NYLAG supports this legislation, which removes barriers to affordable health care for immigrants authorized to live and work in the US and allows them to participate in the health care programs their tax dollars support.

Almost two decades ago, politicians began enacting harmful restrictions that have put affordable health coverage out of reach for many immigrants authorized to live and work in the United States. The HEAL Immigrant Women and Families Act would remove political interference so immigrants are able to access the health care their tax dollars support. Further, by restoring access to coverage and allowing immigrants to receive the health care they need, this bill will create healthier communities and a stronger economy.
