The US is already struggling financially. Holding the Federal Government financially responsible for non-American citizens would only further this struggle and make life harder for tax paying Americans.
When our country was in dire need of baby formula there were warehouses full of baby products specifically set for illegal immigrants. So, as our own future generations died without the ability to get help, unknown outsiders got helped. Instead of keeping ourselves strong and able to help, we gave our own meals up to others. We did not stand for the British to take our food right out of our hands, why should we allow that now?
Maybe the real question to ask is why was there a shortage on baby formula. If something is able to be profited off of, companies will do it. Plus, the British were an opposing group that had power over us, and immigrants do not have power over us--they are disadvantaged. You are angry at a group of people for taking $1 from you when you have $10 and not at the man who is hoarding $100000.
You can’t choose where you were born, and everyone should have a fair chance to live, immigration healthcare should only allowed if the the persons being treated agrees to repay in whatever form after a successful treatment.
If they pass this, the people who live in this country,who pay the taxes for this country, will be paying MUCH more money in taxes just for these people to have health care, why should we be paying for someone we don't even know?
