The Houston Chronicle reports that Parkland Memorial hospital forked out $22.4 Million last fiscal year on illegals.
Even more shocking, the Feds are pumping $250 Million into Texas per year to help cover the cost of treating illegals. There are about 610 hospitals in Texas. Granted, not all hospitals are public nor for-profit but, on average if all the hospitals spent that amount of money per year, the cost would be $1.34 Trillion throughout the state.
I went to a local hospital that treats illegals and many of the prisoners that "take ill" when in custody. I wanted to know how much that the hospital spends each year on treating these people. After 3 phone calls and 2 visits, I quit. It was a stone wall. I couldn't get an answer. I'm not surprised as that hospitals are not forthcoming with the information because they don't want to be labelled 'racist'. As a good liberal should do, they just suck it up and apply their medical trade with equanimity and fairness. Nevermind that our insurance rates continue to climb, our property taxes continue to go up (33% this year) and our schools are getting worse by the month.
Many hospitals are billing the patient's country of origin for the medical services that are provided .. that is a step in the right direction. A more important step would be to build a fence and put our military at the border, with bayonets fixed and pointing south ... that would guarantee a significant drop in illegal immigration.
Other coppers already know this but for you Mr. or Miss Average Citizen - go sit in the Branch 2 call at 26th and California (Felony Traffic Court) and see who fills the gallery. You'll see all the people who "come to do the jobs that Americans won't do" sitting there, requesting a translator and tying up the courts, jails and administrative services.
I can't wait to read Buchanan's State of Emergency.
The Visigoths are at the gate and they're pushing "elotes" carts!
