Andrea Skolkin, CEO of OneWorld Community Health Centers, speaks at a press conference in Omaha on June 5, 2013 about the release of a report from Human Impact Partners called "Family Unity, Family Health." The report shows how the outdated U.S. immigration system leads to poor mental and behavioral health and education outcomes for children who have one or more undocumented parents.
