Migrants lured by social services

Some in the U.S. have long complained that illegal immigrants from Mexico are a net drain on society because they use social services like hospital emergency rooms without paying their share of taxes. Now there is hard data showing that indeed large numbers of migrants are crossing the US-Mexico border drawn by available medical care.

Oh, did I mention that the border crossers are headed South? They’re moving to Mexico in order to buy into the state run health plan.
