You get no argument from me. But then we both know that when it comes to illegal aliens receiving special treatment in America, technicalities is nothing more than a word.

And, I think I know why he's on the transplant list. Given his "special" status, they want to have additional organs available in case he rejects his wife's kidney. They certainly can't treat him like a citizen who would have to hope and pray for a successful transplant. They can't risk a problem, because then, La Raza, LULAC, MALDEF and probably the ACLU, would file a multi-million dollar lawsuit claiming gross negligence due to his "undocumented" status.

Kidney transplants don't come by easy. My gripe is what if their were an American Citizen that needed that kidney as well. Who is paying for this Us. Seems to me if they are illegals, break our laws, commit crimes here, but we cater to them, when it really matters, should we not do the same thing dang it for our citizens.

But we cannot really come down on those who break our laws, the illegals, because should we not have politicians in the W.H. who should care about this matter. Those in power, should show us American Citizens, that being born in this Country, really does count for something. Right now, appears not, illegals have gamed the system.

Sadly, you are 100% correct. Either way it is a win, win situtation for them and the illegals who are sure to come with transplant demands in the future. Americans on the waiting list will simply wait at the back of the line in SOL status.

Guess we can add this to that itemized list of "where my tax dollars go" they are discussing in the POC forum.

I'm rather suspicious about that wife's kidney. Not very likely she just happened to have the perfect HLA match. Unless he married his sister?

More likely she offered a kidney but isn't a match so he will get a kidney that will be denied an American citizen instead.

Oh yes, I see that my suspicions are correct:

UCSF still may do Jesus Navarro kidney transplant


Navarro, originally from Mexico, has been waiting for a kidney for six years and undergoes nightly dialysis. His wife, Karen, hopes to be able to donate a kidney.


While UCSF officials would not go into detail, they did assure Navarro and his supporters this week that he had not lost his position on the waiting list and that they would work with him to develop a plan that would allow him to move forward with surgery.


UCSF has about 5,000 patients on the waiting list, and the hospital is able to transplant fewer than 350 a year.

The real problem, according to transplant organizations, is that there are too many people waiting for too few organs.


Waiting list????? Didn't they first claim that he would get a kidney from his wife? If so there would be no need for him to be on any waiting list.

This criminal illegal who has no respect for the laws of this country is going to get a kidney that an American citizen will not get. And the scumbags lied about his wife donating the kidney. An illegal gets to be one of the 350 (along with other illegals) who get a kidney, tough luck for the other 4,650 who will go without.

And how many people will be much LESS likely to donate organs, their own or their children, knowing that as American citizens, they would have far less chance of getting an organ if they needed one than foreigners living here illegally who will of course need the government to pay for their medicines?

It's all become nothing but political correctness, let the American patients die but cater to the illegals. 5000 people in one hospital need a kidney, only 350 will get one - how many of those 350 are here illegally?

I had that same suspicion. And, now I see how this disgusting plot thickens. . . .

There are 5,000 patients on the waiting list. Yet, an illegal alien, someone who has no right to be here, goes to the front of the list? What the hell is wrong with this country? This really boils my blood.
