Officials say there were over 200,000 illegal crossings at the southern border last month and a record three million migrants that crossed over the last year. The increase is putting a strain on cities and health care systems. NBC News’ Julia Ainsley visited a hospital where migrants make up a quarter of the patients. (Correction: An earlier version of this story misstated that one-quarter of patient visits to New York City public hospitals are migrants. In fact, the 25 percent applies to the number of migrants citywide who are treated at Bellevue Hospital, according to the hospital.)
