If illegal immigration wasn't a national problem before, it certainly is now! Story dated 10 May 2005
"By law, hospitals cannot turn away patients." Well, that's good, right? If we need medical care, we can get it no matter what -- it provides a safety net. Those of us who can pay simply have a little extra tacked on our bills to cover the cost. I mean, I'm not too happy about this, but it is a much better system than socialized medicine. This safety net benefits our society as a whole, so I am not going to argue that it is wrong. But what happens in border states, like Arizona, when hordes of Spanish-speaking, poverty stricken, illegal immigrants simply walk across the unenforced border and require medical attention? Well, there are so many of them that the safety net stretches beyond capacity and breaks. The hospitals have to treat so many illegal aliens that they are always loosing money. If you aren't making money, you fold. Even non-profits have overhead expenses. Supplies cost money. Nothing is free.
In response to this problem, your federal government has decided that, instead of actually enforcing our border, they are going to reach into your pocket to subsidize the healthcare of illegal immigrants -- people who break the law to come here. The good thing about this is that it makes illegal immigration a real problem for all of us now. Maybe finally the natives will get so restless that Congress will have to listen to them.
And lest you mistake me for some sort of ethnic purist because of my frequent use of the term 'native', by 'native' I mean someone who was born here and speaks English. And, no, I am not anti-immigration. I am anti-illegal immigration. We are a nation of laws. If you want to come here, follow the law.
Oh, and thay are not undocumented immigrants. They are illegal aliens and they are criminals because they are here in violation of the laws of these United States. If the feds aren't going to enforce the immigration laws, we need to get them to not enforce other laws as well; like drug laws and tax laws -- you know, laws that result in the jailing of thousands Americans who have harmed no one?

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
