Tell Congress: Deliver a COVID-19 relief bill that works — eliminate barriers to care & support immigrant families
Our nation is facing a pandemic that does not discriminate and threatens to wipe out people’s livelihoods and devastate our economy. To make matters worse, the Trump administration’s “public charge” regulation has already deterred countless immigrant families from getting the health care they need.
But lawmakers on both sides of the aisle agree: we are all in this together. That means we are all harmed by public charge and when immigrants are excluded from our health care system.
That’s why it’s crucial that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Leader Chuck Schumer deliver a COVID-19 relief package that 1) eliminates barriers to health screenings, 2) provides diagnosis and treatment, and 3) supports other basic needs for immigrant families.
Among the most important lessons of this pandemic is that we are all interdependent. Economic stimulus that excludes immigrants who are working and paying taxes leaves us all vulnerable.
Take 3 minutes to ask Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer to do the right thing: pass a COVID-19 relief bill that works — one that ensures that we are all safe, healthy, and have the economic means to thrive.
