Obama Promises Illegals: Obamacare Sign Up Info Won’t Be Used for Deportation

Admits “prosecutorial discretion” on immigration has already stretched his “administrative capacity very far.”

In a joint town hall with Telemundo and Univision, President Obama made a pledge that his administration will not use Obamacare sign up data to deport illegal aliens:

“Will we hear from you a pledge, a personal promise, that the information provided in the registration process will not be used for deportation purposes in this country?”

“Absolutely,” Obama said, putting his hand down for emphasis.

“It’s true that the undocumented are not eligible [for Obamacare], that’s how the law was written, but if you are a U.S. citizen or you have a legal presence in this country, you are eligible,” he said. “And none of the information that is provided in order for you to obtain health insurance is in any way transferred to immigration services. So that’s something we’ve been very clear about. If you live in a mixed status family, then the son who could potentially be eligible for the children’s health insurance program or some other mechanism to get health insurance, he needs to be signed up. And the mother should not be fearful that in any way that’s going to affect — of course I understand the fear.”

Obama blamed Congress for deportations. And he said he has already stretched his “administrative capacity very far” by taking immigration actions using “prosecutorial discretion,” but that he was “very confident that was the right thing to do.”

The president finished answering this question by saying, “So, for everybody out there who’s in a mixed family, there is no sharing of the data from the health care plan in to immigration services. You should feel confident that if somebody in your family is eligible, you should sign them up.”

The questions were asked of Obama in Spanish and translated by an onsite translator.

    Same time ago I accidentally run into this: “My gas bill has doubled. My housekeeper, who is Mexican, said that she was also concerned because her Latino neighborhood received letters informing the they had credit so did not need to pay gas bill but worried if true. I called the gas company. and a frustrated lady said “yes it is and believe me it was not our idea it came for the corporate office policy”. Sempra supposedly is the Corp but she said Bell..So, this official order is just an official move on an existing rubbery of tax payers. Then: if Issa would address the real issue we might get somewhere. The IRS action on Tea Party etc is not too relevant or new to the general public . BUT, CNN did uncover a decision made by IRS or made by someone in Congress and passed it to the IRS, which stated that Latino could deduct all dependents for tax refund including all relatives and children in Mexico, Some had 20 relatives. CNN went to the name of one person at the border and there was only one child, he said the others were in Mexico. When asked if he did not feel wrong to do that he said something that makes sense for a poor Mexican but: “we were told to do it the US government wanted us to have it and if the US government want to be nice to us we just say THANK YOU. CNN is pretty big why no response or follow up? After all we are talking about Billions Tax money sent to these people as return? Nissa should demand who gave those orders, yes it leads to Congress but….so what! that is where we have to clean out and STATE. I assume you have read the list of “who is who” in the Ukraine issue and who fired the shots. We have, By official US rules, Constitution and historical values that gives us the right to an answer to all of this. One is why the major Media ignore all of this, two, if that misused “anti-Semitic appellative slapped on any one that even mention Israel or Jews, and that often comes from non Jews American well paid by AIPAC and etc. Who is guilty, bribe taker or briber is irrelevant THE LAW IS NOT BEING ENFORCED. I wish Rand Paul would take up where it really demand a reply. You work on it if you can I have been blocked and you see why: not an extremist, just too darned realist and Constitutional. . Incidentally, some time ago I accidentally run into where World Press originated and all those other little spy social that came along. The tapes show them all in Jerusalem, all Israeli trained young people. I was just looking where the money came for Facebook. Israel apparently has a Young SS Brigade like Mussolini had “young Italians” groups, they train the young. McCain had a similar program for that “21 Century America Plan” here they had TV Radio Programs on Radio TV.
