As astonishing as that sounds, it is true based on a recent news story that has popped up as a result of several states challenging President Obama’s “DACA” executive order. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or “DACA” is one of our creative president’s executive orders that protects the children of illegals who came here “through no fault of their own”. Now the legal focus is on the use of taxpayer dollars to fund the medical education of these grown children:
But the fate of Ms. Rojas Marquez’s medical education is in flux as the U.S. Supreme Court considers protections for undocumented immigrants in the case of Texas v. United States. In dispute is the constitutionality of two of President Obama’s immigration policies: the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and expanded DACA. The former protects undocumented immigrants who are parents of U.S. citizens from deportation, if they meet certain criteria. The second extends work authorization under the original DACA program from 2 years to 3 years and broadens age requirements.
Texas and 25 other states have sued over the programs, arguing the president does not have the authority to issue the new immigration policies, and that the programs violate the Constitution as well as the Administrative Procedure Act for notice-and-comment rule making. High court justices heard oral arguments April 18. — Internal Medicine Digital News Network, May 12, 2016.
Again, the average taxpayer has no clue. And it is likely that the average and qualified US citizen recently rejected for admission to a US medical school does not either.
