When people were coming to the US in the late 1800s, early 1900s, they rejected people that were retarded.

Yet, no one seems to care if HIV Pos people are allowed in nowadays??

Nice.
I wonder how wonderful Obamacare will treat these people? Just another drain on the economy.

And I forgot to add: Seems that if you don't like this policy, you're anti-gay. Give me a break!

Well that's why you make sure you have protected sex, regardless of someone's ethnic/racial/immigrant status.

The ignorance in this discussion is amazing! Who said ignorance was in a decline?

Everyone has their own little hell in their life. All of you not wishing to let HIV+ persons in America need to access your own situations that you haven't told anyone about.

And drop the "they'll seek free care" bit. Because what "free" care does even American citizens who are + receive? Going to the emergency room because you have HIV will not get you any treatment. Unless you report there in a stretcher with pneumonia about to die. They'll treat the pneumonia and send you home.

You obviously need to do a little research before posting.
First of all, those emergency room visits NEVER end up getting paid for.
Second, hospitals DO offer follow-up care. Which, AGAIN, never ends up getting paid for.
Finally, between legal means, and the illegal use of false documents and ID, illegal immigrants do receive medical treatment without ever paying for it.

Once it becomes legal, and illegals can officially get free health-care here, it will be the beginning of the end.

The ban that was in place did not affect illegals because it only stopped those seeking legal entry into the US. Illegals enter the US regardless of the ban.

Don't despair, the law only applies to people who are coming to your precious country legally. Thus, there will be very few if any of the dreaded hiv+ "mexicans" which invade your blessed land and steal all your agricultural jobs.

Immigratring legally to the United States is almost impossible for the vast majority of improvished. But that's the point isn't it?

I am so glad that ATS is NOT a good representation of the majority of Americans.

The stats are still high. This is why gays cannot donate blood to this day - because the larger majority of HIV-infected people are gay.

OP are you trolling?....
No, for real.

I can't believe there was a ban in the first place...

Gay does not stand for Got Aids Yet.


Where does the OP mention gays?

It seems that YOU are the one making the connection between gays and people that are HIV positive.

Right here:

President Obama on Friday announced the end of a 22-year ban on travel to the United States by people who had tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS, fulfilling a promise he made to gay advocates and acting to eliminate a restriction he said was “rooted in fear rather than fact.”



As to the subject of the OP, it would only make sense to keep out people with AIDS if we rounded up all our citizens with AIDS and kept them from interacting with the general public. It's not like foreign AIDS has a worse strain or that it's more communicable or dangerous that US AIDS. It doesn't make sense to disallow people with AIDS in the country.

My point and you know it
is that the OP never said that the people trying to get in that were HIV positive were gay. He said it was supported by gay rights activists.

IF these people - or some large percentage - were gay, it would seem strange for gay rights activists to support having more possible HIV carriers added to the population, since in some way it could also add to the number of new infections.

You are responsible in that you will take measures to not pass on HIV.

You will act as a responsible human in a civilized society.

Sorry for any confusion.

Thank you for the clarificication and your are absolutely right. I've cruised through craiglist upon time (just being a perv), and identified people that they were in fact HIV positive. This is a nghtmnarish time bomb. These people have no ethical morals. It they want sex......at least come out and say your HIV positive instead of lying.

The line I hate most with these type of classified is that you 'll get people saying "Drug, disease freee...you be too.

Well, show me a very recent and lab work before I would even consider having sex with someone. Yes Virginia, there are other diseases out that there that I do not want!

Thanks again for your reply.

It might be argued that to accept the "tempest-tost" with open arms is to be of "moral" high ground.

Is it evil to be accepting of someone who contracted HIV through tainted blood?
Is being "gay" evil? If not, then is having HIV as a result of "men having sex with men" (MSM); ie "being gay" evil?
Is being a recovered IV drug user evil? What if you're left with HIV... then you're evil?

In Canada over 60% of new HIV cases are due to MSM.

But it is a virus, not a bacteria or germ. And it is passed through sex or exchange of blood. Somehow I get an inlking that you don't donate blood. ;P



I have donated blood twice.... actually because I am O POS My blood is in high demand, but that changed when I asked if I could also send some pints to a collection just for me, in case I ever need it... when they said there's no way that can be done, well then I decided it was not in my best interest to do so anymore. And I always watched them open new needles and watched every thing they did, making sure they were not being careless, it was easy in a tiny little bus lol. I know that it is a virus, It's still something I don't wanan come in contact with just as the flu virus... yes that's a virus too, which I donot want contact with. If I even think a friend has it I will not let them into my vicinity, I hate being sick.

You people, who think this is ok, are living in some imaginary dream world.
The people of our country cannot be forced to nursemaid the entire world!
The USA is already hated, regardless of everything decent we have done. Only the negative is focused on.
Now, we are having our arms twisted into care-taking for an entire nation that, instead of fixing the problems that exist in their own country, are bringing them into ours.
To all of you super-liberals, pack up, and take your good intentions south of our border, and try to actually fix the problem.
Do not force your will on our way of life.
Whether it is popular or not, my daughter comes first to me. These people will have to solve their problems on their own soil.



Yeah I used to be a liberal,too; and then I grew up!

Thank you for your reply.
