If it was a citizen, let them be deported to mexico, and lets see how offended they get then.

As ridiculous as this is....it is a private business and they can pretty much do what they want. ***Edit to add: Yep, private business: Kindred Healthcare
But it seems if enough people complain, sometimes it works
Kindred Healthcare's corporate headquarters are located in Kentucky. We called them for comment when we were first working on this story Tuesday, but they did not return our calls.
Wednesday morning, however, our story received nationwide attention. We have received dozens of emails and comments from people who had something to say about it. And a receptionist at Kindred's headquarters told us they received many phone calls.
Then, late Wednesday morning, Kindred posted on its website a statement about the incident. It reads, in part: "The disagreement was over the size of the flag and not what it symbolized. We have invited the employee to put the flag back up."
While she keeps working there, if I were her, Id be actively searching for another job.

The real problem is that the Hospital made the woman take it down just because ONE woman was offended. How ridiculous.
