STUART, Fla. All sides agree on one thing in the strange case of a South Florida hospital that secretly repatriated a seriously brain injured patient back to Guatemala.

During the early hours of a steamy July 2003 morning, Martin Memorial Medical Center chartered a private plane and sent 37-year-old Luis Jimenez back to the Central American country without telling his relatives in the U.S. or Guatemala even as his legal guardian frantically sought to stop the move.

i find it incredibly offensive that the immigrant's family is suing the hospital after receiving 1.5 million dollars in free care. if they get any money, THEY should be sued for recovery of that money for the taxpayers.

Instead of trying to get money out of Guatemala the Country should be forced to take back the equivalent number of Guatemalans that use 1.5 million dollars in stolen social services. Fair trade.
