15. Perhaps you find it useful to pose the idiot as the model. It discredits you.
It's the rare person who would sincerely suggest that those 18 illegals be left with their injuries or delivered to the border in whatever condition they were in by the time they arrived. Not even Tancredo or Arpaio are saying that illegals should be denied emergency medicine. It's a false argument on your part, because emergency medicine is given, perhaps not charitably, to anyone in this country including those much farther down the ladder than illegal aliens. But the difference is that the illegal aliens aren't supposed to be here, they are not citizens, and then do not have the entitlements of citizens, so they should be treated and then returned to their own country. In this case, both countries of origin have National Health Service care I believe.
