The immigration reform bill should be passed soon so that people won't face such problems.

This is just another reason to enforce immigration laws and deport these criminals before they become a burden on our healthcare system or even worse before they make a victim out of a citizen or immigrant. Granting amnesty will only assure more victims and more burdens on our healthcare system. Every illegal alien that shows up at a hospital looking for care should be reported to ICE and deported A.S.A.P.

no one is wishing harm on illegal aliens,but the law must be enforced so that Americans aren't stuck with the medical bills illegal aliens will not pay. maybe we should take care of them now and then make sure anchor babies pay for it directly when they start working,on top of the taxes they have to pay every week? Deportation seems more reasonable now doesn't it?

please! stop being so ignorant. for those who continuously believe that none illegal immigrant pays taxes. please do some research before you follow the herd. not everyone but most of us pay our taxes. there is a thing call TIN # wich is the equivalent to a SSN. which we use to report at the beginning of every year what money we made the year before. "not everyone does it,is true but is a matter of honesty and there is dishonest people illegal and legal too. an immigration reform will make every one follow the same rules. isn't that what you self- righteous want? well guess what. it comes with responsibilities but rights as well. just swallowed it. it won't taste that bad.

What is the point of referring to Mexican law? That has nothing to do with the topic, but if you insist in Mexico the Constitution also guarantees healthcare for everybody.

This would never happen in Mexico.

The IRS should be doing ICE's work.
If you are an undocumented immigrant working in the US, the IRS will surely find you and make sure you are paying your taxes.
75% of undocumented immigrants are on Payrolls & pay all taxes according to IRS & Social Security officials.

The subject is illegal aliens not immigrants though your statement is still not correct. The majority of the people in the U.S. are by definition not immigrants and illegal aliens are not immigrants. They are illegal aliens.
