Illegal Immigrants Receiving Health Benefits, Despite Legislation

Illegal immigrants are receiving health benefits in dozens of counties across the country despite legislation that rules out that possibility. According to the Wall Street Journal, 25 counties with the most illegal aliens, 20 are helping them get basic health services.

Those include: doctor visits, prescription drugs, lab tests and surgeries.

“The services usually are inexpensive or free to participants, who must prove they live in the county but are told their immigration status doesn’t matter,” The Journal says, noting local politicians believe it is cheaper than to treating them in the hospital emergency rooms.

But critics say these free services encourage more illegals to move in. The total cost? As much as $1 billion a year, the newspaper says.
