White House to deny immigrants who cannot afford health care


CITIZENS, THE RULE ASSESSED TO GO INTO EFFECT ON NOVEMBER 3RD. ERIC: JEFF MASON, WHITE HOUSE REPORTER FROM REUTERS, GOOD TO SEE YOU. OBVIOUSLY THIS RULE IS AIMED AT TRYING TO GET PEOPLE OUT BY EXCLUDING THOSE WHO CAN’T PAY FOR HEALTHCARE.>>HE IS TALKING ABOUT THIS COOL, TALKING ABOUT LEGAL IMMIGRATION, PEOPLE APPLYING FOR VISAS, TO GET A GREEN CARD, TO MEET WITH FAMILY MEMBERS BUT THEY ARE DOING IT LEGALLY. THE WHITE HOUSE HAS HAD A TWO PRONGED APPROACH IN ITS IMMIGRATION POLICY. TRYING TO CUT DOWN ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, THE PROMISE TO BUILD A WALL BUT ALSO TO CURB LEGAL IMMIGRATION AND ACTORS CONTROVERSY. ERIC: 535,000 OR SO PEOPLE, IT COULD AFFECT THEM EVERY YEAR. THESE ARE LEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHO APPLY FOR VISAS AND YOU HAVE TO SHOW YOU HAVE YOUR OWN HEALTH CARE OR CAN PAY FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH CARE AS YOU GRANT THAT VISA.>>IN PARTICULAR HIS TOP IMMIGRATION ADVISOR, STEPHEN, REALLY EAGER TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF COSTS IMMIGRANTS PLACE ON THE UNITED STATES THAT THEY VIEW AS THE COST OF IMMIGRANTS ENTERING THE UNITED STATES INCLUDING HEALTHCARE. ERIC: THEY MENTIONED THAT IN A PROCLAMATION, QUOTE, COST ASSOCIATED WITH THIS CARE ARE PASSED ON TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN THE FORM OF HIGHER TAXES, HIGHER PREMIUMS AND HIGHER FEES FOR MEDICAL SERVICES. UNCOMPENSATED CARE COSTS THE OVERALL MEASURE OF REIMBURSED SERVICES HOSPITALS GIVE THEIR PATIENTS, EXCEEDED $35 BILLION IN EACH OF THE LAST WE 10 YEARS AMOUNTING TO $7 MILLION ON AVERAGE FOR EACH HOSPITAL IN THE UNITED STATES, DRIVING HOSPITALS INTO INSOLVENCY. THE WHITE HOUSE HAS $3 BILLION A YEAR. THERE HAS BEEN TALK ABOUT THIS.>>IT IS A CRUSHING AMOUNT BUT THEY DON’T SPECIFY THAT $35 BILLION IS IMMIGRANTS, THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT ALL REIMBURSED CARE. I SUSPECT THAT MEANS IS HERE LEGALLY AND OTHER AMERICAN CITIZENS WHO DON’T HAVE HEALTHCARE. AS WE TALKED ABOUT BEFORE THAT IS THE SAME ARGUMENT PEOPLE ARGUING FOR UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE AND OBAMACARE WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS IN OFFICE MADE FOR HAVING A BROADER HEALTHCARE COVERAGE, TO BE SURE YOU DON’T HAVE THESE COSTS FOR PEOPLE SHOWING UP IN HOSPITALS AND EMERGENCY ROOMS WITHOUT HEALTHCARE. ERIC: IS IT BASED IN FACT? PEOPLE COME TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT?