Doctor Group Says Undocumented Immigrants Should Have Access to Health Care

A medical organization meeting in San Diego has stepped into the immigration reform debate, asserting that illegal immigrants should have access to health care so they don’t spread dangerous diseases to others.

“Access to care for immigrants is a public health issue that should be of concern to all of us,” said Dr. J. Fred Ralston, the president of the American College of Physicians, holding its Internal Medicine 2011 meeting at the San Diego Convention Center.
