Margie sent this excellent discussion about immigrants, the taxes they pay, and the care the do (or do not) receive in return, with additional comparison to overall insured’s VS uninsured’s costs to the system and taxpayers.

This article seems to indicate a Health care system fiscal surplus from the immigrant sector, which, if reports of social security pay-in vs pay-out to immigrants are true (and i havent seen strong evidence to the contrary) combine to make immigration an economically good thing. And thats not even considering the “Day without a Mexican” scenarios of labor, construction, textiles, and the like.

The comments are well worth reading, as well.

thanks margie!