>>INDEED. THAT IS A DEBATABLE FACT BETWEEN THE TWO SIDES ON THIS ISSUE. ERIC: IT IS CALLED DRACONIAN AND WE WILL SEE CHALLENGES IN COURT.>>I THINK SO AND THAT IS THE PRECEDENT FOR A LOT OF THINGS, THEY END UP IN COURT. IT DOESN’T GIVE A LOT OF TIME TO PEOPLE WORKING IN COUNSELOR OFFICES AROUND THE WORLD TO COME UP WITH OR STUDY OR FIGURE OUT WHAT THE CRITERIA WILL BE. THERE JOB GOING FORWARD IF THIS PROCLAMATION GOES INTO EFFECT, TO TEST OR REQUIRE PEOPLE WHO ARE APPLYING FOR THOSE VISAS TO SHOW THEY CAN PAY FOR IT. ERIC: THEY SHOW UP AND GET A VISA SAYING THIS IS MY HEALTH CARD. HOW DOES IT WORK?>>THE STATE DEPARTMENT WILL SET OUT GUIDELINES BUT I HAVEN’T SEEN THOSE YET AND I IMAGINE PEOPLE ARE EAGER TO SEE THEM. ERIC: YOU COULD ASK THE PRESIDENT NEXT TIME YOU SEE HIM. I WOULD BE REMISS IN MY PROFESSIONAL RESPONSE ABILITIES IF I DID NOT PRAISE YOUR DILIGENCE, YOUR DEDICATION AND THOSE QUESTIONS WITH THE PRESIDENT, YOU HAVE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES YELLING AT YOU IN FRONT OF 200 PEOPLE, MILLIONS ON TELEVISION WATCHING. HERE IS HOW JEFF MASON, A TUTORIAL IN JOURNALISM SCHOOL HANDLING A PRESIDENT WHO IS YELLING AT HIM.>>THE QUESTION IS WHAT DID YOU WANT BRETT VELICOVICH TO DO ABOUT VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN?>>ARE YOU TALKING TO ME?>>A FOLLOW-UP OF WHAT I JUST ASKED YOU.>>WE HAVE THE PRESIDENT OF FINLAND ASKING A QUESTION.>>I WANT TO FOLLOW UP ON THE WHEN I ASKED YOU.>>ASK HIM A QUESTION.>>I WILL.>>I’VE GIVEN YOU A LONG ANSWER. S CHRISTIANSEN A QUESTION. DON’T BE RUDE.>>I JUST WANT YOU TO HAVE A CHANCE TO ANSWER THE QUESTION I ASKED.>>YOU WERE COOL, COLLECTED, PROFESSIONAL. WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND?>>THANK YOU FOR SAYING THAT. WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH MY HEAD WAS DO YOUR JOB AND THAT IS WHAT I WAS TRYING TO DO. HE DIDN’T ANSWER THE QUESTION AND I WANTED TO FOLLOW UP. THAT IS OUR JOB IN THOSE SITUATIONS.>>EVER SEE HIM AT OTHER TIMES? HAS HE SAID ANYTHING TO YOU? RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH HIM?>>HE CALLED ON ME THAT DAY AND I HAVEN’T HAD A CHANCE TO ASK A QUESTION. I WAS TRAVELING THE DAY AFTER THE PRESS CONFERENCE TO FLORIDA. HE DIDN’T COME BACK THAT DAY ON AIR FORCE ONE. WE HAVEN’T SEEN EACH OTHER SINCE. HE HAS HAD OPPORTUNITIES TO YELL AT OTHER JOURNALISTS BEFORE. I WILL MOVE ON FROM THIS. ERIC: DAN RATHER AND RICHARD NIXON, PRESIDENT NIXON SAID ARE YOU RUNNING FOR SOMETHING AND HE SAID NO, ARE YOU? YOU WERE NOT RUDE IN ANY WAY. YOU ARE DILIGENT AND KEPT ASKING TO GET TO A POINT.>>I APPRECIATE THAT AND THAT IS OUR JOB, TO DO FOLLOW-UP.

