(RightIsRight.co) – In a move that has angered many United States military veterans, Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security plans to remove much-needed healthcare from American veterans currently treated by Veterans Affairs and shift those services to illegal aliens who’ve crossed into the United States from Mexico?
According to Breitbart in “Biden’s DHS Confirms Plans to Siphon Healthcare Services Away from Veterans to Illegal Aliens at Border“:
“During a hearing before the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas confirmed to Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-IA) that the Biden administration is in talks with VA officials to potentially transfer doctors and nurses to the southern border to treat illegal aliens arriving every day in record-breaking numbers.” [emphasis added]
Here is the specific give and take between Hinson and Mayorkas.
Rep. Hinson: “Is the department planning to reallocate resources, doctors and nurses, from our VA system intended to care for our veterans to illegal immigrants at our southern border?”
Mayorkas: “[T]he resources that the medical personnel from the Veterans Administration would allocate to this effort is under the judgment of the secretary of Veterans Affairs, who prioritizes the interests of veterans above all others for very noble and correct.”
Asked by Hinson if there have been discussions about moving the healthcare services in question, Mayorkas responded, “I have not personally, but of course, our teams, our personnel have. and I’d be very pleased to follow up with you.”
While Mayorkas tried first to spin his response, he did acknowledge that the planning is underway.
In fact, based on his own investigation, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) recently wrote in a letter to Mayorkas, “In the words of one [Customs and Border Protection] official, ‘We’re going to take medical services away from people that really deserve that, who went to combat … to give free medical attention to illegal migrants.”
