I'd venture to guess that MOSt illegals don't have any false documents. I know I didn't! Pre 9/11 it was very easy to get legitimate documents.
Someone who is looking to hire cheap labor isn't going to request a SS card. Ergo the majority of illegas who come from countries in which 3 dollars an hour is a lot of money aren't going to NEED false documents.

You have a rational right to health care, of course, but not an irrational right to it.
It goes back to the loaf of bread split equally among the whole society, you don't get much. It's free but you don't get a useful amount. But where is the fair trade? If you you say those that play by the rules must support those that don't, something is wrong.
Health care costs money, and you must doing something in trade for it. This is fair. Doing nothing and expecting something is not fair and is an irrational expectation.
I prefer the freedom to try to do what I can to better myself. I do not want to listen to the likes of eco marxist Al Gore lying about carbon dioxide, and then sitting at home in the dark and waiting for death.
As I posted here before there is technology that could scrub the CO2 out of the atmosphere if CO2 is really a problem. Cap and trade is a joke if China and India don't do it. To handicp the whole economy over this false issue is a crime, it is fraud. The eco marxist of course wants economic growth to stop to save the world, so truth does not matter.
The Mexicans choose to come to the USA not Cuba, however they may sneak into Cuba too, but I haven't read about it. I assume they come to the US to make money and send it home, and therefore better themselves.

IMO that is one of the things that sets the US above the barbaric nations you mentioned. Geopolitical lines are B.S. We are all born as children of planet earth. It's sad that governments and many citizens of the world feel like they can "own" land. It's yours, It's theirs, It's mine, It's ours.
You know, it doesn't even have to be "one world government." It can be just as the lines are drawn today: but without the inequality, the suspicion, the injustice, and bigotry that those lines create. If we gave two #s about Mexico, the situation wouldn't be nearly as bad as it is. If it weren't so difficult for someone to immigrate to the US, there wouldn't be as many illegal immigrants, and we'd have nothing to complain about.

So you think no nation should have borders?
Kind of like a one world government kind of thing?
