How the hell can you have a welfare state with open borders???
^^ answer the question dumbass, how do you have a welfare state (single payer) with open borders?
You can ask the question as many times as you like, but old Republicans blaming healthcare costs on young immigrants is bizarre.
They're not "open". I don't care how many times Trump says it, it isn't true. Take a trip and try to cross illegally, but look out for the massive number of CBP agents, assisted by the P3 Orion with sophisticated radar, the Blackhawk helicopters, and drones that the CBP has at their disposal. You might be able to cross, you might get caught. Either way, that's hardly an open border.
2. I know plenty of immigrants, both legal and illegal over the years. Most of them are busy working and raising their families. If they work somewhere with healthcare they pay premiums just like everyone else. They're not a drain on our healthcare system, in fact, they're contributing with far less likelihood of being able to file a claim or get a return on what they pay in.
