Merced groups seek health coverage for undocumented immigrants
Merced Sun-Star

More than 250 people gathered at Tenaya Middle School in south Merced on Friday to ask that health care be accessible to all, regardless of immigration status.

The event, led by community residents and local nonprofits, served as a space for those who are unable to obtain health care coverage to share how it affects their everyday lives.

Currently, undocumented immigrants are excluded from the benefits of the Affordable Care Act.
