She looked sick and pregnant, very pregnant. She was dark-skinned, a small thing, pulling a tattered suitcase that had probably never been inside a 757. It was very early in the morning and she was headed to the United States on foot. Our eyes met briefly at the border crossing at the US entry point at Tiajuana, Mexico and she looked away. I knew. Her slow careful movement told me she was going to give birth soon. For all I knew, maybe that day. She was coming into the United States for a reason. You see, wise (and pregnant) Latinas dash across the border just in time to give birth at American hospitals -- medical services paid for by U.S. taxpayers --gaining instant citizenship for their children, thereby entitling them to the entire Chinese menu of American welfare programs.
In 2004, 42.6 percent of all babies born at taxpayer expense in California were born to illegal aliens, according to a state report on Medi-Cal-funded deliveries. In hospitals close to the Mexican border, the figure is closer to 80 percent. Remember: This is before health care becomes "free" to every U.S. resident.
Hospitals across the country are going bankrupt because the federal government forces them to provide free services to illegals. This situation appears to have angered some segment of the population, in particular, American citizens who pay taxes to support the hospitals, but then are forced to spend hours writhing in pain in hospital waiting rooms.
And now Democrats have the audacity to tell us that national health care won't cover illegals. Not only that, but they tell us we must not be able to read if we think it does.
It truly is a health care deformity. May God bless America and may God bless that woman and her baby. I hope we all make it.
