Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) blasted President Biden and his administration for failing to lead amid crisis after crisis. First, Biden failed at the border, allowing record numbers of migrants to swarm the border. Now, Biden’s disappointed allies in Afghanistan with his hasty withdrawal. Biggs appeared on the Sara Carter Show Friday to discuss Biden’s failures at length.

Just this July, over 200,000 migrants entered the country via the southern border. As a result, as many as 31 border patrol agents have died of COVID-19-related illnesses, according to Biggs. So, the Arizona lawmaker is trying to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Yet, “Republicans that won’t sign on to impeach Secretary Mayorkas,” Biggs told host Sara Carter. “What he has done is violated the law. He’s violated the Constitution. He’s violated his oath of office.” Biggs claims that many are too afraid to go against Speaker Nancy Pelosi, so they let Mayorkas off the hook.

But Biggs’ calls for resignation don’t stop with Mayorkas. “Biden should resign, Harris should resign,” Biggs said. “The Secretary of Defense, that guy is such such a weenie he needs to go, he definitely needs to go.”

Meanwhile, Biden’s White House focuses on the inconsequential. “This administration is more interested in weight and waving the gay pride flag about the US Embassy in Kabul, and making sure that everybody’s masked up, than they are about our enemies, about inflation,” Biggs said.

CA to provide all low-income illegal immigrants health care at a cost of ‘$2.7 billion a year’

On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $307.9 billion operating budget “that pledges to make all low-income adults eligible for the state’s Medicaid program by 2024 regardless of their immigration status” reports the Associated Press.

The guarantee of free health care for low-income immigrants here illegally, is a “move that will provide coverage for an additional 764,000 people at an eventual cost of about $2.7 billion a year” adds the AP.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care nonprofit, people living in the country illegally in 2020 accounted for roughly 7% of the population nationwide, or about 22.1 million people. The border crisis and number of migrants entering the United States illegally has skyrocketed to historic levels since 2020 when President Joe Biden took office.

Medicaid nationwide is the current combination of federal and state governments assisting Americans and low-income adults and children to receive free health care, but the federal government does not cover those living here illegally.

“Some states, including California, have used their own tax dollars to cover a portion of health care expenses for some low-income immigrants” reports the AP. “Now, California wants to be the first to do that for everyone.”

“This will represent the biggest expansion of coverage in the nation since the start of the Affordable Care Act in 2014,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a statewide consumer health care advocacy group. “In California we recognize (that) everybody benefits when everyone is covered.”

While 92% of Californians currently have some form of health insurance, “that will change once this budget is fully implemented, as adults living in the country illegally make up one of the largest groups of people without insurance in the state” the AP concludes.
