How Many of the 46.3 Million Uninsured are Immigrants?

Monday, 26 April 2010 14:43
CEPR has just posted our second graphic describing the uninsured in the United States. The first graphic emphasized that in the most recent available data (2008), the large majority (38.3 million) of the 46.3 million uninsured are adults age 18 to 64. Of these, more than half (23.1 million) are working, most (14.7 million) full-time, all year long.

Today's graphic looks at how many of the uninsured are immigrants. According to the most recent data, almost three-fourths (34.0 million) of the uninsured were born in the United States. Of the 12.3 million immigrants without health insurance, more than half (6.3 million) are employed, and about 900,000 are children.

Specious arguments

The corporate media not made a big enough issue about this shameful affair, full time working Americans, 23 million with no medical insurance and had we done what the Republicans in the Senate had proposed we would have gone back to the drawing board and still be working on healthcare reform. It's horrible how many Americans say they love America but truly dislike Americans.
