Mentally ill immigrants have little hope for care when detained

AUSTIN – Jose Fernandez Sanchez was delusional when he broke a window to enter his neighbor’s apartment. The schizophrenic and epileptic 45-year-old, who had gone to an Austin hospital the day before, complaining of hearing voices, told police he was trying to light a candle for his dead mother. But instead of taking Sanchez to get medical attention, authorities started deportation proceedings against him, leaving the legal permanent resident in a detention-center cell for eight months. By the time a judge saw Sanchez, he was so catatonic that he couldn’t answer a simple question.

Sanchez was one of the lucky few: His siblings pooled their money to hire an attorney, who made a compelling case to an immigration judge. Sanchez went from the detention center to a San Antonio psychiatric hospital, where he should have been all along.

But most mentally ill immigrants aren’t so fortunate. They get limited mental-health care while in detention, advocates say – and that’s only if they’re diagnosed. They aren’t entitled to competency hearings before standing trial. And the majority of them face judges without legal counsel, and with little recourse to defend themselves from deportation.

“I felt like I didn’t have the power to get help. They didn’t care how they were taking care of me,” said Sanchez, who emigrated from Mexico in 1988 and received amnesty in the United States. “I was very scared, because I knew if I was sent back to my country, they wouldn’t be able to help me like the U.S.”

Please pay attention to this line, it sets the tone for this entire post: “I was very scared, because I knew if I was sent back to my country, they wouldn’t be able to help me like the U.S.”

I have a very special message for Jose Fernandez Sanchez, and the many thousands of others like him; if the USA isn’t ‘your country’, then YOU need tote your screwed up self back TO ‘your country’. You are, according to this story, a legal, permanent resident of the United States of America. If you can’t, or won’t call the USA ‘your country’, get your challenged ass OUT of MY country you miserable leech.

1. If you migrate to this county, you must speak the native language

2. You have to be a professional or an investor. No unskilled workers allowed.

3. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, all government business will be conducted in our language.

4. Foreigners will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.

5. Foreigners will NEVER be able to hold political office.

6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs.

7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

8. If foreigners do come and want to buy land that will be okay, BUT options will be restricted. You are not allowed waterfront property. That is reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.

9. Foreigners may not protest; no demonstrations, no waving a foreign flag, no political organizing, no badmouthing our president or his policies, if you do you will be sent home.

10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail.

Harsh, you say? The above is taken from the immigration laws of MEXICO! Perhaps WE could take a lesson in immigration enforcement FROM Mexico!

I don’t begrudge anyone the right to better themselves. I don’t begrudge anyone the right to a better life. If there are Mexican people that want a better life, a better standard of living, better health care, better schools and so forth, and they want to partake of those finer things in life here in the United States of America, by all means, do so, but become a loyal American citizen in the process.

If you’re going to enjoy the benefits of America, be an American. Refer to the USA as your NEW country, call yourself an American. Dedicate yourself to being an AMERICAN.

If you can’t do that, then you deserve NOTHING that this nation has to offer.

    Good one Fred, I like your “Bill Of No Rights” for the fence jumping freeloaders. It’s a sad story and everyone’s got ‘em Mr Jose Fernandez Sanchez Edwardo et al, Including me.

    Life sux and we shouldn’t be footin’ the bill for every sick Tom Dick and Jose who don’t belong here, compassion costs money I’m afraid, money we obviously don’t have to throw around with “Thousand Dollar Bill” Obama in office.

    The door is beginning to close; the populace in general is actually beginning to be fed up. It takes massive pushing to do this to the American public, but they can only be bled by ILLEGAL INVADERS for so long.

    One exception: The unskilled spouse of the immigrant will be allowed to stay. (Someone has to look after the kids, home, etc…)

    Good plan.

    As usual, right on target Fred. If he won’t claim this as his country, he needs to leave.
