That’s the price you pay for being illegal. You have to beg and scrape to make a living and depend upon charity for survival. That’s sad.
i am in complete agreement with deryck/trinidad remarks about the access of health care for illegal immigrants in milan…
I’m really shocked, don’t know what to say to that except it’s awful.
Gosh – where has kindness, compassion, mercy and common decency gone?
Please, someone from Italy, tell us this is not a true reflection of Italian society…
Italian Doctors Line Up For Jobs Abroad.
During a spell of freezing cold weather here in Brussels, an up-market hotel opened it’s doors free of charge to the homeless. And every night there is a soup kitchen available to all, including illegal immigrants.
I hold onto this thought when cynicism looms darkly over my head.
For illegal Immigrants, even the Vatican does, Its called Caritas. And also Private Associations.But the Italian Goverment only for its citizens.
The usual agenda-less thing from the BBC, I see.
As you know Victor, everyone has an agenda, but in my view it is the intention behind the agenda that is important. And if the BBC think that it is worthwhile highlighting these disturbing events in Italy, then I have no problem with that.
In Japan, I’ve been homeless twice (due to health problems). One night I missed my last train home and crashed in a hotel lobby. Outside in the rain I saw a homeless guy living in two boxes. In that sense I know what it feels like to not exist in society.
“This hospital is for Italians only.” Can’t get that phrase out of my head. Apparently it doesn’t matter whether you are “legal” or not.
This is a case of focusing on the symptom. You need to eliminate the lure of illegal immigration. And yes, hard conditions can be a lure when the alternative is worse. Yes, it would be nice to help them in their homelands. But this is easier to do from a stable and secure homeland. Refugees and illegal immigrants are a burden wherever they go. It is worth spending time and money to ensure others don’t have a need to flee. But when it happens, strict controls are needed.
@ Tom – I see what you are saying, but the Italian hospitals are discriminating against legal immigrants as well.
This is not a matter of so-called, illegal or legal immigration. It is a matter of human rights. Presumably those who would deny the stranger succour are the same who would not how you say in english ” give a monkeys” ? and pass by on the other side while the victim of thieves must wait for The Good Samaritan.
