I hope it's a gringo face. Thus if he moves to AZ he won't have any problem. LOL.

it's in SPAIN (I know, it said spanish so people assume), I doubt we have a huge problem with ILLEGALS from Spain =)
and this is great news! Kudos to the doctors, team, staff and the young man!!
it's a shame that here in the US the doctors are so afraid of malpractice suits that it controls their trying new procedures.
YAY docs!

FYI - Europe has a tremendous illegal alien problem with people coming from Northern Africa and other Arab countries.

OK, EUROPE does, WE don't. And I am sure they deport them, although I do not know the laws in european countries. But I do know that if you are in ANY other country you have to carry ID or passport. I carry my ID, so does every LEGAL person in the US. It's the illegals that are crying about proving they are here legally. I think anyone that has been getting things for free for generations is going to be upset when the gravy train ends. Too bad, figure it out, go back to your country and immigrate here the legal way.
