Do Americans know that Mexico allows Illegal immigrants access to Social Services?

May 24th, President Felipe Calderón signed into law a new and much more liberal Migration Law. The Mexican Senate and subsequently the House had unanimously approved the migration bill that led to this new law on February 24th and April 29th, respectively. Some of the most significant principles of this new law deal with the rights of migrants. The new law guarantees that foreigners and Mexican nationals will receive equal treatment under Mexican law and decriminalizes undocumented in-migration, reducing it to an administrative infraction, punishable with a fine of up to 100 days' worth of minimum wage. [1] Under this equality principle all immigrants, regardless of status, are granted the right to access education and health services and are entitled to due process. Mechanisms aimed at promoting family unity are now in place. Moreover, before the government takes action (e.g. deportation) with respect to migrant children and other vulnerable individuals (women, seniors, the handicapped and victims of crime) their specific needs must be prioritized and adequate services must be provided. Migrants are also granted judicial rights that they previously lacked, such as the right to due process. In addition, the law also calls for establishing a Center for Trust Evaluation and Control which will be charged with the task of training and certifying immigration personnel in hopes of curtailing corruption practices. All Institute of Migration officials are to meet the same standards as the rest of the country's security agencies. Government officials found to be in violation of this law are now subject to stiff penalties, including monetary fines and imprisonment..

    After Obama-Care is fully implemented, that may be required for many of us.

    You left out that they must enter legally, and if they don't they get deported after they serve their time in prison.
