Report: Illegals Cost Calif. Hospitals $1.25 Billion Annually

California hospitals provide about $1.25 billion annually in uncompensated care for illegal aliens, a new report from the California Hospital Association says, with $26 million in Ventura County alone. That grim news appears in the Ventura County Star.

According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), Americans nationwide coughed up nearly $11 billion in 2010 to provide medical care for illegal aliens and their children.
