SSI To Cut Health Funding For Illegals After Costs Skyrocket

Supporting illegal aliens is all fun and games right up till a state like the Sanctuary State Of Illinois has to actually practice what they preach and pay for it

Illinois to cut state-funded health care for illegal immigrants, green card holders after soaring costs

Illinois officials are poised to slash a pair of state-funded health insurance programs that cover non-citizens and illegal immigrants, citing soaring costs that have surpassed their estimated projections.

In a statement last week, the state announced changes would be coming to the eligibility requirements for the Healthcare Benefits for Immigrant Adults and Seniors program, as the cost to run the initiative ballooned to more than $1 billion over the last year.

Illegal immigrants and non-citizen green card holders who have been in the U.S. for fewer than five years will no longer be covered by a pair of the state’s health insurance programs beginning April 1, according to the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS).

“The Department is also committed to ensuring that individuals who are no longer eligible for benefits… receive helpful information about their options so they can connect to alternative coverage, particularly through the federal ACA Marketplace,” the statement read.

I’m shocked. I would have thought the citizens who support the politicians that deem Illinois a sanctuary state would be happy to either forgo lots of state funding for their own needs or pony up a lot more of their earnings. This is not very charitable of them

Last year, Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzer’s budget included a $220 million estimate for the program for FY 2024. But The State Journal-Register reported at the time that a top state health official briefed the Senate’s appropriations committee and said the new estimate was a staggering $880 million above that.

Officials said that both the cost of care and the number of those enrollees have dramatically exceeded their estimates. The state had previously estimated 98,500 enrollees, but said there would be over 120,000 signed up in FY 24.

Huh. You don’t say.

    70% of undocumented work
    In Illinois, about 1/3 own their own homes.
    These are figures from 2019 which show 420000 in Illinois. My guess is that total number has increased by 50%
    Most of the immigrants are “military aged” males who like generations of immigrants before them have come here and are willing to work hard. 60% have at least a high school diploma.

      Johnny-gee, thanks, but does any of that decrease the cost to the state of Illinois?
      No, it doesn’t, but thanks for the irrelevant info…

      Careful, H. The MAGAts here are triggered by numbers, data, figures, statistics and citations.

      They only believe in what they’re told by the MAGA King and his acolytes like Mr Teach.

        Rimjob is like a lot of so-called progressives. If someone has a different opinion that he can’t directly counter with factual discourse he stomps his fat feet and tosses a little hissy fit and lies about other’s motivations.

      So you got away leftist propaganda website supported by a leftist propaganda activist organization and you quote their numbers and expect us to believe it? Are you really that stupid? Because we aren’t? You’re gonna lead a lot more proof of numbers like that then what you can peel off of a propaganda site run by immigration activists like you.

      Why is it you leftist never support America in anything? America is always wrong. Besides, why would I believe information from a guy who thinks a male can become pregnant?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Hi CarolAnn,

        Fair enough on the citation source. The Migration Policy Institute is a liberal think tank.

        What do you mean by liberals “never supporting America in anything”? Can you give a few examples?

        I don’t know of anyone who believes a male can get pregnant, but I know of many who believe Trump won the 2020 election.

        There are XY females (rightists call them males) who have all the female anatomy at birth (except ovaries). They would normally receive female sex hormones at “puberty” and could conceivably carry an implanted zygote to term.

    On the subject of immigration, why do you believe/feel the Republicans object to any legislation to tighten the border and finance more border agents and judges?

    The Cartels have declared war on the USA and are now shipping deadly batchs of Fentanyl to the USA which is then distributed by all of those “MILITARY AGED” Illegals that the democrats let into our country.

    Joe Biden is a Criminal. He should be impeached by the left and right. I cannot believe that their are not 66 senators who believe that Biden is not a criminal, has seriously failed as president and is in fact failing to uphold his duty to PROTECT and DEFEND the CONSTITUTION of the United States of America.

    In January, the Mexican military arrested Ovidio Guzman – son of the notorious Sinaloa Cartel leader known as “El Chapo.” The arrest played out like the battles we saw for years in the Middle East between government armed forces and terrorist groups.

    The Sinaloa Cartel, equipped with .50 caliber machine guns and armored vehicles, killed 10 Mexican soldiers and injured dozens. Thousands of Mexican soldiers were involved, and the operation was finally completed after days of intense warfare in the streets of Culiacan, Mexico.


    The five men were left prostrate on the sidewalk outside their black pickup truck, their shirts pulled over their heads, bare torsos pressed against the ground, their bound hands spread before them almost in supplication.

    The handwritten letter on the truck’s windshield read like a formal, albeit chilling and remarkable apology: the Gulf Cartel Scorpion Group was very sorry that their members accidentally shot and killed two Americans and a Mexican bystander while kidnapping two more U.S. citizens.

    The men were being offered up to the authorities, the letter said, to make amends for disturbing the peace.

    So….they have infiltrated the USA and have set up their cartels inside of the USA thanks to the DEMOCRATS and JOE BIDEN……

    Americans inform yourself. MILITARY AGED SINGLE MEN coming into this border from Mexico does not mean they are here to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! More likely they are here to MAKE AMERICA MEXICO AGAIN……….OR MA MA.
