Taxpayers shell out over $2 Billion in free emergency coverage that mostly goes to illegal immigrants, according to Kaiser Health News. The major share of the money is for delivering babies of illegal undocumented women who show up in their emergency rooms, according to interviews with hospital officials. Joanne Aquilina, the chief financial officer of Bethesda Healthcare System says “We can’t turn them away,” Nearly one-third of Bethesda Hospital East’s 2,900 births each year are paid for by Emergency Medicaid, the category that covers mainly illegal immigrants nationwide.

We spend over 2 billion dollars a year to accommodate illegals who have broken the laws of our nation, so what do lawmakers do? Reward these lawbreakers with paying their bills. What will happen to the healthcare system in this country when they give amnesty to over 17 million illegals? “It’s a lose, lose, lose,” for the American taxpayer no matter how you slice it and will result in the ultimate destruction of an already unsustainable overburdened healthcare system.
