I love the helium head that said "it is like racist because there are white people that don't pay their bills." Perhaps the white people are US citizens, but I agree, if the white people are illegally here, then send them back to Canada, Ireland or wherever they came from along with the others. What morons we are raising in the country.

With La Raza, American citizenship does not matter, they expect the taxpayers of this country to provide completely free hospital and medical care to any and all people of Latin American nations that want to come and take it.

I worked at Parkland last year for a few months and saw their OB charts firsthand--and from what I saw, it was closer to 90% IA patients delivering there.

I commend the AZ hospitals in doing whatever they deem necessary.

Very valid point, Motley . . . however, not all Hispanics are "brown" as there are plenty of "white Hispanics" in the world.

The Parkland figures are taken from an article printed around June of 2006, so it probably is 90% by now. Thanks for the update. It is always helpful to hear from people who are on the front lines.

Many emergency rooms in California have already closed due to losses incured by those who could not pay.

That's the whole problem. Something that La Raza types don't understand and that's that the money has to come from somewhere. There cannot be unlimited free health care offered to all the citizens of Latin American nations because even the La Raza employees and physicians working in those hospitals expect to be paid for their services.

What La Raza ought to do is appeal to their own La Raza physicians and nurses, pharmacists, lab workers, housekeepers, and so on to volunteer their services... it would be for the Raza after all.

No hospital has the right to toss American citizens period.
