Any parent of any child under 18 regardless of the child's status is eligible for SNAP, WIC, Medicaid, and Section 8 vouchers. There is even a special program called Emergency Medicaid for pregnant women who otherwise would not qualify for Medicaid. In fact the policies are so loosely monitored that anywhere along the border, it is normal to see the children streaming across the international bridges every morning to attend US schools. It is normal for pregnant women to come to the US for their medical care because in the US it is free and in Mexico they would have to pay $200. All they need is a utility statement which is easy to forge and readily available for purchase for just a few dollars.
