Trump Cuts Illegal Immigration Strain on American Hospitals by 94 Percent

President Trumpís border controls have greatly reduced the strain that illegal immigration once put on American hospitals near the United States-Mexico border.

Since March 21, when the Centers for Disease Control and Preventionís (CDC) Title 42 order went into effect, U.S. Border Patrol agents have only taken about 230 border crossers to nearby American hospitals for treatment.

Before the CDC order, Border Patrol agents told Breitbart News they were admitting about 75 border crossers every day to American hospitals, or more than 2,200 border crossers a month. In February, Border Patrol took more than 2,000 border crossers to American hospitals.

The CDC order, which has cut illegal immigration by 84 percent and given Border Patrol agents the ability to swiftly deport border crossers, has helped drop that strain on American hospitals by 94 percent in just two months.

2. That makes sense. But I wonder about something else

in that article as well.

****

In recent months, American citizens living in northern Mexico have started traveling to southern California for health care, inundating local hospitals. Border Patrol agents said there is no federal statute that prevents American citizens from traveling back to the U.S. to receive better medical treatment.

****

First off, I get that itís LEGAL, but isnít it totally hypocritical to allow those people to take advantage of the system while theyíre not contributing to it? Living under our laws? Paying our taxes?

I also agree in principle with the restrictions on non-Americanís access to medical care. American citizens cannot afford it. We do not have the resources ffs, to be the free medical provider to the world. Nor should we have to. We donít take care of our own. There are American FAMILIES in the streets, hungry, sick, unsheltered. Itís not all drug addicts and Ďcraziesí. Irony alert: the states most guilty of citizen abuse and neglect are run by lefty politicians. The biggest cities housing foreigners and leaving Americans to fend for themselves, LA, SF, Seattle, New York City, are too.

We need a third party in this country.
