Arrow Mexican citizen? Need heart surgery, but do not want to pay for it? Cross the border and turn yourself into ICE!

ICE will now offer immigration detainees heart surgery, psychiatric care, cancer biopsies and more (on our dime, of course).

Unfreaking real. 'Not providing the proper level of care to those in govt. detention'? Don't detain them any longer than it takes to punt them back across the border.

The constitutional decision is correct. Once in the state's custody, the state assumes responsibility for them, including medically. That's only proper.

If the state wishes to absolve itself of responsibility, it needs to better enable ICE to get rid of illegal immigrants as expediently as possible through prompt deportation. That's also only proper.

Didn't I just say that? Expedite their return to their country of origin.

Yeah, I wasn't responding to you, mom- I had the post up in an earlier window, and replied without seeing your post first.

There is a clinic here that only deals with Hispanics. They don't accually say that but all of their forms are in Spanish and you need to speak Spanish to work there. I called there once and the phone is answered in Spanish and when I answered in English I ws told they had no openings for patients at that time.
