Crisis exists at the border
Friday, March 22, 2019
I began my medical practice in 1964. I remember the exact day I removed the "Colored" sign in my medical clinic in Zephyrhills, Florida
I remember when all the "Insane Asylums" began closing down in the 70s.
I remember the Watts riots in Los Angeles of 1965.
But nothing beats what's going on at our southern border with Mexico right now.
Have you been there? Have you seen and examined the "Pilgrims" who have traveled thousands of miles over a wasteland with children?
It is so obvious that these desperate folks are part of a health care crisis never seen before in America. Tens of thousands, many of whom are mentally ill and impoverished, not to mention problems with drugs, learning disabilities and sexual assaults.
I can't believe that anyone with any knowledge of health care thinks we are not faced with a health care crisis of massive proportions.
It's not about politics. It’s not about a wall. It’s the only way that we must and will handle this health care crisis once and for all.
