Health Care for persons in this country illegally.

What should we do about providing health care for people in this country illegally?

On the one hand, persons here illegally may put a strain on the system (I say “may” because ironically, many illegals do pay taxes).

On the other hand, to ignore the health needs of a large group of people has public health implications- diseases may spread within that population and then affect “the rest of us”:

  • tuberculosis
  • HIV
  • flu and related conditions

Also, for the purposes of this question, please assume that “sending all illegals back home” would take years, so we still have to deal with the issue, at least temporarily.

So here is the question- please select only one answer:

Until the day when there are no illegals, should persons in this country illegally have access to the health care system?
