Physicians call for better access to health care for immigrants
Date:4/7/2011

This could create a public health emergency resulting in enormous costs to the health care system, including costs associated with correctional health care during periods of detention.

    "Any national immigration policy will need to balance the legitimate needs and concerns to control our borders and to equitably differentiate in publicly-supported services for those who fully comply with immigration laws and those who do not," concluded Dr. Ralston. "However, access to health care for immigrants is crucial to the overall population of the U.S. We all have a vested interest in ensuring that all residents have access to necessary care."
