Guttmacher Policy Review;Winter2013, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p2
The article observes that immigration reform has been back on the U.S. federal policy agenda, following the 2012 elections. It suggests that the present situation presents a needed opportunity to raise awareness and remove restrictions on immigrants' access to health coverage. The article also indicates that the gaps in immigrant's health coverage are great and suggests that healthcare be included in the issues of border security and citizenship in the immigration reform debate.
