Yep. That’s right. Barry Obama’s world-class web site lays it all out for us:
In order to buy private health insurance through the Marketplace, you must be a U.S. citizen or be lawfully present in the United States. The term “lawfully present” includes immigrants who have:
- “Qualified non-citizen” immigration status without a waiting period (see the definition below)
- Humanitarian statuses or circumstances (including Temporary Protected Status, Special Juvenile Status, asylum applicants, Convention Against Torture, victims of trafficking)
- Valid non-immigrant visas
- Legal status conferred by other laws (temporary resident status, LIFE Act, Family Unity individuals)
Evidence has been discovered that a lot of these border-crashers are being coached by leftist activists — and God knows who else — to claim any of the statuses in bullet point #2 above. The most popular tactic involves seeking protection under the 2008 William Wilberforce Law — passed to protect kids fleeing human traffickers and signed by President George W. Bush just months before he left office. The law requires that all of these kids have hearings before they are deported. The courts that hear these cases have years-long backlogs.
We previously learned that at least 1200 of these little darlings have been dumped covertly within the borders of North Carolina — without any notification being given to the state government. We learned today that 12,300 people in North Carolina need additional immigration documents in order to keep their health insurance. Reading between the lines of the linked article, I think it is safe to interpret “insurance” as Medicaid PAID FOR BY YOU AND ME.
Where are our elected leaders on all of this ???
