8% of all babies born in the U.S. (in 2008) were born to illegal aliens.
How many of them do you suppose come here and actually pay for their medical care? (Hint: NONE).
Do you think that just possibly these people are gaming the system in the U.S., specifically to get free medical care and the benefits of U.S. citizenship?
Do you think this does not have a significant impact on health care costs in the U.S.?
IF YOU THINK THIS IS A GOOD THING, you are either an illegal alien or an idiot.
Originally, I wasn’t too sure about a constitutional amendment revision to take care of this problem, but now that I’ve seen this data, I’m very much in favor of fixing it permanently.
One of the ways to stem the tide of illegal aliens is to remove the profit of coming here. It turns out that there are three draws: 1) come here to have your baby; 2) come here for a job; or 3) come here to run drugs. I don’t have hard numbers, but I bet if we take care of #1 and #2, we’ll reduce the problem to something our normal police forces can handle. And we can do both of these things legislatively – if we’ve got the guts (and integrity, in the case of Democrats, who see illegals as good little Democrats who will vote for them).
