Once again, Democrats like Kamala Harris fall silent when confronted with facts.
The California senator was shredded on Twiitter by actor James Woods when she whined about illegal immigrants not getting “critical health care.”
“This is just wrong,” Harris tweeted, linking to an article in the Los Angeles Times claiming that those who entered in to the U.S. illegally are afraid to seek medical care for fear of being deported.
Immigrant families are so afraid of being targeted by this Administration they are forgoing critical health care services. This is just wrong. https://t.co/sIAX5HBGK0

According to The Times:
Healthcare providers say President Trump’s aggressive moves against illegal immigration are posing risks to the health of many Californians, as patients cancel medical appointments or wait until the last minute to seek treatment.
Others are asking to leave public programs because they’re worried their personal information will end up with the federal government. Even more seem to be feeling anxious or depressed because of possible raids, prompting some providers to offer special training to deal with such mental health issues among immigrants.
But Woods fired back at the California Democrat, telling her what actually IS wrong.
You know who isn’t getting critical health care? Homeless American citizens and overwhelming numbers of American veterans. THAT is what is just wrong. https://t.co/4iv53yb7XB

America’s homeless as well as “overwhelming numbers” of American veterans go without proper health care everyday, but apparently for Harris and her Democratic cohorts, those who came to the U.S. illegally should be the ones getting the priority on health care.
Others on Twitter agreed with Woods, and many pointed out that Harris – like most Democrats – continues to forget one word when referring to illegal immigrants.
Kamala is lying. Illegal aliens are invited to use taxpayer funded medical services for free while Americans have to pay or have insurance.

She forgot the word “illegal” immigrant. There is a difference Kamala.

You have to wonder who is paying her & how much to completely turn her back on Americans.

what’s wrong is you wanting to hand out freebies to everyone, including illegals. Teach a man to fish verses give a man a fish. That’s the difference between conservatives and liberals

Why do we as taxpayers have to fund illegal immigrants healthcare? They are not citizens. My healthcare is an albatross around my neck with an obscene monthly premium and a $12,500 deductible while they get it free?
Where is this fair?

@KamalaHarris you keep forgetting that important little word “illegal”! Just because you don’t say it doesn’t make it different! Oh and all that FREE healthcare they are receiving, raises the cost for the rest of us.
But keep pandering to your voting block.

So basically are you saying that you are O.K. with illegal aliens using our medical system and US tax payers get stuck with the bill?? We pay for our insurance and have high deductible. It’s not fair. I know you are aware that when an illegal goes to a hospital they do not pay.

What is wrong is that you worry about illegal immigrants, but don’t blink at the homeless in California. If illegal immigrants want healthcare, they should have stayed in their own country.
