GIVE ME YOUR POOR, YOUR TIRED, YOUR UNINSURED

I was challenged by Alisa Solomon's "Don't Ask, Do Tell" [July 9-15] regarding documenting the undocumented.

Two years ago, my adult son in Florida was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident when a senior cut him off and then sped away. Not being able to afford medical coverage, he was rushed to a local hospital, which then billed him for $30,000, forcing him into bankruptcy.

To provide similar medical services for undocumented immigrants by an overworked system, then wiping the costs clean, seems unfair to me. They infringe upon the very laws that are supposed to protect law-abiding immigrants and the rest of us.
