What the hell is the matter with people?

There's a thread in the Tavern about a little girl with cancer who needs a bone marrow transplant. As it turns out, her sister is a match, but lives in El Salvador and can't get a visa to the US due to bureaucratic garbage. Apparently, according to some, it doesn't matter if she dies or it is some kind of ploy for the sister to stay in the country illegally or get some government funded healthcare. Is there really that much hate and insensitivity towards immigrants that people feel this kid shouldn't get the medical care she needs? It's bad enough that the government is so screwed up that it won't give the visa, but that people support the government's position just boggles the mind. If karma exists, we need to be very careful.

Where is the thread, which one?

 

Sounds bad.  Explain "bureaucratic garbage".  Why can't she get a visa? I won't defend people wishing ill on this person, but something is fishy here.

Some of the responses in that thread are pretty callous. For God's sake, this is a seven year old child, get the sister here and hope the operation is successful.

 

Thank you for your sanity. Sadly, it seems that in the eyes of some people, that some American citizens' lives are worth less than others based on who their parents are. :(

Well all the suffering aside, that story explains nothing.  "Afraid she will stay"?



 



ain't buying that.



 



the girl can come here no problem.  I am in a building right now with (100 percent wild guess), 25 people that that came here with absolutely no intention of leaving.  And the feds condone it, and the states condone it, and the employees condone it, and a lot of the people that say they are against it condone it.



 



There is more to this tale I believe.

It's all good, she's gonna get her medical care.

 

Just sad we're gonna borrow more money abroad to finance it.

 

Every 2.5 years our national debt costs us a trillion dollars in interest at the present rate.

I hope the little lady gets what medical treatment she needs. It's a child and we have the ability to help her. We offer medical treatment to illegals and the most humane treatment to our most sickening prisoners. I hope the little girl comes out ok..

Still tough.  Lets see the first three words of the very first article of that google search, written by Mr Bob Braun of the Star Ledger.  Three words (do you count the abbreviated letters?  Five words?  I don't know).  Okay the firs half of the headline

 

 

Strict U.S. immigration laws

 

 

 

 

 

Sound the Failhorn.   There are 12 million people in the USA that came here illegally-there is nothing strict about the Immigration department.  I don't really care to go through more of the stories.

 

 

 

The girl can come here no problem.  i wish them the best in their lives.

 

 

 

 

 

I am assuming the parents of the sick child are illegal aliens, right?

I don't know nor do I care. The little girl is as American as you and I. To those who don't like that her parents are illegal (if they are), petition to repeal the 14th Amendment, but that's not the young lady's fault.
