Tragic ICE Princess “Results”: Illegal Aliens Drain Cancer Treatment for Galveston’s’ Poor

By Debbie Schlussel
If ever there was a story that told us immigration enforcement under Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) chieftess Julie L. Myers a/k/a The ICE Princess is a disaster, it’s this one:
Cancer care for the poor at University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston is in jeopardy and is being drained by illegal aliens, endangering it for the Americans.
The UTMB set aside about $12 million to treat all impoverished cancer patients, which isn’t enough because of the illegal aliens using it. The hospital does not keep track of which cancer patients it treats are “undocumented.” 21% of the uninsured in Texas are illegal aliens, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.



Cancer & Illegal Aliens: 2 Probs Metastasizing Under The ICE Princess

(Julie Myers Diet Coke by David Lunde/Lundesigns)

The hospital is considering denying medical care to illegal aliens to stop this funding shortfall and not jeopardize the health of poor American citizens there. And to that, I say, “good luck.”
The fact is that illegal aliens–as we all know–use fake documents, fake social security numbers, etc. The hospital will now have to do the job that ICE–under Julie Myers–is not doing. And unless hospital administrators and doctors want a second profession in document fraud, one wonders how they will be able to successfully detect and turn away illegal aliens. That’s not to mention the many doctors and administrators who generally know these people are not here legally but look the other way. Good luck getting them to change. And good luck with the resulting lawsuits.
I’m all for hospitals denying these illegals care. That should have happened long ago. And a federal law–requiring Medicaid and Medicare recipients to sign documents and provide proof that they are U.S. citizens–is unfortunately on hold due to illegal alien rights groups’ lawsuit against it.
But, six-plus years after 9/11, this problem should have been eradicated. It’s only getting worse.
Meanwhile, The ICE Princess is singing the same old tune–blaming her incompetence and failure on a lack of “comprehensive immigration reform” a/k/a illegal alien amnesty.
Check this out from her letter, yesterday, to the Dallas Morning News, which justifiably dissed ICE (that means her) for curtailing a successful Texas program to catch illegal aliens (because she isn’t ready?!) and put the lie to her claim that “Catch & Release” has ended (it hasn’t):

[A]bsent comprehensive immigration reform, ICE must prioritize efforts and make the best use of limited resources in the face of a seemingly limitless problem.

Um, if the problem is “limitless” and unfixable, who told you to take the helm at this agency? Oh, yeah–you picked yourself.
Essentially, she’s saying she can’t stop crime, so why enforce it.
Yes, and instead of “let them eat cake,” Myers says Let Them Die of Cancer. (Or dress up in Blackface.)
Julie, Yer Doin’ a Heckuva Job.

This is flagrant problem all over the country and has been for years. It’s only recently that it has come to the forefront as the costs of healthcare and medical treatment rises.
I can recall, about 20 years ago, when I was in the Border Patrol that an illegal tried to jump on a train and fell off, losing a leg. First off, the mope is in the country illegally because he had to jump the border to get to the train yards. Second, he was trespassing on railroad property, another criminal violation. Unforunately, the bottom line to all this was he was taken to the hospital, received medical treatment and his prosthesis at no cost (courtesy of the taxpayers), then has the audacity to sue the railroad for his injury to which they kowtowed to him and settled out of court for 6 figures. He was never held acoountable for the illegal entry because the government didn’t want to take any responsibility in the action, the railroad wimped out and set him up with a big bankroll instead of putting his ass in jail, and the rest was a free ride.
Many more cases of blatant ripoffs have taken place at hospitals in border cities where illegal women cross over, have their kids at taxpayers’ expense, and go home with a USC kid to immigrate them when he/she is of age.
The reason why this problem has gotten out of control is about the same as the illegal problem itself…nobody had the spine to do anything about it until the problem became too insurmountable and now that they want to put up a show about addressing the issue, it’s past the point of no return.
Like the old saying goes, “Don’t wait ’til you’re thirsty to dig the well.”

I am taking the liberty of fixing the sentence Julie Meyers wrote in the letters to the Editor; “Ice Talks Back” in the Dallas News:
However, absent comprehensive immigration reform, ICE must prioritize efforts and make the best use of limited resources in the face of a seemingly limitless problem.
Which should have read:
However, absent giving up and giving the invaders from Mexico Amnesty, ICE will continue to pretend that we are enforcing the immigration laws of this country by giving phony press conferences and I will feign outrage when anyone accurately illustrates my incompetence as Assistant Secretary, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
I have a staff of suck butts and ass kissers that spend all day looking for articles in the newspapers and media criticizing my job performance.
There, that’s better.

Don’t forget the fact that these illegals, as they are illegal immigrants, have not been tested for any diseases that have been eradicated in the civilized world, yet show up in prodigous numbers in border areas.

I live in Galveston, and my father used to be a doctor at UTMB. It caters to bums, the homeless, and illegal immigrants. The emergency waiting room looks like a second rate casting call for a “La Bamba” remake! They are building (have built) a big time lab to study deadly diseases, chemical and biological weapons, etc.; I would suggest that to save money, they just swab some of the chairs in the waiting room, they will find all the deadly diseases they want!!
