As a followup to our latest reporting on this issue, please take note of the below podcast opportunity:

 “After last week’s striking change to immigration policy could lead millions of legal immigrants to drop out of programs like Medicaid, worried that they’ll lose their chance at a green card. This week’s PULSE CHECK podcast looks closer at the implications for patients and providers.

“It’s not just about government benefits,” Omolara Uwemedimo, a pediatrician at Northwell Health, said on the podcast. “People are living in fear.”

POLITICO immigration reporter Ted Hesson also joined the podcast to explain how the rule will work and to detail his reporting on how White House official Stephen Miller shaped the policy. Listen to the episode.
