Covered California works to ease deportation fears among Latinos
Los Angeles Daily News

Hoping to ease fears among legal residents whose family members are undocumented, Covered California officials on Wednesday partnered with several immigrant rights groups to assure those who qualify that applying for health coverage would not lead to deportations.

The assurances were made in a news conference in downtown Los Angeles where Covered California Executive Director Peter Lee was joined by members of Latino and Asian groups as well as officials with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
