What do you mean by 'illegals'... are you referring to people without insurance? Or people illegally in the US?

When you go to the emergency room you are seen in order of the severity of your emergency. People that come by ambulance will come before you as will most really sick infants/children. The waiting process applies to everyone, not just 'illegals'.

BTW: Why would you be at the emergency room for treatment when you have insurance and there are numerous urgent care centers open that would treat your non-emergency condition?
