Surgery back in Mexico would only cost $40,000. But because Angel and his brother have already taken out loans, they would have to sneak back into the U.S. afterward to pay them back, or risk being completely cut off from their U.S. citizen children in New York.
==========
Another lie. The whole family could get together in Mexico legally, and the problem would be solved. Further, if you are working in Mexico, ALL of the Medical Bills are paid.
And the Hospitals in New York are hurting. They desperately wanted the illegal aliens included in Obama Care because the illegal aliens are using a huge amount of that American Social Service and forcing the old line New York Hospitals toward bankruptcy. Somehow or another, the American People will be forced to pay for it.. those New York Senators are good to the illegal aliens.

This article is racist at best and incendiary at worst. He is here illegally and has no option to American funded healthcare. He has known this for 2 years. What has he done to go back to Mexico and save his life. His children are citizens of Mexico. They can all go back together.
Posting this on Christmas Eve is sensationalism and politicizing illegality and law breaking. Funny the coward wouldn't show his face but he is more than willing to break our laws and take our money.

What a low life!

In your case, your mother qualifies,AND DESERVES FREE TREATMENT from tax payers money. But this illegal man?? what the he-l!! he actually believes the US populace is going to feel sorry for him and send donations for money needed? why should we, he has already been authorized $75,000 worth of after surgery treatment plus drugs (insulin) and is presently acruing more medical expenses daily as he awaits FOR A MIRACLE at government expense. This is OUTRAGEOUS!!!!! watch him die and then the hospital gets sued!! These are the people that make us dislike illegals with a passion. They have done what they can and now is Mexico's problem to take over his medical treatment and expenses. I don't hear Calderon asking for his return so they can CARE FOR HIM, HE IS THEIR CITIZEN!!! JUST WHERE ARE THE LINES DRAWN?, this is too much for our country to absorb and not CRASH. Let him die and blame the Mexican government for not enforcing their immigration laws on their own people, thus creating the masses of illegals into the US. That government has to take SOME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALLOWING THE FLOW OF INVADERS into the US.

Many AMericans die due to this, but now we are to kill our own for this Mooch Land of Mexihell. what does Mexihell do for America besides rape us in all ways? Financially, physically they rape citizens daily and now we are to die to make room for their endless breeding? Pay for them while our own die? What about all the Chinese and Sundanese? Will they be next in line in front of our own Citizens? While we sacrifice for them? This is insanity and bloodletting. Blackmail from the Carpet Baggers to the South.

This man should contact Luis Guterriez of Illinois and ask him for the money. He wants them to stay. Let ALL politicians chip in and pay. They won't do this because they believe legal Americans should pay. I am a Christian but enough is enough and too much of this crap stinks.

its the begger thinking of illegal aliens and those who support them. funny thing i have yet to see any of those supporters step up sell off all they own to pay for things like this,like all other low lifes they want someone else to pay.

I couldn't agree more, what about all of our own citizens here in the same position, what the is going on in our country that illegals take priority over US citizens??? Totally something wrong with this whole picture,wake up everybody before it's too late if it's not already too late!

ca gave a baby a liver then years later another and then another,still here illegally and getting freebees she is an adult and still taken care of.

3 Americans had to die for those livers and some who needed them died do to not getting those livers.

so they are putting illegal aliens infront of citizens. it may be hard to find out who could have used them and died.
