Most Illegals if not ALL give fake names and addresses. How do you bill some knocked up Illegal for a birth if they have no id.

Hi, my name is Bill Roberts (in Spanish usually). What? You are a pregnant woman. Ya so. Ok, if you say so. The tax payers are picking up the tab we don't want to inconvenience a pregnant woman at your "time" you know.

How come you and your Husband can't speak English, BIll? I don't see a 12345 First Av in the data base.

Most immigrant patients have jobs and pay taxes, through paycheck deductions or property taxes included in their rent, administrators at the Dallas and Fort Worth hospitals said. At both institutions, they have a better record of paying their bills than low-income Americans do, the administrators said.
Though precise data is unavailable, sources in Dallas currently estimate the figure for the babies of illegal aliens alone exceeds 20,000. Interviews with the mothers who are illegal aliens confirm that their decision to come to the U.S. to deliver their babies were conscious and required significant planning and preparation. It goes without saying that the cost, all born by taxpayers, is substantial. In 2004, according to the article, the cost was $70.7 million.
