Boxer: Redirect Border Funds for Immigrant Health Care
Breitbart.com ^ | 06/14/2013 | by Mike Flynn

Posted on 06/15/2013 3:52:44 PM PDT by Carbonsteel

Sen. Barbara Boxer is planning an amendment to the Senate's immigration bill which would redirect funds committed to border security to reimburse state and local governments providing health care to newly legalized immigrants. Boxer plans to take $250 million, and likely much more, out of border security and use it to underwrite uninsured immigrants health care costs.

Democrats are dead set on making sure they get amnesty and wide open borders to guarantee and permanent voting block for the progressive agenda.

This bill just needs to die all together. Enforce existing law!!!

Enforce it? They’re freaking suing The State of Arizona for doing just that. We’re done. Wish I could hang my hat on something positive, but right now I don’t know what that is.

Does she mean “Illegal immigrant” healthcare?

Or does she mean, “you mean, greedy, close-minded Americans refusing to allow legal immigrants healthcare money, fork it over”?

Appalling. Rubio now has a very bad case of fleas. It happens when politicians usurp the legislative process and lay down with dogs.

Boxer: Redirect Border Funds for Immigrant Health Care

Listen Carpetbagging witch. Better think about it before those of us from Marin County start remembering all the dirty tricks you pulled here that didn't work even in DC.

Back to the crazy-aunt basement!

The Ds will keep loading on ridiculous amendments to kill this thing. The last thing they want is for this to pass...so they can say the Rs are racist. And, they’ll make sure that every illegal is, somehow, illegally registered to vote. They have to have an embittered underclass, no matter where they can find it.

I hope you’re right. I know it’s tough now. If we get a sea-change in leadership, we may be able to take measures like some states have to discourage illegals from staying here. Then they repatriate and the country improves.

If this thing passes, we’re in trouble.

Let me see if I got this right. Fed law prohibited welfare and public assistance benefits to illegals, but many states handed out the candy and now Boxer wants to reimburse them?

Someone should send this story (headed with a kind explanatory note) to Mssrs Rubio, McCain, Flake and of course, Ms. Graham.

BTW, Ms. Boxer is regarded by many to be the stupidest human in the Senate (not just ignorant, were talking a slow CPU.)

There should be a bill, lawfully submitted to confiscate
the homes of the US Congress, Senators FIRST,
in their mad attempt to finance the entire planet
and Islam.

WHY ARE THEY ALWAYS IMMUNE TO THEIR OWN LAWS?

HOW ABOUT HAVING THEM PAY FIRST FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS.

There is no point in even bringing this to a vote in the house. The democrats have proven again and again that they are utterly without honesty or honor. Anything the republicans vote on in the house will be converted to a pure marxist bill when it returns to the senate.

If the illegals want to get violent about it then the country will see who the democrats are cuddling up with.

Boxer cares more about Mexican citizens then she cares about American citizens.

The Democratic Party and their Oligarchial supporters in the Republican Party have made themselves into threats against our republic and have created numerous national security threats.

This is so kooky that some Dims might speak out against it. But if anyone, anywhere had any doubts about the true intent of the Dims regarding border security, Boxer isn't too far from what they intend.

Of course, she's also a scatterbrained nitwit.

I agree with political points made on this board but I also emphatically don’t want the bill to result in a net increase in government spending. Fat chance, huh?

I cannot for the life of me figure out why the concept of border security is such a foreign concept in DC. It is common sense everywhere else.

Here's a far better idea: Take $250 million from immigrant health care, and use it to improve border security.

....the Dems’ll make sure every illegal is registered to vote under multiple identities....even if they live in Mexico....

I hear the DNC took a cue from the IRS---and prepared a video to loosen up the senate for the vote. The video is a rollicking, playful take on the Cheech and Chong movie, "Coming to America"....a belly-laugh comedy about crossing the border illegally.

Sen Schumer plays Cheech and Sen Rubio plays Chong.

Janet Napolitano plays "Rosita," owner of the Mexican cantina, "Reconquista"....she's seen pouring tequila shots for the future US citizens, who are gathered to fill out welfare, EITC refund, and voter registration forms...all in Spanish.

Cameo roles feature Obama as a lovable, compassionate, braindead Stepen Fetchit character who sweeps up the cantina. Michele Obama plays "Conchita," a fiery senorita who has a (cough) room above the cantina.

Sen Menendez plays a helpful "coyote" charging the impoverished Mexicans $10,000 each for a ride across the border and a packet of forged documents.

Barbara Boxer greets the illegals in lace-trimmed mantilla and castanets---performing a rip-roaring Mexican Hat Dance as the illegals cross the border.
