Hypothetical question: If a 80 year old citizen and a 16 year old illegal immigrant needed a kidney, and there was only one left. Who would you rather it go to?

The 80 year old citizen or 16year old illegal immigrant?

  • 16- I highly doubt that 16 year old was the one who made the decision to come here anyway. And after they get the kidney they can apply for citizenship.

    And 80 year old has lived a long life.

  • The 16 year old they have a whole life ahead of them. The 80 year old only has MAYBE 20 years if they are extremely lucky.

  • Whomever is most compatible. No point in implanting a kidney just to have it rejected due to different blood factors.

  • Jenree, what do you think YOUR ancestors did, when they came here? Oh yeah, they did leech off the system, they raped and pillaged the native people.
