Don't lie?
An unpleasant new report claims that many hospitals in major metro areas are struggling with the growing problem of “permanent patients.”
What’s a “permanent patient”? According to the New York Times they are mostly illegal immigrants or people who lack insurance or their own housing that the hospital cannot turn away.
The Times defines a “permanent patient”:
…[someone who has] been languishing for months or even years in…hospitals, despite being well enough to be sent home or to nursing centers for less-expensive care, because they are illegal immigrants or lack sufficient insurance or appropriate housing.
Of course, having dozens of patients hanging around that long means these hospitals are absorbing the bill for millions of dollars in unreimbursed expenses annually.
Unsurprisingly, the majority of these “permanent patients” are illegal immigrants because, as mentioned in the above, they have no housing or family in the area.
“Medicaid often pays for emergency care for illegal immigrants, but not for continuing care, and many hospitals in places with large concentrations of illegal immigrants, like Texas, California and Florida, face the quandary of where to send patients well enough to leave,” writes Sam Roberts of the Times.
What kind of cost are we talking about here?
“Care for a patient languishing in a hospital can cost more than $100,000 a year, while care in a nursing home can cost $20,000 or less [emphasis added],” Roberts reports.
Patients fit to be discharged from hospitals but having no place to go typically remain more than five years, says LaRay Brown, a senior vice president for New York City’s Health and Hospitals Corporation.
Most likely that report was made by a racist republican who blame everything on the illegal aliens, yet they forget to add the number of white-homeless with plenty of disease who use the emergency room often most of them stay in the hospital for food as the money they get from Social Services are use for their illegal drugs. I seen them selling their food stamps at the store asking for cash in return. Those whithies are most likely to be drug addicts, released from prison for killing their wives or rapiing little boys.

Crimes committed by whites do not count? there are more than 10000 crimes committed by whites than any other race. Whites need guns for what? To kill minor kids just for having a different skin color than claim they did it on self-defence, you whites need guns to kill your wives after buying life insurance for them-it's all over the media the number of whites who kill their wives instead of divorcing them. Yeah that's really republicans isn't? And lastly read history-this country it's build with immigrants from world wide the first were you white trash from Europe than the Mexican then Hispanics from latin American following by Asians. So what are you going to do? Nothing as many are born here just like you others do live here legally-don't like it stuff yourself with cheese burger from the dollar menu cuz there is nothing you can do about it.
Where I'm from Nortenos and Surenos are killing each other... then white people and other races think Mexicans are savages. Who's fault is it that brings the image of Mexicans down... it's not white people. Seems to me the people who kill for the color of their skin is Mexicans not whites, you hear it every night I'm the news. So you can say what you want but you and I know I'm right.

Homeless? Ha ha ha!!! All you have to do is look at the welfare office or the WIC center, the population of Hispanics is about 45% but is about 90% at these places.

Don't get offend by the truth man, just because you don't like what you hear makes it racist. Is it racist of me to say Mexican food is delicious? It's true

Where I'm from there are a lot of whites americans living in a car or streets few time hiding under bridges-day time you see them asking people for few cents-they say to do anything for money-I do feel sorry for them. I suppose it's better to see people in pubic assistance office than see them begging for few bucks for their illegal drugs and alcohol. And it's true Mexican and Asian food are delicious, cheese burgers are disgusting.

That's gangs killing each other same as Nazis killing others no differences except the Nazis are more up north. Nortenos means they're American citizens vs the ones from south don't mean they all Mexicans they're Hispanics from different part of the world few Asians. I know more than you think, the difference is that I don't say things base on peoples looks, assuming they're Mexicans when they're not if am curious to know, I ask but most of the time I don't.

Norteno= XIV= Nuestra Familia= Mexicans, not white, not Asians, not black, but Mexicans.

Surenos=XIII= La Eme=Mexicans, not white, not Asians, not black, but Mexicans.

Both have American citizens.

Nazis??? Ha ha ha come on man!!!! Don't put sh!t down for the sake of putting something. You and I know very well that Mexican gangs are killing each other in huge numbers. Just look at Califas, you have Mexican gang related stabbings, shootings on a regular basis.

I guess the suit fits you... "ignorant people" ha ha ha

I'm not going to disagree with you in this one...

One caveat - Government assistance abuse comes in all colors, but when it comes to cracking down on them (say drug testing) liberal idiots scream racism, because supposedly cracking down on abusers targets minorities... what are they saying? What are they afraid of? People shouldn't be worried if they're not using, unless they think a lot of people would get caught... sad

"Nuestra Familia" are Mexicans well from the news they said they're are a mix Hispanics from: Salvador, Mexico, Honduras, Ecuador, etc. I'm assuming they know more than you as they're the ones who investigate before going on air. Now there are gangs from Blacks, Asians, you name it. Not just Nortenos, vs surenos even the Nazis just walk near big cities you'll see them all and stop making things up! "nuestra familia" was created in USA prison by the way-see the news more often do your research and will find out the truth. The suit does not fit me on any way again you assuming stupidity as usual get a real clue before opening your wide mouth-man I have seen dumb people but you are just beyond that and a waste of my time. Learn something: not all Mexicans are illegal, not all Hispanics are Mexicans you dumb people always confuse Puerto Ricans with Mexicans that's how dumb and clueless you are!

Latino community will not vote for racist pos
Also latino, Asians, hindus, etc do not go to grocery stores such as Safeway, traded joes etc due to the high racism towards the darker skin people. In few year you will be less than minorities I guess that mean American store will go bankrupt-Asian and Mexican store will get richer and richer as they do not give dirty looks to any one ha ha. I know that sounds bad but you racist earn it the hard way ha ha ha.

Ha ha ha the news? I thought you said you knew? Now you're telling you heard it on the news? You're a joke man!!! Sadly most of my family are nortenos, I never fell for that stupid sh!t but I've lived it first hand.

Here I did some research for you
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuestra_Famili...
I bet you feel stupid now

Even the History channel did show on Nuestra Familia (gang land)
They did one for La Eme too... I see you didn't touch that one cause you know it's called the Mexican Mafia... the largest gang in California. Go ahead look it up.

I actually feel bad for you, you try so hard but you can't. Now you see who really is clueless? I see you're still the ignorant fool

Maybe YOU should do a little more research before opening your lame BOCA. HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!! you're too easy.

So your saying there will be more cheap labor? How is an uneducated population going to be? Just saying... you know I'm right. Just look at any place, ANY, where the majority of the population is Mexican/Hispanic and you'll find deplorable schools, high gang violence, being exploited, and high dependency on the government . I guess that's what you call taking over? Ha ha ha ha!!!!

Better yet tell me of a place here in the states where the majority of the population is Mexican/Hispanic and is the opposite of what I said above... you can't

You hate that I tell the truth!!!!

yes, in terms of ICE agents you are correct but they had full cooperation of local law enforcement and that is what resulted in all those arrests and deportations. As many self deported as were arrested and deported. Once the criminals see they have no safe haven the flee like rats fell a sinking ship.
Yes I wonder how much Law Enforcement would cooperate?
Perhaps the ones that came out publicly and said they would not allow the Feds to Enforce any Gun control laws in their jurisdictions.
Sheriff Joe and a few others, but what about the majority of these other guys who took an oath to uphold our laws but never bother to do anything other than get an interpreter when they run across these illegal scumbag criminals ??
