If you think your kid puking non-stop throughout the night is not a problem? No ones primary physician is open at mid night on a weekend
I have insurance, it's a slap in the face to be waiting behind people that aren't even supposed to be standing on US soil, much the less Illegals with no insurance.

I think the ER should make people pay a co-pay based on the type of need they have. If Illegals had to pay up front some cash I'd bet that line would be a fraction of what it is now.

Excuse me but how do you know if they are illegal? Did you ask them if they were Illegal? You feel you need to first in line because you are white? I have been to the Hospital and there are Hispanics, Anglo Whites, Blacks but I cant tell who is Illegal?

I'm pretty sure that once I show my insurance card I come off the "watch list" But thanks for asking

OMG there are many Hispanic Americans of old age that do not speak English. They are Legal US citizens of this country. Stutter about their name? Please give me a break. Not having insurance makes you an Illegal? There millions of un insure Americans that use the Hospitals. Most Illegals do not use the Hospital because they are scare of getting deported. Please stop blaming Illegals for all your problems. Maybe you should take care of your own problems and stop blaming others.

That’s not true. In fact, illegals using hospitals as their primary care physician is a major factor in hospitals nationwide going bankrupt. Google, and you will see.
