UNMH Treating Immigrants Sent to Albuquerque

MANY OF THE HUNDREDS OF IMMIGRANTS SENT TO ALBUQUERQUE FROM THE BORDER IN SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO NEED MEDICAL CARE. AND ALBUQUERQUE MAYOR TIM KELLER IS ASKING MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS, INCLUDING PEDIATRICIANS, TO VOLUNTEER TO ASSIST THEM. THE IMMIGRANTS WERE SENT TO ALBUQUERQUE AFTER ARRIVING AT THE BORDER IN SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO FROM CENTRAL AMERICA.

OFFICIALS AT UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL SAY IT’S IMPORTANT FOR THOSE PEOPLE TO GET MEDICAL CARE, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY CAN PAY FOR IT OR THEIR IMMIGRATION STATUS. KELLER SAYS ALBUQUERQUE IS NOT THEIR PERMANENT HOME, BUT THEY NEED TO BE HEALTHY BEFORE THEY ARE MOVED TO ANOTHER STATE.
