California considering tax-payer funded health care for illegal aliens

illegal

Run with this demorats. It will be sure to help your much anticipated November “Blue Wave!”

From San Diego Tribune: Amid escalating tension — and even legal battles — between California and the Trump administration over immigration, an effort is underway to expand health care coverage for unauthorized immigrants illegal aliens in the state.

Just last week, President Donald Trump met with state and local leaders from California at the White House, including Escondido Mayor Sam Abed and county supervisor Kristin Gaspard, to applaud them for taking stands to oppose state immigration policies his administration finds unconsitutional. Meanwhile, Politico is describing this health care effort from Democrats in Sacramento as “one of the most daring examples yet of blue-state Democrats thumbing their nose at Trump.”

These bills combine two of America’s most complex and most talked about public policy issues: immigration and health care.

Here’s what you should know.

What is the legislation?

There are currently two proposals to expand health care coverage for unauthorized immigrants illegal aliens older than 19 in the works in California, one in the Senate and one in the Assembly. The lawmakers who wrote them come from the Central Valley and Los Angeles County and their bills are identical.

In the Senate, a bill has been introduced by Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens. Read it here. In the Assembly, the bill was introduced by Assemblyman Joaquin Arambula, D-Fresno. Read it here.

Both extend eligibility for full Medi-Cal benefits to individuals of all ages who would otherwise be eligible for those benefits but for their immigration status.

How would this work?

Plans would be administered through Medi-Cal and require copayments and premium contributions like other Medi-Cal plans. Funding is a key obstacle for these efforts.

Both bills say they would seek federal funding but use state funds if federal funds are unavailable. Medi-Cal is partially administered and funded by the federal Medicaid program.

Supporters suggest California’s billions of dollars in surplus taxpayer money could cover the cost. The state’s legislative analyst’s office estimates the state’s total net cost would be $3 billion in the 2018-19 budget year.

How does health care currently work for unauthorized immigrants illegal aliens?

At least 1.8 million unauthorized adult immigrants illegal aliens in California are uninsured, according to The Sacramento Bee, and most depend on expensive emergency room visits for health care. Lara made that point in a recent interview with Politico about the legislation.

“We are trying to address the fact that, whether you like it or not, our undocumented illegal community needs the care, and we are paying for it anyway,” he said.

Medi-Cal coverage is available for unauthorized immigrants illegal aliens seeking emergency or pregnancy-related services if they meed certain requirements.

What else do I need to know?

There is precedent for such a health care expansion in California. In the 2015-2016 state budget, Medi-Cal coverage was extended to unauthorized illegal children.

Sanctuary Oregon: Illegal alien who was previously deported accused of nail gun rampage

Previously deported illegal alien Ascencio-Molina has sanctuary protection in Oregon/Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office photo

From Fox News: An illegal immigrant alien who was previously deported was arrested in Oregon on Saturday after he went on a rampage and almost killed his co-worker with a nail gun, officials said.

Jesus Ascencio-Molina, 24, a native of Mexico, was arrested on Saturday, April 14, after he assaulted Andres C. Marcelo, 24, of Wood Village, Ore., a fellow construction worker, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said. Deputies were called to the scene of a home in Happy Valley after responding to reports of an assault.

Marcelo was injured after Ascencio-Molina allegedly shot at him with a nail gun. Ascencio-Molina fled on foot and was arrested the next day. Marcelo was injured but listed in stable condition, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said.

Carissa Cutrell, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman, told the Daily Caller the sheriff’s office would most likely not notify ICE if and when Ascencio-Molina is released from jail.

“Even though we lodged a detainer, due to Clackamas County’s policy of non-cooperation, it is unlikely that ICE will be notified in the event Ascencio-Molina is released from custody before his criminal case is resolved,” Cuttrell said.

Ascencio-Molina was deported in 2012 after he was charged in Multnomah County, Ore., the Daily Caller reported.

“Ascencio-Molina was previously detained by ICE on immigration violations in 2012 after ICE officer encountered him at the Multnomah County Detention Center after his arrest on local criminal charges,” Cuttrell said. “An immigration judge subsequently granted Ascencio-Molina voluntary departure to Mexico, and ICE returned him to his home country in 2013.”

It was not immediately known when Asencio-Molina returned to the U.S. ICE issued a formal detention request Monday to the Clackamas County Jail.

Ascencio-Molina was charged with assault and attempted murder and is currently at the Clackamas County Jail. His bail was set at $250,000.

Monsters among us: MS-13 behead and cut out man’s heart; Salvadorean torture-kills elderly veteran

These are the monsters that our government let in, who are protected and shielded by sanctuary cities and states.

In November 2017, MS-13 El Salvadorean gang members lured an unidentified Maryland man to a park on the outskirt of Washington, D.C. They stabbed the man 100 times, decapitated him, cut his heart out, then threw the body into the grave they dug for him.

19-year-old Miguel Lopez-Abrego was arrested and charged with murder. (See DCG’s post here).

Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that on April 5, 2018, Stacie Mendoza and Jose Mendoza tortured 70-year-old military veteran Kenneth Coyle, a retired contractor for Naval Air Station Lemoore, to get him to reveal his bank account details and passwords.

Naval Air Station Lemoore is in California’s King and Fresno Counties.

