Guess who got a good deal?

The Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center is a health care site that caters to illegal aliens. With programs such as the Prenatal Outreach (to migrant camps) and the Migrant outreach program it is very clear that the purpose of this medical group is to serve a select demographic.

Through this program the Center provides screening, medical treatment and health education to migrant and seasonal farm workers living and working in the area migrant labor camps.

In conjunction with the migrant outreach the Center intensively provides outreach to find pregnant women in the migrant camps.

This program is funded through the Washington County Commission on Children and Families.

So Washington County helps fund "outreach" to the illegal workers. Great. But what really gets me is this:

A County building was leased to VGMHC at a cost of $1 per year, allowing their grant funds to be used for remodeling rather than land purchase and construction. We continue to work with them in plans for further expansion into Beaverton. SOURCE

What business does Washington County have leasing a building for $1 a year? This is simply a workaround so that they do not have to put their subsidy of this illegal alien health care center in their budget.

That building belongs to the taxpayers. It was built at our expense and if the county is not going to use it then they should sell it at market value.

Under the left's precious "campaign finance reform" I am not allowed to buy a Cadillac and then "sell" it to my favorite candidate for $1. This limits my individual liberty to do what I want with my money and my property.

But somehow government thinks that whatever they want to do with our money and our property is just fine. What would stop Washington County from buying a bunch of vans and then "selling" them to this illegal alien clinic for $1 a piece? What would stop them from buying a thousand bicycles and selling them to citizens for $1 a piece? Does this seem screwed up to anyone else?

or maybe you are a native american. if so, i appologise. you have every right to be pissed off at european 'immigrants' taking your country off you.

I am native American, I was born here.

I am not against immigrants, I am against illegal immigrants. This is much like not being against people who use drugs like tylenol but opposing people who use drugs like cocaine.

This clinic caters to lawbreakers and our county officials give them a steal on a building. That's wrong.

OMG that's the biggest crock of crap I've heard in a long time. Do you know about this center? Do you know what it is based on? Do you know its history?

You're an evil f(*#&ck if you bash on this place without knowing those things. Basic health care, access to basic medical care, is intrinsic for all people in this country, regardless of how or where they've come from. Have you met these people? Maybe if you got out from behind your white enclave you'd discover some incredibly hard working, wonderful human beings who would like to say, give birth and not die. Is that too much to ask?

Exactly right Daniel. And don't let Mark, who by his Blogger profile is located outside of the U.S. and therefore is irrelevant as a non-taxpayer... and anonymous, who resorts to typical left-wing race-baiting and profanity when they can't make a coherent argument, get you off topic: that using taxes to fund programs for illegal immigrants is ridiculous.

It seems like there are two issues here rolled in to one big tax payer rip off: the rent of the building for $1 and the seemingly limitless capacity for governments to add enticements to come to this country illegally.

Obviously the good news is the local people probably do not have to worry about any tax increases in the near future. If their government can afford to rent out buildings for such a low sum then surely that is the definition of a fully funded government. The school system there must be amazing if they can lob building leases around in this manner. Id imagine the people their must also be of a superior nature since I would think most would be quite irked at having spent the funds to build the building only to have it leased out for $1. I know in other areas there would be consideration of a more violent nature towards those who had wasted money in such a cavalier manner.

On the second issue – you can’t really assume that everyone in a migrant worker camp is here illegally. However it would be ridiculous to pretend that this isn’t a major area of tenuous, at best, citizenship. The line of government agencies and advocacy groups that line up to shower benefits on people who are by definition lawbreakers is astounding. It would be nice, if just once, this kind of emphasis could be put on people who are here legally and are trying to be productive. I have a dream – I wake up one morning and the government has done this same deal, established a medical clinic to serve a particular class. It’s free, and no one will ask any questions if you go there. It’s the “Self Employed Guys Clinic”. Imagine this kind of effort going to people who actually provide jobs, work far longer hours than most ( yes more than even the holiest of holy noble illegal alien ), get taxed at a far higher rate than most and, the worst sin of all, actually are trying to provide jobs.

For the record – I am Native American – my family has been here close to 350 years.

Yes anonymous, I always read up on the places/people/things that I post on. I try to be accurate.

I love how everyone talks about my "white enclave" or "white complex" or whatever that I live in. Have you met me anonymous? Since you don't know what you are talking about I will tell everyone that no, you haven't met me.

And R Huse said it just right, the two underlying issues at work here present us with some serious problems.

By the way, I have been looking for your blog R Huse, looks like you set one up but haven't posted yet? I would be interested to read more from you.
