A) why would it be any harder for illegals to buy PRIVATE insurance?
B) if they are here illegally, and not too concerned about having broken the law in that manner, then why would they be concerned about breaking a law requiring them to have health insurance?

I bet most insurance companies don't care where you come from, as long as you can fatten their coffers.
I am sure they don't care because illegals are more likely to die on the job so they will probably try to collect all the money they can from the illegals, deny a bunch of medical claims, and sit back and look at all the money they collected from them before they died.

The racial make up of the Dominican Republic is 90% black and mulatto. Why do you consider yourself Hispanic and not black? Just asking.

Because I do not look like a black person and black people would balk at me if I identified as Black. And even then, why does it matter? Thanks for the ignorance (and underlying racism) though. The DR is not 90% black, though many Dominicans are black. It's interesting how you instantly parade your European ancestry though. My great grandfather was a Sephardic Jew and my grand parents are from Basque country (San Sebastian) in Spain, but I do not feel like I need to QUALIFY myself in order to be seen as Hispanic and not anything else. Nor does having more Euro blood make you any better than say, a black Dominican. Most of the time, most people think I'm Brazillian or Argentian or something.

And FYI,Hispanic is an ethnic, not a racial term. You can be any race and be Hispanic.

If you are not an illegal immigrant, than obviously you do not have to go back to anywhere. Find something else be fake offended by.

I hit a nerve, sorry. BTW, I'm not offended by anything you posted. Nor am I ashamed of any part of who I am. I'm not the one who identified herself as 'hispanic', I was just wondering why you did. When an old man asked me what I was, I told him I was a woman.

I'm Hispanic. My parents are from the Dominican Republic and they have paid alot of money and have gone through ALOT to be here. And they did all using legal resources and avenues. These (illegal) immigrants can do it too. They need to go to the end of the line the same way my parents, my two uncles and my cousin did. They dont get a free pass just because they're Mexican. SORRY. America was not meant to be a charity organization for Mexico.
Liberals have no respect for the laws or respect for the people that come here respecting our laws. All these illegal immigrants are a drag on the process for the people who play by the rules.

You would think the brain dead on the left would consider there is no country to go back to if they were born here nor will they ever answer that little bit of elementary thought.

Your fake naivete needs work. I have already posted on that thread. Dominicans do come from a Spanish speaking country that has roots in Spanish colonialism, hence they are part of Latin America- though that seems to make you scratch your head for some reason, possibly due to a superiority complex and not wanting to be associated with black people even if they are Latino? I think yes. I address that hypocritical racist attitude in my other post as well.

Not all 'liberals' support amnesty for illegals, nor are we 'brain dead'. Does saying that make you feel better about yourself?

This 'liberal' has always been very vocal against amnesty and very vocal against the 'anchor baby' situation.

And as far as not respecting the laws of this land (plural), could you please present examples?

Thank you.

Well it is clear you are not up on who has consistantly supported and promoted illegal immigration and anchor babies the most, liberals/Democrats. Do a little research on voting records.
