On October 25, 2013, ICE's Office of the Director, issued a memorandum confirming that information provided by individuals for purposes of determining eligibility under the Affordable Care Act ("ACA") may not be used to verify their immigration status. Further, the information may not be used as the basis for pursuing a civil immigration enforcement action against such individuals or member of their household. This memorandum is consistent with the laws and regulations outlining the eligibility requirements under the ACA.
