Courage to Fight for the Future of Our Country

“Sadly, newly-arrived legal immigrants are NOT eligible to participate in Medicaid. They are barred for five years. This restriction is well-documented by organizations ranging from the Kaiser Family Foundation (http://www.kff.org/healthreform/upload/7982.pdf) to the Center for American Progress (http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2009/09/immigration_health.html). Health care isn't a zero-sum game; when more people are covered everyone benefits.”

“@queequegtheory - Thanks for helping educate people. It's too bad you can't stand up for more than just poor legal immigrants. What about the humanity of helping someone out who doesn't have papers and might just need to seek medical care once in a while? It's too bad people when people only see the charity in helping out 'legal' immigrants versus those who are 'illegal' and in the process lose the entire argument. Most of the people who marched were for legalization -- meaning they would probably support human rights for people who are undocumented. Imagine if you thought of more than just of people who are here legally - you could transform Medicaid by actually expanding it to help everyone who needs it.”

ICE and Big Business: Too Close for Comfort

“The bottom line is that keeping immigrants - or anyone - from being able to report labor abuse without fear of retaliation will end up hurting us all. This isn't partisan politics, it's common sense.”
