From the Paper:"Over forty million people in this country have no regular access to health care. Most of these are people who earn too little to pay premiums on individual health insurance policies or are not employed by companies that offer health insurance benefits. In spite of this, we continue to treat illegal immigrants and their dependents the same as legal residents. Over the last several decades, and despite the severe fiscal crises faced by local and state governments, political leaders continued to promote policies that grant costly benefits to people who violate immigration laws. One out of every four uninsured people in the United States is an illegal immigrant. Almost half of these immigrants have either no insurance or have it provided to them at taxpayers' expense. In some hospitals, as much as two-thirds of total operating costs are for uncompensated care for illegal aliens."
