Almost half of uninsured in America illegal aliens

Poverty is down and median income is up, according to just released census figures 2006, Current Population Survey. (pdf) Reporting: Molly Henneberg, Fox News Channel.

2006: number of uninsured in America 47 million people, or 15.8% of the population.2005: number of uninsured in America 44.8 million people, or 15.3% of the population.

Joseph Antos, American Enterprise Institute, looks inside the numbers, because they are very misleading.

Broken down by legal vs. illegal uninsured who are NOT U.S. CITIZENS IS 45% of the 47 million.Broken down by age, 18 – 24 years old – 29.3% of the 47 million.

25 – 35 years old – 26.9% of the 47 million.

Broken down by salary, $75,000 or more per year – 8.5% of the 47 million.

Did you get that? Almost half of the uninsured in America are ILLEGAL ALIENS. Think what a financial break to our hospitals and doctors it would be, if the illegals were not here. Just a thought.

Also if you do the math 45% (illegal aliens) of 47 million is over 20 million illegal aliens inside the United States. Fact.

Mr. Antos is widely quoted for this “45% of the uninsured are illegal aliens” bit, but I sure can’t find anything other than second-hand attributions.

Can anybody provide the source?

Okay upon further review I think you are wrong. I’m not happy about it because living in Arizona. . .I know there are more than 12 million in this country.

Here is why you may be wrong. . .the survey lists 12.6 million foreign people in poverty. Of that 12 million 10 million are “NOT A CITIZEN”. Now does that mean illegal? Or does that mean they have visa’s and just haven’t been naturalized yet? I suspect the latter.

What we need is a total of Foreign born nationals who are holding visa’s to have an idea about illegals. BTW. . .unless I read it wrong, I think there are 39 million (not citizens) who answered the census. Just doesn’t mean they are illegal.
