Immigrant Children Receiving Medical Care Now Face Deportation Under Policy Change


SAYS THE MOVE WOULD SAVE AT LEAST $79, $17 MILLION PER YEAR. A SUDDEN POLICY CHANGE BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION COULD MEAN HUNDREDS OF SICK IMMIGRANT KIDS COULD BE DEPORTED INCLUDING MANY PATIENTS AT CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL IN BOSTON. THIS FAMILY CAME TO THE U.S. LEGALLY FROM HONDURAS IN 2016 AS PART OF A PROGRAM FOR IMMIGRANTS TO RECEIVE LIFE- SAVING TREATMENTS FOR UP TO TWO YEARS. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION JUST CHANGED THE POLICY AND THE FAMILY RECEIVED A LETTER TELLING THEM TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY OR BE DEPORTED. THE LETTER SAYS WE NEED TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY IN 33 DAYS. IN MY PERSPECTIVE IT IS MAKING LEGAL HOMICIDE. BECAUSE OF THE SUDDEN CHANGE, HUNDREDS OF SICK KIDS AND THEIR FAMILIES ARE IN LIMBO. COMING UP, CBS THIS MORNING

  1. This is nuts! And it could destroy the Republican Party itself.
    When the 33 days stated in the deportation letters expires the media will have cameras at the hospital bedsides of these extremely sick children. They'll be filming as ICE officers disconnect the the wires and tubes keeping the child alive. The cameras will film the wailing, struggling children, the horrified medical staff and the weeping parents. And that video will lead every campaign ad for every Democrat running for office in 2020. Good luck with that, Mr. President. And good luck to ANY GOP candidate hoping to get elected in any state that isn't 100%, unchangeably solid red.

Remember, if Democrats win more than two thirds of the House and the Senate they can repeal pretty much anything except the original US Constitution itself. With that kind of majority they can change or repeal ANY of the 33 amendments to the Constitution – INCLUDING THE 2ND AMENDMENT. They can even change the Supreme Court and how it works.
    In other countries, Supreme Court justices are appointed by the Judiciary itself. They're not political appointments like they are in the US. And they can set term limits for the justices, too.
    If the GOP doesn't put some breaks on the craziness coming from Trump and his administration, they may not even be a party in 2021.

  2. Trump is familiar with cutting off medical care to sick children according to an article from The New Yorker in Jan 2016 https://www.newyorker.com/news/john-cassidy/what-sort-of-man-is-donald-trump "This is how one of Evans’s articles, which the Daily News published on December 19, 2000, began:
    Even when it comes to a sick baby in his family, Donald Trump is all business. The megabuilder and his siblings Robert and Maryanne terminated their nephew’s family medical coverage a week after he challenged the will of their father, Fred Trump. “This was so shocking, so disappointing and so vindictive,” said niece Lisa Trump, whose son, William, was born 18 months ago at Mount Sinai Medical Center with a rare neurological disorder that produces violent seizures, brain damage and medical bills topping $300,000.
    According to Evans’s account, the baby, William Trump—whose father, Fred Trump III, is Freddy’s son—had been diagnosed with “infantile spasms,…..""
