On Nov. 23, immigrant communities organized two events in San Francisco, CA and Washington, D.C. to draw attention to how millions of Americans are being shut out of health reform, despite their undisputed contributions to supporting this country’s economy and public health care systems.
“What we want is simple: everyone living and working hard in this country must have full access to affordable health insurance. It is disappointing and frankly unbelievable that legal immigrants have to wait five years for public health care and that the Senate seeks to deny undocumented immigrants ability to purchase with their own money health insurance through the exchanges,” stated Dae Joong Yoon, executive director of KRC.

Thank you to Korean Americans who join the fight for immigrant rights especially as concerns health care.
