Illegal Alien Heads Obamacare Navigator Program in NYCBy James R. Edwards Jr., October 15, 2013
Now that the Obamacare health insurance "exchanges" are live, experiencing technical difficulties, and facing growing scrutiny for risking Americans` privacy, Americans concerned about just where their hard-earned tax dollars are going might want to know more about Obamacare "navigators." Hint: They don`t carry maps and compasses, and they aren`t carefully vetted government agents, though their groups are collecting millions in taxpayer money. Some of the navigators are illegal aliens themselves.
The state of New York has designated the labor union front group Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York, or ROC-NY, as one of its navigator groups — basically authorized and paid-for community organizing for Obamacare. And guess who ROC-NY`s lead is for its health program? Maria Marroquin, an illegal alien from Peru who`s a DREAM activist. It would be hard to make up something this outrageous.
Marroquin practices the political tactics of left-wing extremists, flouting her illegal immigration status before cowed law enforcers and politicians. She has signed up for the end-run DACA amnesty program to launder her status, Associated Press reported. Obama`s DACA invigorated Marroquin and her ilk to go forth and break the law even more.
"This [DACA] just showed the power that we have and the power of organizing to create some sort of change," said Maria Marroquin, 25, a pre-law student at Dominican University near Chicago who came to the U.S. illegally from Peru when she was 13.
Marroquin founded Dream Activist Pennsylvania in 2009 and was one of seven young people arrested when they sat down in a downtown Atlanta street in April 2011 as an act of civil disobedience.
Marroquin`s DREAM Activist Pennsylvania thumbs its nose at the rule of law on which American government and society rest. The group describes its position: "We reject society`s notion of a model immigrant and the demand for cultural assimilation." Obamacare`s implementers declined to check the backgrounds of prospective navigators, regardless of the obvious potential for crime, fraud, and abuse. So, even an illegal alien radical has become an Obamacare navigator.[More]
There`s nothing illegal about this DREAMer being involved in this program—except that the whole Obama Administrative Amnesty is illegal, and an impeachable offense.
