Daily Caller ^ | 10/28/2013 | Caroline May

The Obama administration is assuring immigrants that applications for Obamacare will not be used to enforce immigration law.

“[Immigration and Customs Enforcement] does not use information about such individuals or members of their household that is obtained for purposes of determining eligibility for such coverage as the basis for pursuing a civil immigration enforcement action against such individuals or members of their household,” a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement memo reads.

We only enforce "the law of the land" when it suits our purposes.

And this will be a prime cause of CW-II, coming soon to a town near you.

Because - when my rates go up to support ILLEGAL ALIENS, this is war.

Period.

Ironically, some of the few whose healthcare/Insurance status that won’t change is illegal aliens. Why would they sign up for anything. They can still go to the emergency room with the sniffles for free.

And they don’t have to pay the fine if they don’t have health insurance.

I thought Obamacare didn’t apply to illegals? Oh, I guess only for those applying for freebies.

I must admit it’s fun watching Obamatollah try and FAIL in certain Communist takeover tactics.

Yes he succeeds in destroying parts of the economy. He might run insurance companies out of business.

But in the end, Marxism doesn’t work. It’s self-limiting bc most folks wind up on the street begging for stale bread (as the USSR demonstrated). At that point, it’s a matter of time before the new Mussolini or Stalin gets hanged from a bridge by starving mobs.

ICE doesn’t enforce immigration law now.

Even though its the law of the land.

That’s what doesn’t make any sense. Illegals don’t qualify for Obamacare, but if they do apply for it, it won’t be held against them.

I’ll go against the grain here, and say that I think this is a GOOD thing. Information submitted to the Obamacare websites should be used ONLY for determining Obamacare eligibility (well, it shouldn’t be used for ANY purposes, since the sites shouldn’t exist, but still . . .). Opening the door to some law enforcement purposes will inevitably lead to other law enforcement agencies getting their grubby hands on the data and using it as a de facto national database for other purposes.

ICE couldn’t be bothered to scout out a Mexican protest parade, what makes anyone think they’d concern themselves with an ObamaCare applicant?

I’d like to see how the IRS is going to collect the fine from their tax returns. Wait, no returns... never mind.

Don’t be naive. They will use whatever the glean against you, I, and the rest of America, just not illegals and other dim party recruits.

On the bright side — Obama’s Legacy is riddled with scandals and broken promises.

As long as they all use SSN 042-68-4425 they should be OK.

It seems to be universally acceptable for illegals.

Sign up all they want -- no tax credit.
