It's kind of hard to fake cystic fibrosis or cancer...
You come on a tourist visa and then claim you have cancer and need to stay.
The unofficial posture is that few people can afford to live without working for more than six months. Because people coming to the U.S. on B2 [tourist] visas are not allowed to work, they will in all likelihood be issued a maximum six-month I-94. If the entrant is seeking medical treatment that may quite reasonably be expected to take more than six months, the determining officer can issue a one-year I-94 without consulting a supervisor.
I lay the blame on those abusing the system and those championing that abuse.

Like you feel the pennies it's costing you! Like you'll feel any financial relief when these people have left the country, and the planet, thanks to Trump's thriftiness.
The Trump administration has seemingly yielded to pressure against their new plan to deport migrants seeking life-saving medical care—at least to an extent. Responding to widespread outrage over reports that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services had suddenly shut down its “deferred action” program for non-military requestors, which granted a reprieve from deportation to undocumented migrants seeking life-saving care and their relatives, USCIS announced Monday that they would reopen deferred action cases that were pending when the agency ended the program on August 7. “While limiting USCIS’ role in deferred action is appropriate, USCIS will complete the caseload that was pending on August 7,” the notice says, also noting that those whose requests had been denied as a result of the program ending “have not been targeted for deportation.”
