This is the SPANISH site of the medical program in Illinois: All Kids cuidados de salud para todos los nios

Here's one of the parts of the site: You do not have to be a citizen or a legal immigrant to get Moms & Babies.
You do not need to have a Social Security number to get Moms & Babies.

Oh and the states also has Family Care for the families of these kids. So the illegals get free healthcare! What a country.


all government forms should be only in English. if the person reading it cannot read english, then too bad.
no translators should be provided either except in cases of a felony case with a citizen from another country.

It isn't that. They don't want to offend the Hispanic-American voter. Some politicians will give away our country for votes.

Same thing. If the Dems said "NO" to any kind of amnesty, most Hispanics would still never vote Repub. They just wouldn't vote.

Well, being Black I don't blame anything on anyone but myself.

Well, Hispanics including those in congress threatened not to vote for Obama if he didn't get an amnesty passed. Of course you are right instead of voting Republican they just wouldn't vote period.

The sad thing is if you are say a working poor childless person you can't get assistance. Why are freeloading illegal moochers who are having future gang banger illegitimate children more important than someone who is trying to make a living and improving themselves but has no kids? why are these illegals more important than someone who is disabled, like mentally ill or physically disabled? Quinn cut funding for all of this, closed several mental hospitals, cut funding to places that take care of people unable to take care of themselves yet refused to cut funding for these moochers.

We would all love to know the answer to this. And, why does no one ask Obama about these things?

I had an operation last year and my heart stopped beating 3 times during surgery. I was in a medical coma for 3 days, in ICU.On the 4th day I was still out of it, and the insurance personnel came to me and told me that I was going to owe a lot more than they had thought because of my heart and the fact that they had to have a Cardiologist & Pulmonary DRs. brought in, so could I pay the $30,000 now since my insurance wouldn't cover that much? I still wasn't recovered, I guess they wanted that money in case I died before I could pay them. Bunch of pirates. The nurse told me this & she said they had to come back later and talk to my husband. I don't remember it, but they did come back and talk to my husband. Yet, they're not even allowed to ask an illegal anything about payments! They don't have to pay one red cent! It's a waste of time to even ask. They just take the Medicaid payment & that's it. We'll be paying on this for the rest of our lives.

Because to him the childless don't matter. That's most politicians regardless of party. Yes I called Governor Quinn's office to ask and they called me a racist who hates kids.

I know, it annoys me. Every time I see a job for WIC, Medicaid or the other welfare programs it always says MUST BE BILINGUAL. Why are we catering to them?

You ask an excellent question. Why are we catering to people who have no business being here?

The bleeding hearts cry about illegals who can't speak English so they insisted that everything be given to them in Spanish. The trouble with that is by doing this, it gives them no incentive to learn English.

We expect legal immigrants to learn English. Yet for some reason illegals are coddled.
