I didn’t realize we HAD a door that could be slammed shut.
Everyone comes here illegally, takes free medical care from the taxpayers and then complains....
The US has NOT undermined the family unit. The ILLEGALS are undermining their own family units’
I’m so tired of these bleeding heart stories underscoring the heartlessness of having an immigration policy.
Look, when you enter a country illegally, especially with children, YOU are solely responsible for the repercussions.
And I’d also like to know who is picking up the tab for the medical care provided. Funny how that’s missing from this story...
it is a sad story but the fact is that she is here illegally receiving care free , when there are legal people who need care also and are denied
There will be many sob stories about separating families of illegals in a effort to get amnesty passed
the parents should just cross illegaly like the other 15 million
I did not see why the parents were not granted entry. Did I miss something?
I'm sorry if I sound heartless -- but she snuck into this country, she separated herself from her family, not us.
Tough tacos...no sympathy here
And why hasn’t the Catholic Church offered to transport the dying woman back to Mexico so she can be with her parents in her dying days? Medical care shouldn’t be an issue, this newspaper has told us time and time again how wonderful national health care is, and Mexico has been operating with a national health care system for over a decade.
And oddly, the young child is only identified as being the daughter of the husband, not ‘their daughter.’ Nor any mention as to when the couple were married. And the husband is noted to be making efforts to go back to work, rather than continue offering hospice care for his wife who never happened to take his name.
I’m going to have to suspect that this is one of the many sham marriages done under the assumption that an anchor baby automatically confers legal stay for anyone and everyone who happens to trip into a relationship to them. That she was kicked out of the hospital for an elective surgery when it was discovered that she lied on her paperwork, and her reaction was to enter into a sham marriage under the assumption that this would suddenly change things, and then was told it was now inoperable.
Huh, appears her assumption was right if she underwent all those scans to establish that it was inoperable, using medical care I’m pretty sure she never paid for, likely by using her relationship to her husband and his daughter.
She came her illegally, her father came her illegally and was deported. Their problem is self-created and I have absolutely no sympathy for their situation.
The hospital discharge indicated she should get surgery in Mexico. Why didn’t she? Her parents could have cared for her and the child while her husband worked and applied to bring her back legally.
The husband, who has a Green Card, and is awaiting citizenship, should be stripped of his Green Card and deported by violating US laws by harboring a felon - I.e., a person who is in the country illegally.
Oh, so families are important? Were they important when it was ok to sneak into the country illegally, putting all family members at risk?
I’m sick of the media having no opinion of illegal immigration until they flush out some story about how the government is using immigration laws to heartlessly divide families. Bouillabaisse! If your loved ones are sooo important to you, keep your ignorant ass in your own country until you can immigrate legally. Apparently if you love your family, then there are worse things in life than not living in the US.
Follow the law and be punished, break the law and be rewarded. Hank Reardon would not be surprised.
"What you got there?"
"Oh the usual daily feed.. ten thousand or so tragic stories of citizens dying young and many with no hope of seeing their families in time.. ho hum.. wait! What's this?"
"What is it?"
"U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have denied a couple's agonizing plea again and again -- all because of our outdated, harsh, bigoted, racist, mean-spirited immigration laws.. Hot Damn! How's this for a headline: 'U.S. slams the door on parents hoping to see dying daughter'?"
"Get a hold of that PR firm that the immigration rights groups use.. see how much this is worth to them. Hot damn!"
I saw this in a chat one time.
This is the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave someone needs to clarify to these stupid people what the Free actually means!
>> ... so families can stay together, especially in times of crisis
I agree. I am 100% in favor of families staying together... in the country where they are legal citizens. By all means! Stay together in MEXICO.
