This is ridiculous. Trump said Mexico would pay for the wall, so that is what should happen. No money from Mexico, no wall. This is just another opportunity for the GOP to signal their embrace of white supremacy. For the record, undocumented immigrants pay taxes. The IRS issues Individual Tax Identification Numbers which are used to pay income taxes to the tune of approximately $7B per year (Business Insider, 2012). And, it’s already against federal policy to use tax dollars to provide either Medicaid, CHIP, or ACA subsidies to undocumented immigrants. Undocumented immigrants receive an indirect benefit by going to safety net hospitals which receive funds and tax exemptions. I guess the bottom line of this legislation is that people who come the United States should expect to be left to die if they get sick or injured (usually doing a job Americans won’t do-like harvesting crops or working as custodians). We should be ashamed if this is who we are as a people.
