The mainstream liberal news media will never get around to telling you this, but the reason there is such a ridiculously long waiting list for vets that they are even dying for lack of treatment, is that the facilities are overrun from treating illegals.
I heard it from a Texas transplant about 4 years ago. The VA Hospital in San Antonio wouldn’t take him on as a new patient. He said, “I’m a vet??” They just said, “We are at capacity.” As he left he looked around the waiting rooms, nothing but illegals. I can guaran-darn-tee you that is exactly what is happening in a border state like Arizona.
[A latino legal resident was told a variation of this on a recent trip to a Des Moines hospital, “Don’t bring your papers or you’ll have to pay.”]
