    From what I understand there is a medical waiver and your friend will have to meet certain criteria to be eligible. HIV in this country is no longer a death warrant, it is a manageable disease like diabetes or any other chronic disease. I imagine he can get a waiver, good luck.

    I am not an attorney if that's what you ask. The bill is very confusing, I agree.
    If you can't figure it out yourself ask an attorney. He will be answering questions at 5 pm ET.

    mpodcsin I read the bill and I am not an expert to discuss it, but of what I undertood there is a section that refers to health issues and there is a section that refers to a waiver if the person can support themselves. Very confusing.

    No my friend is not married, if he was married things would have been different.

    He works like everyone else and pay taxes and he has a health insurance. He has been here for 25 years out but of status since 1988.

    In reference to the new immigration laws, when one would have to take the medical for legalization? At the beginning of the procedure or at the end of the 6 years??
    Thanks for the nice replies. It's unfortunate that some people have nothing else to do and come to this site to say all kind of stupid things. Shame!!!

    Only in case of 'MENTAL DIARRHEA' ........
    No doubt about that !

    Hope there were provisions excluding all who suffer from it, not just applicants for immigration benefits

    Dear John100,

    I am sorry to hear about your friend. HIV/AIDS is listed as one of the diseases that are inadmissible. Now, I don't know if since he is already here if that might make a difference. What is his current status?

    Good luck,
    BigDummy

    No HIV is regrettably incurable - and contageous. A claim for poor medical treatment will not help. Some strains of TB, Leprosy, Ebola, Dengue, Malaria, Cholera, Hepatitis, Plague, Small pox (which was thought to be eradicted but is on the come back as is Polio), as well as other diseases are just not cureable - regardless of types of medical care.

    If you review the forms for permanent residency and citizenship, you will see there is a medical requirement and you must be reviewed by an immigration doctor. This has been in place since the 1800's. So anyone wanting to stay permanently will need medical clearance.

    There are people who are being denied immigration because they have been treated for cancer - even though they are in remission or it has been 'cured'.
