  • 06/20/2018  Supervisor Wilma Chan and Colleagues Condemn Trump Border Policy  In Alameda County, one in three residents are immigrants, and over half of children in Alameda County live in families with at least one parent who is an immigrant. 'Alameda County is proud to welcome all immigrants into our community,' said Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan. 'The fact that children are being ripped from their parents' arms, children being moved around the country far from their parents, and being kept in cages is abhorrent.' Chan added, 'We are no longer talking about immigration policy. We are talking about the well-being of the vulnerable children and their parents. We need this President to stop separating families immediately.' Close to 6,000 migrant children have been separated from their parents after crossing the southern U.S. border since April, when Trump administration adopted a 'zero-tolerance' policy.
  • 06/20/2018  Alameda County officials speak out against border separations  Before and after President Donald Trump announced plans to halt the separating of undocumented children from their parents, a debate about the policy raged across the San Francisco Bay Area. On Wednesday, Alameda County supervisors spoke out strongly in opposition during a press conference in Oakland. 'We think it is wrong to criminalize entire population of children based on their national origin and based on their language,' said Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan, a second-generation American. 'We do need immigration reform, a bi-partisan bill that provides a path to citizenship and protects our children.'
  • 11/16/2017  Avoiding False Choices: Preserving the Entire Health Care Safety-Net is Essential(88KB) Alameda County's Fight for Medi-Cal released the following statement in response to the ongoing federal FY18 budget negotiations and tax reform debate. Our health is our wealth. As Congress rushes to seal deals on the federal budget and tax reform, we must insist they avoid false choices between health programs worth "saving" and those not. The agencies and services that make up our health care safety-net constitute an integrated whole reflective of our communities' values and commitments. When Congress pulls apart threads to make short-term deals, they create gaps in the safety-net that undermine community health and drive up costs in the long-term.
