Thousands Of Young California Immigrants Eligible For Coverage - Though Often They Donít Know It
Kaiser Health News ^ | March 17, 2014 | By Anna Gorman

--snip-- The White House announced in 2012 that young immigrants like Velazquez who came to the U.S. as children and attended school or served in the military could apply to temporarily remain in the country without fear of deportation.

The two-year status, offered under a program known as “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” can be renewed but does not include a path to citizenship.

These young people are not eligible for the free or subsidized insurance coverage offered under the nation’s health reform law. The law extends coverage to immigrants living in the country lawfully – with some restrictions − and excludes millions of others who came here unlawfully or overstayed their visas.

But California is one of just a few states that is funding coverage for many young immigrants in the deferred action program. Up to 125,000 low-income immigrants statewide could qualify under the state’s Medi-Cal program for the poor, according to a report by University of California researchers.

Many in this group are expected to remain uninsured, however, because they are not aware of their eligibility, have trouble enrolling or are worried about the impact on other relatives here illegally.

They’re not immigrants, they’re ILLEGALS.

In ten years, it’ll be “160 million border-locked Mexican immigrants eligible for Food Stamps, ObamaCare, and voting rights, and don’t know it.”

We are so screwed. I'm thinking of starting an "America's Demise" Doomsday clock, wherein the remaining, tattered remains of our constitutional republic is finally shredded.

In keeping with such time pieces, I'm setting the clock at 11:30. At 12:00 total anarchy reigns.

DEM VOTE FRAUD ALERT: Illegals do not need O/Care---they can get free healthcare anytime they frickin' want it. This is a ruse to get illegals on the Democrat voter rolls.

O/Care exchanges are also voter registration sites.


OREGON LIVE REPORT ---O/Care "accidentally" enrolls 4000 illegals Hah. Enrolling illegals was no accident-----the Obamacare web sites are also voter registration sites.


Looks like vote-crazed Oregon Dems got 4000 illegal votes (that we know of) to help them survive looming 2014 midterms.

Obama/Dem voter fraud is at Mach One speed---trying to overcome the pending catastrophic midterm losses---every conniving O/Care exchange is on high alert to pull off this scam.
