Skip to comments.Campaign will teach immigrants about health care overhaul (Commiecare™ begins)

When open enrollment begins in October under the new federal health care law, nearly 260,000 immigrants in Illinois will be eligible to apply for government-subsidized insurance, according to a study released Thursday.
However, many of those now uninsured people are either unaware of the Affordable Care Act or are afraid to seek insurance because they have family members who are in the country illegally, the report by the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights found.
Those families will be targeted in a monthslong campaign to raise awareness of the new law as it begins to affect millions of uninsured people across the country, said Luvia Quinones, director of the coalition's Immigrant Family Resource Program, which already seeks to raise health awareness among immigrants.

A big shout out to the American taxpayers from Mehico! Gracias!!!
Obama couldn’t have bankrupted this country any quicker if he tried. Oh, wait.
In October ‘260,000’ immigrants (JUST) in Illinois will be eligible to apply for government-subsidized insurance.
Why is it these people have to be illegals, can’t we sign them up in their home country so they don’t have to leave home?
DON’T ARGUE “NATIVIST” ARGUE SOVEREIGNTY
In that May 3rd speech Obama gave before the Mexican Anthropological Museum in which he blamed America for the violence in Mexico I believe he went even futhur. Theres a inference but never referenced by name to the Gasden purchase and border settlements US made with Mexico where Obama hinted he seems to side with the Mexican claims. Would those in attendence share that view is a question that should be asked, because I believe they would,.he does.
As a counter to the amnesty push Ive been arguing for reciprocal treatment. Pointing out that the Mexicans have been getting most favorable treatment above the rest of our neighbors both north and south. Theyre permitted to cross our borders and enter illegally and are allowed access to rights of citizenship (with the exception of voting which if the democrat party regains control over the House will happen) other nationals entering this country dont get.
Also by allowing Mexicans to do this any quota ration for immigration from other south and central American countrys are taken up by Mexicans while that country is laying claim to a large chunk of our sovereign territory.
We are already seeing the result of this in certain areas claimed by the Mexicans. Their national flag (standard) gets displayed over ours. Where there is a controlling number of Mexican nationals (illegals). Its displayed over certain institutions particularly schools accompanied by riots and disturbances. Blacks are threatend by Mexicans in certain sections of citys in those areas. Were courting trouble by not placing a value on our sovereignty and our citizenship.
Worse yet if a US citizen goes into Mexico never mind illegaly but legally. Theyll get 2nd class treatment. Land ownership in title is prohibited period. And there are a slew of regulations they must comply with. Which doesnt apply to a citizen of Mexico.
By not insisting on reciprocity particularly on those who have entered this country illegally were offering no incentive for assimilation and were not easing the burden for our fellow citizens who for what ever reason decided to live in Mexico.
Most of them have memorized it.
Didn’t Rand Paul tell them he never met an immigrant looking for a handout?
May Fifth is now the official MEXICAN GO HOME Day.
” Didnt Rand Paul tell them he never met an immigrant looking for a handout? “
Tells us all we need to know about Rand Paul.
In defense of Rand he was talking to them, lying to them when he said that.
Sounds like after sweet talk flattery he will still be against any amnesty bill the Senate votes on.
Rubio is more problematic because he is trying to sell conservatives on this Schumer/McCain/Durbin piece of crap.
And he is outright lying to US about the bill to do it.
Last Week Levin went on an entertaining rant over amnesty but in the process called Rubio :’My good friend’
