We believe that the rights to access health care and have the ability to stay with your family are essential to living a happy and complete life. June is Immigrant Heritage Month, a time to celebrate immigrants in the United States. Part of honoring immigrant heritage in this country is fighting to protect immigrant rights, so that all people, regardless of immigration status, are able to live a life of dignity — no matter what.

Since day one, the Trump-Pence administration has been undermining the health and rights of immigrants and their families. Whether it’s the decision to rescind DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) or end TPS (Temporary Protected Status), which will rip millions of families apart, separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, rolling back prenatal protections and rights for parents involved in immigration proceedings including attempts to block people detained by ICE from their right to access abortion, or increased and harsh enforcement of detention and deportation, the hypocrisy of this administration’s so-called ‘family values’ is stunning.

Parents are fleeing violence and persecution, doing everything they can to protect their children. Immigration status is no reason to separate families.

The policy of separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border is more than just immoral and inhumane – it is a health crisis. As reported by Dylan Scott for Vox, the health risks in the family separation crisis are multi-faceted. Children are being subjected to trauma that could affect them for years, there is sometimes physical consequences to separating parents from their young children, and the medical rights of the children being detained may also have been violated.”

We cannot sit by silently while this administration continues to strip immigrants of their basic health, rights, and freedoms.

Fight back NOW to protect immigrant communities.

If you are an immigrant, we see you and we stand with you.

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. Planned Parenthood health center doors are open to you – no matter where you are from, what your immigration status is, or whether or not you have insurance.

The following information is guidance from Planned Parenthood to support patients and their families in being aware of their rights.
