Every time you think you you’ve seen every mind-blowingly stupid article possible, another one comes along.
As in Sunday’s New York Times: “The Health Toll of Immigration.”
From the headline, you might think it’s about the cost to the nation’s emergency rooms, taking care of illegal immigrants – like those giving birth to new citizens – who have no money, no insurance and can’t be turned away.
Or local school districts, swelling with the children of illegal immigrants, that have to pay nurses and support staff to care for them?
Or county jails and state and federal prisons, where taxpayers foot the bill for the health care of immigrants in custody? Nope.
It’s about how unhealthy the American lifestyle is, and the price immigrants pay to leave their homeland paradise.
This is how the story starts:
“Becoming an American can be bad for your health.”
Research on immigrants, it continues, “has shown that the longer they live in this country, the worse their rates of heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes,” the story explains.
Turns out, there’s too much food here (supersize meals cause obesity and diabetes), too many jobs (working parents don’t have time to cook but do have the money to eat out), and not enough physical exertion (people drive cars instead of walking.)
And to think these people were tricked into leaving home, where three crusts of bread and a plate of dry beans makes up your recommended daily allowance … of crusty bread and dry beans.
“All the things we tell people to do from a clinical perspective today — a lot of fiber and less meat — were exactly the lifestyle habits that immigrants were normally keeping,” a University of New Mexico professor told the Times.
Yet somehow, despite the horror of heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes, generation upon generation – huddled masses in their millions – have deluded themselves into thinking that becoming an American might not be so bad.
That delusion is why 10 million people became legal residents here between 2002 and 2012, according to the Department of Homeland Security’s Yearbook of Immigration Statistics.
And it’s why the illegal population stands at 11.5 million or more.
You’d think the anti-smoking, health-fanatic, immigrant-championing bunch at The New York Times would be demanding we fence them all out.
For their own good.
