    Illegal immigrants easily get driver's license, credit cards, even Obamacare

    'DACAmented': Illegal immigrants easily get driver's license, credit cards, even Obamacare | WashingtonExaminer.com

    President Obama’s 2012 program to defer deportation of young illegal immigrants greatly eased their ability to get jobs, credit cards, bank accounts, driver’s licenses and even Obamacare despite their undocumented status, according to a new Harvard University report.

    The review of over 2,000 young illegals given relief from deportation by Obama’s June 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, found that many have won the same benefits as U.S. citizens, including higher education despite the failure of the so-called Dream Act that led to the president's initiative.

    “Since receiving DACA, many have obtained new jobs and internships. Some have also opened bank accounts and obtained credit cards,” said the study just published in the journal American Behavioral Scientist.
    All that's left is a voter registration card.

    We just voted down an attempt by our legislature to create a DL for illegals here in Oregon.

    No, wrong. It is impossible for them to get voter registration cards. It's impossible for legal Americans to get them, especially minorities. It's a Republican plot.

    I thought Obama insisted that illegals were not going to get O'care? Joe Wilson was right. You lie, Mr. President.

    As a supporter of DACA, this is good news.


    To me atleast.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Listen, you're taking WashingtonExaminer.com at face value in order to call the President of the United States a liar.

    Do I have to explain to you further what you should do?

    Actually the WE article is based upon a published Harvard study.

    " significant share of our respondents have reported obtaining health care since "

    The headline seems to translate this as "obtaining Obamacare." But is that what it means? To me, "obtaining health care" means "going to the doctor." Which is something illegal immigrants can do, yes. That's not the same thing as getting free, taxpayer-funded health care as this article tries to imply.

    Here's the thing you need to understand about the media in general:

    Writing an article about a published study does not necessarily mean the article accurately represents it.

    "significant share of our respondents have reported obtaining health care since "

    This was in the article, a quote from the study. But what does this mean? I would translate "obtaining health care" as "going to a doctor." Yes, illegal immigrants can do that. Is this the same thing as "getting Obamacare?" What does "getting Obamacare" even mean? Signing up for a health insurance plan on the insurance exchange? Yeah, anybody can do that. It's a product sold by a business. You don't need to be a US citizen to buy health insurance.

    The article is fairly straightforward in it's reporting on the content of the study. Obtaining health care in this context means going to the doctor and not having their status as illegals reported, as well as being paid for by the public.
