What Patients Need to Know: Deportation
Many clinicians are concerned for their patients’ well-being during the current US Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) enforcement and removal operations. In the interest of keeping patients and clinicians well informed, we offer the following list of resources on the rights, responsibilities, and protections of individuals during this process. Additionally, we encourage clinicians of patients with ongoing medical conditions who may be subject to deportation to assure the patient and the patient’s family members can sufficiently communicate the medical condition to law enforcement should the patient be apprehended.
