Cutting out the middle man

Sometimes the machinery that is US Immigration law moves a bit too slowly. Tired of paying the bill this hospital thought outside the box.

STUART, Fla. — A South Florida hospital that quietly chartered a plane and sent a seriously brain injured illegal immigrant back to Guatemala over the objections of his family and legal guardian did not act unreasonably, a jury ruled Monday.

Health care and immigration experts across the country have closely watched the court case in the sleepy coastal town of Stuart. They say it underscores the dilemma facing hospitals with patients who require long-term care, are unable to pay and don't qualify for federal or state aid because of their immigration status.

Maybe if we did a bit more of this Illegal Immigration might not be such a big problem.
