Immigrants, Babies and the MVNHS©

"Walk into Ealing Hospital and you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a foreign land ... new figures revealed that 80 per cent of the children born at the West London hospital over the previous year were to foreign nationals."

And it's not just labor and delivery costs, either:

"(A) team of translators, funded by the taxpayer, has to be on hand around the clock."

And now to the crux of the matter:

"(R)enewed concern that the NHS is being overwhelmed by an influx of foreign mothers keen to take advantage of free healthcare."

Sound familiar?

The fault here lies, atypically, not with the MVNHS©, but with the British government's immigration policies coupled with a system geared to provide free (albeit sporadically qualified) care to everyone, legal or not.

And tell me, dear readers, how this could be expected to play out differently under ObamaCare© and our current immigration policies?
