For Illegal Immigrant, Line Is Drawn at Transplant

Dec 21, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Asia Pacific News .Net

He was also an illegal immigrant. So when his younger brother volunteered to donate a kidney to restore him to normal life, they encountered a health care paradox: the government would pay for a lifetime of dialysis, costing $75,000 a year, but not for the $100,000 transplant that would make it unnecessary.

They can go to Mexico w/o sneaking. After all, he is probably a Mexican citizen. I know this comes as a shock but it is OK to say no to illegals. After all, they are saying "NO" to our laws every day they are here. The choice as I see it, is they go to Mexico and pay, or they find a way around it and I pay.

Yes, they are in a catch-22; so the fairest solution is to stop dialyses. I am probably paying for that, too. If this is heredity, what happens to the brother who gives up a kidney?

Life is tough, stop whinning and take responsibility for breaking our laws.
