    How America treats illegal aliens vs. veterans


    How America treats illegal aliens vs. veterans


    By Michelle Malkin • May 23, 2014 12:21 AM

    A government that fails to secure its borders is guilty of dereliction of duty. A government that fails to care for our men and women on the frontlines is guilty of malpractice. A government that puts the needs of illegal aliens above U.S. veterans for political gain should be prosecuted for criminal neglect bordering on treason.


    Compare, contrast and weep:


    In Sacramento, Calif., lawmakers are moving forward with a budget-busting plan to extend government-funded health insurance to at least 1.5 million illegal aliens.


    In Los Angeles, federal bureaucrats callously canceled an estimated 40,000 diagnostic tests and treatments for American veterans with cancer and other illnesses to cover up a decade-long backlog.


    In New York, doctors report that nearly 40 percent of their patients receiving kidney dialysis are illegal aliens. A survey of nephrologists in 44 states revealed that 65 percent of them treat illegal aliens with kidney disease.


    In Memphis, a VA whistleblower reported that his hospital was using contaminated kidney dialysis machines to treat America’s warriors. The same hospital previously had been investigated for chronic overcrowding at its emergency room, leading to six-hour waits or longer. Another watchdog probe found unconscionable delays in processing lab tests at the center. In addition, three patients died under negligent circumstances, and the hospital failed to enforce accountability measures.


    In Arizona, illegal aliens incurred health care costs totaling an estimated $700 million in 2009.


    In Phoenix, at least 40 veterans died waiting for VA hospitals and clinics to treat them, while government officials created secret waiting lists to cook the books and deceive the public about deadly treatment delays.


    At the University of California at Berkeley, UC President Janet Napolitano (former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security) has offered $5 million in financial aid to illegal alien students. Across the country, 16 states offer in-state tuition discounts for illegal aliens: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington. In addition, the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education, the University of Hawaii Board of Regents and the University of Michigan Board of Regents all approved their own illegal alien tuition benefits.


    In 2013, the nation’s most selective colleges and universities had enrolled just 168 American veterans, down from 232 in 2011. Anti-war activists have waged war on military recruitment offices at elite campuses for years. The huge influx of illegal aliens in state universities is shrinking the number of state-subsidized slots for vets. [And the Obama administration put military tuition assistance up front on the politically-driven chopping block during the sequestration circus last spring.]


    In 2013, the Obama Department of Homeland Security released 36,007 known, convicted criminal illegal aliens, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. The catch-and-release beneficiaries include thugs convicted of homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping, and thousands of drunk or drugged driving crimes.


    The same Department of Homeland Security issued a report in 2009 that identified returning combat veterans as worrisome terrorist and criminal threats to America.
    In Washington, Big Business and open-borders lobbyists are redoubling efforts to pass another massive illegal alien amnesty to flood the U.S. job market with low-wage labor.


    Across the country, men and women in uniform returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan have higher jobless rates than the civilian population. The unemployment rate for new veterans has spiked to its worst levels, nearing 15 percent. For veterans ages 24 and under, the jobless rate is a whopping 29.1 percent, compared to 17.6 percent nationally for the age group. A Forbes columnist reported last year that an Air Force veteran was told: “We don’t hire your kind.”



    And last December, Democrats led the charge to reduce cost-of-living increases in military pensions — while blocking GOP Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ efforts to close a $4.2 billion loophole that allows illegal aliens to collect child tax credits from the IRS, even if they pay no taxes. Stopping the fraudulent payments to illegal aliens would have offset the cuts to veterans’ benefits.


    America: medical and welfare welcome mat to the rest of the world, while leavings its best and bravest veterans to languish in hospital lounges, die waiting for appointments, and compete for jobs and educational opportunities against illegal border-crossers, document fakers, visa violators and deportation evaders. Shame on us.

    When I read things like this, my heart breaks. I keep asking, when will it end? When will the citizens of the United Sates ever matter? Why would our own Government abandon its own people in favor of illegals and votes? Illegals have such a huge negative impact on us and have for many years. It just gets worse as time goes on. It is a shame! We can never give up and surrender to such insanity!

    I read this story early this morning prior to being posted here. I hoped it would be posted. I agree with Kiara, first response is heartbreak, then outrage, outrage motivated by America turning its back collectively on its own warrior veterans! There were signs, if not warnings, when we went to war 13 years ago that our VA hospitals were not up to another surging influx of wounded warriors, but we did not rise up and demand that such should be accepted as costs of war, and force the previous administration to deal with factual reality.

    The Bush administration did not want to raise the budgeted costs of war, and did not even elevate taxes to offset any costs of war, not a dime. Most of it was financed with borrowed money. He, too, was a darling of aliens He even tried for an amnesty during his tenure. Costs of governing, education, medical, etc for non-citizens, that could have been directed to VA improvements.

    Obama spoke during campaigning that he knew that VA needed expansion and /or improvements. Now, no surprise, he claims ignorance even though media reprted it 4 months ago. Still no outrage from America when that became public knowledge. Even I only wrote one email to my congressman. Very inadequate on my part.

    Here again, more evidence why I do not trust a Democrat, but neither do I trust a Republican!! Neither party could buy my vote!!

    Sarah Palin: 'Un-American' for Obama Admin to Treat Illegals Better Than Vets

    by Tony Lee 23 May 2014, 3:20 PM PDT
    breitbart



    On Friday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama and Democrats for their "disgusting" treatment of veterans while they roll out the "red carpet" for illegal immigrants.

    President Barack Obama has hinted at more executive actions to ease deportations while Senate Democrats are pushing for sweeping amnesty legislation--along with establishment Republican leaders--in the next six weeks.

    "Compliance with these un-American acts in this Obama Era deserves the scorn of citizens; we will do all we can to oust those who follow the Obama/Pelosi/Reid lead on disgusting treatment of our military and red carpet treatment of their law-breaking chosen ones," Palin, who also said that "any politician siding with this tragic reality is unfit for office," wrote on her Facebook page.

    Palin linked to a column by conservative columnist Michelle Malkin, who has been one of the most relentless critics of illegal immigration for decades, in which Malkin wrote that "a government that fails to secure its borders is guilty of dereliction of duty":

    A government that fails to care for our men and women on the frontlines is guilty of malpractice. A government that puts the needs of illegal aliens above U.S. veterans for political gain should be prosecuted for criminal neglect bordering on treason.

    After giving numerous examples from coast to coast of illegal immigrants receiving taxpayer-funded benefits and straining the budgets of state and local governments even more, Malkin thunderously wrote, "America: medical and welfare welcome mat to the rest of the world, while leavings its best and bravest veterans to languish in hospital lounges, die waiting for appointments, and compete for jobs and educational opportunities against illegal border-crossers, document fakers, visa violators and deportation evaders. Shame on us."

    Other than saying "...any politician siding with this tragic reality is unfit for office." She does not offer any names of her party who support aliens cause, Bush, Ryan, Boehner, Cantor, Jeb Bush, McCain. Just a bit heavy handed on democrats only, so she is still a republican and undeserving of support! Now, who was it that was her Presidential running mate! Liar, liar, pants on fire!
