Dr. John Robertson vividly remembers the well-dressed woman from Iran who threw a tantrum at Los Angeles County's Harbor-UCLA Medical Center because sicker patients had been scheduled for heart surgery ahead of her. "She told me I had to do the surgery within two weeks because she had businesses to run in Iran and had to get back," Robertson recalled. "I said, 'Well, this is ridiculous. Are you seriously suggesting that I kick American residents out of line so you can have your surgery?'

Medi-Cal's system of qualifying illegal immigrants for benefits was designed to encourage them to seek care and to calm fears of deportation. But the provisions inadvertently opened the door to abuse by foreign patients who are neither impoverished nor residents of California--key requirements for Medi-Cal eligibility. The guidelines were devised to comply with federal and state laws that require Medi-Cal to pay for emergency, prenatal and obstetrical care for illegal immigrants.

On the race track, California's horse trainers take a back seat to no one. For the last eight years, three California- based trainers--Laz Barrera, Charlie Whittingham and Wayne Lukas--have led the nation in purses won. Lukas broke Whittingham's record last year, then this year broke his own record, becoming the first trainer to go over the $6-million mark. In the 1970s, Whittingham led the country for four straight years and since then has added three more titles.

The true agenda for those seeking driver's licenses for illegal aliens is coming clear (April 9). Despite all their arguments that they only want illegal aliens to be able to legally drive in California, advocates now oppose any indicator on a legal driver's license that the bearer is residing in the country illegally. Obviously, they want the state to join in their conspiracy to thwart federal laws against illegal immigration and the hiring of illegal immigrants and could not care less about whether illegal aliens are legally driving in the state.

The accident occurred about 1:35 p.m. on Interstate 5 south of the Border Patrol checkpoint when the northbound pickup began changing lanes as he apparently attempted to see if the Border Patrol checkpoint was operating, the CHP said.

State and federal officials said Friday that the Clinton Administration budget contains another $400 million in health care grants and that California would get more than half that money to help care for its burgeoning immigrant and refugee population. The new program, tucked into the Health and Human Services Department, would provide discretionary Medicaid grants to states whose health facilities "serve disproportionately high numbers of undocumented aliens."
