California lawmakers agree to health benefits for immigrants

California will become the first state in the country to pay for some adults living in the country illegally to have full health benefits as the solidly liberal state continues to distance itself from President Donald Trump’s administration.

Democrats in the state Legislature reached an agreement Sunday afternoon as part of a broader plan to spend $213 billion of state and federal tax money over the next year. The agreement means low-income adults between the ages of 19 and 25 living in California illegally would be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, the joint state and federal health insurance program for the poor and disabled.

    The law makers should be sent to an asylum for the criminally insane! If they are here illegally the law makers need to uphold the law they were elected to do. The cities are bankrupt all around me and there is trash and homeless. This is a clear sign that these out-of reality Law Makers don’t give a Damn about American Citizens. Where do they think we are going to get this money from? Over 60% of the CA budget is for health and human services. In one of the Richest states in America we seem to have the most living in poverty.
