MCN Applauds Immigration Accountability Executive Actions; Calls for Expansion of ACA to Cover Immigrants Affected
Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN) applauds President Obama’s Immigration Accountability Executive Actions, which address several key weaknesses in our US immigration policy. His executive action allows an estimated 5 million people -- unauthorized immigrants with US citizen or permanent resident children, as well as some unauthorized immigrants brought to the US as children -- to apply for temporary visas in order to remain in the US without threat of removal. We support this effort as a meaningful change that will provide humanitarian relief for many immigrant families.
