Pretty soon, illegal aliens won't need citizenship because we will have already given the everything, plus we no longer deport them!

The logic that both sides use borders on comical. They say they contribute to the community,so they should get them. Excuse me, sales tax doesn't even come close. The real joke is how she believes that since she is getting dialysis as an illegal alien then she deserves to be on the donor list...NOT! The hospital stupidly categorizes patients as "uninsured" and makes no distinction of whether or not legal.
So if she starves to death by her own choice, what are we suppose to do? Oh, and as I understand it, weight loss is quite beneficial for diabetes...Gateraide NO! I thought people on dialysis weren't suppose to drink liquids, including water, except for chipped ice. Oh well...

I believe that she should get all the medical care she needs for free. Anything less is ugly racism. After all, she is a Special Person In Chicago.

whats wrong with sending them to their homelands and placed on lists there?

why should we keep them here when they are not only stealing tax dollars for their care it will cause death of citizens who are already on these lists.

send them home and let their own countries pay all the bills.it is foolish to keep taking from the USA and her citizens to pay for things for illegal aliens or even legal immigrants,we are not to bring in those who are or will be a public charge.

With all the murders in Mexico, they'd be able to harvest tons of organs for transplantation. What more do these leech's think they should be entitled too?Juan think's hospitals run for free. He's never payed a Hospital bill in his life. What these leech's don't realize is that for every illegal walking into our ER's their are several American citizens that aren't being attended too. They push there way into everything, and expect us, being civilized people to roll over and comply, that's the problem with niceties, they took advantage of the whole nice thing, until they ruined California, and Hospitals all across the Country now. They have no right's here and we need leaders that will finally realize what a Circus these losers have created and get rid of them once and for all.
