Testifiying On Immigrant Health At City CouncilMarch 18, 2019
In particular, Yleana’s testimony praises the council for its support of our work on immigrant health care:
For example, our client Mr. M, is an undocumented father of two U.S. citizen children and the husband to a U.S. wife. He is a resident of NYC and was suffering from heart failure. He urgently needed a heart transplant. We filed a family petition for Mr. M and worked with healthcare navigators to immediately get him enrolled in Medicaid. Once Mr. M had Medicaid, he was able to be placed on a heart transplant list, and in the summer of 2018, Mr. M had a successful heart transplant. As a result of our work, Mr. M is living and thriving with his family and continues to receive Medicaid, and the appropriate care he needs.
