Re: “This just in: Rep. Greg Walden announces a Bend town hall

Thank you so much for taking your time at the Rally on the 5th. You said your non-constits could contact you, so here I am. Bonamici doesn't represent me (or a lot of others).
Concern: ORGAN DONATIONS being given to illegal aliens. I assume you have heard, and may be following the situation at OHSU. This has a lot of us organ donors upset who never knew it was legal for illegal aliens to receive organs ahead of US citizens (I didn't think they could get them at all). I looked up and found the US Government placement group UNDS states all are eligible for receipt of organs regardless of citizenship status. WoW. They must be able to pay, be placed on the wait list. There is a MELD score that will determine if they go to the top of the list. Once they are scored their immigration status is not shown so there is no prejudice. I found another at UCLA who has received 3 livers already ahead of US citizens and is waiting for #4. This policy needs to be reversed....although these are only two, how many others are there that we do not find on-line. My husband and I are considering dropping our organ donor status after we found this out, as are many others I have seen on facebook. I DO NOT WANT MY BODY PARTS going to an illegal alien. I would rather an 80 old vet that did service to this country gain additional life with my donation, than an illegal STAY AT HOME mom who has done nothing but add more children to our overburdened systems.
Thank you Sir, for all you do!
