Undocumented immigrants can’t get social security cards, which means they can’t get Medicare, welfare, Social Security or unemployment benefits. They can’t apply for most jobs; they can’t get most credit cards. They’re ineligible for financial aid for college, federally-funded health insurance, or an employment-based health plan. Undocumented immigrants ARE eligible for the draft. They also must pay taxes.
