US should give health care to the world
Re: ‘The buck stops with Congress’ (Metro, Nov. 14)
Letter writer Mike Mace would have us believe that “illegals” don’t deserve health care coverage.
I simply wish to remind him that contagious diseases don’t care about the immigration statuses of the people they infect. The only fix for our immigration challenges today is to recognize that we are all world citizens, and that economic, political and social exploitation all depend entirely on a system that chooses not to grant either a legal status or basic human rights like health care coverage to all people as world citizens.
