I have to agree with you.

I could post links that would really take you over the edge, but I wouldn't want you to completely explode. This invasion is way out of hand.

Arm yourself and apprise everybody that you know about the crisis we face. This is going on every day in every state. It might help to email this video to everyone in your address book.

Knowledge is power.

Above is a short video of a hospital administrator telling how one illegal from Guatemala cost the hospital more than $1.5 million to save his life, and his family is now suing the hospital!

This video is unbelieveable.
This is DISGUSTING, JDubsMom!

The big question . . . When will our Pandering Greedy Politicians get the message?

Sadly, never. They have developed an insatiable appetite for cheap illegal labor. We The People must stop them.

1st case the director refers to, she nor hospital staff have the jurisdiction to return someone to their home country.

the 2nd case, they should withdraw care and let nature take its course.

add to that, she doesn't tell of the other side, which is that it becomes a tax write off for hospitals (at least those that are non profit, as it is lumped under "charity care", and actually allows hospitals to invest less in their surrounding communities (a part of mission and tax code status for a non profit in the 1st place).

they don't have an equivalent of our emtala law. but then again, most countries don't. in many other countries, you show up to the hospital, you start paying out of pocket right then and there.

we could get rid of the emtala law, but that would affect our own citizens as well.
