Obamacare navigators enrolling at Mexican consulates?

A few days ago, we posted a picture of the back of a van down here in South Florida that was advertising for Obamacare in Spanish. Well, now we know why the van was out soliciting.

According to Kerry Picket in Breitbart.com, ” The Obama administration has been helping to facilitate a series of events nationwide at Mexican Consulate offices to enroll people in Obamacare – and a key activist says the efforts are “our responsibility” regardless of citizenship.”

“Whether they’re Mexican nationals or whether they’re United States citizens or whether they’re in transition– and if they’re there it is our responsibility within all of America to educate on the Affordable Care Act,” Enroll America Field Organizer Jose Medrano told Breitbart News on Wednesday.

So, the inquisitive mind has to wonder, how many of these millions of Obamacare signups are illegal immigrants?

As Ms. Picket points out, “Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), undocumented immigrants aren’t supposed to be receiving government-run health benefits or subsidized coverage. However, President Barack Obama told Latinos in early March that the Healthcare.gov website would not be used to find out about an individual’s immigration status. None of the information that is provided in order for you to obtain health insurance is in any way transferred to immigration services,” he said.

Once again, Americans get duped, because basically the President has told the Hispanic community — and all others — you can find amnesty within my Obamacare.

“Promoting Obamacare at a Mexican consulate raises three major policy concerns,” said Stephen Miller, a spokesman for top immigration hawk Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL): “One, the possibility that illegal immigrants could fraudulently access federal subsidies; two, that such promotions provide a financial inducement to unlawfully enter the U.S. (or overstay a visa) by offering households headed by illegal immigrants federal subsidies through their legal relatives or dependents; and three, that these activities widen an existing flaw in our legal admissions process by continuing to subvert the principle that those seeking to lawfully enter the US should be financially self-sufficient,” Miller said.

But this is nothing new. Mexican Consulates have been used previously to advance USDA assistance programs like food stamps to Mexican nationals, The Daily Caller reported in July of 2012. Mexico promoted the program to 50 of its consular offices in the U.S. Medrano, however, said the Mexican Consulate is a trusted source of information for Latinos, who use “those who they relied on for good information” in the past.

Why does a US citizen need to trust the consulate of a foreign nation as a source of information? If anything, I’m quite sure those American citizens of Hispanic heritage could just tune into Univision. Something here smells and methinks the stench emanates from the desire to import more Democrat votes and more slaves to government handouts.

If we are to solve the problem of illegal immigration, one of the first steps is to cancel taxpayer-funded benefits to those who are here illegally. We are a nation in debt to the tune of $17.4 trillion and our unfunded liabilities are close to $100 trillion.

So what does the Obama administration do? Advertise food stamp and Obamacare enrollment south of the border in foreign consulates — more fundamental transformation.

  1. barry advertises food stamps in Mexico, the invade us getting food stamps after they get here, they then feel entitled to ebt cards. In California they get drivers licences. Why? so that when they are entitled to vote the vote for Democrats.
    Soon enough they will not have to be citizens to vote. Bet on it.

  2. Hmmmmmmmmm! This van should have English on the outside, because in the Constitution Of The State Of Florida, ARTICLE II, SECTION 9. English is the official language of Florida. So, why is a van driving around with Spanish instead of English only? Why is Florida printing in Spanish instead of English only? Why is the Governor of Florida allowing illegals into our state? I think this is questions for the people of any state should be asking and demanding answers. As usual, the obama administration tells a lie to cover their as* and we the taxpayers are screwed again. The illegals are sucking “Our Country” dry in every way and for some reason the Elected Officials don’t get that “We the People” are fed up. Sooner rather than later the tax dollars are going to decrease or just go away and then who is going to pay for everything this administration keeps throwing away?

  3. Hey Alan, the bigger question is, why is the Obama Administration doing this at all. The Affordable Care Act states citizenship is a factor in eligibility…read the damn law.

  4. Shame no one in Congress will call the invasion, an invasion.. A few migrants might have been an immigration issue.. somewhere over 11,000,000 is an invasion..

    Congress and to some degree the President have the authority to play with immigration law, they can use that to cover their butt’s for year’s of not enforcing the law..

    The Constitution is pretty specific about invasion- The have to protect the states, aiding an invasion becomes treason

  5. The authority of the Attorney General is a real
    threat to the security and stability of the whole nation! Both he and the
    President are trying one power grab after the other, and where will they stop?!
    It’s not just one issue, but many actions of the Executive Branch at issue!
    Holder’s actions are in effect nullifying our very laws, and we have a crisis!
    As I understand it, impeachment proceedings begin in the House and end in the
    Senate. Perhaps with its independent power to set
    up impeachment proceedings, the House of Representatives could turn to a
    military authority to remove Holder and place him in custody until charges
    against him could be settled. Eric Holder’s actions have highlighted the
    defects of the job description of the office of Attorney General of the United
    States, illustrating that this office as it now exists can be used as a
    dangerous weapon of despotic, tyrannical power! Congress created the office of
    United States Attorney General, and Congress can eliminate this position
    entirely and reestablish it with a position that is non-partisan, and appointed
    nominated by Congress only and under Congressional authority, so that it will
    not be possible, as it is now, for there to be an Attorney General of the
    Untied States who is able to get away with issuing mandates, welding power of
    illegal partisan whims and follies! Who prosecutes the Attorney General? This
    country has never seen such corruption before! What resources do we have
    against the tyranny of this office?! We have never had this situation before,
    so there is no precedent for what kind of action can be taken Perhaps the House
    could, to implement impeachment proceedings act to appoint some temporary or
    interim office to replace the position of Attorney General which is accountable
    to Congress. Some action must be taken as it is an immediate crisis since the
    current active office of Attorney General of the United States is now being
    used to undermine the laws of the country itself!

    • One must wonder that solutions have always been available. One wonders why are solutions not implemented, now? At such a time as this? I share in your concern. (yeah im reading through some of your stuff , not too many people on here worth reading up on)

  6. Doesn’t all of this prove that Obama and Holder are enemies of the United States? Can they not be thrown out? Who is watching the store?

  7. If an illegal immigrant or any person with low income, buys the bronze plan, if they should get very ill or need surgery, they will have to pay a great deal out of pocket. This ACA is not for the poor at all. How does this fit in with Obama’s equal income distribution. With ACA you get what you can afford, so he is not doing the poor any good and it is not equal health distribution.

  8. You and i pay through our noses for this program; with poor coverage and huge deductibles; but those with very low income pay nothing and get coverage without the deductible. I don’t understand how or why, but I personally know a few people that get all medical expenses paid for, free of charge. The sign on the van says that it is free, and apparently that part, at least, is true.
