No bias in this headline or article. This was nothing more than trying to legalize the illegal voting that has been going on.

Who knows, maybe Obama will authorize another two or three guardsmen to go to Arizona, somewhere up about Flagstaff, to help seal the border. They will have stay in the barracks, of course.

1. It wasn't just Republicans. Democrats control the House and Senate.
2. This wasn't a "youth immigration bill". It was for illegal aliens up to 35 years old that had to prove nothing. It also allowed for chain immigration once these illegals got in the back way. It was amnesty for illegal aliens plain and simple.
3. These people were illegal aliens who were breaking the law. The laws should be applied and enforced upon them, just like it is in every other civilized, industrial nation in the world, in regards to illegal aliens.
4. Now it's time to end the abuse of the 14th amendment and the bogus "jackpot citizenship given to children of illegals born on U.S. soil.
5. I'll never vote Democrat again, and I'm a former Democrat.

ICE will now provide heart surgery, biopsies and psychiatric care to detainees

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has agreed to begin providing medical care that goes well beyond emergency treatment, as a result of a lawsuit filed by the ACLU. The suit alleged that ICE was not treating “immigration detainees with constitutionally adequate levels of medical and mental health care.”

Among the many services which ICE will now provide illegal aliens in their custody are heart surgeries, cancer biopsies, treatment for diabetes, dental care, and treatment for mental depression.

On Thursday, Elizabeth Alexander, former Director of the ACLU National Prison Project and lead attorney in the suit said: "For the first time, ICE has committed to providing all necessary health care to immigration detainees beyond just emergency care. For too long, ICE's own policies allowed it to provide detainees with nothing beyond a narrow definition of emergency. This settlement is recognition that it is unconstitutional not to provide people in government custody with all necessary health care."

The legal action was filed in June 2007 by the ACLU and the ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties and stated that detainees at the San Diego Correctional Facility were often subjected to long waits for medical treatment and denied medication for chronic illnesses.

doesn't matter obama is patting the troops on the bakc in hawaii letting clinton make a plan for him, then when he gets back to the mainland hes gonna push for the "DREAM ACT" so its in vain that right there will ensure illegals bring their families over for a free ride too,like a family fun park!!pelosi already bought and paid for 15 million votes and with the same politics and crooked genocidal ways that have made mexico a failed american welfare state -america will be infected with the same failure!!and the ripple of this crippling wave will spread east now as it has already taken out the west coast
