Stop Subsidized Health Care for Illegal Aliens in Illinois

Do you want to subsidize health insurance for illegal aliens with your tax dollars in Illinois?

The Illinois House of Representatives just passed House Bill (HB) 5736, which extends the ALL KIDS health care coverage program to offer comprehensive, taxpayer-subsidized healthcare for illegal aliens under the age of 18. The program has already cost the state over $500 million, and audits conducted by the Illinois Auditor General indicate that nearly 70% of enrollees and 65% of the total cost of the program comes from illegal aliens.

We need your help to stop this bill. Call your state Senator today and urge them to oppose HB 5736! Tell these elected officials that:

  • Subsidizing health coverage for illegal aliens encourages further illegal immigration to the state.
  • Illinois taxpayers already pay over $4.3 billion a year in costs associated with illegal immigration. Because federal law does not allow federal money to be spent on public benefits for illegal aliens, HB 5736 requires Illinois taxpayers to completely front the bill.
  • Illinois lawmakers should prioritize the health and welfare of its citizens and legal residents instead of reward lawbreakers.

Please act now! Call or email your state Senator and urge them to oppose HB 5736! Only with your help can we stop this bill.Click here to find the contact information for your state Senator.

Sincerely,
FAIR

    In San Pablo, California our hospital went bankrupt due to illigals use to give birth and all medical services. The USA has to stop giving our services to illigals. The free services food stamps and financial aid just in courage more to come illigally. With Hillary Clinton granting amnesty more will come seeking amnesty. It has to stop and Americans have to come first.

    Now is the time to vent. Fifteen years ago , this now retired airman fell in love with a Vietnamese national. Plans for marriage set. We filed countless reams of paperwork, paid more money than I care to count. Fought two governments and their embassies. Background checked, families background checked. Medical tests. We married and now have two children. The youngest is 5 yrs, the oldest is 8 yrs.. My wife became a baptized Christian, and LEGAL CITIZEN. My wife busts her *** to keep us afloat. I am unemployed, now deaf , I cannot get work, disability is doubtful, I am considered by the job market as a liability. Unemployment used up. Save for my veterans c115 check I have nothing else to give. We applied for but somehow don’t qualify for WIC, welfare, food stamps, housing assistance, heating assistance, education assistance or any other programs to help us. Soon facing foreclosure. We pay our taxes and follow the laws. HERE’S THE RUB WE HAVE NUMEROUS HOMELESS PEOPLE, NUMEROUS HOMELESS VETERANS, SOME OF THESE VETERANS ARE DECORATED, STUDENTS BEGGING FOR COLLEGE MONEY ON STREET CORNERS. YET ILLEGALS DONT PAY TAXES, OR THEY GET TAX BREAKS. THEY GET WIC, WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS, HOUSING ASSISTANCE, HEATING ASSISTANCE, EDUCATION ASSISTANCE, SOME STATES EVEN PROVIDE FREE MEDICAL AND DENTAL TO ILLEGALS, PLANS HAVE BEEN FORMED TO GIVE THEM VALID DRIVERS LICENSES. I previously stated I am unemployed, as are many Americans. With our prospective jobs going overseas , and all the standard impediments as obstacles to employment, NOW THROW IN COMPETITION FROM HOW MANY ILLEGALS. IT’S PRETTY MUCH GAME OVER. THESE ILLEGALS AREN’T EVEN PROPERLY VETTED, WHO KNOWS WHAT DISEASES THEY MAY HAVE, OR WHAT CRIMES THEY MAY HAVE COMMITTED. My wife once said she should have swam here. Come here illegaly. Then we would be set for life. I took an oath to defend this country from all enemies both foreign and domestic. I HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH LEGAL IMMIGRATION WELCOME TO AMERICA. SOMEBODY PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME, I’M SERIOUSLY DISILLUSIONED. AS I PREVIOUSLY STATED I TOOK AN OATH. ILLEGALS ARE ANY ENEMY , THREAT PLAGUE. WE ALL PAY FOR THEM. HOW IS IT THEY CAN BREAK THE LAW AND WE CANT. IN CLOSING SINCE WHEN OR WHY MUST WE PRESS 2 FOR ENGLISH. WHY AREN’T PRODUCTS LABELED IN MORE THAN 2 LANGUAGES. LORD HELP US ALL. KC USAF RETIRED

      You have a point about the diseases. It’s pretty much conceded that the fact that TB is on the rise again is due to illegals bringing it in. It’s another huge difference between now and a hundred years ago, in spite of all the people who carry on about how it’s the same as when our ancestors came. People were checked at Ellis Island and if they had any communicable disease they were sent back.

      FIRST OFF I THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE BROTHER. IT’S A SAD DAY WHEN WE AS AMERICANS ARE FORCED INTO SUCH AN UNJUST AND SUBMISSIVE RULE BY THE RICH AND THEY THINK ELITE FEW. NEVER BEFORE IN MY 65YRS HAVE I WITNESSED SUCH TYRANNY AND TREASONOUS ACT’S UPON THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THE BACKBONE OF THIS COUNTRY. THERE WILL BE A DAY OF RECKONING AND THAT DAY IS COMING WITH A SWITHNESS!

  6. Thanks for the contact FAIR!

    I heard a comment a couple weeks ago that a lot of the wealthy are moving out of Chicago because of the violence in certain neighborhoods. Baloney, there are always dangerous neighborhoods in every city, even smaller ones. There are places several miles from my house I would hesitate to go at night.

    The real reason people are leaving is the taxes. Ever increasing, every year. Just like California. They’re taxing everything they can. As Margaret Thatcher said, at some point socialists run out of other people’s money. It’s stay and be sucked dry or leave. Not much of a choice.
