Democrat state legislators in New York are reviewing legislation that would have sought-after kidney transplants rewarded to illegal aliens ahead of thousands of Americans who are waiting for such donations.
According to the New York Times, Democrat legislators in New York are looking at the plan to open organ transplants, specifically kidney transplants, to illegal aliens. Such transplants are customarily reserved for Americans with Social Security Numbers (SSNs).
The Times reports:
One bill under consideration in the State Legislature would add kidney transplants — the most frequently performed organ transplants — to the limited menu of emergency medical services provided to undocumented immigrantswithout insurance. [Emphasis added]
Undocumented immigrants are not explicitly blocked from receiving transplants. But they face major impediments because they lack Social Security numbers and often don’t have health insurance. City agencies estimate that 46 percent of 476,000 undocumented immigrants in New York City lack health insurance. [Emphasis added]
That plan would come as 8,500 Americans in New York state are waiting in anticipation for organ transplants — the majority of which, more than 7,200, are wishing for a new kidney.
Already, many Americans die before acquiring long-awaited organ transplants.
“In 2021, 820 individuals, including several under the age of 18, were removed from transplant waiting lists because they became too ill to undergo a transplant procedure or they passed away before an organ became available,” New York state officials detailed in a report.
Such a move would put New York harmoniously with the likes of California, which became the first in the nation last year when Democrats passed legislation to free up taxpayer-funded health insurance plans to all of its 4.4 million illegal alien residents.

NYC Mayor Eric Adams is complaining loudly about the illegal aliens coming into his city saying “the city is being destroyed by the migrant crisis.” Ironically, just a couple of years ago, he put out the welcome mat for all illegal aliens.https://t.co/1qAMRdv6af
