2/They asked me to join forces and during several trips throughout Texas and into Mexico, we discovered that a lot had changed for the worse for women whose pregnancies intersected with their attempts at migration or legalization.
3/In the US, we found that pregnant unauthorized women hoping to legalize were skipping prenatal care to avoid being labeled a "public charge." Some saw a doctor for the first time when in the ER while in labor. Others chose to skip the hospital and give birth at home instead.
4/Later this week, we’ll publish what we learned about the impacts elsewhere. After ICE rolled back protections, some women were being returned across the border into squalid tent camps, while others others spent months detained in conditions that have been linked to miscarriage.