    We need to cut the amount of green cards we hand out by at least half. Between the "reporters" and the democrats constantly poking the President and you wonder why he's getting pissed. It's been going on for 3 years !!!!!

  • terri flores

    This is just one of the reasons the Democrats are after President Trump. Watch this video on RKTNN truth News Network. Called Trump signs order cracking down on welfare dependent legal immigration. It's 22:36 minutes of a very informative must watch posted in May23,2019. Then pass the video on. TRUMP 2020

  • Jack leone

    Hey you don't pay into the system you don't get the benefits of the system!! and no Social Security either!! let the Democrats pay for immigrants! since they care so much!!

  • 앤더슨프란

    Trumpcare looks pretty comprehensive and affordable. How much could the best and greatest healthcare cost? Does this include people who are coming on visas and overstay the visa? They should get signed for trumpcare too. They can get it done in the EDs.

  • GETBENDT

    Thank you president Trump. We want to welcome immigrants but we can not keep paying for people who can’t pay their own way. We can not import a burden for the American taxpayer. I feel sorry for people who are unhealthy or who have issues but it is not our responsibility to fork over our money for their needs.

  • DENISE JONE

    If you can't afford health care you should not come to the US. Enough. We do not want all these free loaders. My health care cost 850.00 a month for Medicare for my husband and me. Why should I pay for someone else to have health care. Most American just can't afford it.

  • American Infidel

    Same thing they do in many other countries. Italy requires you to have health insurance, a job and you have to show bank statements to prove you are financially stable.

  • The Man

    What’s happening with Fox News?!?
    Ofc immigrants (legal) with no monetary means of supporting themselves are going to be denied. Like in any other country. Even Sweden…

    Really stupid talking point. Why are Fox News turning against the people?
    What do the globalists have on Rupert Murdock?

  • The Man

    I’ve allways been amazed by the concept of reporters interviewing eachother.

    Newsflash: We are not interested in YOU. We want you to summarise and explain whats happening in the world.

  • Veronica M

    I don’t even have health insurance. I’ll be damned if I’ll pay for someone, else’s healthcare! If they’re coming to this country, they need to pay for their own healthcare. The other day, there was a Russian woman that could barely speak English begging for money on the corner. How did she get here? How can she get here, and then not afford her own expenses to live here?! We don’t need more homeless, or poor people! It’s ridiculous.

  • The Man

    Just because all other news networks have a (stupid) leftist angle doesn’t mean Fox News have to mimic it to be *balanced*.
    Wrong is still wrong and right is still right. If everyone says 1+1=4 doesn’t meanFox News have to say 1+1=3 to be *balanced*.
    Wrong is still plain wrong.

  • Rat King

    Every other country does this. If you can't pay for healthcare you are likely to take away from society as a whole rather than add to it.

  • Gary wood

    Canada has Free Health care for anyone inside the Country . Under the Trudeau reign with a Somali Immigration Minister there are thousands of people in New York state that just cross in Quebec as a fake Refugee and get 100% Dental coverage no matter the cost , Free Health care, Housing , welfare and free education for their children .
    Liberals see the Legal immigrants as suckers for obeying the laws and being self-reliant to get the Citizenship.

  • PRINCESS SNOWWHITE

    THIS JERK CANNOT RESPECT AUTHORITY – THE PRESIDENT WAS DONE ANSWERING QUESTIONS, BUT THIS IDIOT JOURNALIST REFUSED TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTION DEMANDING TO TALK TO THE PRESIDENT WHO WAS DONE ANSWERING QUESTIONS, TOTALLY OUT OF LINE YOU DISRESPECTFUL, RUDE, REBELLIOUS JOURNALIST NEEDS A DUNCES HAT

  • Bama Girl

    Dude that harassed the President was very very rude. Not good job on you. Now Trump is the man!!!! Thank You President Trump!!!! Stay Strong 🙂

  • tgone23

    Jesus will come back. He'll come to America "illegally". Republican fake Xtians will deny him. He'll go back to dad and say, "They haven't read a word I said or follow it. They aren't ready."

  • Shapes in Planet

    We going to create a law saying that no one are immigrants when people recognizes belonging to the planet and it's life

  • ESUSAMEX

    Great! All foreigners should be required to folk over a $100, 000 each before entering the US. This payment will be returned once everyone returns home. Moreover, legal immigration should be cut in half.

  • vin 950

    I'm kind of shocked that this wasn't already a thing… why on earth would we be giving visas to people who are going to come here and leech off taxpayers?

  • tgone23

    I was eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame. I was a father to the needy, and I championed the cause of the stranger. I broke the fangs of the unrighteous, and made them drop their prey from their teeth.

