Talk about chutzpah!
Well, when you basically put illegal immigrants higher on the Totem Pole than your own citizens. When you’ve rolled out the red carpet for them. When you’ve made it clear that NOTHING will happen, this is what happens. You’ve made it, legally, their “second home”.
And now the illegal chickens are coming home to roost in your hospitals:
Kristin Gaspar, San Diego County’s Third District supervisor, sent a letter to Vice President Mike Pence in April saying that medical professionals were “increasingly worried about the rapid spread of COVID-19 in northern Mexico” and that there had been “a sudden influx of critically ill patients from Mexico” in Chula Vista, Calif. Gaspar asked for senior Trump administration officials to speak with local hospital executives and medical professionals to address the issue
Additionally, Scripps Health President and CEO Chris Van Gorder and Sharp HealthCare COVID‐19 Strategic Response Executive Consultant Daniel Gross wrote a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf asking for help in dealing with coronavirus cases at the border.
Hey, CA has talked about becoming their own nation in the past – perhaps we should let them and let them deal with this themselves. After all, decisions have consequences and the most delicious is that California has to come, hat in hand, begging for help after making it clear they have no problem in flouting immigration law.
Like all good Socialists, now they want to be made whole from the bad consequence from making a bad decision. Moral hazards accrue when those consequences are swept to the side. What’s to prevent CA from making MORE bad decisions in the future if Daddy Fed Govt keeps making them (or any other State) whole?
