Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer is urging President Donald Trump to provide more American health care to illegal migrants.
Schumer’s demand comes just after Trump’s deputies quietly agreed September 2 to allow at least 1,000 illegals to stay in the United States so they can receive expensive health care for a variety of lethal, enduring and debilitating diseases. But the Labor Day announcement also suggested officials would try to reduce the future approvals of “deferred action” for sick foreigners.
“This half measure by the Trump administration isn’t enough,” Schumer responded by tweet. “The Trump administration must pledge to continue this critical protection for children and families being treated for serious illnesses like cancer, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis,’ he tweeted.

Schumer’s demand may be intended as a gift to Joe Biden, who has been using the issue to spike support among the pro-migration progressives who prefer to blur the distinctions between Americans and foreigners:
The agencies “are giving notice to these families that they’ve got to unplug their kids and get them out of hospitals and take them out of America,” Biden told a campaign event in Rock Hill., S.C. He continued:
We’re 300,000,000-plus people and the idea that we can’t tolerate saving the lives — or trying to help save the lives — of hundreds of children in deep need is just wrong. It is wrong. It has to stop. Like so many others have said, cruelty is the point here. It is their only point, It all the have to run on — fear, anger, division, cruelty. So this can’t just be a [presidential] campaign about Donald Trump, it has to become a movement.
