Bill proposes licensing undocumented immigrants to practice medicine
LA Business Journal ^ | May 12, 2014 | by Scott Bridges

Posted on 05/13/2014 11:25:00 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Doctors must provide a Social Security number as part of the application process to practice medicine in California, a process that automatically denies undocumented immigrants from participating.

A bill by Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), which passed the state Senate on Thursday, could provide those immigrants an opportunity to practice not only medicine but other professions, as well, easing the licensing process for psychologists and pharmacists, other healthcare professionals, and for about two dozen other occupations including real estate agents and security guards.

is this a solution in search of a problem? Do we really have a serious problem with illegal alien doctors not being able to become licensed American doctors? I find this hard to believe.

Perfect solution. Just mandate that these new doctors are for the exclusive use of members of Congress, the Senate, the office of the President, their immediate families, and all the pages and assistants who work on Capitol Hill.

I thought this had to be done by the Feds. Dealing with illegal alien criminals is their gig. If Arpaio can’t arrest and deport the invaders, Cauliphonya sure as hell can’t license them to be doctors, lawyers, etc. This is BS. Somebody needs to go to jail.

It had to be California. The legislation here is out of control nuts.

A great big THANK YOU to all of my dumber-than-crap-but-holier-than-thou neighbors.

Inherent in the concept of licensing is the core assuption that the person being licensed abides by the laws and practices they are being licensed for. If someone is unwilling to abide by our nations laws from the get-go, why should we assume they will abide by the standards set forth by their field? If they are living here undocumented they probably have some sort of fact ID. How do government agencies license someone with fake ID? If they are living a lie, how do we know if what they claim to be trained, educated, and certified in in their own country is even true?

If we hadn’t been using quotas to BLOCK the best and brightest from entering medicine for the past 30 years, we wouldn’t have this problem in the first place.

I have no idea how many illegal aliens are physicians in other countries. I do know however that the reason why many physicians here legally from other countries have trouble getting state medical licenses is because they cannot pass the rigorous US licensing exams. I also know that we have a shortage of primary care doctors that is only getting worse…so what you will have is Americans forced onto Obamacare exchanges who will have to see “doctors” from other countries who don’t speak their language and who aren’t competent to take out a splinter.

well, folks are already going to Mexico and South America allowing unlicensed “doctors” to perform plastic (vanity) surgery on them....and we’ve all read the outcome of many of those procedures! why not let them have the same results closer to home?

Cheap Horrible Illegal Non-Degree Doctors will be the Backbone of Obamacare since any Doctor who refuses to w3ork for Obamacare or insist on cash only will be thrown in Jail like we are Cambodia during the rise of Khmer Rouge...

Unless constitutionally indefensible federal Obamacare Democratcare forces people to use illegal immigrants as doctors, I say let the buyer beware.

californians LOVE criminal illegals that fecalize
their food, and they will LOVE criminal illegals
that do not even wash their hands for the gringos
and dhimmis.

The EXEMPT of course, will see American trained
doctors and be flown EXEMPT-Kennedy State to whatever
state is needed.

That’s right. It is axiomatic that competent, *ethical* doctors would not be willing to work within the confines of what will be “allowed” under obamacare. That leaves the ones who agree to conform. *shudder*

This is great!

Now those doctors in Tijuana and Juarez can sneak into the US and practice their enema therapy for terminal cancer patients.

Ah, I see you've found the new fundamental operating theory of American jurisprudence: the law only matters when those in power wish it to matter.

Hey, given the Republican refusal to really push for repeal [or defunding], instead insisting on fixing it, it wouldn't be incorrect to call it Republicancare either.