  • Allen Coniglio

    I have lived in a number of foreign countries and none of those countries would allow me to stay more than a few days without showing proof of health insurance. Why do these ignorant news people not know this? Their lack of knowledge about everything is appalling. God bless President Trump.

  • Kathy Bainbridge

    You we're not professional! You should have done what the President told you. You had your own agenda! Shame on you!

  • Jane Queen

    Drive down an l.a. street and check out the veterans sleeping on the street. Lets get shelter for our own citizens first. The dnc is so annoying.

  • annonymous commentor

    If he is fair i don't think he would be treated like that. President Trump is followers of Newton's 3rd law.

  • Jess Webb

    President Trump 2Q2Q Thank You For Protecting America’s Health Care Cost By requiring Immigrants Too Cover There Own Health Care And Not Costing Tax Payers BILLIONS 🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️💡💡🇺🇸🇺🇸🌽🌽🌽

  • ohwhatelse

    We USED TO deny entry to immigrants who didn't have 1. a place to live,
    2. a job to provide FOR YOURSELF,
    3. I believe they were to assimilate into American culture, NOT DEMAND THAT WE TAKE DOWN OUR CHRISTMAS DECO, FLAGS, & ANYTHING ELSE THAT OFFENDS THEM! That they provide THEIR OWN health care coverage is a VERY VALID FORM OF "PROVIDING FOR THEMSELVES!" "I" DO NOT find fault with that in the least! DON'T come here for freebies! They have plumb run out! Zip. Zilch. Nada.
    Thank you, President Trump!

  • CesarConH

    Americans eat because of illegal immigrants
    Illegal immigrants contribute more than these FoxCunts are willing to admit to. This is just cruel

  • Sir Kerb

    Foxnews is dead to me now they've gone over to the other side – FAKE NEWS, like CNN! Boycott them – watch OANN – One American News network now – MAGA Trump!!

  • Slim Morden

    Canada passed a law requiring one who sponsored an immigrant must repay any state benefits they claimed in the first 5 years. Sure slowed down sponsoring relative with the promise of free money.

  • John Kellett

    Well there are 65% of Americans who can't afford this countries Health Care also, so why should we "THE TAX PAYERS" pay for Immigrants to have "FREE HOUSING, FREE HEALTH CARE, FREE EDUCATION, CASH ASSISTANCE, ETC. ETC.

  • Paul Krueger

    This is just one more way to distract people from asking the real question. Why is american healthcare so expensive and why don't republicans have any plan at all. You can criticise the democrats plans, but you can't criticize republicans because they are upfront about not caring.

  • greta Stan

    I personally know a Korean family who claims benefits for their mother who is in papers 99 yo and is not living in USA. perhaps she is past died somewhere in S Korea!

  • Thelegend899

    Another President Trump administration policy that will wind up tied up through the federal court system and eventually being struck down due to any number of unconstitutional precedents.

  • Eva Gabor

    When I applied for senior visa in Australia, to stay temporarily with my daughter and her family, it was conditioned I am self sufficient and prove I have sufficient medical insurance.
    And no, he wasn't dilligent, proffesional. He was confrontational and embarrasing. You dont wash dirty laundry , in front of president of other country, who has nothing to do with issue.

  • kjv _bandit

    Remember that movie and long time ago where the news announcer got on TV and said. "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!". Could this be what the president is trying to say nicely 🤗

  • Amelia Moore

    What drives people into insolvency is not being able to recapture loss as a citizen in this economy. Even at the micro level.

  • Nora Dawn

    Rudest reporter Jeff Mason, Thought that was PATHETIC that he would not accept an answer when given it. HE wanted a different answer and was pushing for it. Totally hate how they are so puffed up in themselves that they can NOT see how THEY are the ones being disrespectful and totally off base.

    "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    To spread the light of liberty world-wide for every land.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

  • edward smith

    Obama always said we should adopt other countries laws as it pertains to gun laws. How about we adopt other countries laws like Australia where you need to prove you can take care of yourself before entering, no one should be allowed to enter and expect welfare right off the get go

  • Sara Gomer

    And the problem with this is what? Those complaining should go look up what is required to obtain residence status in other countries, most don't provide a free ride and neither should the US.
