Read the following chapters in the book Fresh Fruit, Broken Bodies by Seth Holmes: "Because They're Lower to the Ground" Naturalized Suffering: pp. 155-181 Conclusion: Change, Pragmatic Solidarity, and Beyond: pp. 182-201 .View the 4-minute video "Immigration and the Health Insurance Marketplace", to see an example of the rules and regulations that an immigrant would need to understand in just ONE state (Iowa) where choices of private health plans are available through the Affordable Care Act. Take notes on these two questions while watching video a. What is ONE (1) fact you learned about the Affordable Care Act as it affects immigrants? b. What is ONE (1) question you still have about the ACA or about health insurance in general? 3. Read the policy statement on Preventing Violations of Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights in Immigration Detention from the American Public Health Association. Now this is the assignment The questions: 1. In Holmes, we learn about an acquaintance of the author named "J.R." who holds strong opinions about the migrant farm workers who are the subject of the book. What do you think of J.R.? How do your opinions about immigrants and immigration policy in the U.S. compare to his views? Be sure to give a specific example of J.R.'s views and identify the page where you found the information. 2. Do you have a family member, friend, co-worker, or other acquaintance who holds opinions that are similar to those of J.R.? What would you say to such a person about immigrants, their health, or about immigration policy in the U.S., based on what you have learned from reading Holmes? 3. The Triqui workers described by Holmes have opinions about their exposure to pesticides. a. What do you think of their views about this (Identify the page where you found evidence of their viewpoints)? b. If you were a health educator who had access to the Triqui farm worker community, who would you try to educate first about pesticides in order to help the farm workers in the long run? In other words, would it be the best way to achieve your goal of less pesticide exposure to spend your time educating the Triqui farm workers, or would you first try educating some other group of people about this issue in order to achieve the overall goal of less pesticide exposure among the farm workers? 4. In the conclusion of Holmes's book, he talks about the concept of "medicalization". a. What is his opinion of most education and training of public health and medical professionals (identify the page where you found evidence of his viewpoint)? b. Can you identify an example from your own observations outside of this course in which an issue of social justice has been medicalized? Your observations can be based either on things you have learned in other courses at MSU, or based on experiences you have had elsewhere in your work or social life. 5. Based on your experience viewing the 4-minute YouTube video "Immigration and the Health Insurance Marketplace"... a. What is ONE (1) fact you learned about the Affordable Care Act as it affects immigrants? b. What is ONE (1) question you still have about the ACA or about health insurance in general? 6. Based on what you read in the policy statement on "Preventing Violations of Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights in Immigration Detention" from the American Public Health Association: a. Why do you think policy makers (i.e. members of the U.S. Congress or members of state legislatures) have mostly ignored the proposals of the APHA, even though these proposals are based partly on the evidence available from public health research? b. APHA is calling for better oversight of immigrant detention centers - many of which are run by private, for-profit companies - because of incidents involving intrusive and unwanted 'gynecological care' that violates immigrant women's right to bodily autonomy. What is ONE example of a specific incident in which this happened? (Do not copy and paste your explanation from the position statement - use your OWN WORDS to describe what happened). c. If you were going to e-mail, call, tweet, or snail-mail a letter about this to the legislator who represents you in the New Jersey state legislature, who would you contact? d. What would you tell that Assembly member or state Senate member about immigrant health and about the APHA's policy statement?
