Healing the injured illegals that the Guatemalan government won't...

No good deed goes unpunished....

An uninsured, unlicensed illegal alien was struck and severely brain injured by a drunk driver in Florida. He was taken to the local trauma center who saved his life twice, and when it was time to transfer him to a rehab center to continue his recovery, the hospital could unsurprisingly find no takers, so they had to keep him and continue to care for him and provide rehab. After spending over 1-1/2 million dollars to care for and heal this illegal alien, the Hospital determined that he was as healed as he was likely to ever be, so they started looking for a long term care facility to take care of him, since he was violent and suffered seizures several times a day. Again, no takers in the US, but after much wrangling, the hospital got assurances from the Guatemalan government that if returned to Guatemala, he would be cared for by the Guatemalan government. So the hospital whistled up an air ambulance and flew him AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE, back to Guatemala, where to this day he languishes without proper treatment.

The family has hired a lawyer to sue the Hospital, claiming the patient was "dumped" in Guatemala, despite that the Guatemalan government agreed to care for him.

Truly pathetic. How many of our own citizens "languish" because of lack of health insurance? When the the U.S. become the caretaker for the rest of the world?

Sue the Family for not taking care of their own and for illegally trespassing into the US.
