I am beyond shocked to see how shallow-minded some people are in here. The marshallese people pay taxes to the states and federal like everyone else. They all worked hard to make a living just like everyone else here in the US.

the marshalese look like an ethnic version of trolls from lord of the rings, except with acne scarred faces and sandals.

their greatest achievement was agreeing to be nuked out of existence.

Cry if you want to my man. I'm sure that when you were on your home Island you heard all about the oppotunities that awaited you here in the land of milk and honey. Well, in the words of the late Paul Harvey, "here's the rest of the story". Americans for the most part are assholes! Welcome to the USA.

Although many Marshallese have health insurance through their employers, they often do not enter into formal marriages, so spouses and family members may not be covered by insurance plans.
Although these people have a legal presence here, and even though they are paying taxes like everyone else, they are not eligible for some of the services their tax dollars fund.
Maybe this will answer some of your idiotic suggestions. If you don't know what there culture is like or their homeland maybe you did not study American history. You guys bombed the shit out the islands causing many health issues.
Thanks Cherry Picker for your open minded and considerate comments. You must be an educated fellow. We need more people like you. I am disgusted with the nurse's comment above. She/he is definately not doing her job of educating these people. All she is doing is judge.
