Your tax dollars at work: Illegal aliens to get free heart surgery, cancer treatment and psychiatric care

by editor on December 21, 2010

There’s nothing too good for our illegal aliens, damn it. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is now offering illegal aliens the kind of medical treatment you’d love to have if you needed it.


Free medical care for illegal aliens. It's the American way.

And we’re sure you won’t be surprised to find out it’s all because of a lawsuit by the ACLU.

The Examiner reports the depressing details:

Among the many services which ICE will now provide illegal aliens in their custody are heart surgeries, cancer biopsies, treatment for diabetes, dental care, and treatment for mental depression.

On Thursday, Elizabeth Alexander, former Director of the ACLU National Prison Project and lead attorney in the suit said: “For the first time, ICE has committed to providing all necessary health care to immigration detainees beyond just emergency care.”

So let’s choose a random country. Mexico, let’s say. You’re a potential illegal alien sitting in your casa in Michoacan when you notice a growth the size of a grapefruit on the left side of your head. This isn’t good, you think to yourself. What should I do? Should I go to the hack doctor down the street who will probably tell me to go home and kiss my wife and kids goodbye? Or should I sneak across the border where I’ll get the kind of treatment regular American citizens can’t afford?

“Hasta la vista, honey. I’ll be back as soon as those gringo doctors fix me up.”

How… dis.gus.ting…

This typeo f thing just makes me sick. I dont even understand how people do not see all the things that are wrong with this story.

byrd December 22, 2010 at 12:19 am

well, i thought crime never paid…
leave it up to the government to prove me wrong on that one.
“and hey, since were at it…lets give every criminal 1 million dollars, a house, and restore their voting rights only if they vote for us democrats!”

PS. Im seriously getting tired of us treating illegals like they have a right to be here. they need to come in legally, or get the f out.

I’m already calling my state senator tomorrow, and ripping his ass for letting gas companies spike prices 20-30 cents a gallon in one day. Now this? I can’t even afford to get a %*(&*& wisdom tooth removed, yet illegals… NON LEGAL PEOPLE…are getting health care I only dream about?

Screw being an American anymore, I’m an Illegal German Immigrant! Where’s my free heart transplant?

You know Michaelht1, this story should do a lot more than just make you sad, it should make you real mad. Mad enough to spend less time posting and more time writing to your local newspapers, or your representatives and senators; especially to the Repubs who claim to be representing us. I can think of about seven turncoat bastards/bastardettes who better wake up and smell the coffee because voting them out of office might be too good for them…

Agreed, but insomuch as I am not the head of a powerful union, or lobbyist, or can make a proposal of illegal monetary gains or enhanced power for the corrupt politicians of this state (wa.) its highly unlikely I would even be read except by one of their overstaffed, overpaid assistance who would forward me back a boilerplate email of how much they appreciate my contact and how diligently the senator is working to insure my welfare: If you really believe writing these clowns does anything except inflate their insufferable egos than you would also believe that writing to the controlled media is going to actually make a difference.
The system is beyond broke, its corrupt, 13% approval rating for our alleged leaders and they are still voted in? By special interest, unions, lobbyist and foreign interest, our leaders should be serving time at hard labor not flying around in private jets, amazing how they spend millions to get a job that pays thousands and retire as elite rich?

I was going to say “none of that sh*t has worked for decades”

There’s a reason we hate the media. They are corrupt liberals hell bent on destroying the US while sociopath congress-douches fritter away our resources and rights for small pay-offs.

A person that worked in a congressman’s office once told me that any letter recieved on company letterhead went right to the man while the letters from the common people were thrown out. Unless it was a really angry letter and then it went on a wall of shame for the wackos.

I wrote to my senators, sadly they were Boxer and Feinstein, about gun control, and got back letters months later about off-road recreation. I could have gotten a lot further banging my head on the wall.

I’d love nothing more than to see a hidden camera expose on a little scenario like that to fire people up enough to throw the rest of the POS parasites out in 2012, but that’s probably wishful thinkin’.

