Illegal immigration and how it affects healthcare costs in Maryland and other states is a story that must be told to understand what we are up against!
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!


Illegal Runs Up $1.5M Hospital Bill Then Sues! « Unfree State (broken link)




This video is unbelieveable.

This is a major problem for hospitals nationwide, and will only worsen the longer illegal aliens are permitted to avail themselves of our services.

I've read stories of Americans going to Mexico and other countries for medical and dental services because its cheaper. I have yet to read of an instance where they were provided these services for free.

You won't. Americans do not receive "free" medical treatment in Mexico.

Not free, but you can find really cheap medication over there, which is what many elderly Americans are finding themselves doing.

And this to me is a sad situation when elderly Americans have to resort to that and illegals get good free American health care...hmmm, what's wrong with this picture?

Quite right. In fact, I do remember reading and hearing of a case where the Mexican authorities actually held a daughter for "ransom" for a medical bill, until her family paid what Mexico told them they owed.

That's despicable.....and they have the audacity to complain that ‘their’ citizens are being "mistreated" by the mean-spirited Americans. I don’t believe it’s possible to be more hypocritical than the Mexican government.
