This is a good start. However, tax-funded deliveries, WIC, and welfare should also be eliminated. I doubt if ANY other country is so generous.

Around 1,000 pregnant women who are illegal immigrants will no longer receive prenatal services through the federal-state Medicaid program, beginning in early spring, according to Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services leaders.

The assumption is that the prenatal coverage also is for the benefit of the unborn child, who will be a U.S. citizen once born.

However, federal officials have told state leaders that federal law prohibits Medicaid coverage for people who are not documented except for emergency care. That means no prenatal care for pregnant moms.

"Unborn child is not an accepted Medicaid eligibility group," said Vivianne Chaumont, director of the Division of Medicaid and Long-Term Care, in a letter to state senators.

"The only Medicaid coverage that is available for an undocumented alien pregnant woman is the cost of delivery and the cost of treating complications of pregnancy considered to be emergencies," she wrote.

It seems to me that the 'pinprick' tactics against illegal aliens are increasing in number with the hopeful goal of running them off. As another poster stated: take down the bird feeder and they will leave.

We need legislation like this in Calif. We are overwhelmed with pregnant illegal alien women. The costs to the tax payer have got to be astronomical.

They need to round up the pregnant women before they give birth to the future U.S. citizen and kick 'em out.

I'm not exactly sure how the law works, but, if an illegal alien gives birth here, thus making the kid a natural born citizen, that means they have amnesty or some crap like that? They can't kick out the parent because of the child? Is that how it works?

Yes it is.


That is where the term "anchor baby" came from. It makes it extremely difficult to remove the offending criminal trespasser once they have circumvented the loophole in the 14th amendment.

The child and family are now a minimum of 5 years a drain on the US taxpayers. From there we will still pick up the tab for education and healthcare. The new International lotto program called, "Just show up".

The pro-criminal side will argue that Illegal Aliens cannot receive benefits. Well, that is not so. We cannot turn back anyone from a ER faciliity. Once we factor in the benefits they as a family unit rake out of the tax payers pockets they indeed do receive a huge amount of social benefits.


In summary that is what most of the anti-illegal side is against, the pillaging of our tax payer funded social service base.
