Latinos have a 200-600% higher diabetes, obesity & heart disease rates than Caucasians depending on whom you ask. In either case we really can't afford to give away any healthcare services to foreigners. This is one of the reasons healthcare is so unaffordable.
I sell insurance, people with the above conditions are basically uninsurable in the private sector and those with the above conditions are usually too unhealthy to work so they won't be getting any employer funded coverage either, creating a permanent drain on the US healthcare system and driving up healthcare costs for everybody.
