The Biden administration has announced yet another plan to reward illegal immigrants by providing them with healthcare. This time, it’s Dreamers who are benefiting. The White House has revealed that eligible DACA recipients will have coverage under Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act. This would mean those who entered the country illegally as children and were enrolled in the Obama-era program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) can access healthcare facilities without paying for it.

The Obama administration had started the DACA program in 2012 to ensure that illegal immigrants brought to the U.S as children had opportunities. It seems that the Biden administration is now taking it forward again, disregarding the rules and encouraging more illegals to cross the border.
According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services data, almost 600,000 individuals were actively enrolled in the DACA program in 2022. The latest announcement is another boon from the Biden administration to incentivize more individuals to cross the border illegally, without any repercussions.
Biden and Harris have been very vocal about their belief that healthcare should be a right and not a privilege, but in the end, the American taxpayers will still be the ones paying for it. With massive inflation and rising COVID-19 cases, it’s getting more challenging for American citizens to pay their medical bills, and it’s wrong to prioritize illegal immigrants over them.
The Biden administration has also urged Congress to grant citizenship to DACA recipients. Why grant citizenship to illegal immigrants? This will only invite more people to the US, ignoring the safety and security of US citizens.
The recent decision sends the wrong message that America’s open borders policy is rewarding illegal immigrants for their actions. Many legal immigrants may feel that all their efforts to enter the US legally were futile. It’s time to put the welfare of US citizens first and prioritize their needs before catering to illegal immigrants.