The Mendozas restrained the elderly man on a bed in his house in the small city of Hanford, near the Naval Air Station. They beat him to get access to his financial information, then strangled him to death. Coyle died of blunt force trauma and suffocation.

Coyle had first met Stacie Mendoza at a Hanford restaurant where she worked as a waitress. As their relationship developed, she started getting access to his bank account and getting money from him.

A few days later the Mendozas and their three children drove Coyle’s body to nearby Madera County, where they burned it while their children watched. Afterwards, the Mendozas returned to Coyle’s house to steal more things and were spotted by property managers, who called police.

Officers tracked Coyle’s cellphone to the Mendozas’ home in Fresno. Police later arrested them at a restaurant near Los Angeles International Airport. Jose Mendoza had a plane ticket to his native El Salvador, as well as Coyle’s credit card. The Mendozas are being held without bail. Their children are in the custody of Child Protective Services.

According to The Telegraph, the MS in MS-13 stands for Mara Salvatrucha, said to be a combination of Mara, meaning gang; Salva, for Salvador; and trucha, which translates roughly into street smarts. The 13 represents the position of M in the alphabet. The gang formed in Los Angeles in the 1980s, comprised of Salvadorean immigrants fleeing their country’s civil war.

MS-13 is believed to be active in 46 states. According to the Trump DOJ, there are currently 10,000 MS-13 members, making it one of the largest criminal enterprises in America.

President Trump has made rounding up and removing gang members a priority of his administration. In July 2017, during a fiery speech on Long Island — the site of several gang murders, Trump called MS-13 “animals” and promised to “destroy” them. He said:

“we’re going to restore safety to our streets and peace to our communities, and we’re going to destroy the vile criminal cartel, MS-13, and many other gangs. But MS-13 is particularly violent. They don’t like shooting people because it’s too quick, it’s too fast. I was reading — one of these animals was caught — in explaining, they like to knife them and cut them, and let them die slowly because that way it’s more painful, and they enjoy watching that much more. These are animals….

For many years, they exploited America’s weak borders and lax immigration enforcement to bring drugs and violence to cities and towns all across America. They’re there right now because of weak political leadership, weak leadership, weak policing, and in many cases because the police weren’t allowed to do their job….

It is the policy of this administration to dismantle, decimate and eradicate MS-13…. And they were all let in here over a relatively short period of time. Not during my period of time, believe me. But we’re getting them out. They’re going to jails, and then they’re going back to their country. Or they’re going back to their country, period.”

According to a White House fact sheet on February 6, 2018:

  • In October 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions designated MS-13 as a priority for the Department of Justice (DOJ)’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces.
  • Criminal charges have been filed against more than 4,000 members of MS-13.
  • ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) made 4,818 criminal arrests related to gang activity in FY 2017, 796 of whom are MS-13 gang members and associates — an 83% increase in arrests from FY 2016.
  • In FY 2017, U.S. Border Patrol Agents arrested 536 gang-affiliated illegal aliens, of whom 228, more than 40 percent, were affiliated with MS-13.

DHS reveals number of MS-13 and other gang members released by demorat sanctuary policies

DACA

From Daily Mail: The Department of Homeland Security says that so-called sanctuary states shielded dozens of alleged MS-13 gang members from deportation during an eight-month period between 2016 and 2017.

The findings were provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) – the federal agency responsible for deporting undocumented migrants illegal aliens.

According to ICE, two-thirds of the 142 suspected gang members that ICE wanted to deport were released in California.

The data was reported by the anti-immigrant (no bias there, Daily Mail) think tank Center for Immigration Studies.

California has a sanctuary policy that is considered one of the most progressive in the country. Sanctuary policies are local guidelines in which state and local authorities limit their cooperation with the federal government in enforcing immigration laws.

ICE says that the releases of the alleged MS-13 gang members took place in 37 local jurisdictions across 13 states. The most releases of alleged gang members – 22 – took place in Santa Clara County, California.

San Diego County leaders voted on Tuesday to join the Trump administration’s court challenge to California’s sanctuary law, amid a conservative backlash to the so-called sanctuary movement.

California moved to the forefront of political opposition to Republican President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration with enactment last year of the first statewide law aimed at restricting local law enforcement participation in federal deportation activity.

The measure bars state and local authorities from keeping undocumented immigrants illegal aliens who are incarcerated locked up any longer than otherwise necessary for the purpose of allowing US immigration agents to take them into custody.

It also prohibits police from routinely inquiring about the immigration status of people detained in an investigation or in traffic stops.

But the law, known as SB-54, allows local police to notify the federal government if they have arrested an undocumented immigrant illegal aliens with a felony record and permits immigration agents access to local jails.

The Trump administration has harshly criticized California’s law and similar sanctuary ordinances adopted by local governments across the country, saying they threaten public safety by protecting criminals who should to be deported.

Of the 37 jurisdictions that allegedly released MS 13 gang members, all but one of them – Maricopa County, Arizona – are sanctuary localities.

Authorities in Maryland have had to deal with the largest number of suspected MS 13 figures. ICE figures show that Montgomery County released five MS-13 members while Prince George’s County released four.

Between 2012 and 2018, 84 alleged MS-13 members were arrested for gang-related activity.
