Immigration Policy Undermines the US Pandemic Response

Martha Tepepa

Economics Policy Note Archive from Levy Economics Institute

Abstract: Research Scholar Martha Tepepa explains how the US response to the COVID-19 crisis will be hindered by its approach to immigration policy. The administration’s "zero tolerance" immigration campaign creates a public health risk in the context of this pandemic, and the recent implementation of the "Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds" final rule penalizing noncitizen recipients of some social services will further restrict access to treatment and encumber the fight against the coronavirus.
