A Kidney for Jesus

Jesus Navarro is dying of kidney failure. But he’s an undocumented immigrant. Patty Espinosa reports on the struggles and misunderstandings one man has gone through to get the help and care he needs to save his life.

I reported, produced and edited this story for NBC Latino. It was published on their site as the first installment of a new series called Student Lens. Camera by Roberto Daza.

      Thank you! It was definitely a story I felt needed to be told. Issues of immigration and health care will be a big topic in the political arena during the 2012 presidential elections. I will continue to update the site with new stories as they are published. Keep checking back, and spread the word 🙂
