New California law gives young illegal immigrant adults health coverage

New California law gives young illegal immigrant adults health coverage”

The signing of SB 104 makes California the first state in the country to provide government-funded health care to illegal immigrants.

The measure signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday increases protection to low-income, undocumented adults age 25 and younger for the state's Medicaid program.

Since 2016, California has allowed children under 18 to receive taxpayer-backed healthcare despite immigration status.

Officials expect the plan will cover about 90,000 people and cost $98 million to implement in its initial year, The Associated Press reported.

President Donald Trump has called the plan "crazy". "We are the most un-Trump state in America when it comes to health policy".

"If you happen to imagine in universal health care, you imagine in universal health care", Newsom stated.

"You can not be for universal health care unless you cover everybody, and in covering everybody you bring down the costs of your premiums, my premiums and the cost of the taxpayers", he stated.

In California, extending health advantages to undocumented immigrants is broadly accessible.

He said California doesn't 'treat their people as well as they treat illegal immigrants'.

California, the institute notes, has more immigrants than any other state.

"These California Democrats and those seeking national office need to recognize that they were elected to represent the American people in this country, not the people from elsewhere who violate our laws to enter our country", Ingraham said.

A national poll suggests that many Americans across the country are far less accepting of the notion of giving health coverage to those who came into the USA illegally. So far, government funded programs have certain health care coverage for illegal's such as medical emergencies or pregnancies.

Newsom rejected those proposals, suggesting that the estimated $3.4 billion cost of that plan was simply unrealistic.

"It's insane what they're doing". 'And it's mean. And it's very unfair to our citizens, and we're going to stop it.

"We're going to penalize the citizens of this state that have followed the rules, but we're going to let somebody who has not followed the rules come in here and get the services for free", said Republican state Senator Jeff Stone, according to CBS8.
