Citizenship often determines who gets medical care
Health services and other benefits available to illegal immigrants can vary by the state. Welfare, prenatal care, or in-state college tuition might be available in one place and inaccessible across a state line. The disparities reflect the nation's conflicting attitudes toward its estimated 12 million illegal immigrants. With limited federal guidance, states often are left to make their own decisions, frequently shaped by political winds.
