A large company that does tree trimming for the utility companies hires illegals. A couple of years ago, one fell out of a tree. He was treated and kept in a county run hospital months before it was determined he would never walk again. His paralized self was returned to his mom south of the border.

Harris county Texas has been running a birthing center for as long as memory serves. And I'm a really old person.It has always been paid for by property owners.

IIRC, 1/3 of the drivers in Texas are uninsured.

Our county hospital in Dallas (Parkland) is thronging with illegals. A significant percentage of babies born there are born to illegal mothers.

If yesterday was any indication they steal my tools off of the job site right in the middle of the work day.

Gosh, we would have more legal mothers having babies if the taxpayers would pick up the tab for the pre-natal, delivery and funding to raise the child through to adulthood.

Most citizens don't consider a baby a financial asset, thus the decreasing birth rate in a time when we are supporting a lot of dead weight.

Does it go against their credit? Will they be sent to collections? If they have no I.D. how can they be found to pay up?
The schmucks who work for a living and have health insurance pay....for all the parasites sucking up free healthcare...

Yes, illegal aliens drive up the cost of health insurance and taxes. They also drive up the cost of car insurance. I couldn't believe it when we moved here, the number of hit and runs in the police reports in the newspaper. Also, we have a lot of dog bites, a LOT.

Illegal aliens are a plague on our country. We cannot continue to carry them. We can't let Grandma and Grandpa die because they can't afford their medication while giving free everything to illegal aliens who come with their hands out! Let's face it, we get the ones that were a plague to their own countries.
Yes, and many people come here specifically for free health care, not just pregnant women who want free care, and to deliver a baby which will become a U.S. citizen, but people with very critical problems which cost hospitals billions.

Not true. You can get emergency service on demand. But not continuing service such as Chem Therapy or Dialysis. Some of that makes no sense though. If you don't provide dialysis the patient simply worsens until you need to provide emergency service at astronomical cost. It probably kills the patient a lot quicker though.

The emergency service would cost less overall. You may donate all your retirement and savings to help all the third world poor illegals who are here. I would applaud you for that.

Not clear. I have heard the Medics argue that, with respect to Dialysis, it is vastly cheaper to provide dialysis then emergency care and dialysis. ICU treatment cost an order of magnitude more than walk in dialysis.

Why on earth would I want to devote any large portion of my income to medical care for the indigent? A couple of hundred to the Red Cross is about it. But it needs to be dealt with. Are you really one of the idiots who wants to let the indigent die in the hospital parking lots? Than you are going to complain if the government disposes of the bodies? Really want to see a 5 year old rotting outside the emergency room?

I will pass.
