Penis Pumps for Illegals?

Todd Starnes, Fox News, July 12, 2010

A Minnesota town is outraged over reports that an illegal immigrant was implanted with a penis pump–paid for by taxpayers.

Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate said the expense to taxpayers was more than $50,000.


Ciliberto [Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto] told county commissioners the cost of taking care of illegal immigrants in their community is skyrocketing.

“It should be obvious when Scott County goes from seven bookings in 2006 to 90 bookings in 2009–that Arizona’s problem is Minnesota’s problem, too,” he told the newspaper.

According to published numbers, the county spent more than $800,000 housing inmates with immigration holds–and that doesn’t include medical coverage.


Regardless, local officials said they are required by federal and state laws to provide welfare to illegals–from court costs to health care–including a penis pump.


“My hats off to Arizona, to people who’ve said, ‘We’ve had enough,'” Commissioner Barbara Marschall told the newspaper. “We’re thousands (of) miles away from the southern border. It’s here and it’s going to get worse.”
