Rep. Grijalva Praises Biden Admin Action to Expand Health Care to DACA Recipients

TUCSON, Ariz. – Today, Representative Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) issued the following statement:

“President Biden’s action to expand health coverage for DACA recipients is welcome news and long overdue. By enabling thousands of young aspiring Americans to obtain health care through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Medicaid, the Biden administration has given a sense of certainty to many families in this country who desperately need it. This is an important step in improving the lives of these young people and in creating more productive and thriving communities.

“Denial of basic health care is an economic peril for our country as it strains our hospitals and pushes people into poverty. I’ve long said illness does not discriminate on the basis of documentation or legal status and urged my colleagues in Congress and administrations past to provide affordable health care to all. This decision is a moral victory, historically significant and the right decision by the Biden administration.”
