Coverage for all march

Immigrant New Yorkers are calling on Governor Cuomo and our legislators to take action on immigrant access to healthcare. Our Staff Attorney and UndocuCare Project Manager, Sarika Saxena, spoke at the rally this afternoon to urge our representatives to ensure Temporary Protected Status recipients have access to Medicaid and to expand the Child Health Plus age limit from 19 to 29. Call Governor Cuomo’s office today at (518) 474-8390 and demand that his Adminstration support these initiatives. #Coverage4All #HereToStay

Sarika Saxena, Staff Attorney and Project Manager at New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, said: “2019 will be a key year as the future of thousands of immigrant youth and TPS recipients remains in the balance. Washington is stuck in a partisan gridlock, but we as a state can stand up for our parents, friends, and neighbors. We must continue to uphold our progressive values and provide for our most vulnerable residents as our state constitution requires. By including immigrant healthcare in the 2019 budget, the Governor and our legislators will show that they too share their constituents’ vision to build an equitable society that serves everyone.”
