Folks, the Washington Post has gone all out in its overwhelming support for illegal immigrants as evidenced by the special they ran to day in the health section.

If you can't speak enough english, to get medical attention hospital then what the h-e(you know) are you doing in the US anyway?

Patients I see at "Moby," as we call our van, are often wary of clinicians like me because of language barriers, fears about their immigration status and confusion about the health system. They worry about long waits that could jeopardize their jobs.

Okay, Moby. Where is my van bringing me free healthcare? Oh, i forgot there aint one for real americans.

I like the part where it says that they'll get medical care in their native langauge from someone from their native country when possible. I understand it is practical, but these are the same people who will tell us that "diversity is our strength", "we're all one human race" and "celebrate diversity!" but at the same time acknowledge that people are more comfortable amongst their own.

I guess diversity is only good for us.
