Why would anyone want the government in charge of their medical decisions?!?!

Testimony about unsafe/illegal working conditions at the Agriprocessor plant in Postville may be lost because the prosecution didn't get depositions scheduled before the deportations of illegal aliens they employed.

I'm not really surprised that different federal bureaucracies don't communicate. But imagine the assorted inevitable disasters when the various federal bureaucracies need 20 days to process requests from your doctor, or don't submit the proper forms to the right clinic before your scheduled operation...

I've long been arguing that immigration enforcement is more humanitarian than our current setup--trafficked "sex workers" (including children) and other illegal workers can't freely contact the local authorities to report their abusers--so this just fries my hash anyway.
