Actually, it's very simple.

1. The gubmint reaches into the pocket of the average US citizen
2. They take out a bunch of money
3. They use some of that money to pay for the free hospital care illegals receive

The $92 million that was sent to AZ could have been used to help US citizens with health care bills. If our gov. had done it's job and kept the illegals out.

Also keep in mind many hospitals are now going bankrupt and closing at least in part due to the vast number of illegals they're treating.

I have to admit though, it's a good deal if you can get it. Just show up at a hospital, get free treatment, and simply never pay your hospital or doctor bill. No wonder they can do so well on eight to ten bucks an hour.

Plus their rent is only about $100 per month or less when so many live together, violating occupancy laws. (God help the neighbors).

It is not fair to the citizens of this country. Why is it that Mexicans expect us to take care of them?

They mean you and I paid $92 million as we are the government. Yet another reason that illegals must go...

I read an article this weekend regarding the San Diego fires. 11 of the 15 people that were admitted to the San Diego burn ward were illegals. They mentioned that it is costing us $500,000 per patient to treat these people. I am not suggesting that we ignore their needs, but can't we please get some $$$ from Mexico to help cover the cost? It would be nice to be able to help the childrens burn ward and some of the patients in there that are US citizens or here legally.

I also think Mexico should get a bill from the United States. I am all for it, bill them.
