Mexican Medics Take Sick To US Wash. Times
PANDERING TO HISPANICS
An Employer in Hot Springs, Arkansas hired a person to come in and give Spanish Lessons to the English speakers who were in the most likely position to communicate with the Spanish speakers. While the company said it would be helpful to know the language of the Spanish-speaking employees, there were no plans to give English lessons to the Mexican Workers. One English-speaking worker states that after about 20 lessons for us dumb English speakers the lessons were scrapped. Several reasons were given as official but the real reasons were that the English speakers said, "Why should we learn their language when they're going to be here, then by-golly, LEARN ENGLISH. The Burden shouldn't be on us to learn "their" language."
According to the Fort Smith Times Record, Arkansas State Senator Ruth Whitaker (Republican) intends to broadcast her daily "Senate events" report in Spanish. Barbara McCutchen stated "It is just this kind of thing that encourages the illegal invasion and the flaunting of our laws, not to mention the destruction of our American/Western Culture. It is well known that much of the Hispanic population is illegal and that politicians, who pander, do so for votes and/or for the cheap labor advocates. It is also obvious that aliens who refuse to learn English and demand services in their native languages have no desire to be good Americans and assimilate onto our culture, preferring instead to cling to their own while reaping the benefits of ours. Twenty seven percent of all prison inmates are alien felons and nearly 1/3 of immigrants are receiving government aid. All they have to do is waltz across our borders and our "compassionate" politicians enable them to achieve their goals. We are the ones being betrayed, used and abused by self-serving government agents and we are sick of it.
Phyllis Schlafly writes, "While Americans without health insurance struggle with the problem of how to pay for medical care, Mexicans don't have that problem. They just ride in a Mexican ambulance across the border to a hospital in Arizona, New Mexico, California or Texas and get free medical treatment. The costs are currently paid by a combination of socking the taxpayers in those Border States plus inflating prices for patients who pay their own bills, insurance companies and Medicaid. This ridiculous situation is caused by a combination of US officials allowing the Mexicans cars to cross our border and the federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, which mandates that US hospitals with emergency room services treat anyone who shows up for care, including illegal aliens. This unfounded mandate was legislated by a Congress that closed its eyes to the costs."
One writer says, "Look at it from their point of view. Wouldn't you really like it if a rich, prosperous nation, invited you and your entire family over for breakfast, lunch and dinner and to stay for the rest of your lives?"
