When immigrants sponsor in their relatives, as this woman's family did, they are required to sign an Affidavit of Support accepting legal responsibility for financially supporting the sponsored immigrant(s) until they become U.S. citizens or can be credited with 40 quarters of work. The hospital can and should sue the relatives for her costs. The Affidavit of Support usually requires the sponsor to pay medical bills out of pocket.

If the immigrant receives any "means-tested public benefits," the sponsor is responsible for repaying the cost of those benefits to the agency that provided them. If the sponsor does not repay the debt, the agency can sue you in court to get the money owed. Needless to say, our government only rarely enforces the Affidavits of Support.

No death penalty?

Read the article. She was working she did have benefits. She left the job to care for her grandchildren. I guess deciding to care for her grandchildren is pretty much proof she is lazy scum draining the taxpayer dry.

Stroke care is very expensive. Private insurance for a 58 year old woman, especially if there were health issues most likely was unaffordable. It would be unlikely for her relatives to be able to afford to pay the bill totally out of pocket all at once. Not sure what the hospital was demanding.

As it should be.

The crap is that his woman HAD insurance. Her sons used her with her explicit consent. They have masters degrees so have means, yet these maggots steal from my People... Americans for Dear ol Mom.

Sad as her position is, there is a finite amount of aid to give. I certainly do not wish to give it to these parasites. Now you who post that the Hospital should pay all cost until whenever have no moral position unless YOU are sending a BIG check to that Hospital.
