Ostensibly, illegal aliens cannot participate in Obamacare. All other aliens can, including tourists, students and legal permanent residents. However, the Obama Regime is assuring illegal aliens that if they illegally participate in Obamacare, to wit, claiming to be either legal or to be an American citizen, nothing will happen.

The Obama administration is assuring immigrants that applications for Obamacare will not be used to enforce immigration law.
“[Immigration and Customs Enforcement] does not use information about such individuals or members of their household that is obtained for purposes of determining eligibility for such coverage as the basis for pursuing a civil immigration enforcement action against such individuals or members of their household,” a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement memo reads.
The memo explains that such information may only be used for administering the Obamacare program and determining eligibility.
ICE claims that it uses smart and effective immigration enforcement policies.
“Consistent with longstanding ICE practices, information provided by individuals seeking health coverage under a qualified health plan or through an insurance affordability program is not used for immigration enforcement or removal purposes,” ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen explained in an emailed statement.
“ICE is focused on sensible, effective immigration enforcement that prioritizes the removal of criminal aliens and egregious immigration law violators,” she added.
However, "smart and effective" means smart or effective, but an Obamacare amnesty for illegal aliens seeking taxpayer funded healthcare subsidy.
