Litigious Illegals...

"...The family of a now-deceased illegal immigrant who said he was denied medical care for cancer can sue the federal government for damages, a federal judge ruled, calling the allegations "beyond cruel and unusual" punishment.

Francisco Castaneda, a Salvadoran immigrant, was denied a biopsy for a painful lesion for 11 months, despite the recommendation of several doctors, according to government records cited by a judge.

He was later diagnosed with penile cancer and died Feb. 26 at age 36.

Castaneda spent eight months in state prison after being convicted in 2005 of possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute. He then was transferred to immigration custody because he was in the United States illegally..." (source)

Not only here illegally, but here and selling drugs and already using hundreds of thousands on prison room and board and now the family can profit from this meth-head's offenses? I don't know how much more of this I can take before I become a close-the-border altogether person....
