No one should ever have to choose between seeking medical care and staying in this country. But that is exactly the situation many people will find themselves in if proposed changes to U.S. immigration policy are permitted to proceed.
According to the new changes, an immigrant here legally can be denied permanent residency if they have been a recipient of Medicaid, SNAP (formerly food stamps), federal housing assistance, or other anti-poverty programs. This is just plain wrong.
I hope members of Congress will stand up against any policy changes that cut families off from medical care, and nutrition and housing assistance.
