Mexico to US: the illegal aliens we sent aren't hurting your healthcare system

Rarely does the WashTimes bury the lede, but they've done so with "Illegals require health services".

A study sponsored by the University of California and by the National Population Council of the Government of Mexico purports to show that illegal aliens don't use emergency room services more than others, and thus are not dragging down our healthcare system. In other words, what's actually happening in California and elsewhere is not happening at all.

According to the study:
fewer than 10 percent of Mexicans living in the U.S. legally or illegally for less than a decade visited an emergency room in the past year

Among those living in the U.S. for more than a decade legally or illegally, nearly 14 percent visited an emergency room during the past year
However:
Dr. Todd Taylor, an emergency physician at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix, said he thinks the study was conducted improperly because it excludes people younger than 18, a large segment of the legal and illegal populations that use emergency rooms.

"Of the 3.9 million Mexican-headed households, almost 70 percent include immigrants under 18," he said. "If a proper analysis were done, I think what you're going to find is the Mexican immigrant population [emergency-room use] is fairly close [to that of U.S. citizens and Mexican-Americans as] other studies have shown."
The article also has the thoughts of an apologist:
"I think [illegal aliens burdening the healthcare system is] a myth," said Michael Freedman, outreach medical director at Anne Arundel Medical Center's Annapolis Outreach Center. "For the most part, people that are coming over here, particularly illegally, have a pretty arduous trip to get into this country, and by nature of that trip have to be a pretty healthy person."
Now, what does that remind you of? It vaguely reminds me of this. While hardly an exact match, there are enough parallels that Dr. Freedman might want to think about this whole subject in a bit more depth.

anyone working in any kind of healthcare system can tell you that 90 percent of the poor who come-in-to, the system are from mexico of some hispanic country, the fact is this is the plan of the mexican government ( al qaeda operative ) to take down the system of all of this country so the system will be dismantlied and the people's of the third world government's can use it for mass recomnquista for the ideals of the hispanic oligarchies who now are married into the white U.S. Oligarchies, the evil platform is set into place and is being orchestrated by our own government, bush talks about freedom but what he means is total mass murdered and the total enslavement of all people.

but above all things remember its the white rich of the world who want you enslaved and want mass death for control of billions of the little people of this good earth. death to the enemies of freedom.
