First Focus is pleased to cosponsor a briefing on how immigration reform will impact children and other immigrants’ access to health, nutrition, and public benefits. How does the Senate immigration bill deal with health and public benefits? What opportunities are there to improve these policies? What’s at stake for health care providers and the safety net? The briefing will present new data from the Migration Policy Institute on the unauthorized population, including their health insurance coverage.

  • Priscilla Huang, Asian Pacific Islander American Health Forum
