How could it possibly not be true?:
Oh my. If this is true, then what on earth are the Republicans going to rally behind?
...it’s more than gratifying when two different entities on two different coasts of the nation, independently release studies that say the same thing: “Undocumented immigrants are not a burden on society.”
This week in California, the University of California’s School of Public Health released a report that found undocumented Latino immigrants do not cause a drag on the U.S. healthcare system as they are always being accused.
In fact, the vast majority of undocumented immigrants don’t even have a regular doctor or healthcare provider and only visit the ER as a last resort.“Low rates of use of health-care services by Mexican immigrants and similar trends among other Latinos do not support public concern about immigrants’ overuse of the health care system,” the researchers wrote.“Undocumented individuals demonstrate less use of health care than U.S.-born citizens and have more negative experiences with the health care that they have received,” they said.
It’s a finding that is repeated in today’s released study by the Immigration Policy Center (IPC), the think tank of the American Immigration Law Foundation.
The IPC study found that:per capita health care expenditures were 55 percent lower for immigrants than for natives in 1998. On average, immigrants received about $1,139 in health care, compared with $2,546 for native-born residents. Although all immigrants are eligible for emergency medical services, they had lower expenditures for emergency room visits, doctor’s office visits, outpatient hospital visits, inpatient hospital visits, and prescription drugs.
But the IPC study doesn’t stop there.It also addresses the accusations by defamation critics who say undocumented immigrants overuse government services, increase the poverty rate and don’t pay taxes.
They've had too many hilariously public sexual exploits to beat up on gays.
They've been caught too many times with their hands in the till or their votes being manipulated by lobbyists to be declare themselves against corruption.
They can't claim they are for family values when they clearly don't care when Foley was hunting underage pages or Bush cuts health care for children.
They can't proclaim they are more popular than Democrats when they have to phone jam, or cage voters, or mess with electronic voting machines to get elected.
They can't say they are for less government when their government is the most bloated and expensive one in recent memory.
They can't declare they are better at governing when every functioning program or system they have diligently tried to break, starve, or neglect.
They cannot claim they are for peace when they make their money with war.
So what can they attack that will rally the masses?