KimmyQueen December 23, 2010 at 1:05 pm

Uhm… I write to my senators and congress people a lot and overall they always send me a thank you letter and why they agree or disagree with my letter what they are doing in my behalf and what not… even if it is not written by them I always appreciate it…

We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless
We allow illegal aliens to enter our country, have babies that we provide FREE housing, medical care, food stamps, welfare, education that cost us broke a$$ Americans 22 BILLION a year…not to mention the thousands of Americans that have been victims of crimes and DUI’s.
In the recent past we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey.
Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid or get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour
Hundreds of Millions of $$$$$’s and Tons of Food into Foreign Countries!
We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.
USA, a country where we have homeless many of them Vets ( including the BLUE WATER NAVY personnel)( such as Commander Hass ) who have been thru a lot of trauma during their time protecting our country , poisoned by our own Government with such poisons as (AO) Agent Orange and left to rot on our city streets by our congress , most notably by one of our congress persons who heads up the vets committee she and her sister Democrat from Wa. who are both complisite in this shall remain nameless but all the Vets know who they are -without shelter, children going to bed hungry,
elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, and mentally ill without treatment – etc,etc…
They have a ‘Benefit’ for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘us’ the same support they give to other countries.
And don’t forget our new Health Care Law mandates that we all pay into it or pay a fine, or go to Jail if we don’t. Yet Illegal Mexicans and Arabs still get free Health Care in our country at our expense! It is written in the bill that way!
538 Billion on illegal Mexicans a year, so government can grow even larger?
Sad isn’t it?

Neo-7 December 21, 2010 at 10:54 pm

You make some good points.

All that evil people need to succeed is for good people to do nothing.

Are you in or are you out ?

On a lesser side note . I wonder where in the hell all that money that was raised and sent to Haiti , went to.

One of the biggest reasons why Obama says our Health Care system is broken. Go to any emergency room, especially in the west and watch the illegals file in and out like an assembly line… If we could just harvest a few organs for trade we’d be better off…

Navyvet December 21, 2010 at 6:42 pm

Anyone who thinks there is not, and has not been, freeeeee healthcare is more stupid than a rock! It make me crazy to hear to liberal pols tell their moron brainwashed followers, “waaaa. There should be free healthcare.” and these half wits believe it. Aaaarrrrgh.
Anyone who walks into our large county hospital is given all the care they want, and sometimes a lot more and it is freeeeeee, at least to the patient, sure as hell not to people who pay taxes.
As a doctor there told me one night, you “over provide or they will sue you in a second.” “I am not going to make these deadbeats millionaires.”

Michael December 21, 2010 at 6:26 pm

Not possible since the wicked witch was too busy being named to Vogue’s best dressed list.

KimmyQueen December 23, 2010 at 1:03 pm

Okay… that was hilarous!!!

NodakSuz December 21, 2010 at 4:17 pm

Is there anywhere I can get a free blood transfusion – mine just boiled out
of me after reading that. What the heck is going on in this country – wish
the ACLU would disappear with a ‘poof’ of the wicked witches wand.

YT December 21, 2010 at 3:23 pm

Well, a great way around this may be to cut ICE funding so they can only afford one surgeon.

Let the illegals try to come up here to get arrested to get worked on. Let them die waiting for their turn.

Elrond Hubbard December 21, 2010 at 3:13 pm

Wonderful. Before the ACLU sued, Mexico simply exported its unemployed citizens to the United States; now they can export their sick and crazy citizens here for First World medical care….all paid by the American taxpayer. Overcrowding in our Southwestern hospitals will become disastrous.

DJ December 23, 2010 at 12:31 am

“Overcrowding in our Southwestern hospitals will become disastrous.”

It already has and is spreading like wildfire. I love it how I have to pay the going rate (read The Shaft) for an ER visit, yet an illegal shows up and the sky’s the limit…gratis!

“Hasta la vista, honey. I’ll be back as soon as those gringo doctors fix me up.”

More like “I will go first, I will write with the new address, then come on up with the kids, heck bring your mom.”
