Skip to comments.Obama Assures Hispanics: Illegal Relatives Won't be Deported Through Obamacare Info

Hispanics should not be afraid that their illegal relatives will be discovered and deported through Obamacare enrollment information, President Obama said Tuesday during an interview with Univision Deportes.
The Hill reports:
Well, the main thing for people to know is that any information you get, you know, asked with respect to buying insurance, does not have anything to do with the rules governing immigration, Obama said. And you know, you can qualify if youre a legal resident, if you are legally present in the United States.
You know, if you have a family where some people are citizens or legally here, and others are not documented, the immigration people will never get that information.
Adolf Falcon, the senior vice president of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, told The Hill that Hispanic families are wary of Obamas assurances because of his record on deportations.
It is a big concern of mixed status families they hear [the presidents] assurance, but because of the level of deportations that have happened, theres a lot of families that dont know whether they can trust that assurance, he said. It creates an atmosphere of concern.
Obama encouraged Hispanics to enroll even if "they're in a mixed-family status." Meaning, for instance, that parents who are in the country illegally should not be afraid "the immigration people" will deport them if they enroll their legal child.
Hispanic sign-ups would create a substantial boost to Obamacare enrollment numbers. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services found:
As many as 1 in 4 uninsured individuals who are eligible for coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace nationwide are Latino. Through the Marketplace, 10.2 million uninsured Latinos have new opportunities for affordable health insurance coverage. The majority (62 percent) of uninsured Latinos live in California, Texas, and Florida; about half (4.6 million) are between the ages of 18 and 35.
Obama seems desperate to win over this demographic. Perhaps after his poorly crafted pitch to Hispanics last week (in which he told them to prioritize health care over cable and cell phones), he is trying a new approach.
If you like your illegal family ... you can keep your illegal family ???
Don’t believe a thing this imposter says. He’s the type of guy that if you loan him a $1M he’ll pay $100K to knock you off so he doesn’t have to pay you back. If there’s any doubt he’s a liar here’s a little list to review, amigo:
What a low-life scumbucket tactic to keep Obombcare going....if they were in my neighborhood I’d have some flyers printed up in Spanish warning them what his plan is really about...
I’m surprised he doesn’t have a mobile beer store there giving out free beer if you enroll.
That’s a no brainer their needed for voting.
A Republican President would be impeached over this.
These Dem morons......
The Spanish version website for 0Care is totally bleeped up. I saw this on Fox a few days ago. So the Hispanic signups will have to be done manually, the old fashioned way. Meaning how many will be able sign up?
Another clear sign of delusion and desperation.
Hispanics are not signing up for the same reason the rest of us aren’t signing up. They can’t afford it. So once again, liberals assume there’s nothing wrong with Obamacare, it’s that Hispanics fear being deported.
We should stop calling these “executive orders”. They should be called “legislature nullifications”.
Obama and the Democrats are LAW-LESS because Republican “leaders” are BALL-LESS!!
Which means that they will, just as soon as their usefulness to the Democrat Party is over.
Suffice it to say that B. Hussein Obama “is on the wrong side of History.
Might as well put all that extra money I now have to pay for my family's health insurance to good use.
do I have this right? Illegals can sun up.
So during the SOTU speech when the congressman yelled “LIAR” he was correct.
Another lie to add to the list, drive the costs up, and let illegals be more comfortable in their schemes to stay here.
Can't take health insurance away from all those children.
