Trump administration says kids getting care for potentially fatal diseases won't be kicked out ot the country after all, but ...

There's always a but. The New York Times reports the government has reversed its decision that immigrant kids receiving advanced medical care in the US - including at least 20 in Boston - had 30 days to leave the country and die. But at the same time, it's considering not granting such medical waivers to new cases.

The article says they won't kick them out right away, but won't guarantee they'll get the extensions that until now have been routinely granted.

They prefer these poor people die or be killed at home rather than give them some hope.

The end of the program.

Leaving the kids already here alone is just a sop.

The NY Times article only refers to 'immigrants' without mentioning anything about immigration status (illegal, undocumented, etc.) which is a critical part of the story.

Bullshit.

The medical implications of deporting them are the critical part of the story.

Surely this will protect us from terrorists using deathly sick children as Trojan horses to infiltrate America... or something.

Walks back statements like these I wonder what other more heinous BS they are covering up.
