Boxer Pushes for Health Funds for Uninsured Immigrants
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) is pushing for an amendment to an immigration bill (S 744) before the U.S. Senate that would provide at least $250 million to help state and local governments cover the cost of health care for uninsured immigrants seeking legal status. The immigration legislation would prevent the use of federal funding on health care for undocumented immigrants.
