Immigrants are among the most vulnerable during this pandemic. Tens of thousands of asylum seekers and children are being held in detention facilities and unlicensed shelters that already lack medical care, shelter, food, clean water, and basic sanitation, and are already breeding grounds for disease. At the same time, many undocumented immigrants fear arrest and deportation if they seek medical attention. What is the current situation for immigrants being held near the border and living around the country? What can we do to advocate for their rights and wellbeing?

Featuring: Altaf Saadi, MD MSc, Massachusetts General Hospital and Instructor at Harvard Medical School; Kerri Talbot, Director of Federal Advocacy, Immigration Hub; and Arlene Fickler, Chair, JCRC of the Federation of Greater Philadelphia.
