Legal immigrants and their kids who were born overseas can't get on Medicaid for 5 years. But if the kids were born here, they'd be US citizens and would be eligible for Medicaid.

The kids that are born here get SCHIP from day one.

Actually, if you go to most immunization clinics, you can get immunizations with no questions asked. I have worked in several IZ clinics in Colorado, and we did not ask immigration status.

Then you should tell my friend with cancer where he can get his kidney removed. Because they want him to pay and won't do the surgery.
