Welcome Springfield

A Clark County non-profit is starting a research study on health care access for immigrants.  A grant from CareSource is paying for the project.

Carl Ruby is with the non-profit support group Welcome Springfield, which helps immigrants living in Clark County. He says a high rate of Latinos in the county are uninsured, and that causes problems for them.

Immigration reform might be dead in Washington for now, but some local advocates are still on the case. One of those is long-time conservative activist and teacher Carl Ruby. He’s part of a new initiative called Welcome Springfield—a takeoff on Welcome Dayton—to work on making Springfield a more appealing place for immigrants.
