Some will die. Others will end up blind and crippled for several decades. It's this latter group that will cost someone big bucks.

Therein lies the problem. Why should U.S. taxpayers be responsible for the medical treatment of illegal aliens? Send them home, and let their countries of origin provide their needs.

That would be one solution. Another would be to give them the dialysis treatments and let them continue in their U.S. jobs.

Who should pay for their treatment; and why should they be permitted to “illegally” continue to work?

Americans first. Besides: since so many people would love to move here to the USA---------we can pick and choose whom we let in. If a bunch of illiterate/poor Mexican, etc. nationals are aced out---------tough!

Because we need people willing to work. To work hard, taking the place of lazy, bottom rung U.S. citizens who think they should be paid more for doing less.

We are not responsible for the world. We can barely care for our own. If illegal aliens cannot afford to pay for their dialysis or other medical treatment, they should return home. It’s bad enough we are forced to support our own parasites; we certainly don’t need more.

We have more than enough hardworking citizens. However, they will not work for “slave” wages, nor should they.

Apparently many of the bottom rung workers are not worth what they think they are. If they have no skills they will never progress much higher than minimum wage. Just about the amount that many illegal aliens are willing to take for an honest day's work.

(My compassion of any kind for illegals is somewhat inoperative...)
I agree with this. Except maybe for the word "somewhat".

And just where is your proof of any of this? Just because some greedy employers hire illegal aliens rather than bottom of the rung American workers doesn't prove anything. In fact it is common knowledge that they hire illegals to increase their profits and that is all there is to it.
