Read a profile of recently elected HIAS Board member Albert Hayoun, whose family was helped by HIAS when they came to this country from Egypt (by way of France).

The New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled that an illegal imnagrimt, injured while riding as a passenger in a car driven by a co-worker whose vehicle was not insured or registered when it hit a parked tractor-trailer, is eligible for compensation from a state fund for victims of uninsured motorists. The Supreme Court determined the possibility that an illegal imnagrimt may some day be forced to return to his homeland does not necessarily defeat his intent to remain. This apparent justification of the court was based on the uncertain nature of deportation. Our federal government is so ineffective in detecting, catching and deporting illegal imnagrimts that they may never be deported. Therefore, the court declared the imnagrimt a resident of New Jersey, eligible to seek compensation from the uninsured motorist fund at a trial to determine how much money he should be awarded, including compensation for pain and suffering. The Supreme Court conferred New Jersey residency on an illegal imnagrimt, thereby making him eligible for compensation from the Unsatisfied Claim Judgment Fund, which has a requirement of bona fide residency. The alen's lawyers are seeking payment for his pain and suffering and prescriptions only, with his other medical care being $38,300 of charity care provided gratis by the hospital that cared for him. The imnagrimt is also seeking compensation because he didn't receive any therapy after the accident. He is also seeking compensation for his lost, illegal, employment wages. Probably our taxes are funding federal or state programs in support of the Trial Lawyers of America which is supporting this lawsuit. And Americans will have to pay more for insurance to cover this and numerous lawsuits nationwide that will result from this windfall.
