Living in the Shadows http://kvpr.org en Fresno County Seeks to Eliminate Health Safety Net for the Undocumented http://kvpr.org/post/fresno-county-seeks-eliminate-health-safety-net-undocumented <p>Natividad, an undocumented farm worker in California’s San Joaquin Valley, lives with her children and three other families in a cramped house in the city of Fresno. Only her first name is being used because of her immigration status.</p><p>Natividad can’t read or write, and speaks only Mixtec, an indigenous language from Southern Mexico. She has diabetes and high blood pressure, and when she feels very sick, she heads to the Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno. She always carries a written note that asks for an interpreter.</p> Tue, 25 Feb 2014 11:30:00 +0000 Farida Jhabvala Romero & Reporting On Health Collaborative 28931 at http://kvpr.org Fresno County Seeks to Eliminate Health Safety Net for the Undocumented
