Protesters demanding organ transplants for immigrants who are in the country illegally have gathered outside Chicagoís Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
The group of about 40 includes about a dozen or so hunger strikers. They say they represent immigrants from Mexico who are being denied transplants because they canít pay for them.
The protesters showed up Sunday and say they wonít leave until their demands are met. They protested previously at other Chicago-area hospitals, too.
They say hospitals will take immigrantsí organs but wonít give them transplants.
The Rev. Jose Landaverde said Monday that the group is demanding justice.
Northwestern didnít immediately respond to requests for comment.Copyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
