Conflict of interest? Gross negligence? Nope. Just speak out against free care given to illegal immigrants.

Such is the fate of a Dr. Gene Rogers in Sacramento, CA.

Here’s my favorite part of the story:

“I’ve seen cases and case histories of patients who essentially have come up from Mexico for the express purpose of being treated here, and then leaving to return home,” Dr. Rogers said. “I’ve watched illegal immigrants brazenly demand free, non-emergency health care that was meant for our poorest citizens. I’ve heard them and their families complain. They feel entitled to it.” Dr. Rogers filed a lawsuit in 2003 after county officials “stonewalled” him when he questioned why they were cutting budgets while still providing non-emergency medical treatment to people who have no legal right to be in the country.

You know, there is something wrong when you get fired for trying to uphold the law.
