Masselli to Gov. Malloy: CHC will Help Illegal Immigrants

Click to enlarge
On July 25th Community Health Center CEO Mark Masselli of Middletown penned an open letter to Governor Dannel Malloy pledging the CHC's  publically funded  resources to help illegal alien children  in the recent immigration crisis at the southern border. The CHC is a non profit which is funded by state grants ie tax payer money. Normally the CHC provides health care citizens those who cannot afford it and who are uninsured.
 Democratic Gov. Malloy of Connecticut, and Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado said no to President Obama's request to house illegal aliens in their respective states citing "inadequate resources." Gov. Hickenlooper, a Wesleyan University graduate, was a co-founder along side Mark Masselli of the Community Health Center in 1972. Masselli was treasurer of Hickenlooper's last campaign for govenor. Hickenlooper, an advocate of the Affordable Health Care Act, is according to a January 2014 article in the Huffington Post, a rumored candidate for the 2016 Presidential race.  Hickenlooper shared a beer with Obama during a campaign fundraiser in Colorado last month; about a week before the border crisis made national headlines. Despite the jovial elbow rubbing; Hickenlooper declined the POTUS's request to host illegals.

1. The CHC receives many thousands in grants and government funding. Public tax money funds the CHC & Masselli has pledged its resources, to helping the illegal aliens.

2. Masselli, nor Malloy, nor Hickenlooper, nor Mayor Drew, nor Rep. Matt Lesser all progressive liberal democrats, & who have all claimed that it is our duty to care for those entering the country illegally, have offered to house, feed, educate, employ, or fund any of the latter out of their own pockets.

3. There is a cost to all services, who's money is it when it comes from the tax payer?

Dear Governor Malloy,
We are facing a humanitarian crisis in America with the influx of children fleeing 
violence in their native countries. As a nation, our most immediate concern must be 
to properly care for these children. We applaud your efforts as Governor to find

adequate housing for these children. We know that beyond housing you are concerned about their other needs like health care and we are interested in helping address this part of the issue.For over forty years, CHC has provided primary care to underserved populations, regardless of their immigration status. In addition to our offices across the state, from Stamford to Groton and up to Enfield, we provide medical, dental and behavioral health services in over 200 locations to patients wherever they are, from our school based health centers to shelters.We are sure that other health care organizations around the state will also be eager to help and we would be happy to assist with coordination efforts.Please let us know if you intend to establish an interdisciplinary team to address these issues. We would be glad to participate.Peace and Health.Mark MasselliPresident/CEO
