DACA Opens Door to Health Care

OAKLAND, Calif. — Jesus Pina Sanchez remembers all too vividly that morning two years ago when he was crossing the street near his home and got hit by a car in the crosswalk.

The then15-year-old was rushed by ambulance to Children’s Hospital in Oakland, X-rayed and treated for the bruises he suffered. He was discharged later that day and his parents were slapped with a $10,000 bill, which weeks later went to collections.

With the help of a pro bono attorney, the Sanchez family was not only able to squash the bill but to get $5,000 in settlement from the driver.
