Obamacare and DACA Facts and Myths

Obamacare and DACA Facts and Myths

At the current day scenario many of the young adults, as well as children who are actually the immigrants in the United States of America, are attending schools and colleges. For this situation, we need to thank the DACA legislation. But after the Presidential election of Donald Trump, many of them are spending nights in fear as their future may be in jeopardy. At this juncture, the question may arise what is DACA? Let us now explain the fact of DACA.

What is DACA?

The term DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It is actually a policy related to American immigration. The policy allows individuals or immigrants who were brought to the United States of America illegally as children under the administration of the then President of the state Barak Obama used to receive a renewable time frame of two years of deferred action from deporting them and also making them eligible for the work permit in the country. The DACA program was launched in the year 2012 July. The law of DACA acted as a great relief to the young people or young adults who were brought to the country as children. Under the law, this genre of the society sighed a relief as they will no more face the situation of deportation and can enjoy work permit as well as can apply for driver’s license. But to be eligible for the program or policy a person cannot have a track record of any kind of assault, burglary or serious misdemeanors on their records.  

The then President of the United States Barak Obama sought to expand the policy and the expansion was program was via executive action that took place in the year November 2014.  And after that, a new program was established to be known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, (DAPA), to delay deportation for parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents. As per specific reports approximately around 5.2 million people received deportation relief between DACA’s expansion and creation of DARPA’s. These two programs were ultimately blocked in 2015 through a lawsuit filed by 26 states, and also by a verdict provided by federal judge’s injunction.

The DACA act, unlike its counterpart proposed DREAM Act, does not provide way or path to citizenship for the participants usually known as Dreamers. The policy was announced by the then President Barack Obama on June 15, 2012, under the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the policy started accepting applications for the program from. August 15, 2012.

How Obama care affects DACA recipients?

In some states of the United States of America Dreamers or DACA participants at times may become eligible for Medicaid program under the Affordable Care law. In these state’s only funding of state is used. Cases may occur or it may happen that DACA recipients may get affected by the rules of employer’s benefits and protections offered by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care law.  The DACA applicants are also exempted from marketplace and cost assistance program of the mandates.

Though the DACA law does not offer US citizenship but it helps to provide all essential benefits to an immigrant of the nation.
