Obamacare to bypass undocumented immigrants
Fresno Bee

Fresno farm laborer Javier Carreon tried for two weeks to ignore pain radiating up his right leg to his back, but when it got worse last week he finally went to a doctor.

“I hardly come to the doctor. I just came because it’s very painful; it’s very strong,” he said in Spanish in an exam room at the Clinica Sierra Vista health center on Elm Avenue.

He is one of many undocumented immigrants who delay care because they are poor, uninsured and in the country illegally.
