ASAHP Joins Letter to Congress on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

ASAHP joined numerous other associations in a letter to congressional leadership that urges Congress to ensure that all members of the health care workforce with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status are able to continue their employment, education, training, and research, with passage of a permanent legislative remedy as soon as possible. The letter states that by providing a legal pathway to permanent residency for undocumented Americans brought to the U.S. as children, Congress can help our country produce a diverse and culturally responsive health care workforce to meet the needs of underserved populations, promote health equity, and avoid unnecessary disruption in our education and training systems.
