“I’m still trying to believe this happened to me.”… Angela Magdaleno, an illegal alien from Mexico, now living in Los Angeles with ten children.

Both Magdaleno and Anzaldo are illegal immigrants, settled for years in an immigrant enclave. Magdaleno has the same number of children as her parents, who were peasant farmers in Mexico. Like her parents, she is living in poverty and struggling to provide for her family.

“I thank this country that they gave me Medi-Cal,” Magdaleno said. “There’s nothing like that in Mexico.”

Memo to Angela: As Americans who are paying your medical bills…we can’t believe it has happened to us either.
