FLASHBACK: Outrageous Video Of How Illegal Immigrants Run Up Health Care Costs, Now Feds Are Moving To Dismiss Some Deportation Cases

(The Blast) - As reported on the Drudge Report, the Feds are now moving to dismiss some deportation cases in Texas in what some are calling ‘backdoor amnesty’.

Given this ‘get out of jail for free’ card, lets look at one example of how illegal immigrants drive up costs and how this would be completely unfair, not only to U.S. citizens who pay into the system, but also those who come to the U.S. legally.

One year ago, Carol Plato, an executive director of Martin Memorial Medical Center in Florida, gave a briefing on the specific costs and liabilities hospitals incur when they knowingly treat illegal immigrants.

Besides hearing the outrageous itemized costs that Carol lists, even more outrageous is that one of the illegal immigrants treated was deported — after racking up millions of dollars in legal fees– and is now suing the hospital.
