An interesting article from www.numbersusa.com about subsidies that illegal immigrants received. This follows this post about Governor Chris Christie. This follows this post about Pope Francis and immigration. Remember, “Amnesty” means ANY non-enforcement of existing immigration laws! This follows this comment and this post about how to Report Illegal Immigrants! Also, you can read two very interesting books HERE.

A new Senate report found that around 500,000 illegal aliens received
up to $750 million in Obamacare subsides as of June 2015 despite the
law specifically excluding them from the subsidies.
The report was compiled by the Senate Homeland Security and
Governmental Affairs Committee and was based on a review launched by the
committee Chairman, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.). The report said that,
“the administration awarded approximately $750 million in tax credits on
behalf of individuals who were later determined to be ineligible
because they failed to verify their citizenship, status as a national,
or legal presence.”
According to The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
spokesman, Aaron Albright, “lack of verification does not mean an
individual is ineligible for financial assistance, but only that a
Marketplace did not receive sufficient information to verify eligibility
in the time period outlined in the law.”
The federal government still grants the subsidies on a “temporary
basis” to those who cannot verify their citizenship in the time period
allowed. Their credits are still paid in advance to the insurers. If the
recipient is still unable to verify their immigration status, then
funding and coverage is suspended and the IRS is supposed to receive
overpayments back from the individuals that were wrongly covered.
The report criticized this “pay and chase” method and predicted that the IRS would be “unable to fully recoup the funds.”
