Wallace about what happened last week at the second Democrat presidential debate, where every candidate on stage expressed support for providing healthcare to illegal aliens, DNC chair Tom Perez admitted that he feels the same.

“It’s an insurance program, so you have to pay for it,” he initially said defensively when confronted by Wallace about the prospect of healthcare for illegals. “And as you know, immigrants, including undocumented immigrants, pay billions of dollars in taxes.”

First, immigrants and illegal aliens are not the same things. Second, while a 2017 report from the left-leaning Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy did admittedly find that illegal aliens likely paid about $11.7 billion in state and local taxes in 2014 alone, these taxes pale in comparison to the amount already being spent annually on healthcare for illegals.

“All told, Americans cross-subsidize health care for unauthorized immigrants to the tune of $18.5 billion a year,” Chris Conover from the Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research at Duke University revealed in a report last year, citing his research.

Reports have likewise suggested that the total cost of illegal immigration runs as high as $113 billion a year. Neither of these facts were pointed out by Wallace, who instead allowed Perez to continue talking.

Why do Republicans allow one cent of tax dollars going to illegals?
2 1/2 years & they did nothing to stop,they are in charge, socialism.
Not even a Rep/Con call in Congress to halt their handouts?

Very astute observation. Hint: they're on the same team, not on yours, not mine.

How does an illegal, working under the table jobs picked up at a Home Depot parking lot, pay taxes?
