Tell Congress: Deliver a COVID-19 health and stimulus bill that actually works for immigrant families
Sponsored by Protecting 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.
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. But the legislation that Congress passed to respond to the COVID-19 leaves immigrant families out from critical programs.
That’s why it’s crucial that Congress immediately delivers new COVID-19 legislation 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 leaves us all vulnerable.
Take 3 minutes to ask your Senator and Representative 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.
