GOP Pushes Back on Biden’s ObamaCare Eligibility for Illegal Immigrants

Let’s break it down. The Biden administration rolled out a new rule that would extend eligibility for ObamaCare to tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of undocumented immigrants.

No big surprise there.

But hold the phone, Republicans in Congress are pushing back.

They claim this move incentivizes illegal immigration.

Duh, you think?

That’s the whole plan.

Rep. Nancy Mace (R) is introducing a resolution to put an end to this.

Fox News reports:

A recent rule announced by the Biden administration that would make tens of thousands of illegal immigrants eligible for ObamaCare is facing Republican resistance in Congress – with a lawmaker moving to stop what she says is a move to incentivize illegal immigration.

Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., is introducing a resolution of disapproval of a rule announced last week that would allow illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and are protected under an Obama-era order to be eligible for ObamaCare.

The administration announced that those enrolled under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will be allowed to access ObamaCare through and state-based marketplaces.

The administration says it predicts that the rule, which will go into effect just days before the 2024 presidential election, will result in over 100,000 uninsured illegal immigrants accessing health insurance. The rule does so by making what HHS calls “technical modifications” to the definition of “lawfully present” used to determine eligibility.

The resolution expresses congressional disapproval of the rule. A resolution would need to be passed by the House and Senate and either signed into law by the president, or gain enough votes to override a veto.

“Joe Biden, ‘Border Czar’ Kamala Harris, and impeached DHS Secretary Mayorkas flung our borders wide open, caused an invasion of our country by illegal aliens, and prioritized giving taxpayer benefits to illegal aliens over American citizens,” Mace said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “This rule to give taxpayer subsidized healthcare to 100,000 illegal aliens is yet another example of this administration putting America Last and actively incentivizing illegal immigration.”

Mace has been vocal about Obamacare for two years now.
