Mexican mom gives birth in BP helicopter

Mexican mom gives birth in BP helicopter The Arizona Daily Star
This story and others I've read recently continue to anger me. There's the story about OTM's (other than Mexicans) where it's catch and release so the number of illegals from South America and Central America are emboldened by the policy of not detaining these illegals. This was in a story from Harlingen, TX. Then of course there's the smuggling of Iranians into the US.

Note from this story:

Elva Hernández said she and her family arrived first at Nogales, Sonora, where they hooked up with a smuggler whom they paid $4,500, the first half of the fee he charged to take them to Chicago.

Over five weeks they made six failed attempts to cross at Nogales, Naco, Agua Prieta and San Luis, before their seventh attempt near Sasabe, Sonora, the morning of May 28.

The Illegals know if they just keep trying they will finally make it. Course this time things worked out a bit different, but the result is still the same. There's now another "anchor" baby.

Then we hear from DOHS official:

William N. Johnston, who heads the Department of Homeland Security's Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services in Tucson, said Christian's birth on U.S. soil makes him a U.S. citizen under the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

When the child turns 21, he can petition to legally bring his parents and siblings to the United States.

Here's what Johnson says that disturbs me:

"It's an unfortunate part of U.S. policies," said Johnston. "If the law would permit her to stay and work she would pay her hospital fees and the taxpayers wouldn't have anything to complain about. But instead she will be deported with the newborn."
Johnson has no business in this job when he makes statements such as this. I would conclude that Johnson believes there should be no borders. Just open them up. Why would someone with this belief work in border patrol?

Course there's the problem with who pays for the hospital costs:

She and the premature baby, Christian, a new U.S. citizen, were taken to Tucson's University Medical Center. The infant is stable, but remains in intensive care. Hernández left the hospital Tuesday.

"It's a miracle that we're alive," said Hernández, a native of Jalapa, Veracruz. Her husband, Primitivo Bautista, 32, and their two older sons, Alejandro, 14, and Daniel, 12, along with their niece, Luz María Hernández, 12, were staying at the Ronald
McDonald House last week awaiting Christian's release.

The Mexican consul in Tucson arranged their stay at the house, which provides no-cost temporary shelter to families of children with special medical needs.

The cost of Christian's medical care is still unknown, said UMC spokeswoman Katie Riley. But with neonatal emergency-room care costs of up to $3,000 a day, the total can mount quickly.

If the family can't pay the bill, it will be absorbed by the hospital and passed on to consumers and taxpayers.

So now The Ronald McDonald House is used by Illegal Mexicans. I just wonder if there were any Legal US Citizens who were denied the use of the RM House because of illegal Mexicans?

There was a story I saw on the local news yesterday which talked about a Fort Worth School District looking at requiring ALL principles to be fluent in Spanish. The reporter spoke with parents from the school district all of whom were talking about Spanish as the primary language with English as the secondary (none of the Mother's interviewed spoke ANY English) language. This is not the United States of the Melting Pot this is a multicultural approach which will dilute the culture into a Balkan type culture and it looks to me like that is already the situation along the Mexican/U.S. Border.

Guess these thoughts and opinions of mine would be considered "racist" and bigoted by those of the left. I still never get the "racist" accusation when talking about Mexicans since Mexican isn't considered a race. I know many people would read this story and think, oh but these are just the kind of "immigrants" we want. No, they are law-breakers and I don't want a law-breaker as a neighbor. The MSM always refers to illegals as immigrants instead of illegal aliens because it sounds better. Then there's the argument, but they take jobs nobody else will take. Illegals depress wages thus furthering the fallacy of jobs nobody else wants.
