The Biden administration spent $324 million in taxpayers’ money on dental and health care for illegal immigrants in detention centers

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement presented its annual report last weekwhich shows how far the Biden administration has gone to deal with illegal immigrants who have broken American laws and wormed their way into the nation.

The 2022 ICE Health Service Corps operating budget was approximately $324 million, an increase of $8 million from the prior year.

According to the annual ICE report, that money was spent on “direct care — including medical and dental health services — for over 118,000 non-citizens housed at 19 IHSC-operated facilities across the United States, which increased over the course of the course by more than 1.1 million visits meant the fiscal year.”

The IHSC also “monitored compliance with health-related detention standards for more than 120,500 non-citizens housed in 163 facilities without IHSC staff.”

Among those foreigners were illegal immigrants, 2.37 million of whom poured into the southern border last year and nearly 500,000 already have encountered by the end of November of this financial year.

One benefit of breaking into the country and ending up in ICE custody is “an initial medical screening, including for mental health needs, plus any necessary follow-up care” at taxpayer expense.

These services are also provided to persons who are identified as “public security” or at risk of flying.

That care is provided by 1,640 officers from the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, officers and contract physicians at ICE-owned facilities and elsewhere.

After compound notes recently developed by Gallup along with the nonprofit West Health, nearly 112 million (44%) of Americans are currently struggling to pay for health care.

West Health, in a March 31, 2022 press release, found that unlike the illegal immigrants in ICE prisons, more than a third of the “desperate costs [American] Adults report cutting back on utility bills in the past 12 months, and half have cut back on groceries in the past 12 months to pay for necessary health care.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention written down in 2020, 31.6 million Americans had health insurance, mostly those under the age of 65.

It found that 3.7 million American children were uninsured.

As more foreigners enjoy services that millions of Americans don’t have, US taxpayers shoulder an increasing burden.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform released a study in September showing that taxpayers must shoulder an additional $20.4 billion each year to meet the needs of illegal immigrants who entered the United States under Biden.

FAIR revealed that this annual figure was not included in the estimated $140 billion per year that taxpayers have already had to come up with to offset the provision of services and benefits to the “long-term” illegal immigrant population.

In 2018 – years before the border crisis exploded under Biden – Forbes reported Americans cross-subsidize health care for illegal immigrants by $18.5 billion a year.

A new Los Angeles Times/YouGov poll conducted Dec. 9-14 highlighted how unpopular the Biden administration’s immigration policies are.

The middle square reported that 64% of respondents say illegal immigration is a problem, while 42% said they should be expelled to their countries of origin.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who announced this week that he will sue the Biden administration over a rule that penalizes taxpayers to pay for illegal immigration, said that the Biden administration is “committed to opening the borders to aliens unable to fend for themselves.
