This is the type of immigrant we DON'T want!

Florida doctor charged with $26M in Medicaid, Medicare fraud
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Federal prosecutors alleged a Florida doctor defrauded Medicaid, Medicare
and other insurance providers to the tune of $26 million by billing them for nonexistent procedures.

Prosecutors with the Northern District of Florida allege Dr. Moses D. Degraft-Johnson submitted a series of false claims and pocketed the money between September 2015 and February 2020, in some cases claiming to have performed the procedures in his office while actually traveling to locations such as Spain, Ghana and the U.K., ABC News reports.
They alleged Degraft-Johnson, a naturalized American citizen, had told officials he was building toward an “ultimate long-term professional goal” of becoming president of Ghana and was “hard at work using the proceeds of fraud in the United States to establish an empire in a foreign country."

“He used his access to the hospital’s daily census to poach patients for his scheme to defraud, instructing his staff to cold call patients from the hospital so that he could use their presence to fraudulently bill health care programs,” prosecutors said in court documents.

2. Absolutely, all healthcare fraudsters belong in prison

for a very long time until they are too old and feeble to commit more fraud.
