US hospitals send hundreds of immigrants back home
Days after they were badly hurt in a car accident, Jacinto Cruz and Jose Rodriguez-Saldana lay unconscious in an Iowa hospital while the American health care system weighed what to do with the two immigrants from Mexico.
The men had health insurance from jobs at one of the nation’s largest pork producers. But neither had legal permission to live in the U.S., nor was it clear whether their insurance would pay for the long-term rehabilitation they needed.
So Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines took matters into its own hands: After consulting with the patients’ families, it quietly loaded the two comatose men onto a private jet that flew them back to Mexico, effectively deporting them without consulting any court or federal agency.
Smith: Senate Strikes Out on Immigration Proposal
Congressman Smith issued the below statement today criticizing the Senate’s amnesty proposal.
Congressman Smith: “It’s three strikes and you’re out for the Senate’s immigration proposal.
First, it legalizes almost everyone in the country illegally before the border is secured. This, of course, will encourage even more illegal immigration.
“Second, it puts the interests of foreign workers ahead of the interests of American workers. The immigration plan allows millions of illegal immigrants to compete with American workers, driving down their wages.
“And third, it treats illegal immigrants better than those who have played by the rules and waited their turn in line to come to the United States. Illegal immigrants get legal status immediately. The law-abiding—well, they just have to continue waiting.
“I don’t think the American people are going to give the Senate another turn at bat.”
Illegal Immigrant Apprehended at Border: ‘Obama’s Gonna Let Me Go’
It seems even illegal immigrants seeking to cross over the U.S.-Mexico border are following the current immigration debate. Linda Vickers, who owns a ranch in Brooks County, Texas, told WOAI that she witnessed one man being arrested on her ranch and that he told the border agent Obama would let him go.
“The Border Patrol agent was loading one man up, and he told the officer in Spanish, ‘Obama’s gonna let me go’,” Vickers said.
Meanwhile, Border Patrol agents report that some immigrants will even ask, “Where do I go for my amnesty?” while they are surrendering.
