AMA Journal of Ethics: Health Care for Undocumented Immigrants

AMA Journal of Ethics, January 2019

Loss of DACA status could relegate many of these young people to a life marked by fear and uncertainty. This issue considers the nature and scope of clinicians’ obligations to support and care for undocumented immigrants, refugees, and asylees."
