At the recent PRI meeting, one loony lambasted me for failing to agree with her that all the problems of the US health care system were due to all that care bing wasted on illegal immigrants. I asked her to provide me with photographic evidence of cancer patients swimming the Rio Grande…
But a UCLA study has found that even adjusted for age and health status:
Illegal immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries are 50% less likely than U.S.-born Latinos to use hospital emergency rooms in California, according to a study published Monday in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine.
Of course this isn’t news to us wonks, but here’s a quiz for ya; which one of me and the loony will be voting in the Republican primary? That tells you lots about our health care policy options.
