CMA statement on proposed policy linking safety net benefits and immigration status



Statement attributable to:  Theodore M. Mazer, M.D., President of the California Medical Association (CMA)

“CMA believes that everyone, regardless of immigration status, should have access to needed affordable and quality health care. The proposed policy makes utilizing health programs a disqualifier for immigration, and it would have a chilling effect on families accessing health care services while decreasing public health in communities across California. Health care should remain a safe place for all, and we urge the Trump Administration to rethink this irresponsible policy.”
