ACTION: Call your Senator NOW to ensure immigrants have access to health care!
As I type the Senate Finance Committee is considering amendments to the healthcare reform bill, a lot of which contain bad anti-immigrant measures, restricting immigrants' access to healthcare.
We need everyone to call and let the Senate know that we are watching and that they cannot keep playing politics and scapegoating immigrants.
Call the Senate switchboard now:
- English Switchboard: 1-866-974-8813
- Spanish Switchboard: 1-866-584-3909
- Immigrants must have access to affordable health care. They work and pay taxes and are raising families; they should not be barred from accessing the health care exchange by waiting periods or other obstacles.
- New verification requirements will hurt U.S. citizens and immigrants alike and are costly, unnecessary and burdensome. Undocumented immigrants are already barred from health care and Medicaid subsidies. Oppose new onerous verification measures!
