Migrants face organ donation challenges in the US

Recent article on the New York Times about the difficulty faced by patients awaiting organ donations from a non-US citizen family member.  Sometimes I conflate issues facing migrants and ethnic minorities and speak of them as one group.  This article is certainly a caution against such an oversight.

    Though I agree with the need to assert national security, migration policy in the wake of 9/11 has become a mere reflection of various security initiatives. The U.S. airline industry, for instance, which once was dominant in the Europe/Asia to Latin America market, has been killed off by anti-competitive visa regimes. I’m not surprised that this move towards a more comprehensive security approach to migration policy has produced unintended consequences – unfortunately amongst an at-risk population who can ill afford the time lost.
