Dallas County Wants Refunds for Mexicans' Health Care
Commissioners in Dallas County, Texas, plan to ask the Mexican government to pay for the medical care given to Mexican nationals at a local hospital.
Each year, Dallas County taxpayers spend $15 million to treat Mexican nationals at Parkland Hospital - and that total includes only the first two days of the patients' emergency care, according to CBS 11 News in Dallas.
"We will be sending a bill to Mexico's president to explain to him and to the embassy how much money it is costing the Dallas County taxpayer to treat their residents, and they need to reimburse Dallas County," said County Judge Margaret Keliher.
Jesse Diaz, local president of the League of United Latin American Citizens, complained: "Why punish Mexico? Mexico should not be a scapegoat ... the immigrants are paying taxes, buying homes and cars, and are contributing to the economy."
Dallas County will also send bills to nearby Texas counties whose residents seek care at Parkland - running up a tab of nearly $27 million a year, according to Keliher.
Dallas can't force those other counties to pay up. But Parkland's board chair Dr. Lauren McDonald said if outsiders don't pay their fair share of emergency and trauma care, it will have a devastating effect on the hospital and those who rely on it.

particular they do. while you're from yet another united states and can't pay in Mexico you don't get medical care. Any toddler born in Mexico to somebody interior the country illegally additionally will no longer be a citizen.

It is not the illigal immigrant using us funds,,,ask Mr. bush and mr. Channey////do you idiots know how much was spend in iraq....come on my fellow gringos,,,the government knew we had a immigration proble, but what did they do, we were asking question like, why are we in iraq, and why are so many soilders dying? So what did congress come up with, well there is a problem with illigal immigrants comming to this country(not only mexican, illigal can be from europe and asia)lets debate on what to do with then, that will statrt a browl, and people will focus less on iraq and gas prices, come on my anglos you guy invented strategies, think ///if you guys think that illigals are using up medical expenses, think twice, every body that is in public assistance has to be us citizens, i mean you guys want to aregue about something you dont even have knowledge about...so what about african americans on welfare,,,,,or the trailer trash with 4 kids from 4 babys daddy who are you going to bill mr. bush,hahahahaha, stop blamming mexicans for the failure of others, dont get me wrong, I am not a mexican , I am want you gringos call a refugee, I am a cuban american, but if you are going to blame shortage from our countrys funds, you should ask the source, why do we loan millions of dollars to third world country which are run by drug lord, I worship this country, this country has done alot for me, and yes i believe we should question who comes here, because it is for our safety, but lets not be ignorant either,

Good luck on that one, I think Fox's whole concept is that YOU pay HIS bills, not the other way around LOLOL I do think it's a good point, though, that people start asking who IS going to pay for all of this, Congress needs to change the brand of coffee they're drinking, something with caffeine in it, maybe...

I don't know how many times I have seen angela answer stupidly. Try an education of current events and look on web. Your either very young or just plain stupid. Ignorant people can learn. So that leaves you out. Or are you just if it doesn't help your belief you rather not accept fact. Grow up.
And to your question I hope people don't plan on getting sick in America because the programs are running out of money . Thanks to abusers and the strain of Illegals. And angela look that up if you know how.

The right of the courts to force their elitist and ignorant theories down our throats has no place in a free country. If you accept Marbury v Madison, you have no right to complain. Anyone who doesn't see this as the problem is a phony nationalist.Source(s): Research Jefferson's opinion on John Marshall's outrageous act of overthrowing the government taken as the will of the people

Not a chance. The reason why they qualify for all these benefits that are bankrupting us is because of civil rights law. Any law that comes out of Congress is subject to being struck down by civil rights.

The sky is falling--we do not have an endless pot of gold. And many are in hospitals everyday- everywhere because they can not afford medicine. They don't qualify. Seems some can not see past their charming lives. Call any hospital and ask. Its murder for some.

Yeah well, I would ... and YOU would ... but our administration? Think again ...that unpatriotic lot don't give a damn about the tax payers ... if you're not an illegal immigrant, a multi national corporation, or fabulously rich, you don't count ...
