Now that Palomas has a place for pregnant women to deliver their babies, the next step would be for Mexico to help Palomas get their own ambulance to transport their emergencies to Ausencion, Chihuahua. It's the closest city to Palomas besides Juarez. It should be up to Mexico to help there own people out, not the US taxpayers.

"The state recognized this was becoming a financial issue, but Paul Dulin said they also realized they could not shut the mothers from Mexico out without giving them another viable location to give birth."

Say again ?!?!?
