Texas: Thousands of Mexican woman in the late stages of their pregnancies are entering the United States illegally in such boarder states as Texas and having their babies at the taxpayers expense.
In the short video linked below, CBS interviews one such mother, who says"she doesn't understand Americans' resentment," for picking up the tab and providing an anchor baby!

Same in CA, but the RINO Arnold keeps charging the CA citizens for it. Looks like AZ is getting smart about, we'll see.

Yes, isn't diversity good? I thought our differences made us stronger? Shouldn't America share our wealth with other developing nations to get rid of our guilt? /sarcasm

This is just wrong, flat out, and it doesn't make you racist or anti-immigrant to feel anger toward people who do this (what, you don't think non-brown people have come over here and done the same thing? If we were neighbors with Russia instead of Mexico, you think Ruskies would n't be doing exactly as Mexicans are doing?)

I have a relative who can't even get health insurance because he has a preexisting condition, he's too proud (or stupid) to apply for the benefits that he has a RIGHT to because he has worked and paid into the system, yet people like this woman have no problem just swimming across the boarder and sucking an already crippled public welfare system dry...Something has to give people, and I suspect if the gubment don't handle it some angry citizens are going to take matters into their own hands in a less than pleasant fashion.

This is absolutely nauseating. I also had a C-Section, and I can attest to the fact that the $4,700 quoted for this birth does not include the additional costs associated with this procedure. She also came here 6-months pregnant, so I’m sure she also received “free” prenatal care for her ‘future’ US citizen.

When I had my son, there was also a requisite 5-day hospital recuperation period. After all, it’s major surgery. In addition, costs were incurred for my son’s overnight stay in the NICU, as well as “other” costs. My bill (thank God I had insurance) was in excess of $15,000. Of course, not being an illegal alien, I still had to pay a percentage. That was in 1992. I can only imagine what the total cost was for this birth today. The flagrant abuse and manipulation of the 14th Amendment must stop, along with the freebies associated with this appalling abuse.

Correct, and justified.

I would estimate that illegals in the border states using our health care system are responsible for half of our insurance premiums. I could be wrong, but the math is right about there.

Sadly, Progressive . . . this TRAVESTY is happening all over the United States, definitely NOT just Texas.

I'm sorry, but I'd like to slap that smug look off of that woman's face when she says "I don't understand the resentment". WHAT?!

The guy had just told her that we, the taxpayers, must pay for her child. And, we're supposed to find a way from God to accept this? Why? Why doesn't her own country ask God to let THEM take care of their own people?
