WCAX - Vermont is on the verge of providing health care to several dozen undocumented migrants.
The idea is to expand eligibility to Dr. That state program is similar to Medicaid and provides health and dental care to children and pregnant women. Right now, 61, Vermont children under the age of 19 are on Dr. More than 1, pregnant women are, too. Now, a bill in the Statehouse would expand that coverage to undocumented children and pregnant women. Producer Daniela Fierro and I spoke with one migrant woman about what this could mean for her and her family.
Yadira, 27, is an undocumented worker and mother who lives on a Northeast Kingdom farm. Her oldest child was born in Mexico and her youngest was born in America. Are they going to take my little brother?
Yadira says that even at a young age, her older son has perspective on their life in the shadows. She says bill H. Black says there are an estimated undocumented children in Vermont and 20 undocumented women get pregnant in the state each year. Anotherwould be spent to educate migrants about the program and get them ed up.
Advocates like Migrant Justice say this is welcome news that could prevent a medical tragedy. The House is expected to vote on that bill this week. Phil Scott was asked about it last week and says he supports it. Undocumented women farmworkers toil under unique challenges. Meet the Team.
