As health professionals and public health advocates, Oregon PSR recognizes the significant health impacts on children, families, and all individuals facing the immigration system and the threat of deportation. Our values compel us to research, practice, and advocate for human rights, which includes the right to health for all immigrants. Oregon PSR works to counter anti-immigration sentiments in order to protect the health of all Oregonians, regardless of their country of origin or immigration status.
