Health Care for Undocumented Immigrants?

The U.S. Affordable Care Act makes no provisions for undocumented (unauthorized) immigrants to that country. Consider the implications of this seldom-publicized aspect of the (ACA):

[T]he ACA’s fundamental changes to the healthcare system exclude undocumented immigrants entirely from any potential for improvement to their current situations, and, arguably, will make their circumstances much worse. . . . The means and the services on which they relied before the ACA—whether the volunteer work of physicians, community health clinics, and/or emergency rooms—will likely undergo policy changes that direct resources away from those without healthcare coverage.*

Lack of health care is likely to worsen the situation of undocumented immigrants, who may have escaped from horrendous economic and political conditions in their native country. Is it then morally permissible to deny health care to them? In any case, they have human rights. Do these rights require the United States to provide basic health care to them? Why or why not?
