While I feel sorry for Gustavo, he is not America's problem. Big mouthed Mindy needs to contact one of the gazillions of mexican consulates in the US and ask them to help her foot the bill for the treatment of her criminal husband if they want the surgery performed in the US. Promptly thereafter, they all need to be deported back to mexico.

I am so sick and tired of illegal aliens, their problems, delusional arrogance and demands.
Let him die and ship his carcas back to his country. BTW, make his family pay for the shipping.

well I somewhat agree with you, there was a case here in TX a Lady from EL Salvador, brought her young son for treatment in houston, well long story short she sucseeded at her own expense! but there are many of us generous, and humble americans that are willing to help out somewhat.

Typically all the complaining comes from people who make under 30grand a year, live in a trailer park, and struggle to keep up with their bills, waste money on alcohol, or just lazy people.

According to you? Because average hard-working Americans can't be opposed to illegal aliens?

Another Elitist latently racist post from a Pro-Illegal Supporter!

Let me get this straight: Working Americans are "lazy" and should allow Illegal Aliens to not only take over their professions but also be expected to utilize tax dollars to support Illegal Aliens who CHOSE to come to the U.S. to receive a surgery that many American citizens could NOT afford..

While I feel sorry for this guy, think about ALL the many American citizens out there who don't get the care they need because they don't have insurance.
Why should this guy go ahead of them??

Agreed. Unfortunately, common sense is not common or optional, amongst the ranks of the arrogant, self absorbs illegal alien population.

Are you sure you are not discussing lower class Hispanics here?

Face it: us Anglos are below replacement level birthrate now.

When did or have I ever said I support Illegal's? My respects to them, but that doesnt mean I support them.

and average Americans are just that Average! everybody just assumes everything will get handed to them. Why not go out and get what they want. As for affording health care there have always been health insurance. for just pennies a day.

Well, you just said it, they are opposed, but its all talk and no action, thats why illegals take away all CA's residents benefits. and yet they just SIT HERE typing about it, instead of talking to city councilmen, think about that whats easier complaining about it online where nothing will get done, or taking the fight to city hall?

You are either: (a) not a citizen, or (b)you are not a tax payer.

*Jeopardy contestant voice* Alex I'll take (a) for $10 million.

If you were either of the aforementioned you would know that nobody wants to work and pay taxes to support illegal alien breeders and squatters who have no right to be here.

Those who remain in and work hard to improve mexico don't want to take care of you either. Which is why they encourage millions of you, maps in hand to cross the border to drain the American taxpayers dry.
