Study: Immigrants in Valley Less Likely to Call 9-1-1 Out of Fear of Deportation
MCALLEN – Medical experts in Hidalgo County are learning some residents are too scared to call for help, according to a new study.
Hidalgo County EMS conducted 600 interviews with individual people for the study.
They found people living in the U.S. illegally are more likely to refrain from calling 9-1-1 in a life or death situation.
The outreach director at La Union del Pueblo Entero, or LUPE, says the EMS’s findings only confirm what they have already known.
