New Concerns for Latinos and a New Health Plan

Health care debaters in the Senate pushed to limit access to health insurance for immigrants and President Obama says they are not covered under his new health plan. This obviously raises concerns for this group who have one more limitation to worry about.

But with this new health plan that excludes a large part of our working population–many are concerned about unexpected health issues and their lack of access to health care.

Many of these immigrants in the U-S are already seeking alternative health care such as holistic healings and home remedies to assure some sort illness prevention.

But many with more serious health issues have a bigger concern for getting a health care provider.

Although this issue continues to be an ongoing debate both in Congress and in many communities–this issue is more likely to affect someone you know, love, or care about especially since a large percentage of non-U.S. citizens live in this country.

    I have not heard Obama denying health care to immigrants — that would be everyone that was not born in the US!

    What I think you meant to say is undocumented immigrants, those who are not here legally. This is the only group I have heard will not be covered by the Obama health care reform.

    I do agree that these people deserve access to health care but I don’t see it happening any time soon.
