Dear Editor:
In response to Randolph's 12/20/02 letter, you are correct in that undocumented immigrants are only eligible for emergency medical assistance (and only if they have dependents and the condition is considered a "true" emergency), pregnant women are also eligible (if eligible by income), but only until 90 days after delivery of their US Citizen child. They contribute to a system through their work from which most are not even eligible to benefit. They work hard and long hours in jobs that most would not even last a day. Just an interesting bit of information: on the INS citizenship test, one of the questions is, "Whose rights are protected by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights?" The answer is "All those living in the US." Very interesting as our word is not the same as our deeds....Just a reflection. We are all immigrants, unless we are Native American (or Mexican in some parts of the country).
