"Medical tourism," that's a joke... if it was so fun and cheap to get medical attention in Juarez, then why do people run to border for Thomason so our taxpayer's money goes up, so our medical expences here go up, then it cost too much for healthcare, then to Mexico we go for cheap healthcare, then get shot up... Do you see a circle that needs to be taken care of people. Why don't they use the advertisment money and build their own level 1 trama center for their mess?

I'm not surprised at what you said because you probably have no idea of how the hospital operates and laws that permit the treatment of patients. Another point to keep in mind is that the majority of the people that were being treated at the hospital have been either US citizens or resident. You should probably stop your rhetoric and actually learn and get educated on these type of issues.

What is the point? Are they running out of innocent people to kill down in Juarez and they are trying to recruit more people to shoot to add to the already 1000 that have been killed?
