A total of 37 percent of those eligible, documented Hispanics told researchers that they were "very worried" or "somewhat worried" that if they signed up for health insurance it "will draw attention" to their own or a family member's immigration status.

being in California, most of them are much, much less than a 12 hour drive from Mexico - a lot are less than 3 hours from the border. so they can drive on back home and get care there.
