Immigrant advocates rally for health coverage for all
Immigrant advocates rallied on Friday to call for health coverage for all.
The rally happened Friday morning at Van Der Donk Park in Yonkers. It was one of several across the state.
Advocates want state legislators to pass the "Coverage for All" bill. It would create and fund a basic health program for undocumented New Yorkers who are not eligible to participate in federal health care programs.
They argue this group has been among the hardest hit with little to no financial help from the state throughout the pandemic.
The Coverage For All bill has yet to be taken up on the floor in the state Senate and Assembly.
