Some immigrants excluded from healthcare overhaul
PHOENIX (AP) — President Barack Obama has championed two sweeping policy changes that could transform how people live in the United States: affordable health care for all and a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants illegally in the country. But many immigrants will have to wait more than a decade to qualify for health care benefits under the proposed immigration overhaul being debated by Congress, ensuring a huge swath of people will remain uninsured as the centerpiece of Obama's health care law launches next year. Lawmakers pushing the immigration bill said adding more recipients to an already costly benefit would make it unaffordable.
