Today, undocumented immigrants face countless daily challenges, including obtaining access to affordable health care. At Puentes de Salud health clinic in South Philadelphia, volunteers address this problem by serving uninsured Latino immigrants who have nowhere else to turn and are increasingly reluctant to seek care in the current political climate. The timely documentary CLÍNICA DE MIGRANTES spotlights the bonds between the doctors and their patients, and goes beyond the politicized rhetoric to show the faces of real people in the middle of the immigration debate.
