Deportation fears have legal immigrants avoiding health care – ABC News

More shame on the Trump administration for it’s ham handed handling of immigrants. Just what the U.S. needs, is sick people, many of  whom are working in our commercial kitchens, waiting on tables, cleaning up commercial facilities at night, and picking our food, are going to remain sick rather than seek out medical care. Does not make me feel
like this is a way to “Make America Great Again.”

The number of legal immigrants from Latin American nations who access public health services and enroll in federally subsidized insurance plans has dipped substantially since President Donald Trump took office, many of them fearing their information could be used to identify and deport relatives living in the U.S. illegally, according to health advocates across the country.
