More than a quarter of young immigrants protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, better known as DACA, lack health insurance and face burdens depriving them from accessing care, according to new data first shared with NBC News.

report published Friday by the immigrant rights nonprofit National Immigration Law Center documenting the findings of a recent survey finds that 27% of DACA recipients reported not being covered by any kind of health insurance or other health care plan.

The results suggest that of the more than 580,000 young adults without legal status who are allowed to work and study without fear of deportation under the Obama-era DACA program, close to 157,000 are estimated to be uninsured.
