Panel on Immigration’s Impact on Health Care Reform

WASHINGTON (August 2009) – One out of three people in the U.S. without health insurance is an immigrant (legal or illegal) or the U.S.- born child (under 18) of an immigrant. Immigrants and their children also account for one-fourth of those on Medicaid. While there has been some discussion of whether illegal immigrants should be covered by proposed government insurance plans, the enormous impact of immigration, both legal and illegal, on the health care system has generally not been acknowledged in the current debate.

The Center for Immigration Studies will hold a panel discussion to explore what effects immigration policy both current and future may have on health care reform. The panel will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 19, in the Murrow Room of the National Press Club, 14th & F streets.

Panelists will include:

Steven A. Camarota, Director of Research, Center for Immigration Studies, author of The High Cost of Cheap Labor: Illegal Immigration and the Federal Budget, and an expert in the areas of economics and demography.

Robert Rector, Senior Research Fellow, The Heritage Foundation, an authority on poverty, the U.S. welfare system, and immigration.

James R. Edwards, Jr., Fellow, Center for Immigration Studies, coauthor of The Congressional Politics of Immigration Reform, and former Communications Manager for the Healthcare Leadership Council.

Moderator: Mark Krikorian, Executive Director, Center for Immigration Studies.

The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent research institute which examines the impact of immigration on the United States


American da'wa jihad headlines:

Remember the Somali immigrant workers who walked off the job at the JBS Swift & Company meat packing plant?

" The National Center for Counterterrorism in testimony before the US Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee estimates that there are upwards of 200,000 Somalis in the US. They reside in major centers like Minneapolis, Minnesota, Columbus, Ohio and Seattle, Washington, as well as smaller communities like Greeley, Grand Island and Lexington. "

" After one year, green cards are provided for employment and ultimately US citizenship is guaranteed. "

"JBS spokesman Chandler Keys said the company has attempted to accommodate religious practices by installing foot washes in locker rooms for foot-cleansing prior to prayer and bidet-type spray devices on toilets to assist with cleansing after using the rest room. "


“The extent of radical Islamic extremism in the United States is far more pervasive than the American public realizes,” Emerson said. “It is up to the Administration to start using the term ‘radical Islam,’ as opposed to its deliberate avoidance of that term as part of a politically correct vernacular. If we can’t identify the enemy, then we have no expectation of defeating it. Radical Islamists and jihadists are the enemy as well as those American Muslim organizations that preach that the United States is the enemy of Islam and urge their followers not to cooperate with the FBI. I believe that groups like CAIR and MAS indoctrinate their followers into hating the United States and ultimately contribute to jihadist cells like the one rounded up in Raleigh.”

Islamist Groups Push Conspiracy Theories in Homegrown Terror Cases
It's all a big plot by the FBI and state prosecutors to smear Muslims, don't you know?

August 3, 2009 - by Brendan Goldman and Shireen Qudosi

“Our Koran is off limits,” said Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Los Angeles chapter. “Our youth, who they try to radicalize, are off limits. Now is the time to tell them, ‘We’re not going to let this happen anymore.’”
The above statement, taken out of context, might read like a condemnation of radical Islamists who target young American Muslims. It’s not. The “they” and “them” in the quotation above refer not to al-Qaeda, but to the FBI. That such a conflation is possible is indicative of how leaders of “mainstream” American Muslim organizations have distorted the critical issue of confronting homegrown terrorism.
Ayloush was responding to the arrest in February of Ahmadullah Sais Niazi, a naturalized American of Afghan descent who is accused of perjury, naturalization fraud, misuse of a passport obtained by fraud, and making false statements to a federal agency, including denying that he had met with Amin al-Haq, his brother-in-law and Osama bin Laden’s former security coordinator, in Pakistan in 2005.
Instead of dealing with the facts of the case, the Islamists at CAIR and the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California attacked the credibility of the state prosecutor, Assistant U.S. Attorney Deirdre Eliot, and the government’s primary witness, 46-year-old FBI informant and father of four Craig Monteilh. In their magazines and in the blogosphere, the Islamists accuse Eliot of anti-Muslim sentiments and note that Monteilh has served time in prison. The facts of the arrest itself are relegated to later paragraphs or not mentioned at all.
In Focus, CAIR’s magazine, asserts that Eliot “runs the risk of being guilty by association herself for supporting a right-wing group that has promoted anti-Islamic rhetoric on its websites.” The group the magazine is referring to is the Lincoln Club of Orange County, an organization dedicated to “limited government, free enterprise, the rule of law, and the preservation of individual liberty.” Defaming Islam, apparently, did not make the cut.
