WJCNY Applauds Governor Cuomo’s Protection of State Medicaid Coverage to DACA Recipients

The Worker Justice Center of New York applauds the decision announced on Tuesday this week by Governor Cuomo to maintain state-funded Medicaid for DACA recipients, regardless of whether Congress enacts legislation to extend the program.  Continuing to provide for basic health benefits for New York’s 42,000 residents who benefit from this program is an important step toward upholding our state’s values as a welcoming place for immigrants to live and thrive.
