House Democrats Vote to Give Illegal Immigrants Healthcare, Leave Veterans Hanging

By Jose Nino

On September 26, 2019, House Democrats voted to pass  H.R. 3525, the controversial U.S. Border Patrol Medical Screening Standards Act. 

This bill would effectively give illegal immigrants better healthcare than U.S. veterans and servicemembers.
Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise decried the passage of this bill on September 26th.

“House Democrats just voted to prioritize health care for illegal immigrants over health care for our veterans. What a disgrace!,” he said in a tweet.

U.S. Congressman Mark Walker also condemned this vote on his website.

He stated, “Earlier this week, I said impeachment was the House Democrats only agenda. I was mistaken. They just passed legislation that will give illegal immigrants better health care records than our veterans and servicemembers. More and more they are making their priorities clear and it’s absolutely shameful.”

Walker broke down what this bill entailed:

However, there is a major problem with this bill, which Walker notes:

The problem? The Veterans Administration (VA) will not have similar electronic health records systems in place for nine years and the Department of Defense (DOD) will not have those systems for another five years.

Additionally, the new requirements are not funded, so DHS would be forced to take funds from other agency efforts including border security, combatting terrorism, stopping drug and human trafficking, and natural disaster response.

As the days go by, the present-day Democratic Party continues to show its contempt towards everyday Americans by favoring destabilizing policies like mass migration.
