dc.description.abstractUndocumented immigrants in the United States lack healthcare rights. The healthcare system does not work in their favor, and these immigrants are often excluded from healthcare legislation. Other factors such as workplace exploitation and the fear of authorities amplify the risks for undocumented immigrants’ health.

State and local laws provide an interesting insight into points of improvement of the U.S. healthcare system on a national level. In order for improvements to be made to the system, public support for inclusion of undocumented immigrants in healthcare reform needs to be increased. To achieve this, public debate on inclusion of undocumented immigrants in healthcare reform is imperative, and correctly informing these debates even more so. Debate on this topic is often misinformed, and this could be improved by increasing attention to factual research and empirical evidence, and providing the American public with that informationen_US
