Border Control

Immigration policy is a hot topic thanks in part to the political landscape, Herman Cain's electric fence and Rick Perry's educate them at taxpayer expense proclamations.

Of course Obamneycrap is also front and center thanks to the upcoming election and pending Supreme Court docket.

So this is a two-fer.

The back story is an illegal immigrant is seriously injured in a workplace accident.

And he does not have health insurance . . .
The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has been treating Francisco Martinez for three months since a workplace injury left him paralyzed from the chest down.

Since Martinez does not have insurance, the hospital is trying to point him back to Mexico, according to his wife. Brandi Cullen Valderram, Martinez’s wife, told KHOU-TV that UTMB has been telling them that there’s no other option but for Martinez to return to Mexico, even offering the illegal immigrant a free flight back, which he doesn’t want to accept.
Doesn't want to go back.

Maybe the health care system in the U.S. is superior to Mexico . . . especially when it is free.
