If illegal immigrants are gainfully employed and paying
taxes, then I feel that they should be allowed to get health benefits for
themselves and their families. I think
that this privilege should be contingent upon paying taxes. We can’t let these people come here and
contribute to our country by taking all of the jobs that no one else wants and
then say that we’re going to deny them health benefits. That’s not right.
Unless it is an emergency life or death situation, illegal immigrants should not get health benefits. Many legal citizens don't have health benefits, and aren't able to take advantage of government programs for some low income people. Legal citizens should not have to pay taxes for illegal immigrants to get services that they can't even get.
