Default My Heart It Bleeds ..Kidneys For Illegals

Without a new kidney, Jesus Navarro will die.
Although the Oakland man has a willing donor and private insurance to pay for the transplant, he faces an additional hurdle in the race to save his life: He is an illegal immigrant.
That fact prompted administrators at UC San Francisco Medical Center to refuse to transplant a kidney from Navarro's wife because they cannot be sure he will receive adequate follow-up care.
Their decision taps into the tension between health care and immigration policies in the state and the role medical professionals should play in trying to save the lives of undocumented residents.
Though no data are available, anecdotal evidence suggests clinics sometimes perform the transplants on illegal immigrants, especially when the patients are young. In one high-profile case, UCLA Medical Center gave an undocumened woman three liver transplants before she turned 21.
Administrators also reject patients because of their immigration status, though these patients tend to lack insurance. Bellevue Hospital in New York attracted attention last year when it refused to transplant a kidney between brothers because they could not pay for the operation.
Navarro's supporters say they are not asking a hospital to donate care or seeking to take an organ from a legal resident in need. But as an illegal immigrant, the 35-year-old father is ineligible for billions of dollars the federal government sets aside annually to treat patients like him.
Should he lose his private insurance or be deported, his donated kidney could go to waste.

Not to say this guys life is worth less than anyone else's because of his immigration status....
But I can't help but wonder how many people are killed in this country every year by illegals that shouldn't even be here?

If we stopped them from coming here, we wouldn't need to read these stories. All the medical system cares about is money anyway.

What business doesn't? Just like the banks and the car makers. When they run out of money it will become the tax payers burden.

This doesn't seem like emergency medical care... Of course it's serious, but it's not an accident, catastrophe or other immediate, unforeseen emergency situation.
Send him back to Mexico and let that country deal with giving him the care he needs, on their dime.

Mexico drug gangs kill thousands of thier rivals each year.

They could at least make a little money on the side by selling the organs after the beheadings are finished.

At some point, the Mexican Government is going to have to get serious and realize there is a civil war in their country.

At some point, the United States Government needs to realize the same thing, and do what every other country in the world does when their neighbor is in a state of war: secure the border.
