Millions of Americans Flood Into Mexico for Health Care

I wrote about this town in Mexico back in July of 2017 when I posted an article titled, “Cross-border Dental Care in Mexico.”

As the Truthout.com article implies, this is a caravan that no one hears about, and would be closed down if the Orangutan, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Fox News, and Pat Buchanan (he called for a wall on the Mexican border back in 1992 when he challenged the late President George H.W. Bush for the GOP nomination. See Kornacki’s book, The Red and the Blue, page 152) get their way.

Here is the Truthout.com’s article:

The US’s “dental refugees” flock to Mexico in the thousands every day, seeking affordable care.

    It is unfortunate that the title to this article is misleading. Millions of Americans do go to Mexico every year for business and pleasure. The title seems to imply that millions go to Mexico for dental treatments or medical travel and that simply is not true. The actual number of dental an medical tourists is certainly in the tens of thousands or perhaps even hundreds of thousands but far short of millions. The credibility of the story is undermined by this misleading title. Too bad.

    Richard’s Note: The title of the Truthout article does not reflect my view, nor does it conform to the actual numbers of people crossing the border for dental care. As this is from a political publication, they are exaggerating to make a point about health care costs.
