Constitutional Rights: Healthcare

September 12, 2019


DONALD J. TRUMP IS CALLING FOR A TOTAL AND COMPLETE SHUTDOWN OF MUSLIMS ENTERING THE UNITED STATES UNTIL OUR COUNTRY’S REPRESENTATIVES CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON. WE HAVE NO CHOICE. WE HAVE NO CHOICE. Chris: THAT WAS DONALD TRUMP WHEN HE MADE HIS INITIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT BANNING MUSLIMS FROM ENTERING OUR NATION. HE LATER BACKED OFF, MUSLIMS THAT ARE NOT U.S. CITIZENS SHOULD BE BANNED FROM OUR NATION. THIS LEADS ME TO A RECENT POLL BY FOX NEWS WHEN PEOPLE WERE ASKED, DO YOU FAVOR OR OPPOSE TRAILER — TEMPORARILY BANNING MUSLIMS WHO ARE NOT U.S. CITIZENS FROM ENTERING UNITED STATES UNTIL OFFICIALS CAN IDENTIFY THOSE COMING HERE TO CAUSE THE COUNTRY HARM? DONALD TRUMP’S NAME IS NOT INVOKED IN THE QUESTION. WHEN IT’S NOT, 55% OF AMERICANS FAVOR BANNING NON-U.S. CITY MUSLIMS FROM ENTERING OUR BORDERS. HERE’S WHAT’S REALLY STUNNING FROM THIS POLL. WHEN DEMOCRATS WERE ASKED THE EXACT SAME QUESTION, WHEN YOU DIDN’T INVOKE DONALD TRUMP’S NAME, 45% OF THE DEMOCRATS ALSO FAVOR BANNING NON-U.S. CITIZEN MUSLIMS BUT IF TRUMP’S NAME WAS INVOKED, ONLY 25% OF THOSE DEMOCRATS SUPPORT IT. CLEARLY THE FEAR PEOPLE ARE FEELING IS GROWING ACROSS BOTH POLITICAL SPECTRUMS AND SHOWS AS LONG AS TRUMP’S NAME IS NOT INVOKED, PEOPLE ARE SAYING, YEAH, THIS IS PROBABLY A PRETTY GOOD IDEA. MANY PEOPLE ARE QUESTIONING THE CONSTITUTIONALITY. THE ACT OF 1952 GIVE BOTH THE PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS A LOT OF POWER TO KEEP PEOPLE OUT OF OUR COUNTRY FOR ANY REASON THEY DEEM NECESSARY. SO WITH US NOW TO DISCUSS THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THIS AND THE IMPACT THIS CAN HAVE ON OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IS THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS, DR. JANE. YOUR THOUGHTS ON IS WHAT MR. TRUMP SAID CONSTITUTIONAL OR NOT. WELL, THERE’S NOTHING IN THECUTION THAT GIVES NON-CITIZENS ANY RIGHT WHATSOEVER. THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES IN OUR HISTORY WHEN WE DIDN’T LET ANYBODY IN COUNTRY. AT THE PRESENT TIME, OBAMA IS KEEPING OUT CHRISTIANS, EVEN THEY’RE BEING CLEARLY PERSECUTED AND NO ONE’S RAISING A KUL ISSUE ABOUT THAT. F.D.R. KEPT OUT JEWS. I THINK THAT WAS A HORRIBLE THING FOR HIM TO DO AND MOST GOT KILLED IN NAZI GERMANY BECAUSE OF THAT, BUT THERE WAS NO CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE ABOUT IT. IT’S SEPARATE FROM WHETHER OR NOT THECUTION PERMITS IT. Chris: DO YOU SUPPORT WHAT DONALD TRUMP IS SUGGESTING? I THINK WE REALLY NEED TO CONTROL OUR BORDERS AND TO BE CONSCIOUS OF WHO WE ARE LETTING IN THE COUNTRY, IF THEY MAY BE A THREAT TO US WHETHER FROM A HEALTH STANDPOINT OR FROM A VIOLENCE STAND., THEN WE HAVE TO HAVE A POLICY THAT WILL PROTECT OUR STIPS. NOW, YOU’RE IN ARIZONA. YOU OBVIOUSLY SEE A LOT OF IMMIGRATION SITUATION TAKING