President Obama: Ensure Health Equity for Immigrants

President Obama: Ensure Health Equity for Immigrants

Please ensure equity and full inclusion of immigrant families by supporting an immigration reform package that includes health benefits for all, regardless of immigration status. Our lives depend on it.

Why is this important?

Every year, millions of Americans are locked out of our country’s health care system because of federal policies that prohibit some immigrants, including legal permanent residents, from obtaining health benefits. These are bad policies that cost lives and money. They are policies that were not remedied during health care reform. They should be addressed now, as the country moves forward to fix the broken immigration system.
