    And it is a given that some percentage of them cause problems to society.

    You and others ONLY look at the xenophobic CONS of illegals and then stereotype as if all of them are robbing the USA blind.

    Your position of worrying about a few illegals and the problems you believe they cause, while ignoring the tens of millions of Americans who cause the identical problems, comes across as nothing more than a witch-hunt!

    When I live and work in harmony every single day with immigrant farm workers and their families, I see firsthand their value to the USA, and IMO I am far less worried about 'them' than saintly Americans who we read about every day in the newspaper robbing, and killing, and raping...
    Did you know both our problems and the solutions can be found simply by looking in our mirrors...and...Never confuse the extraordinary stuff I think and write with that of a well-balanced person!

    When Americans wake up so will the country...until then...we remain comatose and hopeless.

Then the mother would bleed out because she had no money or health care. Illegals have manipulated this to a fine art.

    Most hospitals that give this emergency room treatment is paid for by the government in the form of your tax dollars.
    How about quantifying your statement in BOLD above?

    Not entirely. The governent picks up only some of the cost. The hospital is forced to pay the rest, otherwise the government will stop paying the hospital to treat medicare patients. The reimbursement rates are ridiculously low and do not cover the actual costs of treatment, including liability insurance expenses, of treating the poor.

    Since the hospital is not allowed to charge patients more than a government-specified amount for a specific treatment that is being reimbursed by medicare, the costs of treating the poor end up being pushed onto patients without medicare. This is one of the reason medical care costs are so unaffordable in the USA.

    But what has started to happen is that many hospitals in areas with large numbers of minorities have either closed down, or stopped treating medicare patients, just to avoid the expenses of treating the poor. Some hospitals have actually rellocated to higher income retirement neighborhoods that are just beyond practical reach of the minorities in the poor neigborhoods. This way, they can treat medicare patients without being forced to pay for the poor.

    With all the emergency rooms becoming overcrowded or closing down, there have been a rapid rise in "urgent care centers", which are basically the same thing as emergency rooms but with a technical name change that allows them to refuse treatment to the those unable/unwilling to pay. Many hospitals are actually reducing the size of their emergency rooms and outsourcing to contracted out urgent care centers, to avoid legal obligations.

    The new phenomena now is that the retired upper middle class are building their own hospitals within their gated communities. This way they can still enjoy medicare payments while actually fencing out the poor!

    This I have got to see! Show me one (1) American who is illegally in the USA...

    When I live and work in harmony every single day with immigrant farm workers and their families, I see firsthand their value to the USA, and IMO I am far less worried about 'them' than saintly Americans who we read about every day in the newspaper robbing, and killing, and raping...
    WOW...You just don't get it do you! Are you that fascinated with illegals?

    LOL...a few illegals.No one knows for sure how many of these ingrates are in the US.Estimates say between 12 and 20 million and maybe as high as 30.

    The reason you enjoy these illegals is for the following reasons.Your a xenophilous person who enjoys Exploiting illegals for your personal gain.

    That's how much income our family has lost as a direct result of illegals over the last year.
    We run (ran) a specialty construction company, 10 seasonal produce stands and a house cleaning service. We now earn as of last year $ 22K and live in subsidized housing.
    Illegals have flooded the trades, caused the falure of countless businesses,
    and using a federal tax number might be sitting in YOUR desk one day.
    You only focus on low paying farm labor jobs and mention nothing of the 14 million good paying jobs in the hands of illegals at this moment. Why is that old man?
    I'd like to see you back up your 14 million figure as well. And provide some examples of the so called good paying jobs you referring to.

    They are just people who hate Hispanics...xenophobia...so they just make up stuff in order to justify their biased positions.

    Fact...no one knows how many illegals are in the USA.

    Fact...no one knows all the jobs they possess.

    Fact...lots of women, and the elderly, and the sick, and kids, all illegals, are not holding jobs. Only 45% of the American population work, so if we use the 14 million number, maybe 6.3 million illegals actually work. Many of these work part-time jobs and migrate for work. So in reality maybe 2-3 million of them have full time jobs, and common sense tells us those jobs are not 'good paying'!

    Fact...if they are 'good paying' jobs, why are Americans incapable of competing for these jobs?

    It's just xenophobia and this won't change until all the ignorance is purged from society...maybe in 100-200 years...probably longer...
    Did you know both our problems and the solutions can be found simply by looking in our mirrors...and...Never confuse the extraordinary stuff I think and write with that of a well-balanced person!
