Hundreds of legal and illegal immigrants in Arizona are being sent back to their home countries, sometimes against their will, for medical treatment because they lack insurance.

Good. There are a lot of US citizens who either go broke to pay for medical treatment or opt to go overseas for cheaper medical treatment (India).
People who enter the US illegally shouldn't expect finer treatment than the average citizen gets.

I heard someone say Cuba has better medical care... maybe the illegals should go there... perhaps we should start showing Sicko in Mexico repeatedly... I wonder if they would buy that crap? If an illegal can see through that crap, it speaks volumes about the people in America...

Sounds like a GOOD THING to me, Mkfarnam.

Since I am required to pay for my Medical Care . . . why should an immigrant, Illegal or otherwise, receive FREE CARE?

I am 'self insured' as well.

The fact that I am age 50 sucks as for both availability and quality of health coverage-------my employer does not offer anything.

Is there anyone who could object to this?

It's one thing for hard working self-reliant illegals to be here, even if we don't agree with their attitude toward breaking the laws here, but what on earth is the point in having government dependent illegals?

Itís infuriating to recall a man (stroke victim) who was my dadís hospital roommate. My dad, having full medical coverage, received stellar treatment; while his unfortunate roommate (uninsured) was released from the hospital obviously still in dire need of further medical care. It was absolutely heartbreaking! Had this man been an illegal alien, he would have received all of the treatment he required, and the U.S. taxpayers would have paid his bill.

Finally, someone does something about it. Now if only all other states would follow suit.

Good point, Malamute . . . we cannot afford more dependents and drains on our economy.
