I'll probably catch a few flames for this, but I'd dare say that if
health care was not readily available to those who are not "legal
citizens" there would be fewer such around.  Let me get one thing
perfectly clear:  I have no problem with people who want to emigrate
to the US legally.  But I have very little sympathy for those who want
to come here illegally and exploit the system and our
generosity/humanity/whatever to receive care that they are not paying
