well you know that only illegals and welfare recipiants will use this emergency room.then it will go under.then to finish it off obamas hcp will go into effect.doctors and hospitals will quit before this happens.so you really dont know what your talking about.go home to mexico and you wont have to worry about it.[since you dont pay taxes.]

Yes, you have a while but it will not be permanent. We are tired of carrying this load and it's not fair.

No No No......they deport only those who commit crime, we are not criminals. They cannot ask for any papers unless we've done something wrong.

I feel like America is the land of opportunity and think helping all is part of what we are about....HOWEVER.... I really feel strongly that if you want to live in my country, you should folloW protocol, and do the right thing to be legal. I fall into the catagory of Citzens who make literally one dollar more than any government aid allows. My family looks ok on paper but those forms don't take personal issues to heart. I'd be lying if I said that it doesn't bother me that we can't get insurance,chips,Medicaid while my illegal nieghbors do but damn, it's hard to deny that although we have troubles with that maybe others have it worse. Why can't you guys just properly become citizens and pay your taxes. It's the free ride that posses us off!
