GREAT DETERRENT: The Trump Administration is Ending The “medical deferment action” Program For ILLEGALS

The Trump administration is ending a policy that allows immigrants to avoid deportation if they are receiving life-saving medical treatment in the U.S.
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the agency within the Department of Homeland Security that specializes in the country’s immigration system, revealed that it is no longer allowing essential medical treatment in the U.S. to be a basis to prevent deportation.
The “medical deferment action” program has allowed immigrants to remain in the country for two-year periods if they can prove they are receiving essential medical treatment not necessarily available in their home countries. The program does not provide lawful immigration status to an alien, does not “excuse” periods of unlawful presence in the U.S., and can be terminated by USCIS at any time.
In a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation, a USCIS spokesperson made clear that this policy won’t change other deferment programs, such as DACA, and does not apply to military personnel.
“USCIS field offices will no longer consider non-military requests for deferred action, to instead focus agency resources on faithfully administering our nation’s lawful immigration system. This redirection of agency resources does not affect DACA or other deferred action requests processed at USCIS service centers under other policies, regulations, or court orders,” an agency spokesperson said in a Tuesday statement.
