Full story: El Paso Times 18
Little hands gripped small plastic shovels and dug furiously into layers of multicolored sand Saturday morning to ceremonially break ground for the $120 million El Paso Children's Hospital. Full Story

Mexican anchor babies join in ceremony for new Mexican anchor baby hospital. Nice. The picture of a few of the Mexican anchors holding U.S. flags is an even nicer touch.

Can you anchors say: Thank You Gringo?

Up yours, Guadalupe. My son was one of the kids and he's white and American. There were no "anchor babies" there. My kid has had 22 surgeries in six years and only two were able to be done in El Paso due to lack of adequate care. It's about time.

As far as "Thank you Gringo?" -- the voters and taxpayers of El Paso are 80% hispanic -- and they approved the bond issue to have this hospital built. So, mostly, they can thank themselves and the few gringos that have enough courage to live here and appreciate hispanic culture and not feel threatened by it.

So, go back to your trailer, mount your cousin and crack open another Busch Light. There's probably some NASCAR on somewhere, you ignorant racist f u c k.

Of course the Mexicans voted for it. They love the government handouts.

What ever happened to the concept of responsibility, waiting to have babies until you can actually afford them yourselves. People here spit out babies figuring it's up to everyone else to pay their costs.

There is some truth to all these statements. The hospital we need a lot of money and guess where it is going to come from. You the taxpayer and get ready to pay more along with the city tax, county tax, and community college. That's why it should be called EL PASO COUNTY TAXPAYER HOSPITAL FOR CHILDREN.

I'm always appalled by the racism derived from ignorance that comes out in these forums but I cant stay quite any longer. First of all before people who comment educate yourself on the matter. Anyone heard of the doctors creed to help anyone when they need it. They don't look at there finances or address before they help. Thats part of whats wrong with everyone where all GREEDY.We waste more money on unneeded things daily. To all of those who say this is unneeded Hopefully your lucky enough who wont know a child who needs it. If not be brave enough to tell all the sick children who do their not worth it. IF you can do that your the one whose not needed. To all of those who don't wanna help this city move forward and be better than all the places where compared to SEE YA!

I sure hope that all of you that are posting comments on this site are over the child bearing age. GOD forbid, if one of your children or grandchildren are born with a problem that needs medical intervention. At least now, when this hospital is built, you won't have to travel to San Antonio, Houston or Dallas to get the help you need!!!!!!!

I don't have kids, don't want kids, and I could care less about anyone else's kid. I didn't tell you to have kids so I should not have to waste my taxes on their health care and education. If you can't afford to take care of you kids, you shouldn't be allowed to have them. Mandatory abortion.
Your really are as ignorant as you sound this inst a free clinic! You also seem to miss the point this is for sick children! I wonder how you would of felt if you where sick as a child and couldnt get the help you needed!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday's historic event had nothing to do with illegal immigraton, Juarez or anchor babies. It was about finally doing what is right for the children of our community. I think that if the small-minded,bigoted people who have posted such ugly comments here had been at yesterday's ceremony, they, too, would have been moved by the realization that there is great need in EL PASO. Our city's children deserve better than they are getting. They need help, they need hope, and they deserve our commitment to their futures. Surely, we adults can afford to pay about $1.40 a month to give them a place of healing. It disgusts me that so-called adults can be so mean spirited.
Unbelievable

How can anyone be so callous as to wish ill-will on our most precious resource? It's frightening to think that the posters of such toxic venom may be my neighbors...closet bigots who hide behind anonimity. Shame on you, but I take solice in knowing that God knows who you are! I hope you sleep fretfully tonight.
Great Day

I was there. It was a magnificent event that signals the start of better days ahead for our kids! Thank you Thomason for finally addressing an issue that has shamed us for decades. I can certainly live with $1.40 less a month, especially knowing that my small contribution may save the life of a child.

$1.40 a month? My son's health is priceless. Thank you Thomason for doing what El Paso's corporate-owned hospitals turned their backs on because they were more concerned with the bottom line that our greatest asset, the children of El Paso. And congratulations on your evoltuion into a University Medical Center. Dallas, San Antonio, Houston have nothing on us anymore!
