--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 nations 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 states 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.
How does an illegal alien qualify for military service?
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.”
Not ten years, ten months.
So don’t frickin’ tell them!!
In keeping with such time pieces, I'm setting the clock at 11:30. At 12:00 total anarchy reigns.
You beat me to it. THEY ARE ILLEGAL AlIENS, not immigrants.
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.
