In this Wednesday March 6, 2013 photo, Jose Guadalupe Rodriguez-Saldana, 38, walks with orthopedic supports outside of his home in the town of Tierra Blanca, Veracruz state, Mexico.  Rodriguez-Saldana and another friend suffered serious injuries during a car accident last May 2008 in northwestern Iowa. After their employers insurance coverage ran out, Rodriguez-Saldana, who was not a legal citizen, was placed on a private airplane and flown to Mexico still comatose and unable to discuss his care or voice his protest. Hospitals confronted with absorbing the cost of caring for uninsured seriously injured immigrants are quietly deporting them, often unconscious and unable to protest, back to their home countries.
