The same thing will happen under Obamacare. One of the selling points of Obamacare was that it would stop this sort of thing and of course that is not even within the realm of possibility. We are not going to turn people away from care.

Israel has been monitoring Hezbollah terrorists coming over our borders for more than a decade.
