    Already under fire from the Right on the issue of illegal immigration, President Obama is now coming under fire from the Left for making it harder for undocumented workers to buy private health insurance.

    My colleagues, ABC News' Elizabeth Gorman and Teddy Davis, have more:

    President Obama was blasted by a top Latino ally on Monday for modifying his health-care plan in the face of conservative criticism.

    The criticism was leveled in Spanish by Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a Democrat from Illinois who was the first Latino member of Congress to endorse Barack Obama for president.

    Referring to the Obama administration, Gutierrez said: "Those who should be our friends, our allies, are more and more giving Rep. (Joe) Wilson, R-S.C., exactly what he wants to continue with this prejudice against our community."

    Gutierrez, who made his remarks in Washington, D.C., while participating in a panel discussion on immigration reform sponsored by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, was incensed by the Obama administration's announcement over the weekend that it was going to bar undocumented workers from participating in the health insurance exchange.

    They should force change in their government and stop making us bend over for them. Or we should do something about it....make Mexico a 51st state.

    "prejudice against our community."

    Jeeeeeeeeeez! The "community" you talk about Gutierrez are ILLEGAL ALIENS. Gutierrez is a racist who loves to twist words and push for a open border.

    I happen to agree with the idea that illegals should be MANDATED to buy health insurance. If Americans will be fined 3800 for not having it, so should the "undocumented"

    Unfortunately, most would be eligible for free Medicare which is what this whole issue is about.
