Letter: How is he supporting himself?

Marty Lich

Having read the article about the illegal alien who does not receive taxpayer-funded health care, and the subsequent two letters, I have one comment and one question.

He is incorrectly identified as “undocumented.“ Factually he is documented, by name (Eduardo Franco Ramirez) and by surgeon records and emergency department at the University of Colorado Hospital records.

Second, if, as he states, he cannot work since his free emergency care, how is he supporting himself right now in our country?

Refer to this quote “Without the surgery, he can’t work to support himself or his family.”

He has remained living here illegally for the past 1 and 1/2 years while unable to work, per this article. So I do wonder, how is he supporting himself right now?

After all, apartments do cost money as does food.
