This report highlights the challenges faced by the 6.3 million children whose parents migrated to the U.S. from Mexico. The children, most of who were born in the U.S. and are therefore citizens, face barriers to health insurance, experience challenges in accessing to health care, and are at high risk for some health conditions. The report is a collaborative effort between the Mexican National Population Council, the UC-Berkeley Health Initiative of the Americas and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.
