    The answer is letter C.


    The question above is asking for the cause-and-effect relationship of the statement. Among the choices, letter C best describes the relationship.

    Cause: The number of undocumented immigrants increased.

    Effect: Senator proposes Limits on Health Care for Undocumented Workers.

    "Undocumented immigrants" are people who live in a country without registering as a citizen. This means that their status is unclear, since they are not registered. Being an undocumented immigrant means that the person does not possess the legal rights of a U. S. citizen (if he's staying in the USA). So, this will result in the Senator proposing a limit on their health care. This means that they cannot enjoy the benefits of having full access to health care.
