Planned Parenthood is committed to helping immigrants get the care they need — no matter what. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from. Everyone deserves access to quality health care.

Due to an increased fear of deportation, harassment, and discrimination, immigrants may be reluctant to get the health care they need — especially since the Trump administration has launched attack after attack on immigrant communities.

Attacks on Immigrant Rights

Ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) took away protections for more than 800,000 immigrant youth. DACA helps immigrants who are undocumented go to school, get a driver's license, and get jobs that have provided many of them with access to health insurance. Undocumented immigrants have limited access to health insurance and aren’t eligible to buy marketplace health coverage. Many are only able to access health care coverage through their jobs if offered by their employer.

The Trump administration has said it’s targeting immigrants with criminal records, but that’s just not the case, as there have been cases of people without criminal records being detained like 10-year Rosa Maria, among others. Increased anti-immigrant rhetoric and deportation raids targeting any and all immigrants — regardless of whether or not they have a criminal record — have contributed to a culture of fear that keeps people from getting the health care they need.
