    JTR ....
    have you read the article on A Study: Emergency Health Care for recent Illegal Immigrants in North Carolina.... where 93 percent are hispanics...I think we should send the country of origin a bill...my taxes are out of sight....and am very tired of paying for anything else, crime, babies, food, medical expenses etc. By the way, are you hispanic and bias??????

    of course they are legal. nobody would have such disreguard for our laws as to come here illegally, would they??? Certainly, if they did, our most competent government would push them out, to protect our citizens, right? No corporation or other business' would think of hiring them, due to the stiff penalties, and taking jobs from Americans and the ability to feed our families. Not to mention, how would their children get an education??? They would not be able to go to school. No way they could get medical care. That being said, how could they be illegal????? WAKE THE HELL UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Obviously...nothing is going to stop them from returning. We're wasting tons of money acting like we're doing border patrol. Make them part of us with the same rules as us. (my opinion)

    The question about them returning is one I've asked a couple of times and haven't gotten an answer. Once we deport what's to keep them from returning?

    Study: Emergency Health Care for Recent, Illegal Immigrants in N.C. Costly

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Paying for basic checkups and pregnancy care for illegal immigrants would save money in the long run, possibly averting expensive emergency treatment, say researchers who studied immigrants in North Carolina.

    Federal law generally excludes illegal immigrants and legal immigrants who have been in the U.S. less than five years from Medicaid, a joint state-federal program that provides health care coverage to the poor and disabled. But the law also allows Medicaid to pay for emergency medical care needed by some immigrants, including those who are pregnant or disabled.

    Researchers looking at so-called emergency Medicaid in North Carolina found that the overwhelming majority of such patients were female Hispanic illegal immigrants, and more than 80 percent received

    I believe everyone on here is waisting a lot of their time talking about illegals. If they deport them they will just come back.
