Support Healthcare Access to Immigrants
The Senate Judicary Committee is considering S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act. A key piece of this bill is the Hirono-16 Amendment, which would expand immigrant health care access. The amendement can be found here. The amendment strives to increase access to care for pregnant women, children, and legal immigrants allowing for access to Medicaid and federal benefits for which they would otherwise be ineligible as legal immigrants aspiring for citizenship.
Keep the pressure on Congress to support health care access and other important allied issues!
