New Publications on Health Care and immigration

While there has been some discussion of whether illegal immigrants should be covered by proposed government insurance plans, the enormous impact of immigration, both legal and illegal, on the health care system has generally not been acknowledged in the current debate. On August 19, the Center for Immigration Studies held a panel discussing the health care issue.

Out of this panel, the Center has produced several related publications:

* Facts on Immigration and Health Insurance — A memorandum by Steven A. Camarota

* Health Reform Legislation and Immigration — A memorandum by James R. Edwards, Jr.

* Does the Health Care Bill Bar Illegal Aliens from Taxpayer Funds? Not Really — A blog by Jon Feere

* Video of Health Care Panel — By Bryan Griffith

* Transcript of the Health Care Panel — By the Federal Transcript Service
