it wouldn't have happened if he hadn't broken the law. Pity.

Had he been injured in the military, I would have some sympathy.

Send him home, with his wife and baby

If that was a Legal US citizen without insurance they would have been pushed out into the street in a wheelchair. Send the ILLEGAL and his wife and anchor baby to jail. Then arrest his employer for tax fraud, because you know the Illegal is being paid under the radar of the tax man.

Mexico provides free medical to their citizens. As a citizen, he qualifies. Americans that can't pay their bills are sent home. Now he deserves what Americans are forced to do. Will it be fair to close the hospital so illegals can drain us dry? I feel for his family but his health care is not America's problem. If the churches are so upset with this let them pay. Illegals from any country should be treated like we Americans are. We have to pay for ourselves and them. This insanity has to stop. Our laws must be enforced. Deport and oust Obama NOW!!!Vote Herman Cain in 2012.

“The Americans that hired him didn’t have a problem. Now for them to want to throw him back because he doesn’t have the money to pay for it, I think that’s irresponsible on America’s part,” she said.

Sorry, it is not the "Americans" that hired him!!! You should go after the American(!) that hired him! Oh, and good luck with that! I am sure there are no records of you common law "husband" ever having been there!

Question: What were you thinking when you hooked up with an illegal alien and had a baby from a man you speaks minimal English?

This is good in a way, as a result, you know a lot of Spanish. This will serve you well as you take baby with you and hubby back to, you guess it, mexico. OR, you could go on welfare (if not already), work under the table and send remittances to him in mexico. This is what happens when you make these kinds of decisions and expect others to solve it!

Why shouldn't they be wanting him to leave? he's costing us alot of money and could end up being the reason UTMB going bankrupt in the near future! Had he not been here ILLEGALLY THIS WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED!!! So put him on the next bus to the border with other illegal deportees and let Calderon deal with it. All deportees are his business as they are mexican citizens, and if his border patrol were doing their job all his citizens wouldn't be leaving his country, which is rather embarrassing when Mexicans feel the need to leave their country inspite of the dangers along the borders. Shame on him for not protecting his own people, and for encouraging them to come here!!
