Diabetic man died after being deported to Iraq

A 41-year-old Iraqi-born man who had lived in the U.S. since he was an infant but was deported in June for roughly 20 convictions over two decades include assault, domestic violence, home invasion and disorderly conduct died this week because he was unable to obtain insulin for his diabetes.

Illegal immigrant (nearly from birth) and a criminal. Never sought a path to citizenship. If he weren't a criminal he probably could have become a citizen given that he's been here since he was an infant. He chose another path which, unfortunately, led to his death.

So... what they’re trying to pin this on the US. How? We didn’t drop him off in the middle of nowhere. Once we sent him home the responsibility lay with him.

I'll sum it up: he was deported for being a criminal, he never sought citizenship, and they are not really sure how he died.

Maybe he should never have left Iraq in the first place.
