  • Last week, the American Medical Association (AMA) adopted a resolution in its House of Delegates, opposing the presence of federal Immigration & Customs Enforcement Agents (ICE) in hospitals, clinics, and outpatient centers.

In medical facilities, patients and families should be focused on recovery and their health, not the ramifications of their immigration status.”
