    DISCHARGE,DEPORTATION,AND DANGEROUS JOURNEYS:ASTUDY ON THE PRACTICE OF MEDICAL REPATRIATION

    This report, a collaborative project of Seton Hall University School of Law’s Center for Social Justice (CSJ) and the Health Justice Program at New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI), utilizes a human rights framework to critique the widespread but barely publicized practice of forced or coerced medical repatriations of immigrant patients. Through this practice, private and public hospitals in the United States are engaged in unlawful, and frequently extrajudicial, deportations of ill or injured immigrant patients to medical facilities abroad, completely circumventing the federal government’s exclusive authority to deport individuals.
    This is criminal and immoral and stupid.

      and am still wondering why hospitals are not facing defunding or some sorts of sanctions by the DOJ for this practice.
