This is funny btw. First you were trying to refute the author's claim because I supposedly got it from some progressive blog! OMG! Now you are actually trying to refute the author's claim with his own study.

Is this the study where he was initially trying to use it for his own agenda?

It's also funny because, if I'm understanding what he's quoted correctly (I haven't read the study) the author is suggesting loosening legal immigration policy so we can have a greater benefit.

More importantly, however, not every illegal immigrant uses the ER on a regular basis.
When they aren't taken up valuable space in the ER they are crowding out poorer Americans by taking up space in the free clinics.

A job they shouldn't even be working if they are here illegally.

Maybe next time they should load the patient into an ambulance, drive to the border, and drop them off.

Dehumanize? How do you come up with this crap? Its simply returning them to their own country. I find it dehumanizing that too many poor, uninsured AMERICANS can't receive the same care in our hospitals as these illegals do.

What? They don't have hospitals in Mexico? Or do they come here instead because in Mexico they would have to PAY for health care?