PLACE. YOU MENTIONED THE HEALTH ASPECT OF THINGS. THERE’S NOW REPORTS COMING OUT THAT SYRIAN REFUGEES ARE BRINGING FLESH-EATING DISEASES INTO TURKEY AND LEBANON, I THINK IT’S CALLED — I MAY NOT BE SAYING THAT CORRECTLY. CORRECT ME IF YOU WANT. ARE WE DOING A GOOD ENOUGH JOB TO MONITOR THE PEOPLE COMING IN FROM A HEALTH PERSPECTIVE? WELL, THE ONES WHO ARE COMING IN ILLEGALLY ARE NOT BEING SCREENED AT ALL, OF COURSE, SO THEY MAY BE BRINGING IN DRUG-RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS. KISSING BUGS EXIST HERE IN THIS COUNTRY, THAT’S PROBLEM THEN THE OTHER PROBLEM IS SOMETHING THAT HASN’T BEEN SEEN HERE FOR A LONG, LONG TIME, IT’S COMING INTO EUROPE AND THEY’RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH IT THERE EITHER. SYRIANS, UNFORTUNATELY, SEEM TO BE VERY MUCH AFFLICTED WITH THAT AND THEY’RE BRINGING INTO THE COUNTRIES WHERE THEY’RE GOING. AND, UNFORTUNATELY, MOST PHYSICIANS PROBABLY DON’T RECOGNIZE IT. THERE ISN’T ANY REALLY GOOD TREATMENT FOR IT AND IT MAY NOT BE APPARENT FOR SEVERAL MONTHS WHEN THE PERSON IS CARRYING AND IT COULD BE TRANSMITTED BY THE SAND FLY, BUT THEY DON’T HAVE THE SKIN LESIONS THAT MAKE IT APPARENT. Chris: YOU KNOW WITH, THE DOCTORS THAT YOU VISIT, THE HOSPITALS YOU GO INTO IT, WHAT’S THE IMPACT THAT YOU’RE SEEING ON EMERGENCY CARE OR HOSPITALS AS A WHOLE AS MORE AND MORE PEOPLE, UM, ARE ILLEGALLY COMING INTO THIS COUNTRY? WELL, MANY HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOMS HAVE HAD TO CLOSE, BECAUSE THE HOSPITALS SIMPLY CANNOT CARRY THE EXPENSE OF BEING REQUIRED TO TREAT FREE OF CHARGE JUST ANYBODY WHO WALKS THROUGH THE DOOR. AND IF WE LET ILLEGAL PEOPLE IN, THEY CAN GO TO EMERGENCY ROOM AND THEY WILL GET TREATED. SO THIS IS ALREADY JUST SHUT DOWN MANY HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOMS. THE WAISTING — WAITING TIMES ARE GETTING LONGER AND LONGER AND I GUESS I CITED IN MY EDITORIAL ONE CASE OF MAN WHO WAS LYING ON THE FLOOR OF OUR EMERGENCY ROOM FOR MORE THAN SEVEN HOURS BEFORE HE LEFT WITHOUT BEING SEEN. HEZ WITH COMPLAINING OF SEVERE PAIN AND HE CAME BACK TO ANOTHER HOSPITAL LATER AND HE DIED. Chris: WHAT?! NOBODY HAD CHECKED ON HIM. A SECURITY OFFICER BROUGHT HIM A BLANKET BUT NOBODY LOOKED AT HIS LEG, NOBODY CHECKED — Chris: WHERE WAS THIS? THIS WAS IN TUCSON. IT WAS ONE OF OUR OPPOSABLE — SUPPOSEDLY REALLY GOOD HOSPITALS. CERTAINLY THE HOSPITALS HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO STAFF THEMSELVES WELL ENOUGH TO TAKE CARE OF THE FLOOD OF PEOPLE THAT IS COMING IN. Chris: DR. JANE ORION THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU. Chris: STAY WITH US. WHEN WE COME BACK, WE’RE GOING TO GET TO YOUR POINTS OF VIEW. I’D LOVE TO KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS. DO YOU SUPPORT A TEMPORARY BAN OF NON-U.S. MUSLIMS OR NOT? YOU JUST SAW THAT POLL WHERE MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE
