REASON: Obama SLASHES Anti-Terror Budget Amid ISIS Threat!!

( Observer ) – New York City officials today ripped into President Barack Obama’s proposed budget cuts to anti-terrorism programs—and Mayor Bill de Blasio said he’d personally appeal to the president to reconsider.

“I’m certainly going to let the president know that we care deeply in New York and we need this money to be restored,” Mr. de Blasio said at a One Police Plaza press conference. “The common sense thing to do here is to recognize that we are the number one terror target, and we need this support.”

The budget proposal calls for cutting the funding for the Urban Area Security Initiative, which helps prevent or respond to terror events, from $600 to $330 million—a cut U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer said the president’s administration seemed to have no acceptable explanation for over the last several days.

“They’ve been very good, but not here. Not here,” Mr. Schumer said of the administration’s anti-terror efforts. “This is a huge mistake, and I am here to pledge to the mayor and even more importantly to our men and woman who are in the police, fire and other departments, and to the citizens of New York, these cuts will not stand.”

Mr. de Blasio and Mr. Schumer, both Democrats like Mr. Obama, were joined by Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, Fire Commissioner Dan Nigro, and Emergency Management Commissioner Joe Esposito—all of whom said Mr. Obama’s proposal would mean severe cuts to their efforts to keep New Yorkers safe at a time when the city is on alert for lone wolf, Islamic State inspired attacks like the ones in San Bernardino.

“It seems to me that it’s indefensible for the federal government at this time to be proposing not only cuts but extraordinary cuts in monies allocated for homeland security, home town security,” Mr. Bratton said.

Last year, the city received $180 million in the anti-terror funding, but under the new budget, would receive just $90 million, Mr. Bratton said. “A $90 million cut is unconscionable.”

Mr. Bratton said protecting the city, a major terror target, need to be a shared “responsibility”—and that the federal  money has helped pay for nearly 9,000 cameras, thousands of license plate scanners, and other security features that he and Mr. de Blasio argued have helped the NYPD foil terror plots since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

Mr. Nigro spoke from a more emotional perspective—recalling how he and Mr. Esposito, then with the NYPD, had both responded to the World Trade Center, and were lucky to survive when so many of their colleagues did not.

“Fifteen years ago, just a few minutes away from where we are right now, more than 400 first responders died defending our country,” Mr. Nigro said. “The loss of this funding would be quite crippling to all first responders, to all New Yorkers and to all Americans. It’s not just important. It’s a necessity.”

Without the federal funding, Mr. Esposito said he thought the Office of Emergency Management would “almost close our doors.”

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
