Yuma Regional Medical Center, the small Arizona city’s only hospital, is strained after spending $20 million taking care of migrants who came across the border in only six months.

The hospital only has 406 beds.

Dr. Robert Transchel, the hospital’s president and CEO, detailed the problems on Fox & Friends Weekend. The hospital has not received any help from the state or the federal government. He’s contacted DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who has not done anything for him:

“It’s been a long journey,” he said. “We’ve been at this for well over a year now. We tracked our uncompensated care for a period of over six months, and we calculated that we’ve provided over $20 million in uncompensated care to the migrants crossing the border.”—

“We just don’t have a payer source. Everybody is sympathetic, and everybody lends a listening ear, but nobody has a solution,” he said.

If he can't sniff it or kiss it, he's not interested.
