Because they live in the shadows. When Conchita shows up at the hospital in the throes of labor, she gives the hospital a phony name. No SSN? No problemo! No speaky? Hablamos Espanol! Addresso? Makes one up or uses an existing address where she never lived. They will probably not even bother to send the bill, because they know they will never get a dime out of her.

The hospital has no choice but to indulge them, and we Americans have no choice but to pick up the tab.

Maybe you can try this next time you have to visit the emergency room? I have been tempted to see what they would do if I showed up at the emergency room and said my name was Ana Garcia and was "undocumented"....
