U.S. Persecutes Mexicans

Marxavi Angel Martinez just wanted to use the local health clinic. Local law enforcement discovered she was in the U.S. illegally because she was using the Social Security number of a deceased individual, according to the Los Angeles Times. This has raised quite a furor.

Yawn. I have no problem with people from anywhere who want to come to the U.S. and work hard to better their life. What I do have a problem with, are people who are here in the U.S. illegally, especially when these individuals siphon social services. Martinez committed a felony. She was breaking the law while attempting to get county or state-sponsored medical services. If she had been paying for services in a doctor's office, she wouldn't have this problem.

I've had family who have had issues with the automatons in Immigration, until they found one who could actually do his job. I don't see that Martinez or her family attempted to legally stay in the U.S. when her legal status expired 20 years ago. She gets no sympathy from me.
