Sarika Saxena, Health Justice Staff Attorney, testified on behalf of New York Lawyers for the Public Interest at the Budget Hearing held by New York City Council’s Committee on Immigration. Ms. Saxena thanked City Council for its support of NYLPI’s immigrant-focused programs through the Immigrant Health Initiative and has requested for their continued support. Given the delicate political climate and ever-changing legal landscape under the current federal Administration, NYLPI’s client communities and immigrant-health focused programs, UndocuCare program connecting uninsured New Yorkers to health coverage and health in immigration detention facilities, are front and center in the fight. Ms. Saxena’s testimony also detailed the current immigrant-health needs of NYLPI’s client communities and discussed NYLPI’s cutting-edge strategies to address those needs. Enclosed are her remarks to the Committee on Immigration.
