Policy Research Report
California’s current homelessness crisis is unprecedented. In early 2020, more than 160,000 persons experienced homelessness on any given day, representing a 40% increase since 2015.

Journal Article
The United States is the only high-income nation without universal, government-funded or -mandated health insurance employing a unified payment system. The U.S. multi-payer system leaves residents uninsured or underinsured, despite overall health care costs far above other nations. Single-payer (often referred to as Medicare for All), a proposed policy solution since 1990, is receiving renewed press attention and popular support.

Journal Article
The study’s framework identifies state-level policies across five different domains — 1) public health and welfare benefits; 2) higher education; 3) labor and employment policies; 4) drivers’ licenses and identification systems; and 5) immigration enforcement. These domains impact the health of immigrants and that vary across states, especially for those without legal status.

Journal Article
Mexican immigrants, especially those who are undocumented, are among the least likely to have health insurance of any population. So they should enthusiastically support policies that expand coverage, right? Wrong, according to this article in the journal Salud Pública de México. In the study, Center Associate Director Steven Wallace and co-authors discuss the findings from four focus groups held with uninsured and mostly undocumented Mexican immigrants.

Journal Article
This article presents results from a study where the main objective was to identify key actors, roles, coalitions and opportunities for the development of social protection in the health of immigrants. We identified coalitions, interactive spaces and 10 categories of key actors for immigrant health strategies. New strategies for bi-national social protection for the health of undocumented immigrants are of high priority.
