"In election-year politics, these deserving young people are the big losers when it comes to health care."
Big woop...They are already getting a ' free get out of jail' pass.
They need to get their own insurance instead of expecting medical to be free!

Deserving? Not exactly. So, if they are unable to find work, because now employers get to choose between them, Americans or other illegals. Who do you think those sickeningly greedy employers will pick? Do these "deserving" illegals get to apply for free social services now? You know, services in which they never contributed a dime? How insane is this administration thinking that we can continue to accept and support another country's cast-offs? Newsflash, we are broke. Americans "deserve" so much more, but all they keep getting is the shaft.

The lying, identity-stealing, thieving lowlife illegal aliens throw up a smoke screen about what the whites did to the Indians to hid the fact that they are human trash that Mexico threw over the fence into the US's backyard. Round up these uneducated, vile criminals and deport them and their anchor babies.

To qualify for deferred status, young immigrants must have lived in the country five continuous years or more, attend school or serve in the military, and have no criminal record. It's a humane stopgap measure in lieu of Congress' unwillingness to work on comprehensive immigration reform. Denying recipients' health coverage is pure politics, to stave off charges by Republicans that the Affordable Health Care Act is socialized medicine or a giant welfare program.
