Houston Dreamer Jesus Contreras on Frontline Health Care Work in the Age of the Coronavirus
Part of a Series
Life for many frontline health care workers has changed dramatically this spring as the coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep through the United States. Houston-area paramedic and Dreamer Jesus Contreras joins the podcast this week to chat with Daniella and Ed about how COVID-19 has altered his work and affected his community. They also discuss the U.S. Supreme Court’s pending decision on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative and why the country should support Dreamers.
