Helping and hurting.

Saturday's Washington Post had another article about the hidden costs of illegal immigration. This one was about a hospital in Silver Spring Maryland that because of the influx of illegal immigrants it is running an operating deficit of $460.000 dollars. They are treating diseases and conditions they did not see a decade ago like Malaria, infectious diarrhea and tapeworm. The hospital also spends about half a million dollars alone on translation services alone.
