Fourteen people in need of kidney and liver transplants, along with family and friends, have been on a weeklong hunger strike, demanding a spot on a transplant waiting list, which they say they've been denied.
The men and women protested Monday outside Northwestern Memorial Hospital, some taking long breaks for dialysis. They said they've been denied a spot on the list because of their illegal residency in the country.

I think they should volunteer their own.
so here’s another angle to illegal aliens. Now we’re supposed to be liberal regarding illegal aliens so they can get transplant surgery. okay..............................
This is insanity and a sign on how far gone this country is...
Hardy-har-har ... ;-)
They can always go to their own country and get the transplants
Will they be willing to pay for their own transplant?
I doubt it.
It’s a lot cheaper surgery in their own country I bet. Heck, they could fly to India and get’er done a LOT cheaper.
Some one needs to tell them they need an ‘illegal’ kidney for it to be successful in them.
Nice word play.
Exactly why would we put criminals who enter our country illegally ahead of Americans in line for transplants? That makes no sense at all to me. To the extent that this makes sense to residents of our country, America is dead.
I think it is only fair. They should get on the phone with Mexico and have them send the organs up here right away.

“Choose 1 for a new kidney, 2 for a new liver or star for a combination...”
They should illegally move to Chiner where they could BUY a slightly used liver or kidney. Front of the line.
They cut in front of one line, why not all?
HELL YEAH!!!! Why do they give you a pound of meat and three tortillas?? And when you ask for more, they always “forget”, but they give you as many bowls of chips as you can eat.
“They can always go to their own country and get the transplants”
Such a simple concept, eh? Yet they come here and bitch to us every damn time about not getting enough freebies.
I hope they eat soon. They could damage their liver or kidneys.
