Before the State of the Union, my guest, Isabel Bueso, and I sat down with @AlexSavidgeKTVU to discuss the need for recipients of medical deferred action, like Isabel, to remain in the United States to get the medical treatment they need and deserve.

Maria Isabel Bueso’s story inspired countless Americans to speak out for immigrants like herself who benefit from medically deferred action, a humanitarian initiative that is literally life-saving. It was my pleasure to welcome her to the U.S. Capitol today.
Trump Administration ends its effort to force kids receiving life-saving medical care to stop treatment and get out of the country. USCIS will reinstate the policy. Statement from Rep. Mark DeSaulnier (represents Isabel Bueso in California):
@realDonaldTrump Please extend Isabel Bueso’s Medical Deferred Action status. She has been in the US legally for 16 years & will die without her medication. She came here under a clinical trial to help herself and others. We must #SaveIsabel
“I have been feeling super scared and overwhelmed," said isabel bueso'>Maria Isabel Bueso, who came to the U.S. as a child for treatment of a rare genetic disease. "The treatment that I receive keeps me alive.” She must soon leave the country or face deportation.

Live now on @maddow : isabel bueso'>Maria Isabel Bueso, who just testified before Congress about the Trump administration’s move to deport critically ill immigrants. Bueso came from Guatemala as a child to participate in a study that led to a life-saving treatment for her rare disease.
During an @OversightDems hearing today, I asked Isabel Bueso what her reaction was when she first received the a heartless form letter from USCIS on August 13th giving her 33 days to leave the country. Her response is powerful. #SaveIsabel
The Trump Administration has effectively handed Concord resident, Isabel Bueso a death sentence. We will not stand for this & are fighting along side Isabel & her family. @maddow has more on this remarkable young woman & the contributions she brings to our community. #SaveIsabel
