Community health and wellness rely on people feeling safe when accessing care and services. When residents feel safe, they proactively engage in all efforts to keep their families and communities healthy. Sickness and disease do not distinguish between those with or without documents. That is why we stand against anything that presses members in our community to make the false choice between the risk of deportation and health. When a significant portion of our community avoids health care, the fragile barrier between illness and wellness is easily breached.
