President Biden Refers to Illegals as ‘Model Citizens’

President Joe Biden claimed illegal aliens, eligible for former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), “model citizens” during a Cinco de Mayo event at the White House this week.

“The first bill I introduced was about DACA, to make sure that they have a direct path to citizenship – we created [DACA] 12 years ago,” Biden said about the program.

“It’s given 800,000 DREAMers a chance to go to work and school, contribute their immense talents in America. But more than a third of DREAMers couldn’t get health insurance. It’s wrong. And this rule changes all that. DREAMers can now get health insurance, as they deserve,” the president continued.

“My first day in office, as I said, I sent a comprehensive immigration reform bill to Congress. It expands legal paths for entries for families and employers. It includes pathways to citizenship for DREAMers in the only country that they ever called home.”

In April 2023, American Faith reported that American citizens would subsidize billions of dollars for Biden’s Affordable Care Act benefits for illegal immigrants enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The cost of Biden’s plan to open Obamacare and Medicaid rolls to thousands of DACA members would cost taxpayers roughly $4,600 per illegal immigrant.

According to the Migration Policy Institute, 589,660 illegal immigrants take part in DACA.

American taxpayers may ultimately be paying closer to $2.8 billion every year if Biden’s push for Obamacare and Medicaid for those enrolled in DACA is successful.

According to Christ Conover, formerly with the Center for Health Policy and Inequalities Research at Duke University, Americans already pay over $18 billion in healthcare for illegal immigrants living in the US.

California has been the first and only state in the U.S. to provide free healthcare to illegal residents.

While the measure was signed in 2022, the plan is set to begin in 2024, costing Californians over $2 billion annually.

At the time, California Governor Gavin Newsom tweeted, “This is what being ‘pro-life’ ACTUALLY looks like.”
