Informativa telefónica sobre la inscripción latina en el ACA

La fecha límite de 31 de marzo para la inscripción en la Ley de Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio (ACA) se acerca rápidamente, pero la participación latina se está quedando atrás. La falta de solicitudes del seguro del plan de salud dentro de éste plazo significa que a millones de personas potencialmente elegibles se les puede cerrar la ventana de oportunidad, y podrían enfrentarse a una multa de impuestos como resultado.

NILC Urges Senate to Block Effort to Punish Kids

The Senate has scheduled a vote on an amendment by Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-NH, that would disqualify immigrant children in low-wage working families that pay income and payroll taxes from claiming the refundable portion of the Child Tax Credit (CTC). The National Immigration Law Center (NILC), along with the AFL-CIO, Church World Service, First Focus Campaign for Children, National Council of La Raza, the Coalition on Human Needs, and more than 100 other groups sent a letter to the Senate yesterday opposing artificial restrictions on the CTC. Here is a statement by Marielena Hincapié, NILC’s executive director.
