EMERGENCY ROOM HEALTHCARE FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS

Would you believe the number is a staggering $1.45 billion annually? Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Read this from United States Senator Jon Kyl:

The estimated annual cost to hospitals and other providers of emergency health care nationwide for illegal aliens is $1.45 billion. According to congressionally-commissioned research from the MTG Corporation, the annual cost to just the 24 counties along the border in Texas, New Mexico and California exceeds $200 million, and for Arizona's four border counties alone it's $32 million per year.

These unreimbursed costs, and other health-related issues, have put Arizona hospitals in a state of dire fiscal emergency. As a result, some have closed, or are in danger of having to close their emergency rooms and other services.

Will you please give signing this online petition some thought? Thank you!
