When Obama said these words, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) shouted out from the House

I'm missing the vindication part of the story. Health care grants to target services to migrant and seasonal farm workers?

BTW - This is not an "Obamacare" issue (just more right wing blogger spew):

Federally funded health centers are a key source of care for migrant and seasonal farmworkers. In 2002, 125 of the nation’s 843 federally funded health centers received funds specifically targeted to meet migrant health needs. These centers serviced some 670,000 migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families. An additional 247 health centers, which did not receive a specific migrant subsidy, served another 39,000 migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families.

"with funds from the Obamacare health reform law.">

Your link was from CSN, taglined "The Right News, Right Now:". Not CNN.

The grant funds, which have been funded by HHS well before the Affordable Care Act, target health clinics in areas with a population of migrant workers. Why do you assume that they are illegal?

So, your opinion is Obummercare funds will not go to illegals? Why would you assume such a thing?

No, Obama promised that health insurance coverage would not be subsidized for illegal aliens. Where in this aid are IA singled out for healthcare coverage?

Actually illegal aliens has the same access to care under the Obama administration as they did under the Reagan admin after the passing of Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act of 1986.

Moving along, nothing to see here but more faux rage from the right wing blogosphere.
