What about Elmhurst Hospital, Senator Schumer and Senator Gillebrand?

Queens Chronicle 

Four Queens hospitals that have been designated as “hot spot” care providers during the COVID-19 crisis will begin receiving more than $21.8 million combined from the federal government to offset unreimbursed expenses or lost revenue due to the pandemic.

The funding is part of more than $680 million allocated to 86 New York State hospitals in a new $10 billion relief package. U.S. Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said in a joint press release on Saturday that the money is in addition to $4.3 billion secured for frontline hospitals in April; and that the new funding should begin this week.

Flushing Hospital Medical Center is in line for $11,265,905. St. John’s Episcopal Hospital in Far Rockaway will receive $8,700,257. Jamaica Hospital Medical Center qualifies for $1,128,335. NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens in Jamaica will receive $760,265.

Protest wealth inequality for Elmhurst Hospital ?
All told, American tax payers like me subsidize health care for illegal immigrants to the tune of $18.5 billion a year . Is that enough ? No ?
Better call in the "Riot Moms" and start a "Protest" !

Last anon:

Illegal immigrants or not, Elmhurst did get the most patients, and with another outbreak certain to come it will wind up being the epicenter again because of the high population and the belated effect from the decade long closing of St. Johns Hospital.

Riddle me this JQ !
How many more Illegal Immigrants can NYC and it's tax payers handle ?

How much more can we pay for 421a and untaxed capital gains?

I'm not advocating for them, the profligate waste is all around. Besides these kings of capitalism sure don't mind illegal immigrants existence when they need their seamless delivered in 5 minutes.

JQ 421a is not right but come on there are bigger things to address.
Barak Hussein during 8 long lawless years of his rule with just "pen & phone", was able to re-settle into our homeland over 1 Million of so called "refugees" and did it "legally" at U.S. taxpayers' expense.
And only due to President Trump's orders to stop it, that invasion was cut, somewhat, but Fed Gov. still continued Muslims intake at about 50,000 persons (mainly young men!) per year, while, at least, Trump's immediate in 2017 Travel Ban of 8 major Muslim terrorist hotbed countries was imposed.
As we see insane Democrats are outraged, as they are bought by Islamic sheikhs and Iranian Mullahs are their best friends, as they proved many times, by attacking President Trump, who puts America First.
