Skip to comments.Bill proposes licensing undocumented immigrants to practice medicine
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.
"The secret to happiness is freedom...
And the secret to freedom is courage."
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 won't be long until we start seeing "doctors" in this country like Dr. Lexus from Idiocracy...
A great big THANK YOU to all of my dumber-than-crap-but-holier-than-thou neighbors.
Will we see the democrats pushing a bill to let illegal aliens run for political office?
Didn’t think so.
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...
californians LOVE criminal illegals that fecalize
their food, and they will LOVE criminal illegals
that do not even wash their hands for the gringos
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*
Are their credentials documented?
Please make it stop!
More Democrap insanity.
I said they would bring in Cuban Doctors
This is great!
Now those doctors in Tijuana and Juarez can sneak into the US and practice their enema therapy for terminal cancer patients.
Soon Curanderos (Mexican witch doctors) will be covered under Obamacare.
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.
